Is It Possible?

Could it be possible that Spring is actually here? Shhhh....don't say it too loudly! I don't want to jinx anything. We had some sunny and mild temperatures the past few days and color is popping up all over. I spied these yellow crocus on the side of a small hill on my property. There are snow drops and blue scillia too. The tulips and daffodils are going to be blooming next!

 I got so excited that I picked up some pansies at the garden center to plant by my front door. 
Next I put together a new springtime decoration on my front door. 
I picked up the umbrella and flowers on sale last week at Hobby Lobby.
I've had this shabby chic bird cage for many years and have used it in various ways throughout the house. I've put candles in it and at Christmastime I set up a Nativity Scene inside of it. After years of searching, I finally was able to track down a bird cage stand for it last month so I could hang it by the window.
 I love how there are little birds on the base.

Initially I had a white bird inside the cage, but it didn't show up very well. So I switched it out for the blue ceramic bird that I got at Michael's on sale for $1.20!

I added a burlap runner down the center of my dining room table and flanked an old wooden box with a pair of vintage enamelware candle holders. I put an Angel Vine plant in the box and added an old 1955 toy Chevy pickup truck (complete with a beagle in the truck bed) just for fun.
Have you been decorating for spring yet? What kind of flowers are blooming in your garden?

I think maybe Spring is finally here. Your flowers look so pretty and I love the umbrella on the door. The wreath I have is so tired looking...your door is a happy surprise.
I noticed that you're doing great on WW-hooray for you!
Have a good rest of the week.
