Our sofa has spring fever...

.. just like me!


Yes, it is definitely time for a burst of springtime color in our little cottage! My poor old slipcovers have seen better days (pulled and pilled by little kitty claws), therefore I like to conceal the damage under quilts!


So off came the old quilt used this past winter (a more subdued floral that looked great during the winter moths)...



... and out came the thrift store baby quilt I scored several years ago, because I am ready for some serious springtime color!


Bright blooms dot the pink and white striped background, and the border has a sweet sunny yellow striped ruffle...


...while the reverse side sports a soft green & white pattern pattern.


Now I should have stopped there with the flowers, but I couldn't. So my Rachel Ashwell hydrangea pillow sits in one corner of the sofa...


...and a pair of robins egg floral pillows sit on the opposite side. Yup, we are officially ready and waiting for spring, and flowers, and WARM weather, to finally make an appearance in our neck of the woods! And after three long months, the bare ground is finally visible beneath the melting snow! I think that's reason enough for a major celebration and explosion of flowers!
Hope you are all having a lovely week!
Donna

That looks so pretty! VERY SPRINGY!!!! And of course, the cat MUST be in the picture. Does she come running when she hears the camera click. My dog Carson does.....LOL. However, he doesn't want to pose, he always is curious about the camera so half the pictures are have a dog nose in them. Happy Spring!
