Hello Sunshine! Hello Spring!

Today was the day! There's always the day when you wake up and realize that spring is definitely going to happen in spite of the doubts you might have had yesterday.

Hello Sunshine! Hello Spring! Coffee table vignette at Poofing the Pillows.

Today was the day that the sun decided to shine in the windows after many long days of much needed rain. Today I see the sparkle!


Today my thoughts turn to potting soil and geraniums...pink toes and flip flops.


Today I think my heart is beating a little faster and I heard frogs in the distance when I went to the mailbox.


Thank goodness for today! Are you experiencing signs of spring where you are?

Your home is just so lovely. No signs of spring here. We won't see anything greening up until April sometime..and nothing will bloom until May usually. I do NOT like these long, cold winters!!!
I hope you have a great week- xo Diana

Stacey,
Yes, experiencing spring at my house. The daffodils are blooming, the redbud tree has buds, and the pear tree is spouting... AND the rye grass is green once again from all the rain.

Oh boy, I wish spring was showing its head here. I would be happy to see a hair on spring's head!! We can (and more often than not do) get snow into April. Mother's Day is the earliest recommended planting day here, but it's fun to dream and get lost in your beautiful spring view.

The colors in your home are so refreshing! And yes, it's very Spring like here...even with pollen! Enjoy your week! Hugs!

we might have snow flurries on friday, so it will be a while til we see Spring!

Tanya said...

We just had our flower beds mulched and lots of leaves cleaned out today. So it is starting to feel like spring, and I'm ready to put some new plants in! Beautiful photos!

I took my snowmen down today -- a sure sign that it will snow next week. But it's almost March 1 and time to look toward spring, even if it is a long while coming. Love your bunny pillow and the bright, springy look in your beautiful home. No planting for awhile, though in the thaw, the bulbs have started to peek up. But it will come!

A little sign of spring here but so, so much rain and dreary, cloudy days. Spring can't get here quick enough. Beautiful pics of your "springy" looking home.

Hi Stacey, spring is everywhere, a little early! We have had days of rain, but the sun is shining brightly this morning! I love the bunny pillow! Happy Tuesday!

Kathy Olson said...

I love those soft colors in your home. It's so peaceful:)

Junkchiccottage said...

Good Morning Stacey. Oh so jealous you are already getting Spring. We here in the midwest won't see Spring until April and even then we could get snow! Ugh!!! So I have the pink toes but no flip flops just yet. Love your bunny pillow so adorable. Enjoy that sunshine and warmth. Bask in it for me.
Hugs,
Kris

I'm so with you Stacey! I'm ready to start planning and planting! Plus my passion vine is going crazy on my back fence, my Chinese Pistachio tree has buds on it! Sure signs that spring is almost here! Love your rabbit pillow!

Molly said...

Yes, spring looks like it’s on the way in Memphis. Sunshine and temps in the 60s yesterday. I bought some pansies and snapdragons to replace those in my window box that the 2 events of ice and snow destroyed. It felt wonderful digging in the dirt. I know it seems silly to plant now, but it looks so good to have the flowers welcoming spring! Make my home look happy! Your home is very lovely!

We are embracing it all and every moment of it too. Yesterday afternoon was just glorious. All of these wonderful birds singing up a storm and my puppy is learning how to walk on a leash. Life is good.
Sounds like you are feeling much better! Yippee!

Your new forever home is so pretty...I love your colors and your photos are blowing me away.
Hints of spring here ...winds most every day and a little sand in the air. Our springs aren't as pretty as in other places but we have wonderful, hot summers.

I am drooling over your home. My house is so dark, and I've been going through it room by room year by year to lighten it up. I like the first picture because I see how you were able to work a dark grandfather clock into your room. I have one too and I don't want to get rid of it because of sentimental reasons, I see now how I can keep it by lightening everything else in the room up. As for spring, nope, no signs whatsoever yet! :( I live in Wisconsin and we just had another winter storm on Saturday and there are more to come this week.

Cindy Richter said...

I love your enthusiasm Stacey. I was the same way this weekend... then the Mister decides to burst my bubble and say - No, you can't go by flowers for the pots because you know we'll probably get another freeze in March like we usually do. :( Wow, what a way to cheer a girl up. Beautiful, well "finished" home. ;)

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

I love spring!!! We have to enjoy it too, because all to soon the heat of summer will be upon us.

Sandy said...

Lovely pictures. It is happening here as well. I am just loving watching all the greening up of everything. I am slowly adding some touches of spring in the house and the outside.

Andrea Nine said...

You are a breath of sweet Spring. Man, I love your front door. No signs of Spring here although today was 50 but back to cold and snow. Boo, so I’ll relish in these springy, pretty photos!

Maria Elena said...

What a pretty post! I can't wait for Spring. It has been a rough winter in Texas. :)

Dear Stacey ~ These glimpses into your lovely home are so inspiring and beautiful.

Here in s.e. FL there isn't much of a visible change in seasons. It would be nice if there were, but alas, we do have very mild winters. It is supposed to get down into the 50's at night over the weekend, so that will be wonderful. One last bit of winter type weather for us before summer's heat and humidity come. I worked outside for about three hours this morning and I kept smelling this sweet scent. It was a few blooms filling the air from the sweet almond bush.

On the first day of spring this year I will be 69 years young. Wow, where did the time go.

Enjoy your week and spring coming to your area.

We have had unseasonably warm weather lately and everything is blooming. Praying we don't get a late freeze. This year I truly welcome the early spring, it reminds me of the hope and renewal we are promised. I can't wait to dig in the dirt again.
You have created such a lovely home friend.

Suzanne said...

Oh so very, very pretty and airy and light. Just gorgeous.

Katie Mansfield said...

I love your spring touches. They look fabulous in your new home. Thank heavens for some sunshine.

Blondie's Journal said...

I love your aqua blues..now that's spring!

We had two warmish days--fifties and sixties. Now we have rain and snow on the way. We are always teased with nice weather like this, but we sure appreciate it!

Laura said...

What a beautiful, welcoming, and relaxing home:)
Yes, spring is almost here.
I can't wait.

I find it absolutely amazing what a day of sunshine can do to motivate and inspire, and I see it works for you, too, Stacey! It won't be long now until we'll be out there every day!

OH so pretty Stacey! Yes, things are blooming everywhere! I just drive around smiling at everything, Mother Nature seems to be having a lot of fun this year! Must get out my bunny pillow!

It's bee more like early summer with highs in the eighties, but the cool down is coming, unfortunately. I love how spring has sprung in your pretty home! LOVE the pillow!!!

You got to meet Bonnie! Isn't she the sweetest!

Linda @ Life and Linda said...

Your home looks so crisp and lovely. The bunny pillow is adorable. Spring is certainly welcome. Love seeing the flowers blooming and the birds singing.

Love that bunny pillow. My pear tree, peach trees and plumb trees has blooms. It is crazy weather though as we never know if it's going to cool, warm or in the middle. It seems we often experience one more frost before Easter so we shall see. Love your home Stacey. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

I'm excited to feel that kind of day here! Your home is so lovely dressed for spring, Stacey!

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

Your home always feels like a fresh breath of Spring Air! Your home says that a loving family lives here!

Jaybird said...

I do love your home....fresh, sprightly and sweet....just like it's owner!!
Be careful with the flowers though....thunder in February means frost in April!
Hugs to you and blessings,
J
