I love coming to your blog! I always find myself wanting to curl up with a cuppa tea and "visit" Your front door wreath is the cutest I have ever seen, and all of your spring decorating is truly beautiful.

Just a little something from Judy said...

What a privilege to visit your blog and see the beautiful way that you decorate for Spring. The pastels and the eggs look so nice, especially the creative way that you have them arranged. Makes me excited for Spring even though it is a gray, dismal day here today.

Sandra~Romantique Inspirations~ said...

Hi Maryjane, The paint color is so nice on your walls, maybe because I think I have the same color in my utility room. Anyways all the stuff on the mantle looks great, I'm crazy about the eggs. You definitely have the spring look going on-very nice!

Have a Wonderful Day-

Nancy said...

BEAUTIFUL Spring!!!!!!! Love it all!

fairmaiden said...

I am so glad I found you again! I had lost you in my 'cottage companions' last year when I accidently deleted them. I couldn't recall your blog name and therefore, it took this long to find you. Your blog has changed some since I was last here...your children are beautiful and your maltese~Samantha~ Oh my, when did you get her? She is only 4lbs!!! Ours is 8lbs. I wanted her to be 6lbs. but she kept growing. I love her to pieces. She is forever by my side.

We are going camping next week for spring holiday in our vintage cottage camper. So I'm busy packing her up! Can't wait. Blessings to you sweet Mary Jane. xo~fairmaiden
