It was time to give the top of our little recycling center a little pizzazzzzz...
...for the spring.
It's a nice change from winter's white-on-white cat and battenburg lace runner.
The white cat hasn't gone far though. He now sits on the floor next to the recycling center.
I love the cover of this old 1913 Bobbsey Twins book. When I was a young, I could always count on a new BT book being under the tree each Christmas.
Although this one is titled The Bobbsey Twins at Snow Lodge, the illustration on the front cover is very spring-like.
I also added a few bells from my small collection. My favorite is the Carmel Junipero Serra Mission bell with the cross handle.
Once upon a time, little vases filled with creamy white buttons sat on the recycling center. That was BB (before Baby). I shudder to think of the mess she could make with hundreds upon hundreds of buttons scattered all over the floor...
I hope you are all enjoying Spring wherever you are. I'm loving the warmer temperatures we've been having! (Although this evening's weather forecast just predicted FROST for overnight and cold temperatures tomorrow... hardly spring-like, but at least it's not snow!!)
I'm linking to Show & Tell Friday at Cindy's My Romantic Home. Cindy posted a touching tribute to her mom this week, so be sure to stop by and visit her and all the other bloggers sharing something this week.
