Easter Blessings!

                                                              Hello everyone,
                             It has been awhile since my last post,but time just seemed to slip away on me. I am sure many of you have been busy as well with Easter preparations etc.
                               I gathered up some of my vintage china and washed them for our Easter table.
                                  I got some beautiful tulips and roses for our Easter table as well.Notice that sunlight streaming in-after several cloudy days we are now in for a sunny spell,
                             I spent some time setting our Easter tables for our family dinner tomorrow  evening.
                             I am using a mix of vintage china in soft pastel colors.

                                 The cross is a reminder of the sacrifice made for us and the reason we celebrate Easter.
                                  The bunny with little treats for the kiddo's.
                                                    Pretty roses.

Our usual two tables for our big family who all live close by.

            Wishing you all Easter Blessings!

In Light of Spring

                                                       Hello everyone,
            Hope you enjoyed a lovely weekend .After getting a little more snow overnight the sun came out this afternoon and there was a feeling of spring in the air this afternoon. We finally saw our first robin in the garden this year so spring must surely be on the way.
                            Anyway,it is spring in our sunroom so I can't complain.
                             I love to have the sunlight streaming in our little sunroom with some cheerful plants blooming on the windowsill.

                                                 A touch of Easter.
                                I planted these hyacinths several weeks ago and they are beautiful now and fill the sunroom with their fragrance.
                                               Love this little bunny.
                   Thank you for popping by and I hope you have a good week.

Vintage Style Guest Bath

                                                          Hello everyone,
                              I hope your week is going well. The weeks seem to be slipping by pretty fast-it is hard to believe that winter is officially over already. One of the projects that we were working on this past week was our small upstair guest bath.
                            So the wainscotting got a fresh coat of white paint as well as the floors.
The upper part of the walls were grey  before and the curtain was a grey toile(sorry, I don't have a photo of the before) so this deep aqua color Behr Marina Isle is a nice change.

                              This pretty bucket from Time Worn Treasures and Antiques looks pretty holding some guest towels. The old cast iron tub got a fresh coat of paint on the outside as well.I love these comfortable old bathtubs.
                                              Some of the little details.

               I am happy with the new look of our little vintage guest bath. It is great to be getting some of these projects done because we will soon(hopefully) be able to get out and work in the garden again.

Happy First Day of ....Spring?

                                                           Hello everyone,

           I wanted to pop in and wish you all a happy first day of spring and since we all want some spring color ~ I have some for you!
I sure do love all these spring colors.


                                        Looking forward to our spring garden.

                                         Scenes from around our spring garden.

                        one of my favorite shots from a past spring. It cheers me just looking at it!

However, the reality of our world today was this winter white scene. We had a mini storm blow through this morning and another is apparently coming on Friday. I have not spotted a single robin in our garden yet this year and last year they were around by the end of January-I think they know something about a later arrival of actual spring weather. The good news is -it will come sooner....or later!

 I will leave you with a nice spring cup of tea! But, first I would like to thank all of you for your kind and encouraging words on my last post- they are my spring cheer!!!

Thank you for visiting,
