I think Spring is finally here in Texas.  The weather this week has been beautiful and it’s motivated me to do some freshening up both at home and up at my booth.

I’m not much of a gardener, but I do try to have a little herb garden each year.  I had a lavender and rosemary plant that actually made it through two growing seasons, but then were wiped out by a hard cold snap earlier in the winter.  The garden space has been looking pretty sad since then.

While the big boys were at school on Tuesday, the little one and I worked on digging up the dead plans and weeds to make room for a new crop.

Those little boy feet just couldn’t stay out of all that freshly tilled dirt 🙂

I planted some rosemary, basil (my favorite!), thyme, and lemon mint. I use a lot of fresh rosemary and basil in my cooking, and I have a few recipes that call for fresh thyme. The lemon mint was the wild card, not too sure how I will use it but I thought it would at least be pretty and smell nice.

All of that fresh green . . . it just makes me happy.  I’m so ready for spring and things to start growing again!

I also had to do some freshening up at my booth space this week.  I sold my reupholstered french chair and small blue dresser, so there was a big hole in my layout.  I don’t have any other big pieces finished yet to move up there, but some rearranging of the little that’s there helped.  It was time to restock some smalls too.  I dropped off a fresh supply of old sheet music packs.  It’s hard to keep those in stock!

Also this beautiful vintage Texas sketchbook I found at a garage sale.

I added in a few more touches of spring here and there.  I absolutely love the yellow and blue on this old cake tin.

And a few more vintage bird postcards and cutouts pinned to the awesome teal windmill base I found recently at a market.

And remember this super cute miniature house I showed you a week or so ago?  It was the mystery house I found at an estate sale . . . not sure if it was meant to be a bird house, or some other animal housing.

Well, while I was working in my space, another dealer came in to chat some and she was admiring it.  I asked her opinion of what it might be, and she said given all the detail work she thought it may have been a builder’s sample or display.  Hmm, that was something I hadn’t thought of.  Maybe it’s not for an animal at all!

It’s always fun being up at the mall and talking junk with other people who appreciate it.  And it is so refreshing to be seeing more of the warm sun and bits of green popping up outside.  I hope spring is showing up wherever you are too. I know it’s been a long, hard winter for so many people.

A reminder, the Wholemade by Jen all-natural skin care package giveaway ends tomorrow, Friday March 28th at 10:00 CST. Be sure to enter if you haven’t already!

Next week I will have some great furniture makeovers to reveal, so please stop back by.  See you then!
