Guess Who's Coming To Dinner?


 Sorry, that really wasn't fair, no one is coming to dinner, other than us...but I did do a tablescape!




 Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush.  ~  Doug Larson




Springtime is the land awakening. The March winds are the morning yawn. ~  Quoted by Lewis Grizzard in Kathy Sue Loudermilk, I Love You




Spring makes its own statement, so loud and clear that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments, not the composer.   ~ Geoffrey B. Charlesworth




 Spring is nature's way of saying, Let's party!   ~ Robin Williams




It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.   ~ Charles Dickens




An optimist is the human personification of spring.  ~ Susan J. Bissonette




Can words describe the fragrance of the very breath of spring?  ~ Neltje Blanchan


 


Sweet springtime is my time is your time is our time for springtime is love time and viva sweet love.  ~ e.e. cummings




 If I had my life to live over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall. ~ Nadine Stair


 


Spring An experience in immortality.  ~ Henry David Thoreau




Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart. ~ Victor Hugo





It's time for Tablescape Thursday again over on Between Naps on the Porch.

  2. What beautiful china. And I do love your silver candlesticks. I still can't find mine since we moved here in Oct. 2008. They are in a box in the garage somewhere . . .
    And that planter is scrumptious.
