Is It Too Early For Spring?

Hello, Dear Ones! Is it too early for Spring??  I'm asking myself. Now don't get me wrong, I'm loving our south Texas weather - not too cold and some days are very spring like - but I'm thinking blooms and warmness all around. Well, I started in my dining room to Spring it up a bit.
 As you can see, I still have no drapes up yet.
 Okay, back to Spring. I always think of birds when I think of Spring so I poked some of my white birds under some cloches and a little bit of greens and it was beginning to look a little like Spring in here!
 The sun is shining in so prettily this morning. Oh, I crocheted that tablecloth many many years ago but I still enjoy bringing it out. I think I'm really a Victorian lady at heart because I like lots of stuff and I love crochet doilies and laciness.
  I poked down some more Springness on the buffet and of course it had to all sit on a lacy runner.
On the left hand side I've placed (notice I didn't say 'poked') some of my silver pieces - a sugar scuttle and salt and pepper. I placed some greens in a pretty vase and added my Dresden covered bowl.
A little cloud like white covers one of my silverware boxes - a tureen, birdie salt and peppers and again sitting on a lacy doily.

The right side has a beautiful plate my sister in law gave me and a hand painted porcelain tea set my little mother gave me many years ago. I know this may be too much for some folks but I love my stuff! Things are beginning to bloom a little in my dining room.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

It Might As Well Be Spring

I'm as restless as a willow in a windstorm
I'm as jumpy as puppet on a string
I'd say that I had spring fever
But I know it isn't spring
I am starry eyed and vaguely discontented
Like a nightingale without a song to sing
O why should I have spring fever
When it isn't even spring
I keep wishing I were someone else
Walking down a strange new street
And hearing words that I've never head
From a girl I've yet to meet
I'm as busy as spider spinning daydreams
Spinning spinning daydreams
I'm as giddy as a baby on a swing
I haven't seen a crocus or a rosebud
Or a robin on the wing
But I feel so gay in a melancholy way
That it might as well be spring
It might as
Well be

 ~ sung by Frank Sinatra



  1. Beautiful room and decor, Shelia. I didn't even notice there were no drapes. I think your windows look lovely even without them!

  2. I don't blog anymore, but I do enjoy your blog!! I don't think your decor is "too much"...I think it's PERFECT!!!

  3. Oh...and I LOVE your dining area!

  4. Shelia, I love your table. The lace cloth and the birds under cloches, so sweet. I am thrilled you named the sugar scuttle...I have one ,I found in an old shop and I had no idea what it's purpose could be. Thank you. I am longing for spring and it's 54 days away...not long now. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  5. Not too early!! I saw crocuses poking out from the snow today. Let the countdown begin!!

  6. Im not around blog land much these days Shelia, but it is joyous to see the gorgeous homes you create no matter where you are - and I especially remember that magnificent staircase and balustrade you had in that lovely house (a couple back now I think?) So much has happened for so many people in blog land over the past 7-8 years. Blessings to you my dear.

    1. Oh, hi, Rose! Oh, I've missed you and how nice to hear from you! I hope all is well with you and you don't know how much I appreciate your kind words.
      Be a sweetie,
      Shelia ;)

  7. Love the white birds under glass. I am ready for SPRING!!! I started Spring cleaning this Winter already. One of the best things I can do right now for entertainment during the cold weather is to deep clean. All the best!

  8. I'll tell you, during my visit to Dallas last week, it was almost as cold as it had been in Michigan -- and twice as wet! (Then I came home to 6" of snow!) Believe me, spring can't come soon enough!

  9. Hermosa decoración..los pajarillos ya comienzan a llamar la primavera...que la disfrutes mucho...Acá en Costa Rica...verano, pero ha hecho mucho frío y ha llovido como nunca en algunas provincias. Saludos

    1. Hi Shirley! I forget that our seasons are opposite. Hope you haven't had too much rain and the weather warms up soon! Take care.
      Be a sweetie,
      Shelia ;)

  10. I am looking forward to Spring. I do not enjoy the cold weather at all. Your room is so pretty and bright and cheery. I would love to sit in there with you enjoying a cup of tea.

  11. Love your "stuff". I love French country and there is always stuff!Snowy and cold in Iowa. less than 6o days till spring.

  12. Love all of your spring decorations. Can you share an update on Susan from Ash Tree Cottage? I am not on FB. I have been praying for her healing.

  13. Love all your, its not too much....its very pleasing !!! It is just right for an early spring décor. Yes, any news about Susan ??

    Not to be contrary, but, I love winter !! It is fresh and clean, time to snuggle in, not to worry about outside chores, great weather for all kinds of cooking and I am not a wilted lily every day and night !!!

    Yes, am also deep cleaning, catching up on movies, and other tasks.....

    Best to you.....Cleo

  14. It looks so pretty in your dining room. I am so happy that January is almost over and looking forward to no snow for February. Hope you have a nice week.

  17. Avoid being trapped in a pyramid scheme. There are lots of reputable MLM opportunities, but many unscrupulous operators exist as well. All pyramid schemes are to be avoided. Although it might look promising at first glance, you could end up losing a lot of money in this type of business.

  19. My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. here is his Email: or call/text him on his WhatsApp +2347012841542
