Will Spring Ever Get Here???

OK today I am showing the new spring arrangement that I made for the ledge or faux mantle between my kitchen and dining room...I started out by purchasing about $15 worth of supplies from my local dollar store.  Beautiful things in lovely spring colours.  And YES, they sat here on the dining room table like this for many days...

It peaked the interest of this guy and I knew that if I wanted things to stay lovely, I had to do something with them pronto!  Doesn't he look smug he's saying "What?! - you left them here unattended...they are community property now!" - LOL  (Actually I think I startled him as I snuck up on him with my camera)

I got out my trusty metal planter - the same one I used for my Christmas arrangement, and got busy.  I didn't even put floral foam in the bottom - I just tucked the flowers loosely into it, tweaking them as I went.  Once that was done, I put the plastic eggs on shisk-a-bob sticks and tucked them in as well.

I added some owls, a bunny and a pretty spring box to the end of the ledge as well...

There you have it!   A great spring/Easter display - just the thing to help make me feel Spring is a little closer here in Ontario...I needed this because this is view from my patio door in the kitchen this morning...

As you can see...someone forgot to tell Mother Nature that we should be warming up and having sunny skies...

Hope the weather is warm and sunny where you are!

  5. Your flower arrangement is very pretty. Winter is hanging on till the bitter end isn't it? Supposedly a storm moving into our part of Ontario later on Monday and overnight into Tuesday. YUCK!
