The First Day of Spring and Vintage Barkcloth

Did you know that March 1st is the first day of spring?


The first climatological day of spring according to the world meteorological organization is

on March 1st in the northern hemisphere.


Honestly I don’t really know what that means.

Outside I still see lots of snow.

But the sun is out today!


So excited spring time brings flowers.

And we get a little more light everyday.

And it also brings the Vintage Market

Do you see that sweet apron?

Handmade by someone.

I just found it while out junking.


For now it adorns my mannequin.

And I added a little vintage bling too!

I plan on wearing this sweet little number at the Vintage Market


I think you will be able to spot me!

Are   you excited spring is finally here?



If you are in the area mark your calenders!

I hope to see you at the Vintage Market

    What a perfect and pretty apron to be wearing at your upcoming market Anne.
    I hope that Spring arrives early for you, so you can once again be out in the sun. March 1st signalled the first day of Autumn for us here in the southern hemisphere. I’m sure many in Australia will welcome the cooler season after one of our hottest summers in decades.

      Thank you Kerryanne! We had a pretty hot summer last year and felt just as you all do.But now after the cold and gloomy weather I am looking forward to sun and heat.I am sure by the end of summer I will be longing for those cool fall nights!
      Have a wonderful weekend!

    I did not know that March 1 was the first day of spring. Your barkcloth apron is so delightful. I love it!! Sure wish I lived close enough to come to the vintage market. Many years ago we lived in Wheaton, but I don’t think that show was around then. :-(

    Hi Anne,
    Your apron is so cute and you will look so divine in it at the show. I am bummed I will miss that show. I have gone before and it is so wonderful. I will be doing the Spring Junk Bonanza show that week end in Minnesota. Darn why are all the good shows the same week end!!!! Loved seeing the sun today.
