Springifying~Mosaic Monday

Our local weatherman informed us that March 1 signaled the beginning of "meteorological" spring. I'm taking him at his word no matter what it's doing outside.


Do you suppose that it means anything if I am still happy to use Photoscape for my mosaics? I think it does, but we won't delve into that today. I just had to spring up the top of the china cabinet this weekend. A little cheer never hurts. I used as much shiny stuff as I could find and though the daffodils dried up I decided to use them anyway — they're still yellow!


Perhaps a less busy mosaic is better. I couldn't decide so you see both. Thanks for visiting and please join our hostess Mary at Little Red House to see what she and all the others have been doing.

Seems as if there's an impromptu party planned at my haven today and I'm hosting. I promise to catch up!

Blessings this week...

Love Vee

  4. I see little green shoots coming out of the ground here...I think they are Narcissus, the smaller type of daffodil. I won't know until they actually blossom. In the meanwhile we had snow flurries overnight.

  7. In my neck of the woods, we are snow-covered, and a Cosmic Baker is still "sifting Powdered Sugar" down. Oh and the sun keeps trying to peek out. If I consider this weather for too long, I may get "discombobulated". So I will not consider. ,-)

    Since I love the photo of the more clear swan head, I guess I like the less busy mosaic, since "it" shows the pretty swan head, in a larger way.

    Have fun, at your Impromptu Gathering!!!!!!

    Here, I am trying to get a new Blog Look. Trrrrrrrying. *&%^&%#$^**& And I'm now just-about-"tried"-out! -grin-

  15. Now I have a good excuse to change the items on the buffet to something more Spring-like. I forgot March 1st is the beginning of meterological Spring!

    I've just had to put word verification on my comments. I hate to do it as I have trouble sorting it out on other blogs even with my glasses on. I've always had spam but a couple months ago I started getting hit with hundreds (and hundreds) of hits each week. Blogger used to be able to catch most of them but now I have dozens each day that I have to sort through to find the real comments.

    Wanted to warn you as I know you dislike word verification as much as I do.

  16. Happy Sunday, Vee! Oh yes! I'm lovin' your "springing up" your cabinet there. I'm so ready for spring!!! and springing up! Sometimes, it's just a frame of mind. Our week here is looking like spring (after a coupla cold ones) and I think I can safely plant the rest of my garden another week or two. YEA!

    Have a fun immpromptu party!

  23. Look at all of your pretty Spring colors and I love your pretty banner. I wonder if I could make one. It would be a nice start to my decorating. I think I'll bring out some Spring things tomorrow! Happy Monday! (I hope you had a nice day and a fun party!)

  26. Beautiful spring mosaic, Vee. I can't wait to see some spring flowers here and in order to do so, I think I'll have to go buy them. We still have much snow covering the landscape. Have a happy Monday!

  27. Everything looks beautiful Vee, but I am loving your bunting. A am a bunting-aholic, you know. Your Spring is so lovely and your mosaics are too.

  28. Ooooo...your mosaic is sooooo bright and cheerful! I am a big fan of the "meteorological" seasons. I am always eager for the next season to begin, summer being the notable exception. I think spring begins on March 1. (It didn't feel very spring-y here today...cloudy skies and a cold wind blew all day.)

    Love your banner!

  30. March is the Southwest's favorite month. It's been a bit too cold, but the citrus blossoms should be shouting out their wonderful scent soon. I can wake up to that smell for a couple of weeks.

  31. I like your mosaic with the rounded corners but they both look nice and springy. Have a lovely Monday Vee.

  32. Everything looks so beautiful and yes, very spring-like in your house...even if the weathermen are predicting snow here this week. Thank you for your comments on my blog!

  33. Your mosaic decor and photography certainly bring Spring to me ~ very creative! ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  34. I think they are both wonderful, and that's because the individual little spring inspirations in them are so cheerful. I am so anxious to get this mess cleared up and decorate for spring before it's summer.

  35. I like both mosaics. The second one brings us in for a closer view. I am sure your cabinet top decorating has brightened up your day.
    We here are now into autumn, although it has still be hot, the slightly cooler morning promises that cooler weather is on the way.
    Have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by my blog today.

  36. Good morning, Vee,
    Your mosaics are delightful. I like your swag. Add decorative touches is sure to bring sunshine into your day. As I look out the window this morning I am seeing deep frost on the rooftops. Spring seems far away at the moment. It won't be long, though, until the daffodils will peek through the softened soil.
    Have a great day and thanks so much for your kind comment.
    Blessings,
    Carolynn
    ps....I read your profile and can see you and I have similar taste in movies...I absolutely love "A Christmas Story".

  40. Very pretty touches of spring! With the longer days, everything is looking brighter and your decor matches perfectly.
    Hope the impromptu gathering was a lot of fun!

  41. We have lurched into Spring here too. I can't wait to get a little warmth into the old bones, and to be able to go and plant Stuff. And tomorrow may well be 15C so I live in hope!

  42. Your mosaic is beautiful - both of them. You've created spring inside and I hope it's beginning to look that way outdoors, too.

    Yellow and blue are so pretty together. I'm always reminded of French Country decorating and how those colors seem to bring (me) a feeling of cheerfulness.

  43. Love your nice springy mosaic - both of them.

  44. Hi Vee!

    Love the mosaic! I love Daffodils - wilted or not, they just say, "Spring"!! I think we all need a break from Old Man Winter, and your blog was just what I needed today! Love the colors, and all the shiny glass!

    Hugs,
    Barb

  45. Hey I am with you on wanting spring to rush in, I even have some wilted daffodils hanging around my house too ;c)

    My favorite photo is the one of the blue glass bottle with sprigs of greenery and the glass swan's head, beautiful.

    Hope your party was a success!

  46. Vee, I love both! Your dried up Daffodils made me smile. I would have thrown them out and you know what? They worked. Love your sweet banner. Felt like Spring here (finally) today. I even worked out in the garden a bit.
    hugs,

  47. Good Morning Sweet Friend

    I've never used Photoscape. Is it easier than Picmonkey? I loved the addition of the spring banner. I think that I liked the busier mosiac - more details fr me to examine:)

    Enjoy your week!

    1. Much easier for me because everything I need is already on my computer without going to a third site. Picmonkey has been becoming more pic-ky so it doesn't have anything to offer over Photoscape. It used to, though.

  50. Love your bunting Vee - it really 'Springifies' your room beautifully!
    It won't be long now and your snow will be gone and replace by lovely Spring flowers!
