Show Off Your Cottage Monday

Welcome to "SHOW OFF YOUR COTTAGE MONDAY", a blog party I host at the beginning of each week to celebrate the things we love about our homes and how we live.
The House in the Roses
I’m ready for spring.... are you not? Well, spring is usually a little slow in coming here. Our mountains are still encased in snow, and it looks as if all the crazy winds of the world have decided to make our valley their home.... swish swoosh they sing and dance and destroy things too! ;) So while my unfaltering daffodils, sweet woodruff, spirea and every other bulb and shrubs in the garden spring into action, I’m turning my attention to sweeter things... like decorating my home. Do you remember my new chair here?
Well, she is now sitting pretty by my window all dressed up in Valspar Antique White! Doesn’t she look lovely! Oh oh and welcome to my "early signs of spring"—my new flowery tablecloth! I love the colors and flowers on this tablecloth... it reminds me of the first little flowerings of spring. I just had to show it to ye all! ;)
What are you celebrating today? Please take us to your cottage and share your blessings... You’re welcome to link, but please make sure you link back to the house in the roses!

  2. Cielo- I love the chair painted white. I think it makes all the details show up so much better...don't you? Wonderful old pressed back that it is..and I love your white afghans piled on it. I am so anxious for Spring and we are traveling South this week. Today I saw the first buds on some the thees and the willows are all quickening. Love it! Happy Sunday/Monday to you! xxoo Diana

  9. Hi Cielo,
    Your home looks lovely all decked out for spring! I love your chair -I just got a very similar one but the bottom was replaced so it will be an outdoor chair.
    It is cold here too-hope it warms up soon for both of us.
    Thank you for hosting,
    Carolyn

  12. I'm definitely ready for Spring, but Spring isn't ready to come here yet. It was below 20 degrees this morning! Brrr!
    I love the chair painted white and it looks great in it's new spot with the darling table cloth next to it.
    I've linked up with you today. Always look forward to Mondays with you!

  17. Hello Cielo,
    Your chair looks quite lovely - the details in the back come out beautifully! I am so glad spring is coming your way - this has been an incredible winter for so many!
    By the time your garden becomes a beautiful haven mine may be experiencing heat and humidity - we all have our moments of delight and our moments of not so lovely!
    Thank you for hosting this lovely party!
