Retro Tuesday: Smells like SPRING!

That's just wishfull thinking! I wish Spring was here, but it's probably at least one month away...

We had another 6 inches of snow Sunday night so I went shovelling yesterday and it was raining and the snow was wet and heavy and I nearly cried....Later in the afternoon the temp started dipping and it started snowing again....Guess what? I nearly cried...Over night everything froze and now it's around 3F (minus 18 C); needless to say that even if I wanted to I couldn't shovel and anyways I strained my back so I took happy pills and I'm resting.

Since I'm lomging for Spring and I guess I'm not the only one....I decided to have a spring themed giveaway!

Here's what one lucky winner will get:

4 delicious Spring Blossom Green Corelle cups, a cream and sugar set from the same pattern,

A Pyrex cinderella Spring Blossom Green 441 bowl, a S&P  miniature Ball jar set (new in box) form the 70's, a Pyrex spice shaker and a package of paper napkings with snowdrops on it-one of the first flowers to bloom in Spring.

Contest is open to everyone.
Here's what you have to do!

1) Be a follower
2) Leave a comment telling me what you prefer about Spring
and for an additionnal chance....Blog about my giveaway and tell me about it.

Now this is really important....You must be a follower and leave a comment in order to be eligible.

Contest is open until  February 28th 12:00 pm
My cats will randomly select a winner by hacking a fur ball on a printed comment (hihihi)

Good luck!

Yay! My favorite thing about Spring is that is aint Winter!
Seriously, I love the new green of spring, the flowers, the temp, the smells and the long days.

Well, one thing I like about spring is that the hairballs end up outside instead of inside! That's not really my favourite thing. My real favourite is that it's a season of hope and renewal, and that seems to be reflected in people's attitudes -- I find people more optimistic and cheerful in the springtime.

It's really spring when you see the tulips and little crocuses break through the ground! Every day, we're getting closer -more daylight hours!!!

What I love about Spring...warm enough for cute cotton sun-dresses but cool enough to pair them with a cute sweater. Today is like a perfect spring day, here in Plano, Texas....75 degrees and perfectly sunny. Last week we had sleet and snow...~shrug~. Thanks for the give-a-way.

Things I love about spring:
Buds on the trees, watching people trying to persuade their lawnmowers to start after a winter of doing nothing, tulip bulbs waking up and seeking the sunshine, and lastly....I can change my 13.5 tog winter duvet for something a little less heavy!!
I love your blog, but am all the way across the Atlantic :-( BUT, I can sit and drool at all your lovely pictures, and feel lucky that I found such a great blog. Come and say hi over on my blog if you get 5 mins xxxxxx

Spring is the most lovely time of year! The weather is perfect. I love the quote from Miss Congeniality about the perfect date because it describes another reason why spring is so great!

"Well, my idea of a perfect date would be April 23rd. Because it's not too warm or too cold, and all you need is a light jacket." -Cheryl miss "Rhode Island"

Why this quote came into my mind IMMEDIATELY I have no idea. However I do that it is one silly way of explaining why I love a season.

I am in love with Pyrex! I even have my husband looking for me wherever he goes, just in case. Its such a fun treasure hunt.

Thanks for letting us participate in the opportunity to potentially own one of your pieces of the thrifting world! :)

Smiles,
The Joyful Thrifter

My favorite thing about spring is smelling things beginning to grow outside. I hate the frigid icy staleness of winter and am over the moon when the grass stops being brown and begins growing green and the trees start to get little buds on them!

Claire said...

Thanks for all the effort you put into blogging. It is so nice to hear from Montrealers as it seems that most thrift bloggers are in USA.What a difference for them! Sometimes we have snow in May! So spring is really welcome when it finally does come. Nothing like throwing off the darn boots and walking in real shoes!

my favorite thing about spring is the increased light. Winter is so dark, and it gets dark so early. When spring rolls around it is getting dark much later!

N.Llenas said...

Im a follower and my favorite thing about spring is the smell of leaves returning and flowers blooming.

Miss Emmi said...

How did I miss seeing this post? Amazing prizes!

My favourite thing about spring is that first day when you can get about comfortably without a jacket - the air is cool and fresh but the sun is warm. Perfect weather.

Dixie said...

What I love about spring is that the weather is perfect. Not cold or hot. Plus baseball season is here.

stacey said...

LOL- that made me laugh when you said that about your cat!!!

Okay I am following:)
I LOVE Spring - I love NOT having to wear a jacket & cooking dinner outside:)
Thank You!

My favorite part of spring is the sound of birds chirping and tulips blooming. Which seem so far away since it's still snowing at my house.
