Since I had seen a few daffodils, I decided they would be okay. (I'm wondering now what has become of the drifts of daffodils I saw Monday. They have been thoroughly snowed on!) So for the dining table centerpiece, I simply swapped out my sugaring scene cake dome for a pitcher of silk daffodils. Kept the little brown birds. I like them.
On the hutch, I thought the simplicity of the jadeite and milk glass together was quite pretty. I've had the sugar and creamer for eons, since the 1970s, I think. Just located the jadeite plates in a box of old dishes rescued from our family's little vacation place. (Sometime I need to blog about this cottage in the woods. It was not my idea of a vacation -- no plumbing, no running water, although there was electricity and a phone and even a TV set that may have gotten one channel. Now I look back on it with nostalgia, although I still wish it had had plumbing.)
Don't remember where I acquired the little oval platter in the center, but it looked springlike to me. All of the little birds (intended to be salt & pepper shakers) were gifted me by my friend Lynne. Next shelf down holds some pretty teas for one, plus an antique card and a quote from the poem "The First Spring Day."
Hope you have enjoyed this look at the simplest spring decorating!
