Spring is here YEH & pink teacups

It has been such a cold Winter,the coldest in 10yrs
So I am so pleased to see Spring. Autumn and Spring are my favourite seasons

While on our daily walk in the gorgeous sunshine, we called in to the local second hand shop
I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw these teacups in pink depression glass
and then on another shelf , the matching candle holders which can be used upside down for a smaller candle. The lot $8. As you know I collect pink glass, so felt like it was my Birthday a few days early

Yes it nearly is my birthday and one of my presents is this little collection of bottles
Are they not so cute?

Annnnd these lovely gardening gloves
I love spots

Talking of Spring, Come with me to see the last of the Winter flowers
The Spring ones are peeping up just a little

The Azalea will flower right through Spring into Summer

I know my Northern blogger friends are welcoming the start of Autumn
Wherever you are,I hope you enjoy these lovely in between days.

Those pink dishes are so beautiful! I too love polka dotted things--like the gloves. I am drawn to polka dots--they are fun and happy. Your flower photos are beautiful!

Hi Jeanetteann,

Your garden is so pretty with the winter flowers giving way to the summer blooms on the way.

Happy Spring Jeanetteann! It is my favorite season. Autumn running a close second. How lucky to find the pink depression glass. I have only two cups and saucers, but I love them. Your flowers are so pretty. And that Azalea is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing with SYC. Happy Birthday if it has come and gone.

Oh, I am so glad you are starting spring! We are leaving summer, about to see autumn and then, oh dear oh dear, winter!

Thanks for your visits and comments on my blog, too, Jeanetteann. Love having you stop by. Susan

Your pink teacups are so darling! What a wonderful find! Happy birthday to you, also! Autumn is in the air around here. How I wish spring was near! We have very harsh winters where I live so I know what comes after autumn!

Happy Birthday, Jeanetteann! That's so fun that you found those pink cups just in time as a birthday gift to yourself. They are beautiful. Love that you get to enjoy azaleas. I tried them once down here but didn't have very good luck. Beautiful pictures!

Trish said...

Hi Jeanetteann,
you certainly got a lovely bargain with the pink depression glass!
Good on you, lol!
And happy birthday wishes for whenever your special day is :-)

Isn't it lovely to see our gardens coming to life with spring blossoms!?
Yours are more advanced than ours by the look of things.
We are still quite cold and had sago hail falling on and off all day today.
Have a great weekend!

Liz said...

Have a great weekend!
