Touches of Pink

     Hello everyone,

I hope your week is going well. We are
enjoying some spring weather here again~
can't believe March is over already.
Robins have returned to the garden and
I see birds collecting for their nests .....
so spring is in the air!

I am still enjoying my tulip bouquets and
they add a nice touch of spring to the

Once again it is a simple tablescape
with touches of pink.

This pretty china was a gift
from a friend last year.
The vintage linen was
a thrift find.

   Tea anyone?

                                                                                the rain starts here for a couple of days~
                                                                                I am looking forward to those April showers
                                                                                bringing May flowers. I have been pouring
                                                                                over my garden photos from previous years and
                                                                                can't wait for those garden blossoms again.

                                                                                         I am joining BNOTP for Tablescape
                                                                                                       Hope you have a lovely day!

                                       Easter dinner tomorrow.....our youngest daughter
                                        and her family are in Florida now so we will miss

White Cottage

               Hello everyone,

                 I hope your week is going well.

                  I am getting ready for Easter as I
                  am sure many of you are as well.

   I am in the mood for white
  today so as I am changing
         the curtains in the bay window
to white for the summer.

                   I love this big bouquet of
                              pink tulips.... they will be part of
                            my Easter tables this weekend.

                                                                           Calm and soothing whites.

                                                                       White Cottage style.

Welcome Spring

Hello everyone,

 I am happy that spring has arrived
here even though the weather has been
a bit colder lately.
The sun is shining but the wind is blowing
today. However,we know good things are
about to happen soon and I love the longer

I am almost done of my spring
cleaning. Before Easter arrives
it will be all done and hopefully,
I can clean the boathouse and cottage
soon before getting into the garden.
One of my spring chores \was
  changing my Friendly Village  dishes
for my Florentine vintage china.

                         I have a few bunnies hopping
            around in here too.

              My spring tea

                                                             I am so looking forward to getting
                                                             out in the garden and seeing the return
                                                             of these spring beauties.

It is March break here on the Island
so we have some of our grandchildren
coming for a sleepover visit .....always
fun. On Easter Sunday we will be hosting
our family dinner so I am looking
forward to that as well.

I am happy that you took 
the time to visit me!

Peaceful Sunday Afternoon Tea

            Hello everyone,

         On this beautiful sunny last day of
      winter, I thought this cozy corner
                    in our bedroom would be perfect for my 
                          afternoon tea. The sun is streaming in and my
    plants are giving me a boost of
spring color.
Our bedroom 

Chamomile tea will add to my
peaceful atmosphere.

A small teapot ' Grace' is
perfect for one.

Wishing you a peaceful Palm Sunday

Take care,
