This basket sits just in the entrance in front of my cat collection. I use it for seasonal decorations. In automn it was filled with pumpkins and for Christmas of course with Christmas stuff. Since then it was empty because I hibernated.

Now the first signs of spring are showing up and suddenly I wanted to do a spring decoration.

and this was the result. The flowers are all fake of course otherwise I would have to do it each week. But it looks very welcoming.

During the week I went with my friend to a junk market because she needed a table. She didn't find a table but we both found this cute paper holder, one for her, one for me, I just couldn't resist ! Now it sits in the living room.

I think hibernating is much cheaper !

LOL! You couldn't NOT have that magazine holder! It was made FOR you! Your flowers are lovely too! Even fake - they still bring cheer! I'm READY for Spring -- but the thermometer is not... *sigh*

I LOVE the eyes of that cat!!! Totally understand why you couldn't resist it.

Yes, it's much cheaper to hibernate, I'm a perfect example of that, haven't bought anything in ages now!
