Forcing Spring and My Toile Find

I know, I know I am shoving spring in your face, but the weather has been wonderful here. I feel for all of you in the midwest and east that are dealing with the ice and snow. But I can't help myself. 

I found these paperwhites in Home Depot the other day and just had to buy them. I had found the perfect metal planter for $5.00 the other day and just had to do something with it. So, yes I am forcing spring. 

This is the toile valance that I had found on my great adventure. There are tabs that it hangs from but it would hang to low if I hung it that way, so I ran the rod through another part of the curtain and it looks better.

Hi Glenda,
Love the blue valance over your kitchen window. i have blue in my kitchen:) Very nice treasures you found.
and...thanks for thinking about us cold folks while you enjoy your warm weather...I saw that it may get into the 40's by Friday...we are hopeful here in the midwest...

Sure like your toile valance. I never did get some bulbs to force. Last trip to HD, I forgot to look for them. Be sure to take pictures when yours bloom. You are not forcing Spring, just making Winter a little more pleasant.

GREAT finds, love the toiles! My favorite too. Love the forced bulb idea, I think I need to do that here in Popsicle Land!!

Bisous, Sherry

I'm forcing one lonely amaryllis. I got a late start on bulbs this year so only got the one. It's doing pretty good right now but I'm sure with my brown thumb I can change that....lol.

Thanks for visiting me. I didn't think I could knit socks either but I am and it's not near as hard as I thought it would be. You really should give it a try. I'm having a blast!!!!
