Spring fever has temporarily stymied the creative juices in me but I did come across some very pretty centerpiece ideas over at Martha’s (Martha Stewart dot com).

The wonderful thing about this time of year is that you can find flowers for a song (well, maybe not a song but truly affordable) and with the help of some warm weather and a sunny day, you can set a festive table and serve almost any meal and you, family and/or guests will be happy.
It’s pretty universal; the advent of spring gives everyone’s spirits a boost. I try to capitalize on that feeling and the energy rush it provides, and clean, plan, and entertain.
Where decorating is concerned there are some rooms that seem like the very definition of spring…like these rooms recently featured in House Beautiful. Designed by Doug Davis of Tracery Interiors, this Alabama home speaks “spring”…in part because of the pink accents. I am not usually a huge fan of pink in décor for the home, but the subtle splashes in this instance have me hooked.

I think this is home feels light and airy (very spring-like), in spite of the hints of formal living. It’s got to be the pink touches. To read more about this house, including the interview Mimi Read conducted with Paige Schnell and Doug Davis click HERE
What are your thoughts this spring? Have you come down with a case of Spring Fever?
We are having Autumn here at the moment and going into winter. I definitely love flowers in the house, though they can be quite expensive here. I love opening the house up after winter and getting ready for spring also. Such a great time of year. Leahxx
That’s right, I forgot that you are in Autumn. I didn’t realize that flowers were pretty expensive in Australia. While the price has definitely gone up over the years, during the spring there is a market that sells daffodils for only $1.50 per bundle of 12 stems. You have displayed some lovely table settings this past season that featured some lovely flowers…do you grow them in the warmer months?
Thanks so much for stopping by and for taking the time to comment, I love reading your thoughts.

As you well know, I’m more than ready for Spring this year. I’ve enjoyed watching the daffodils pop up and now I’m ready for it to warm up and dry out. I loved the flower pics in this post. Makes me yearn for Spring even more. I think I’ll go out buy some for the house to cheer it up!
I can picture your surroundings with freshly blooming daffodils. Are your foxglove up yet?
