Wildcard Wednesday: Signs of Spring.......Here & There

What's Spring without fresh flowers? 

Since our weather around here can't seem to make up it's mind, we don't have many blooms yet.  So last weekend, when I was doing some grocery shopping (for my "Picnic on the Greens"), I just couldn't resisted picking up a few flowers.

Recently I've been collecting various styles of antiqued silver bud vases, & I couldn't wait to see how they looked with the flowers.

I planned to scatter them throughout the house, but they made such a statement grouped together that I just had to take a few snapshots first!

I sat them atop a mirrored charger to add to the drama.

{This a pic of their reflection!}

Don't you think they would be adorable sitting at each place setting of a tablescape?

The remaining flowers were gathered in this antiqued silver pitcher from Pottery Barn.

And I even saved a flower for this little bird.

Now that my "photo shoot" is over, the flowers are happily scattered throughout the house.....the pitcher rests nearby my kitchen sink, while the little vases sit HERE & THERE.........on an end table, on the bathroom vanity, on my nightstand......and if you remember, one even showed up in last week's Chicken Cordon Bleu post. 

But no matter where they are, they add a little brightness & Spring cheer!

I'll be linking to How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday, Rose Vignettes for Fresh Cut Friday,  Show & Tell Friday at Romantic Home, & The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays.
