Little hints of spring -- some favorites...

Ironstone, vintage waxed Easter grass, eggs, birds, advertising cards

jars filled with tinsel & crystals, German rabbit candy containers, millinery, mirrors

sweet baskets, pocket watches, little whisk brooms

watering cans, suitcases, nests, books

So many favorites!
When a nest or an egg
or a flower is tucked in
 -- spring unfolds...

And my favorite...add vintage waxed Easter grass to anything -- Spring!!

I will end with a little story about a wish:
As I climbed the stairs to the second floor at the
Columbus Antique Mall in Wisconsin -- I wished aloud,
"If I could find a bag of old Easter grass, that would just make my day."
No kidding, third booth I went into, there was a
bag of vintage waxed Easter grass --
label read "Bag of old Easter grass".
Moral -- wishes come true
(or perhaps, use your wishes wisely)

**P.S. I will use Barb's idea for decorating --
I added all my spring stuff Sunday from my big green trunk...
now I will add bits & pieces of Easter,
a little each day from my two big containers in the basement. 
A little handful brought up the stairs
-- so I can relish each piece.
