EaRLy SPRINGTIME ViBe with ViNtaGe FiNds...

 Each ViNtaGe Piece in this March vignette has a "story-to-tell"...

Soooo Much More Interesting than brand new!*!*!
~* One-Of-A-Kind ViNtaGe Finds *~

I think of the Vintage Dealer I bought it from...
I remember the shop, show, or flea market...
I remember who I was with...
I remember details of trip/day...
On & On...

With Easter "being so-late" on the calendar this year,
 I wasn't quite ready to go full blown ViNtaGe Easter  - *just yet*
for my "Seasonal Display Area" in-our-home, here in Wisconsin
I asked myself, what's the first thing that excites me about Spring???
Beginning to PoP...
 Lots of WHITE mixed with GREEN, feels so uplifting -
fresh, clean, & bright!

Bring-On-the-GREEN ~*It's MARCH!*!*!

 ~* HeLLoooo MARCH *~
with a SpriNgTiMe ViBe!*!*!

Here in Wisconsin, we most likely won't SEE these Pansy & Viola Plants for a good 6-weeks or more!  HOWEVER, seeing these cheerful vibrant & alive plants do so improve my spirits!!!  I loved this little *FLoWeR Cart* that was show casing these plants.  I SOLD it a few years back at a Spring Show I was selling at.  It had just the right PaTiNa ~ "perfectly chippy white with hints of rust"...

Re-PuRpoSed "BiRdie Ephemera"
I tore these vintage bird pics from an old bird book & added some genuine tree branches to them.  I loved the SpringTime Vibe they added to the Flowers & Cart.  I kept a few birds  for myself to incorporate in my own Spring Vignettes in our home.  It was a great alternative to "seed packets" - which I'm not quite ready for - just yet!

~* FReSh & Bright *~
Does this say "Early March" -Or- What!?!?
Whites... & Greens...
Chalkware *FROG* is from my personal collection - BeSt!!!

ViNtaGe Crown-Top 1950's-60's Soda Bottle
with a St. Patrick's Day ViBe!!!  LoVe the little leprechaun image...  The ViNtaGe Iron Frog - just happened to "pop-in"...  The rusty, crusty bowl with wooden dividers is one of those "never to part with" - FaVoRiTEs in my personal collection.

~*Hoping to start putting some "show-dates"
 on the calendar come APRIL...
