Knee Deep & Foot High...


Spring has Sprung...

And we are knee deep and foot high in snow here in Minnesota!  We got over 12" of snow here where we are and it took almost a whole day to dig out.  Poor little Hannah, the snow was deeper than she is tall, the neighbors probably think we are nuts (and it's probably true), we were out walking, plowing and shoveling paths for the little honey to get around the yard.  She loves to do a perimeter check every morning and night, so tonight we will go out and finish the rest of the path around this big old yard.  OKAY, so off task...



Today, I decided it was time for a little Spring here at Pendra's Place, so I started with an old cheese ball plate and cover that was a wedding gift 36 years ago...where did the time go?  I glued on one of the Dollar Store candlesticks with E6000 Glue, this stuff works!  And presto...I have my one and only coveted cloche's, and I love it!


This is a little wall between my living room and my kitchen, some day I want to remove it!!  It is about the center of my main living area, so it seemed a perfect spot for Spring to begin...


This is an old dry sink, the kind that they used to put the old pitcher and bowl on.  I use it as a small dresser to hold my silver and my wine glasses.  Perfect!
 

I added a little birds nest...


                                               with Mama and baby...so sweet!


I thought I'd share another photo of my "Lady Bug" Aerogarden, I planted with Petunia's.  The last time I shared it with you it was probably 1/2 the size... love her sweet little face!


It still doesn't have any blooms, probably shouldn't have planted her so close to a window where she can see Winter outside...she may be a little confused!


                   Spring has sprung at Pendra's Place...
                            even if we're knee deep and foot high... in snow!

                                                Hugs,
                                                         Pendra

I know Spring will hit you before you know it! Looks like you're getting ready inside anyway!

I love seeing the plate for the cloche... which happens to be my favorite way to decorate. With cloches! Great idea to scout the dollar store for just the right piece to use with the cheese ball plate! And voila! a lovely vignette!
