Springing Up


Hello, Dear Ones! I'm getting Spring fever even though it's not time yet! I don't care! I really enjoy Christmas and all of the Christmasing but it feels good to put it all away and start Springing up!
So I'll show you my early Springing up in my china cabinet.

 My china cabinet is pretty olden. Got it back in the late 1970s. It has some little touches of burl wood on the doors and at the very top. I love that!

I had to swing open the doors wide so you can see! Just like swinging open the windows to let in a nice Spring breeze! 

 I pulled out my old Franciscan Desert Rose dishes and a few other little pieces. This pattern just makes me smile and if you know me ~ I just love to smile! :)

Doesn't this dish pattern just make you smile? Love the little gravy boat with it's attached underplate, sugar bowl and creamer. The little sugar bowl's lid has a little pink rose bud as the tiny little knob. I'm smiling again. That's a tiny little individual Fostoria salt/pepper in a tiny little tray. Oh, the bunny egg dish is peeping over the gravy boat and is shouting, "Look at me! Look at me!" :)

My platter and two sets of Desert Rose Salt/Peppers. The set on the right is olden and the set on the left, not so olden. But aren't they cute? Are you smiling yet? I am! :) Also I've poked down my Fostoria butter dish. Sparkly, shiny, Springy!

 The green bunny tray just looks like it belongs with my old Franciscan Desert Rose dishes. Like my little salt/peppers, some of the dishes are olden ones and some are not so olden. You may ask do I care? Nah! :)
Now the napkins rings are not Franciscan, just cute with little tiny rose buds.

I've poked in three different sets of glasses. These are very olden pink depression glass. 

 These are very olden too and are so dainty and fragile. There's a little etching around the rim and they're pink too!

 My last set of pink glasses...not so olden but very pink and swirly!

 I saw the cut glass small pitcher at Marshalls a few years ago, fell in love with it and the rest is history! :)

 Are you smiling yet?

I've hung kind of a Eastery eggy tassel on my china cabinet door and just so you'll know...I'm still smiling.


Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Spring Fever

A little bird, he told me so
He said come on, get on the go
Open your eyes the sky is full of butterflies
The blossoms on the trees stir up the honey bees
Spring makes my fever right

Spring fever, spring is here at last
Spring fever, my heart’s beating fast
Get up, get out spring is everywhere

Well if you feel the wanderlust
Just grab a car or hop a bus
In every town there’s excitement to be found
So much is happening
Don’t miss the joy of spring
The world’s in love just look around

Spring fever comes to everyone
Spring fever, it’s time for fun
Get up, get out spring is everywhere

Spring fever, it’s spring fever time
Spring fever, watch that fever climb
Get up, get out spring is everywhere

Spring is everywhere 
~ sung by Elvis

  9. Shelia, your china cabinet looks very pretty and I don't think it's too early to enjoy those lovely soft pinks and greens. We're digging out from the snow, ice pellets and freezing rain we got yesterday but the sun is shining :) Pamela

  22. Hi Shelia,

    I'm definitely smiling now. :)

    My mom has the Desert Rose pattern; she's had it for years. It's so pretty, isn't it? She also has those little rosebud salt and peppers, and I've always loved them.

    Your china cabinet looks wonderfully springy now. Thanks for sharing, Shelia. Visiting from Pink Saturday. Have a great weekend!

    XO,
    Denise

  28. Sweet Shelia, thanks for stopping by and you were pretty close with the name "Sammy"!! Well, I googled the Canon Rebel T3i and my! I think its much too advanced for my limited skills! But then again.....and besides "Sammy" has to meet his...demise first. :))

  29. Shelia I just love your spring touches! Your china is beautiful and I love the green dishes you have mixed in! I have many pieces of depression glass and your pink glasses are beautiful!

  30. Well Hello Miss Shelia. I know exactly what you mean...spring just kind of overtakes you and makes you yearn for things. Warm weather, flowers, budding trees, little birds and nests, and bunnies...yep I understand completely. Hey I'm lovin following you on Pinterest. You have the most amazing pins. don't you love it? I am on there way too much...even make hubby look...and he always says the same thing "what is it called? why is it called that?" round and round we go...oh well. If there were chickens and cows on there more he would take notice! hahahaha...
    Have a blessed weekend sweet friend.

  34. Your Desert Rose dishes are making me smile for two reasons: 1) they are so pretty in your china cabinet and 2) because my grandma had a whole set of these dishes too and they remind me of her. I also love pink depression glass so this was a happy post for me all around!

  40. Loved your "Springing up"! Franciscan Desert Rose is one of my favorite patterns. Franciscan anything !!!! My Aunt had Franciscan apple ... including glassware. Such sweet memories.

  41. Talk about a breath of fresh air. I love the napkin rings and the tassle. I'm afraid spring is a ways off though!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Did you know that was the pattern of my dishes that I registered for when I got married? I have since moved on to another pattern since then, but I loved them while I had them. Yours look so pretty in your hutch mixed with the green dishes too. They're very "Springy"!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Certainly feels like spring weather here! ;-)
    Your dishes do look like spring, Shelia. I recently saw a complete set of the green with the rabbits for sale at a consignment shop here. I've vowed to not bring home more dishes, but they were very tempting. I have a little pitcher in this pattern. ;-)
    Happy Springing! ~ sarah

  44. Hi Shelia *hugs*
    I'm loving the pretty springtime and pinkness in your china cabinet. Its a very nice olden one and you can change it up so nicely.

    I do adore that green bunny egg plate.

    It makes me think I probably should do something new with my cabinet as well. I've been wanting to paint or paper the back of the inside..hmmmmm... you have reminded me.

    I hope you are having a wonderful day

  51. Your cabinet turned out great. Desert Rose brings back memories of my dear sweet Grandma. It really mixes well with the green dishes. I have several pieces of the green. It is so easy to use in several spots of my home.
