DECORATING FOR SPRING

As the sweet little blue bird gathers roses to adorn her nest, she dreams of her young yet to be born. Busily she fluffs and fills their home with just the right materials to provide comfort and security for her little family.

Home Sweet Home, filled with the beauty of nature and accented with roses trailing along the twigs and branches.


Hand painted on two small porcelain lace edge hearts and ready to hang in a sweet display.

Looking forward to spring has me painting new designs and happy to be in the studio each day. This design and more will be offered in my etsy boutique.
I know it is cold for many and still winter, but like the sweet little bird, we can dream of warmer days ahead and begin to adorn our nest.
See you again soon. Blessings and Blue Skies be yours, Celestina Marie

They are so beautiful and delicate. We have Eastern bluebirds in our feeders every day now. We counted 7 at one time this morning...along with goldfinches, purple finches, juncos, and more! We always get excited when we see the bluebirds! I think everyone is ready for Spring!

That's so funny seeing you posting tonight, honey. I was just making Love Bunny a template and using yours as a starter for him....showing him how it works. LOL LOL.... and he says to me, "but I don't want all those flowers on it." I cracked up and told him it won't be like yours all froufrou-y......too funny.

Hi Celestina :)

Those little hearts are darling! You have a beautiful gift that I really admire.

If it isn't going to snow again, I wish spring would hurry and get here. I want to play in my flower garden :)

Hi Celestina,
Your little plates are adorable. I'm decorating for Spring, too. I was glad to put the snowmen away.
Haven't done my usual blogging with projects, and hubby having to go back to hospital for some testing. All seems to be well.
Ceekay got some bad news this week too. She has a good attitude, though.
Hope all has been going well for you and I always enjoy my visits.

Gosh those dishes are pretty, love the blue birdie the best.

Hi Celeste, What beautiful birds and nest you've painted here. Make a person wish for spring even more. Congrats on you makeover from Jan and Tom. Your header is adorable and so is the rest of your blog. Your blue that you've added to your kitchen is stunning! Love it. Stop by and visit me when you have time. I'm having a giveaway.
Bless you, Shirl
