I'm Dreaming of Spring!



I went to a few thrift stores today, looking for valentine decorations. I didn't see anything like that, but I kept being drawn to things that made me think of Spring. I know, it's crazy, seeing as it's only January 6th. Especially since we are getting 6-10" of snow tomorrow!

This is what I would love to be doing right now. Watering my flowers, with a big yellow bow in my hair!

C.U.T.E. I wish I could read the label on the bottom of these, because I have no idea who made them.

I wouldn't mind sitting on a big old toadstool right now either! With a birdie perched on my shoe.

And they have all congregated on this little metal shelf that I found at an antique store before Christmas. I think I might have it hanging upside down, but these guys seem safe from falling off this way. Yes, I'm dreaming of Spring, but all that snow tomorrow will definitely bring me back to reality! Now if you would like to see lots more vintage things, head over to Coloradolady, where Suzanne is our wonderful hostess every week!

Everyone seems to find such neat things at thrift and Goodwill stores. Guess I do not know what to look for. You found some really neat items.

I don't blame you for wanting to think Spring. It helps you make it through the loooong winter. Cute figurines.

Jacqueline said...

Spring fever is catchy when you start giving me ideas of sitting pretty on mushrooms. I'm trying to ignore the wind storm...it's more than a Winnie the Pooh blustery day, it's stormin...I'll take those April showers anyday to bring some May flowers!

The last one looks a little like Hummel but it can't be without the maker's mark, very nice though.

The garden girl is my favourite. We have lots of snow already, and the winter is just beginning!

Erika said...

Hi Carol,
What cute little figurines. I'm dreaming of spring too. We are in for a very cold night tonight and a high of -1 tomorrow. I'm just happy to see that temperatures should be in the 30's next week.
Stay warm.

Hi Carol! I think these cold temps have us all dreaming of spring! We are having record breaking cold here in MO. I don't think I like it. Your little figurines are so cute. I'm glad they came to your house to live where they will be cared for. That toadstool is adorable! Have a wonderful weekend! Twyla
