Waiting for Spring

Waiting for Spring - cute little  birds with beach glass

Is it me or does this Winter just seem to go on and on and on?
I know that after last week 
and the ice storm of the decade
I am more than enough ready for Spring to be here.

Having this in the South is not cool.
It is quite pretty to look at but we handle 
hurricanes better than this ice.
Anyway, I am ready for Spring.
I was at Cracker Barrel the other day and came upon the 
cutest little birds I have ever seen.

Of course, I had to have some.
They were only $.99 each and are actually salt shakers.
I picked up three to put in a little vignette.

Just a small white dish filled with some sea glass
with the birds sitting around it.

A painted blue mason jar filled with some statis 
we have a vignette that speaks Spring to me.
Makes me smile and know that it is getting closer everyday.

Loving these little guys 
at the price may have to go back and pick up a few more.
You can never have too many birds......

  1. We never got winter and my garden is already looking like spring. Right now my preparation for our real spring is to find drought tolerant bushes that flower. And, we are looking how to build a rain barrel to gather the little rain we do get so we can water our garden during this drought.

  2. Oh I am PRAYING for spring to hurry and get here!!
    I love those birds and photos you took look amazing!!!
    Here's to wishing for spring!!

  3. Wishing for spring to hurry up and arrive...it has a been a long winter this year! And I am so ready for springtime:) the little bird shakers are absolutely adorable and I can't believe you paid only 99 cent for it.....I adore them! Pretty color of the mason jar.....loving your spring vignette! Hugs, Poppy

  10. I can't believe those were only 99 cents each! Great find.


  11. I am so ready for Spring. I'm decorating with my egg cup collection and some green glass. Soon I'll bring out the birds! Love your vignette...anything with birds and sea glass is perfect to me!!

  12. Lovely post, I love the little birds from Cracker Barrel. I would run out to get some if we had a Cracker Barrel around here. I added you to my Google circles and joined as a member today. I am looking forward to seeing more of your posts. Thrifty finds are so much fun!!


  13. Those are super cute! I love seeing all your great finds, makes me want to go hunting for some for myself. Thanks for sharing on Snickerdoodle Sunday.

  14. We northerners are pretty tired of winter too. Waiting breathlessly for spring to arrive! http://www.nancherrow.com/2014/02/welcome-fridays-unfolded-99.html

  15. Very sweet little birds...I'm a little tired of winter here in the South as well.

  16. Oh Goddess, so ready for spring! This winter has been horrid, and I live in SE Wisconsin and am used to cold, hard winters. But this one is the worst in 30 years, so they are saying in weather forecasts on t.v. Nasty. Ground is deep frozen down 6 feet -- will take a month of warm sunny days to thaw it out but warm and sunny are mutually exclusive around here this season. We are 30 degrees below normal temperature, but also below normal snow. What we have though, hasn't left since November, it's frozen into ice! Your birds are soooo cute, and what a great price for them, wow! The dish you put them in reminds me of water in the summer and birds splashing in a bath, just lovely. I often buy cute little salt/pepper shakers as knick-knacks to display because they are inexpensive (from the Family Dollar) and come seasonally, so I have winter and autumn, and will be on the look-out for spring-themed items soon. Nothing much yet at the Family Dollar, but merchandise changes regularly so I will keep an eye out. I haven't felt like decorating for spring at all, I've still got my winter vignettes around the house and deer in snow (my theme for this season) framed all over, LOL! Can't think about spring when I see unending icy snow out of my windows and the squirrels still have their winter fur on! Visiting today from Cozy Little House Tweak it Tuesday.

  17. What pretty decorations. I am so ready for spring too--but tomorrow is still going to be below 0! Crazy! Thanks for linking up with the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Party. I have pinned your post to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Board!

  18. Cathy - this has been a long, hard spring - your display is just too sweet! Soon spring will truly be here! I appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,

  19. Those birds are so cute! Thank you for sharing on Thank Goodness It's Thursday. I can't wait to see what you link up next time :)
