I love this time of year. There’s so much promise in the air – the promise of warmer weather, new beginnings and fresh starts. Hooray!
My signs of spring may not be your usual – although I DO have daffodils! – but these are the things occupying my home and bringing a smile to my face as spring starts to take flight.
The vintage silk scarves I picked up at a fair yesterday. It was held in aid of St Gemma’s Hospice – a charity local to me and one I support regularly. Throughout the year, every branch of St Gemma’s collects vintage donations and sells them at slightly higher prices at this special event. My eyes were like saucers as I took in 1960s dresses, 50s furniture and 80s accessories. I just missed out on a dressmakers dummy but did manage to scoop these three delicious silk scarves. Yummy, no?
The rose print teacup was another second hand steal. Just £3.49 for a 6 piece set, it sits next to its Royal Stafford friend on my dressing table. I think I’m becoming slightly obsessed with vintage china… while my wardrobe shrinks, my crockery cabinet grows! Oops. I’m sure that’s really not the point. Never mind.
Are there any signs of spring in your home? Share them please – I’d love to know!
