Share Your Style #11

I really want to personally thank all of you who have been coming by each week to join in the party. There are so many wonderfully creative links; each of you are helping to build a fun and inspiring place to share your blogs. I had so many favorites this week, that I have to share two!

Poppy from With a Dash of Color shared a Spring Tea Tray 
and wonderful moss covered candles.

...and Penny from Penny's Vintage Home has been working
 on her Greenhouse, where she shared this wonderful old dresser
 filled with flowers.
Just so Spring-y. I want to live there!

This last week I painted an old Concrete Pedestal for the Dining Room and Styled my Sofa Table using neutral elements. If you haven't had a chance to come by, I hope you'll have time to catch these two posts.

Concrete Pedestal for the Dining Room

One thing I've learned in living in this new house, that's smaller and "Open Concept", is that keeping a sense of "flow" is very important. Having a Kitchen, Living Room, Entry Hall and Dining Room that are all one big space can present some challenges in decorating.

Potting Bench Beginnings

Over the weekend we were able to get alot accomplished by renting a U-Haul trailer, and with the help of our son-in-law, we emptied out one whole unit and then combined the last two. We started this a year ago with 4 big units that are climate controlled, so we were spending big bucks each month just to store all our stuff.

Small treasures...

I've felt a little frustrated these last few weeks on the unpacking front. We accomplished alot last weekend in the garage organization, but now box after box awaits my attention. I can't do much of it on my own since I have to wait for Hubbs to be around to lift the heavy stuff. We've made so much headway, but then I look at what seems mountains, and it's easy for me to get overwhelmed.

Share Your Style #9

Hi Everyone, it's that time of the week again, and I'm so glad you're here! Time to Share Your Style with all your great posts about what you've been up to this last week. Hope you're having some wonderful Spring days and getting your spaces geared up for warmer weather.

Last week I did a post on some of our new little blooming trees in the back yard, Before they're gone was about cutting some Spring Branches, and then I added my Scrolly Chalkboard to my kitchen cupboard, with What's on Top of the Cupboard. Hope you'll get a chance to catch up if you haven't visited this last week.

On top of the Cupboard...

We've been working hard lately to get more boxes opened and unpacked, so we'll have space to bring more over from storage. It's a domino effect, with storage shelving going into the basement storage room first, then organizing the garage and getting Holiday tubs and decor stacked up and out of the way. I'm finding things that honestly I didn't remember I had... and probably don't need. But that's beside the point, because I'm now having to go through box after box of "stuff".

I am finding some of my favorite little things, though.

Before they're gone...

We've had a few storms and windy days lately, so I thought I'd better get some photos of my blooming branches before all the blooms were blown away. I had planned on doing this early yesterday before a heavy down pour that I knew was headed our way...but something else came up.

Share Your Style #8

Hi Everyone, I hope you're having a good week and recovering from any sugar overdoses from last weekend. I've loved seeing all your wonderful Easter and Spring Inspiration from the last few parties. Things are greening up and blooming all over blogland!

So, Welcome to Share Your Style!

Last week I posted about never being too old for an Easter Basket, and then shared a few seasonal  Botanical Prints that I'm using in the Kitchen Sitting Area. Hope you'll catch up with me if you haven't seen those yet.

Decorating with Seasonal Botanical Prints

Hi Everyone, I hope you had a wonderful Easter! We had an early dinner/late lunch at my sister's. What would you call that...Dunch? Linner? Since there aren't any little ones running around, (except their doggy, and you can't call Harley, little), things were pretty low key, and I got to enjoy my belated vanilla coconut cake. yum.

Is it Easter or Resurrection Sunday?

I'm going to be honest with you, last night I sat down to edit a few pics I had taken of my entry console that I had decorated for Easter, but I just couldn't. I still haven't found all my boxes of Holiday decor, one of those being some Easter things that I've used in the past. So, I just put out a few cute vintage Easter cards with baby chicks on them, a vintage bunny photo print, and called it "done". Happy Easter...

But that was my problem...

You're never too old for an Easter Basket...

I remember fixing Easter baskets for our girls even after they were married. I knew how much they enjoyed them, even when they weren't really candy fanatics any longer. They might be grown-ups, but they still wanted and expected, their baskets. So we ever get too old for an Easter basket?
