Hello knitters!

To all the knitters out there, hello!  I just started knitting.  I’ve made a small lap blanket with pom-poms.  It was a lot of fun. It is far from perfect, but that’s OK because I made it myself.  The color of the wool is fig.  I really like this color and having matching fig colored pillows. Here I’ve taken one of my flower arrangements and added some rust colored feathers berries and branches to change …

Easter Vignette

The wisteria is such a delicate flower. It is so soft looking with its little petals cascading down to make a beautiful long cone-like flower. The wispy foliage makes a statement as it sways in the wind. I’ve used a lot of silver in this grouping from the mercury vase filled with faux white tulips to the mercury catch pot that has a fern in it. Oh and don’t forget the silver candle off to …

White Blossoms for Easter

These white blossoms just scream spring. I tucked some blue easter grass into the mouth of the vase and tied a blue bow around it. The two wooden bunnies are watching over their egg. In the center of the buffet, the glass vase holds some purple Easter grass that compliments the lilac eggs. The feathers add some texture. The stained glass plate combines many shades of purple, silver, and blue brings together the vase with …

Pussywillows and Tulips 🌷🌷

As I do love purple and I like to add it in where ever possible. In this Tuscan vase I have tulips and pussywillows. The basket also has some pussywillows poking through and some white feathers. The lilac eggs in the basket are sitting on a bed of matching grass which is also sticking out of the Tuscan vase. There is some grass and feathers around the candle holders. Here on the chair the fur …

Blue Birds on Branches

I’ve continued the bird theme over on the buffet in my dining room. I told you that I love vases that I can use for every season. These beautiful green branches scream spring. Can you spy the little blue bird perched on a branch? The runner is a mellow yellow that picks up on the yellow of the eggs.  There is a feather wreath around bird dish and a metal tray off to the side again …

Are You My Mother?

Are You My Mother? I think all parents and grandparents remember this story by Dr. Seuss. I, myself, have read it quite a few times to the little ones. Every time I see these two ducks, I’m reminded of that story. They are sitting with some fallen forsythia flowers and blue eggs. Here I am bringing a definite pop of spring with the large vase that is a mellow yellow compared to the vibrant color …

Ceramic Vase Dressed Up

Now to get the whole picture, this vase is 25″ tall and 14″ wide. So it is quite large. This is vintage Pottery Barn, and I do love using it for numerous occasions. It’s one of those things that they say you can dress up or dress down. Usually I have branches in it. Come back for Easter and see.  But today I only have a rose draped on it,.  Because this makes a statement on …

Year-Round Tuscan Vase

This charming Tuscan vase and catch pot are perfect to use year round.  All you have to do is change out the accents to match the season. I brought a little bit of nature inside for autumn. It almost feels like you are taking a walk in the woods surrounded by Mother Nature with the deer and squirrel leaning against a rock with acorns scattered around. My husband’s favorite animal is deer which also lets …
