Spring is Blooming

The crocus are up, hyacinths are just beginning to open and daffodils are starting their birth.  I love spring with all of the promise of what is to come.  I hope you all had a wonderful Easter and Passover.  We were invited to our first Seder dinner this weekend.  It was a memorable evening.  We celebrate Eastern Orthodox Easter on Sunday April 12th.

This Saturday is Gardenfest at Mchenry County College in Crystal Lake.  My presentation is ready.  I am so excited to share my love of creating gardens with flea market finds.

I have been so busy with finishing up little projects, searching for treasures to bring to Carriage House Antiques and anything else that comes up.  I had this wonderful night stand that was sponge painted a pink/grey color.  I painted it white this weekend and added a glass nob for a more vintage look.  I love how it came out.

The Mchenry Garden Club is having a Container Garden Show on April 28th at Mchenry West High School in Mchenry.  Carriage House Antiques donated a wonderful basket filled with garden related items for the raffle.

Once again, I rearranged my space at the store.  It looks so light and bright.  I love moving things around so that everything looks so new.  I brought in this wonderful bird cage with white chipped/rusty patina.  It looks so awesome hanging from the ceiling.

Next week I'm going to start planting lettuce/spinach/swiss chard.  I can't wait to taste the freshness!

Happy treasure hunting.
