Flower Fantasy: Interior Design for Spring

Brunschwig & Fils
I bet you are as ready as I am to have Spring arrive. It won't be long 
until it is officially here. One of the first signs we look for are flowers! 
The fabric houses love flowers too and use them for 
inspiration when they create their designs. 
And what beauties they create! 

Brunschwig & Fils
It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: 
when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. 
 ~Charles Dickens,Great Expectations

Carlton Varney
Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, 
there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night.  
~Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke

Colefax and Fowler 
Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!"  ~Robin Williams

Charlotte Moss
I love spring anywhere, but if I could choose I would always 
greet it in a garden.  ~Ruth Stout

Lee Jofa
Science has never drummed up quite as effective a tranquilizing agent 
as a sunny spring day.  ~W. Earl Hall

Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world.  ~Virgil A. Kraft

Where man sees but withered leaves,
God sees sweet flowers growing.
~Albert Laighton

         In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.   
                                                    ~Margaret Atwood

In the spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six different kinds 
of weather inside of four and twenty hours.  ~Mark Twain

Springtime is the land awakening.  The March winds are the morning yawn.  
~Quoted by Lewis Grizzard in Kathy Sue Loudermilk, I Love You

Maybe this will hold us over until Spring arrives on March 20th!
Don't forget that tonight we Spring Forward!
