Spring inspiration from Becky at Buckets of Burlap

Good morning!   I wanted to share the lovely talents of Becky from Buckets of Burlap with you today!  Becky has put together some wonderful spring inspiration that I know we are all in need of as we come to the end of the long winter months.

Becky takes gorgeous pictures and has lovingly and beautifully decorated her home.  If you have not had the chance to read her blog, Bucket of Burlap, I highly recommend it!!  I love your style Becky and am so thrilled to feature you here on my blog!

Here is a special guest post from Becky...

Hello everyone!
I'm Becky, from the blog Buckets of Burlap,  and I'm honored to be guest posting here at the fabulous French Larkspur with Tracey!
Are you ready for SPRING?  Here in Louisiana, Spring is showing up all around us.
I wanted to share some photos of a relaxing way to spend a warm spring afternoon.

My youngest daughter did a little "modeling" for me.  We used store-bought bouquets and several vintage items to create a Spring Tea Picnic.
An old aluminum tea kettle holds the flowers.  
And a silver tray is lined with many varieties of tea cups.

We layered a jute rug atop a white IKEA throw to rest upon.  The little white chippy tray holds fresh raspberries.  It's a lovely spot in our meadow to relax and read a book among the wildflowers.

My little one is wearing a dress I wore in my Aunt's wedding when I was 10 years old.
I love saving special heirlooms for my kids to enjoy.

It's also the perfect time of year to get out to the local flea markets or antique malls in search of amazing treasures.  What will you be on the lookout for this Spring?
  Has Spring arrived where you are?
Maybe soon you could find a special spot outdoors to enjoy a good book :)
I sure hope so.

Thanks, Tracey for allowing me to share a little of our Southern world with your readers.
Have a wonderful day!
