Green Dreams

"Is the spring coming?" he said. "What is it like?"...
"It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling
on the sunshine..."
           ~Frances Hodgson Burnett
                  The Secret Garden

    I can't stop dreaming about green. Green grass, flowers, sunshine... and yet it keeps SNOWING!! I am told that March is a snowy month but I can't believe that mother nature intended it to be so. We are supposed to be coming up on the first day of spring and I am more than ready for it. To keep my spirits up while I wait (impatiently) for spring to unfurl her colors I have taken some green photos. These are a few treasures in my home that were obviously made by artists who share my love for springtime. Let's hope that we don't have to wait too much longer...


  1. Oh- I am just smitten- It is so very, very beautiful! Your photos are just gorgeous-xo Diana

  2. Jennelise ~ gorgeous post! I love all of your beautiful china pieces. They are just glorious! I hope spring comes quickly where you are. It is finally warming up in Utah. It was 74 degrees the other day...but we might get snow on Thursday! Yikes! xo

  3. Hi Jennelise,
    Absolutely gorgeous! What beauty and romance! I love it all but I especially admire the chocolate pot and the chocolate cup/saucer. I did a post on my chocolate pots that you may want to take a look at. It's one of my February posts titled "Chocolate Pots and snowflakes". Have a great week and hang in there, Spring really will be here for us soon! Gina
