Is it spring yet............

There seems to be a general theme to my posts these days as I am craving to get out into the garden.  I did notice yesterday that some bulbs are starting to poke their little heads through the somewhat still frozen ground.

In spite of its tardy arrival I am still doing some indoor gardening.  I have a new project on the go, growing herbs and a variety of sprouts.  If all goes well I  hope to sell some in the spring.  I will keep you posted on my progress.

I also made a trip to Oakville the other day to visit the store that Chrissy's husband sells his furniture from.   While there, I picked up a few treasures to brighten up an otherwise gloomy day.


Just love these little chalkboard signs, may have to go back and get more!


and these little burlap sacks.......cute as a button!


these are supposed to be cloth cocktail napkins, but I can assure, no one will be wiping their mouths with them.  I have a few other ideas for them instead.


and finally this vintage inspired bottle opener, the perfect addition to my country kitchen


Day one of my sprout growing, check back in a few days as they should be looking much different.

Have a good weekend everyone!

I am SO looking forward to spring like everyone else! It looks like you brought a little spring home with you from Chrissy's husbands shop! Love the look of burlap around the herbs. And I can't wait to see what you do with the napkins!

Good luck with the sprouts!!

XO,

such great finds. I love the shop you are speaking of ~ gorgeous!
How great that you are growing your own sprouts...we love them in sandwiches, but I've never grown them myself. I'm sure they will taste even more delicious :-)
