spring kitchen tablescape

Remember these pretty, little white blooms I shared last time?  You can see them here. Well, there’s a ton of them in the front yard. And they are so sweet and delicate. So I wanted to use them inside somehow. But they are so small I was having a hard time figuring out what typeContinue reading “spring kitchen tablescape”

rejoice & rebirth

Happy first day of spring! It’s the season of rebirth when everything is starting to sprout, grow, bloom… The arbor into our vegetable garden is taking off & I love the way it looks this time of year.

We were away for easter last year (since it usually corresponds with spring break) so I tapped into the last easter tables I set at home. I have some ideas for this year but I haven’t been able to work on it yet.Continue reading “inspired by easter tablescapes from the past”

easter decorations

Last week while running some errands I noticed that easter merchandise is already marked down. How is this possible?  I haven’t even started decorating for easter. Not that I mind that if I do desire to add any new easter decor this year it will be at a discount, but the point is that itContinue reading “easter decorations”

spring has sprung

So we just got back from a week in paradise. This was our daily view.  Not bad huh? And when we got home we realized it had been gorgeous around these parts as well. Our Bradford pear trees in the backyard are in full bloom! We have 5 that line the back fence in theContinue reading “spring has sprung”
