Spring Fluffing Party/Outdoor Wednesday

Today I have chosen to do a combo post with Rhoda's Spring Fluffing party and Susan's Outdoor Wednesday.

We are enjoying such beautiful weather here that nothing in my house could compare with what's happening outside.

Moving things around a little. Brought out this tin bird picture that I purchased last summer.


Brought out this beautiful dried flower nest that was a gift from my sweet Aunt Jean.


Moved some platters around. Recognize the big white one? Yes it's supposed to be on my kitchen table that hubby stole!! The solution to that problem is in the works.


Now let's move outside...




Beautiful redbuds blooming.
One more picture I have to share....
My older son has always had a love of frogs. I have many pictures of him over the years holding frogs and toads of various sizes. He caught this one on Tuesday from our pond. Don't you just want to kiss him on the lips? Well, I think by all of the noise he makes out there he's hoping some girl frog will kiss him on the lips.


Thanks for coming by today. Please be sure to pop over to Rhoda's and Susan's for more spring inside and out!

Stacey: Beautiful! LOVE the nest! Love it!! And the frog? I saw one similar to that one under a rock at my pond and I very neary had a heart attack! He and I, eyeball to eyeball and I screamed at the top of my lungs! We never saw him again after that....I don't know why :)

I love everything, especially the tin bird picture. Well, maybe I didn't love the frog, but maybe that's because it reminded me of past boyfriends. *GRIN* j/k*!

Stacey, Spring looks beautiful inside and outside your home. Love that tin bird picture, and your what platter might just need to not go back on the table. It makes that transferware plate pop! Now about the frog, he is a beauty! laurie

Yira said...

Love the frog....I have to show this to my little girl - she loves animals. Nice pics.

Just a little something from Judy said...

I am looking forward to things coming alive in my outdoor gardens. We are definitely behind in that area. I liked all of your pictures, especially the bird nest, and the pink flowering trees.

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Spring has sprung at your house, Stacey. Thanks for joining the party!

Nancy said...

Morning Stacey, I love your Spring! The nest from your Aunt is fabulous! Can a frog be cute??? yep, it can! He's a prince waiting to come out!...lol :) Nancy

Love the tin bird picture and that live frog was a surprise!

Look at that frog! LOL! What a hoot. :-) And your redbud tree is gorgeous. It's one of my favorites. Love your indoor shots as well! Great vignettes!

Happy OW...

XO,

Shelia said...

Hi Stacey! How pretty your spring is! I laughed out loud when I saw the frog! Reminded me of how my son loved frogs too!
Be a sweetie,

LOVE. THE. FROG. Seriously, he's so, um, cute?

Love all the decor, too! Beautiful inside and out!

Candy said...

Spring is coming and love is in the air...and the pond. I am sure he is quite handsome in the frog world in his pretty green suit.
Happy Sunny Day, Candy

rosabeer said...

Redbuds are so beautiful in spring! Spring is here! The red transferware is beautiful - a favorite of mine!

Picket said...

Beautiful post girl...love the pics and that one of the frog! lol lol Oh my word reminded me of when my boys were little and use to catch things and come running in the house to show me...lordy I had many a moments of screaming and shouting "Beam me up Jesus!" lol lol

Brenda@View From The Pines said...

Sure is a big handsome frog, I must say! I wish I had some that big. Probably would scare the dogs back inside when I have trouble getting them in!
Brenda

Light and Voices said...

Happy Outdoor Wednesday! Frogs were few and far between up in Northern Wisconsin. I noticed that they are coming back in numbers slowly. Glad to see your area still has so many and large ones at that. I don't think if your son kisses the frog he will marry a princess but perhaps.

How sweet of your aunt to give such a cute nest. And I love the picture of the birds. Thanks for the tour.

Marsha's Mpressions said...

Stacey,

Thanks for your kind words on my blog, Marsha's Mpressions today. Being a new blogger, it's nice to get feedback. You have a very interesting blog! Hope you don't mind if I visit again.:)

Pixeltrash said...

Really pretty! I love seeing Spring in the air. I wonder where you're located. We, in NY, don't have a lot of Spring so far. I have some little bitty plants which are about 1 or two inches out of the ground. I guess that will have to do!

kbbryant said...

I enjoyed your indoor and outdoor pictures. Frogs can be very noisy at times can't they?

Elisabeth said...

Wow...that is some FROG! Thanks for sharing.

Charlene said...

Your red bud tree photo was wonderful! And the frogs... yes, I know about those little buggers. They do make a lot of noise but, I am glad to see our frogs back after the winter. When I went outside the other night I saw them hopping across the sidewalk. I told the "Welcome Back". Thanks for sharing

proudgrits11 said...

Love, Love, the frog. I'm jealouse. Too dry here. Perhaps later in the spring. Trees leafing out and birds are busy doing their spring thing. Eating me out of house and home. Sunflower seeds, scratch grain every day and refill the fountain for their happy bird bathing. A few honey bees are visiting the fountain and wasps and butterflies are showing up. Must be spring!
Love your pics. Inside and out.

Angie said...

Beautiful - inside and out! Love that tin bird picture!

Misti of Studio M Designs said...

Hee hee love the froggie! My dog would have a blast chasing frogs... Your house looks great! I have got to get busy getting my Spring things out. I did spray paint several things creamy white, but have yet to decorate with them!

Mama said...

Hey Stacey,I agree your home is beautiful both inside and out and Mr Frog is a handsome guy, have you tried kissing him? lol. happy Thursday, Kathy.

Is it possible that that frog actually looks like he is smiling? I swear, I thought he was fake at first because he just looks happy. Maybe he's ready for spring too! :)

Your spring fluffing looks great! And the redbuds are beautiful! I love that you took a photo of the frog - he does look like he's smiling. ;)

Bonita said...

Such pretty decorations inside and out. Even the frog looks like he's smiling. I especially like the Johnson Bros. plate.
