Winter blues

I cannot tell you how tired I am of the snow and cold.  To top it off, we have ice moving in tonight.  I am tempted to do some tanning bed light therapy.  Okay, not really, but I could use about 5 full days of sunshine.  In all of my dreaming of spring, I decided to introduce a little bit of living flowers in my decor.

My flowers of choice are paperwhites just for the fact that they are white.  I pulled out a couple of different things to plant the bulbs in.

It has only taken about 2 weeks to grow.  I am thoroughly enjoying seeing them grow.  It makes me really want spring to hurry up and get here!

I am especially enjoying them on top of my jelly cabinet.  I had to rig up the wooden box thing with plastic lunch bags to plant the bulbs in there.   I'm lovin' it!  Seeing the green stems with the blooms just starting to poke out has me dreaming of warmer days ahead!

Going to show some spring love at:
