Is it spring yet? I think I’ve been coaxing it along by creating a simple rustic centerpiece on our outside table. It was 48 here in Michigan, which is a heat wave so I was outside disposing of all signs of winter decorating.
I cut back my Russian sage from the landscaping and fixed a couple of birdhouses that didn’t fare well over the winter. I have birds that are building nests already so getting the house fixed was a priority for me. I enjoy feeding them and watching the entire process of nest building, laying eggs, and seeing the hatch.
Anyway, while I was outside enjoying the day I decided to give the dining table on our front porch a touch of spring. I purchased nothing. I made the grapevine wreath myself from vines that grow in our woods. The apple blossom wreath was repurposed, and you can see that here. I have a collection of the sea green bottles, and you can see them here. And the candle just in case the power goes out.
It was a tad windy so I had a hard time keeping the candle lit, so in some of the pictures it went out before I had a chance to capture the picture. I sat at the table into the evening reading and chatting on the phone. It sure was nice to be outside enjoying my porch again.
