Inspired Friday {Tea for Joy}

I was sifting through my 8 billion saved blogs via Google Reader this morning, and this photo totally caught my eye.

It makes me think and feel SPRING is here. To stay. thank goodness. Yes, I know it's a bit late to say that, since however it's almost June, but after the crazy insane winter we've had here in the Toronto area, it is so refreshing to see green grass and fresh blooms again.

This photo has made me think of the weeks to come, and how I'm hoping to enjoy them at home in the weeks preceding our new arrival. Thanks this this photo, I'm on the hunt for some vintage glass bottles and jars to hold wildflowers that will only surely make my day. I love waking up to fresh flowers, don't you?

Isn't this flower arrangement sublime? I sometimes wish we had a country house or cottage so we could host outdoor parties like these I found in County Living Magazine (online)

Do you have a country home or cottage to escape too on the weekends or year round? If you do, I'd LOVE to see it! Did you know that DecorAddict has a Flickr Group? Feel free to upload photos of your own home, cottage, or country retreat there for all to see! Or anything else in your home as well.

Lovely images! I really like the look of flowers in old jars and bottles. They seem to show off the flowers better than ornate vases.

Thanks for the tip about the Flickr group, that's awesome. I will definitely be joining you over there!

Have a great weekend, Trina!

Hi Trina,
I love these images, this post has given lots of ideas and inspiration. I live in a little country home in Australia, I'll take some photos shortly and post them to you.
