Make Believe Spring

With snow flurries and grey skies as a constant this March, I've come to the conclusion that I will have to use a little imagination to get in the mood for Easter decorating.

Since I'm making spring up, why not spend it wherever I want.  I choose Paris.  Who doesn't want to be in Paris in the springtime?

I have a cute tablecloth with all kinds of Parisian images. ~

I'll need a centrepiece for the bistro table.  Since I'm running a chicken infirmary at the moment, I have feathered things on my brain and start by putting a cute, fuzzy hen, her chicks and some moss in a huge rose bowl.  ~

Of course these aren't REAL chickens.  Remember, I keep a real chicken in my bathtub.  If the weather doesn't improve soon, I'll be dumping these chicks out of the rose bowl and using it for a wine glass!

I was hunting around for a tray for under the rose bowl and it occurred to me that a vintage egg plate would do the trick.  Some paper mache eggs are mixed with real eggs my daughters painted for me when they were little girls. ~

You wouldn't go to a bistro in Paris without having pastries, cheese and wine.  Some bistro plates, pearl handled dessert forks and knives and stemless wine glasses are perfect.  ~

Someone already started into the wine! Is that my imagination or did the power of positive thinking bring some sunshine into the room?

There's really no point in dumping that wine back into the bottle is there?  The French would be appalled!

No, I shall have to linger awhile at my bistro table and savour all that is wonderful about springtime in Paris!
