Is It Spring Yet?

Hello, Dear Ones. Well, the temperatures outside aren't too cold but I'm still just pretending it's Spring. In the house anyway. So come on into my living room and I'll show you.
Here's the fireplace. We haven't been in our house quite a year yet and I'm still changing things around. I need something, I think, on each side of my mirror. What do you think? I think it looks a bit nekked. Oh, well.
I got a new blue and white urn so I had to put some greens in it. I, like so many of you, love my blue and whites.
Here you can see my blue and whites a little better.
 On to the coffee table. More blue and white, flowers, balls and dogs! Sounds like the back yard, doesn't it?
Blue and white plates on the wall and dogs! I had the dogs here on The Finn for Christmas and I tied little red ribbons around their tiny little necks. After I de-Christmased I decided I liked my dogs right where they were so here they are! Well, minus the red ribbons.
 The last thing I'll show you today is the three sections of my half wall separating the living room from the kitchen. Guess what? More blue and whites!
 Here is the middle part of the half wall. I grabbed a big urn I've used many times and made a spring floral for it! See? It looks like spring! I poked a pair of blue and white candle sticks on each side and I liked it!
Here's the last part of the half wall. I may have too many 'little blues and whites' here. But hey! I just poked these up here and this will probably look different next week. Do you fiddle with your vignettes all of the time? 

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Songs~

Blue on Blue

Blue on blue, heartache on heartache
Blue on blue now that we are through
Blue on blue, heartache on heartache
And I find I can't get over losing you

I walk along the street we used to walk
Two by two, lovers pass
And as they're passing by, I could die
'Cause you're not here with me

Now the trees are bare
There's sadness in the air
And I'm as blue as I can be

Blue on blue, heartache on heartache
Blue on blue now that we are through
Blue on blue, heartache on heartache
And I find I can't get over losing you

Night after lonely night, we meet in dreams
As I run to your side
You wait with open arms, open arms
That now are closed to me

Through a veil of tears
Your vision disappears
And I'm as blue as I can be

Blue on blue, heartache on heartache
Blue on blue now that we are through
Blue on blue, heartache on heartache
And I find I can't get over losing you

Blue on blue, heartache on heartache
Blue on blue now that we are through
Blue on blue

  8. Hi, dear friend - I love the way you are 'springing'. Your blues and whites are perfect. Just so you know, you can't have too many blues and whites. I have a few and keep adding more, especially since I inherited my dear, little mother's cobalt blue collection and her blues and whites. Now I need a bigger house!

  10. I like your blues and whites and all your dogs. I tried to comment on your more recent post today about your doll house and the return of Tang, but couldn't get it to post. I tried three times and hope it doesn't post 3 times.
