Periwinkle Blue...

 ... is one of my all time favorite colors, and yet I never decorate with it.

That is until now!

I've had this old, beat up bird house that I've been wanting to make over. I don't actually mind the rustic siding. It was the dingy, dark green roof that really needed some sprucing up.

So I cleaned it off and gave it a quick coat of Bahama Purple by Delta Ceramcoat (which I believe has {sadly} been discontinued).

Now that's what I'm talking about!

The perfect punch of color along the back fence.
The two birds came off of a birdbath that unfortunately did not make it through this crazy New England winter, despite having been covered under a tarp with a lot of other garden decor.

This last photo, with the bunny and the moon, reminds me of a favorite book I used to read to my girls when they were little, "Goodnight Moon."

Have a great week, everyone!

Spring has sprung!

The ground covers are in bloom...
 
... our birdhouse has been put up...
 
... and my garden friends are back!
 
At long last SPRING has arrived in New England!
Hoping the weather is as lovely wherever you are!
