Every season has its song.  In fall, it is the skitter
of leaves across the walk; in winter, it is the hush
of fresh fallen snow; in the summer it is the roar
of waves, but it is Spring's song that makes spirits
soar.  For in spring, the songbirds fly home~
Swallows, Warbles and Orioles...

Spring's song is alive and chirping,
thus the music of the garden has

This lovely bird house I bought it at
Christmas Tree Shops, and the bird
came from Michael's.

The heart shape pillow I bought it at
Penny Lane Consignment store, when I was
living on Cape Cod, MA.   The beautiful flowers 
came from Home Goods.

These doors were built by the
love of my life, my husband.

I adore Bunnies!

This cute bunny came from

A little bit of history...
Christmas Tree Shops was founded on
Cape Cod in 1970, and in 2003 was

I lived on the Cape for 17 years and
CTS has 6 store there, so I own a
lot of precious items from them.

Sagamore Store

A lovely collage for you!

These are the things that I love and am
 inspired by.  I hope you will be
inspired too.

  19. What a lovely room! You have such a pretty place to have tea. Your rose tea cup is unique and romantic. I love the shape!

  20. Lovely! The bird tucked in the flowers is especially sweet.

  21. Hi Wendy, thank you for your recent visit to my blog and for following along with me. I am now YOUR newest follower.

    Sadly, I can't see a single one of your photos. My internet filter (Integrity Online), which we have to keep trashy stuff out, is blocking all photos uploaded through blogger. Your blog background is beautiful, though, and I can imagine that your photos are equally lovely.

    By the way, I don't blog a whole lot at Fill My Cup with Beauty right now. I spend more time at my classic movie blog, so if you are interested in those, please feel free to pop by that blog.


  22. Forgot to say thank you for your kind words about my blog header. Edie of Rich Gifts and Blog Design custom-made it for me. I agree, she did a beautiful job.

  23. Thank you so much for your visit today Wendy and for your sweet comment. Your blog is lovely and your bunnies are precious! The doors your hubby made are gorgeous...lucky you! I really enjoyed my visit here today. Thank you!

  24. What a fabulously delightful and soft tea vignette that you have to share with us today!

    Lovely as always!

    Cheers and hugs from Wanda Lee

    Hello! I love this tea post!!
    Your screen and the doors that your hubby made are to die for!!

I also have the same bird from Micheal's that a friend bought for me and i have a Christmas Tree Shop about 10 minutes from me and it is my favorite place to shop!!
