The sun is shining ~!

Happy Saturday ~!  The sun is shining and it feels like spring here in Ontario.  This makes me smile ;-)

I've been puttering with my mantel, trying to bring a little Spring into the Vintage Cottage ~

I decided my little fairy needed to come out and play ~

Love this little bird ~

I know I need to put these away, but I just can't yet.  The mercury glass is just so pretty ~

How are you bringing Spring into the house?  I think I'll just feather my nest today ~ sounds like fun to me ;-)




  1. Morning.....lucky you, no Spring sunshine here but it is mild.......enjoyed your home pictures....Francine.

  2. Your spring mantel looks very pretty. It is so nice to get out the spring decor isn't it? I'm all ready for spring and Easter too. Enjoy the weekend. Pamela

  3. I hope you are having fun! Your mantel is looking really pretty. The sun is shining here, too, I have made a few changes, not many. It is still definitely winter here in Manitoba still!

  4. How pretty it all looks. I left some mercury glass out, too. I just put next to a few spring things and think it looks great. Enjoy the sunshine.

  5. Not a glimpse of sun for us today. It is gray and drab.

  6. Gorgeous down here today! Hope you're feeling better. Spring is on its way!

  7. Very pretty ! Yes it was a lovely spring like day here to and tomorrow is to be a bit nicer temp wise ! Miggs is the one that brings spring in lol her muddy feet lol ! Have a good evening !

  8. I have the same fairy! She is a bit larger and I call her "mary fairy".
    THe sun was out here today. Love your yard long rose picture.

  9. So pretty!!! I love the shabby spring look! And it was lovely today indeed!


  10. Such a lovely Spring mantel! I do love that print, too. Roses are always my favorite--especially pink ones. I'm your newest follower!

  11. Your mantle looks great. Fresh and springy. I finally pulled out my spring stuff and started decorating. Feels good.

  12. Your little fairy is so sweet and you always know just how to put things together...the pearls and birds all look so cute. Don't put the Mercury glass away! It's TOO pretty! Feels like Spring here but I haven't done any decorating yet!

  13. Your mantel looks so fresh and ready for spring. I'd want to keep the beautiful mercury glass out all year long. We've had some really nice spring weather for days.

  14. Saturday was such a warm and springlike day, but it has cooled off again for the foreseeable future. Spring is being very fickle. Love all of the spring touches you have added.

  15. Hi Mairanne,

    I can't wait until Spring is here, so tired of the gloom of winter. Lovely pics, especially the rose picture.
    Have fun feathering your nest.
