Springtime Breezes

Spring brings a wash of all things new. The refreshment of rain, birds building their nests and flowers waking in full bloom.


My African Violet has been so full of blooms.  I just had to take it out to the garden and enjoy its beauty.


This Old Royal Bone China sugar and creamer were purchased on one of my trips to Chicago.

My daughter brought the Russian Orenburg Lace Scarf on her first trip to Russia.
Spring makes way for summer. Taking a few minutes to enjoy the delightful spring breeze is such a refreshing way to start the day.

Good Morning, the photos are lovely, like from another era. That violet is huge!! Also that sugar and creamer set, very pretty! I was awoken by a bird singing this morning, but the sun was not even up yet, sure hope he got a worm! LOL
Hugs, Roxy

Your violet is gorgeous. So nice to have tea outside. Reminds me of a time long ago -- elegant! Have a lovely week.

This is lovely, Jocelyn. The sugar and cream is very pretty sitting on their tray and I love the scarf and the hat too. Thank you for sharing and have a beautiful day.

Blessings,

So pretty and feminine- I love it! The scarf your daughter bought is beautiful and I love the pretty sugar and cream set on the tray. Your violet looks so pretty- I haven't tried growing one in years.

What a sweetly serene scene. I am a bit late to the TOHOT party this week due to my college semester finals but I'm so glad that I didn't miss this. Have a wonderful week.
