Waiting for warm weather and green grass

We are still waiting for Spring to really come into full bloom around here. It seems as if Spring gets here later and later every year to the point where Spring never comes and Summer hits us in the face full blast! So while I wait for the nice weather and green grass to get here, I am looking at some of my pretties from last year that are outside.
This bird house with the door knob perch as well as this heavy ironstone candle stick is from Gatherings at the School. If you are ever in southwest Idaho when they are having one of their sales, YOU HAVE TO GO!! I promise it will be well worth it!
My parents built this picket fence lattice for us last year. My husband built a bench to go in front of it. We love sitting there around the fire pit in the middle of the summer, roasting marshmallows and making s'mores!
Last year for my husband's birthday, my parents gave him this rustic birdhouse! He built a perch to set it on. I brought home this very cute cast iron bird bath and he built a pedestal for it too. He wanted his bird friends to have deluxe accommodations in our yard! The picture below is a close up of the bird bath-I just love it!
Even though we haven't had the best weather, I can't complain. My thoughts and prayers are with those in other parts of the country and world that have been affected by the devastation that Mother Nature has created.

I am happy to be linking up to White Wednesday over at Faded Charm. So many BEAUTIFUL whites for all to enjoy!

That is one of the things I love about blogging, so much inspiration out there. White Wednesday is one of the best blog parties. Hope to see you again, blessings,Marta.

I have that same little bird bath and I just love it!!! It's been a cold and wet spring here too but it's better than the severe weather that we could be having so I can't complain either. (I have to sign in as anonymous for now...wildrosevintage)
