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
