Howdy!  I hope your day is going great today!  I am so happy walking into my dining room right now and wanted to share the reason: SPRING has arrived!  Well... at least in our decor.

I don't really have a mantel in the traditional sense, but I like to think of my hutch as my place to get my mantel on.  This season, it has a little something extra special on it.  
In January, we lost my Nana.  (Mom, stop reading and just look at the pretty pictures)  I can't say enough about my she"nana"gans. She was so fun and devious - thus the nickname.  She even owned and ran a fabric shop back in the day, and loved to be crafty.

So, I was honored that my family allowed me to have all of her "milk glass."  I am a tad obsessed with dishes.  The combination of my Great-Grandma's blue mason jars and my Nana's milk glass makes me feel surrounded by generations of love.  I know, cheesy.  This was my inspiration for spring.
The one fun thing I added in to add to the simplicity was to water color my own paper to make the butterflies.  
I also made coffee paper flowers and tinted them with food coloring.  
I just love the combination of the aqua and orange.  It is light and fresh.  Plus, adding in some green moss kept the natural texture of spring.  

My absolute favorite piece of glass from Nana is this blue pedestal.  OH. my. goodness.  How a-mazing, right?!!? Can you see the tulips on the sides?? 
This is my centerpiece on our table.  I didn't do an entire tablescape as I was just too excited to use the milk glass - I didn't even break out my spring dishes yet!  
Wow. Simple. Aqua. Orange. HAPPY girl.  That Nana would be proud, and using my middle name to show her amusement at me calling her She'nana'gins! The temperatures this weekend just added to the spring fever I've got going on!!
Everything looks so delicate and well, for lack of a better word at the moment, SPRINGY!  The temperatures this weekend just added to the spring fever I've got going on!! 

Have you decorated for spring yet?  Getting ready for a little E.B. (BOK BOK)?  Thanks for visiting!  I'm so glad you are here.  Please feel free to share a little comment love or pin the images.  Hugs!!

I stopped by from the Dog Days party and fell in love with your milk glass. You did such a cute job of decorating with it. I pinned your mason jars with butterflies too. You have some great ideas!
