Tablescape Tuesday - I'm ready for Spring! Now!

It's Tablescape Tuesday again. Time flies doesn't it? After reading my post, head over to see Susan at Between Naps on the Front Porch. You'll find many more who have joined in the fun. If you haven't yet, join us next week!

I'm ready for Spring. I've had enough of Winter, dreary weather and being indoors. I want green grass, daylilies, agapanthus, azaleas and all the beautiful signs of Spring.

I went back through previous pictures and found my Spring 2007 table. We'll call this a Preview of Things to come.

We'll start from the bottom up. The placemats are from Dillard's and were 60% off. I also purchased the matching striped napkins. Same pattern is on the back of the placemat.

The dinner plate is by Noritake in the pattern Reverie. I've had it at least 30 years and still enjoy it. The bunny plates were 50% off at Hobby Lobby. Their sales are so frequent, I try to never buy anything there unless it is on sale!

The green glass is my Fruits Depression glass which I have featured before.

The tall glass vases are so versatile. I use them every season and change the flowers. I love the slender light plus the height they give to the table.

The cute little bunnies were also bought from Hobby Lobby but many years ago. They are so adorable and have cute little pink flowers painted on them. I love getting them out of storage each year.

Is it time yet?

Judy..this was such a pretty tablescape and really put me in the mood for Easter & spring. I also appreciate the tips on buying on sale because obviously you have been making a killing. Also love how you mix old & new. Very pretty!! :-)

Great idea for the vase, you can see the faces across the table!!

Such a lovely tablescape. Our snowstorm started over night and is continuing all day today. Schools are closed. We already have piles of it and this will just be more more more. To see your lovely hint of spring is so refreshing. It also helps me get an idea of things to 'gather' for the upcoming season. Thanks.

Hello Judy Bug, your spring tablescape is delightful, I love your dishes and vases and of course the bunnies, perfect, Kathy

Lovely spring the bunny china! :-) You are ready for spring and Easter!
I was wondering what china pattern that is in your header. The edges look a lot like Spode Tower so I'm guessing it's a Spode pattern. I love pretty! Susan
