St. Patrick's Inspiration in the Cupboard


Hi Friends. Here it is the end of February with St. Patrick's Day coming up, but most importantly Easter is early this year. I'm trying to do a little of "the green stuff", while at the same time bringing out some Easter goodies to get started on Spring.

St. Patrick's Day Farm Table Vignette




Hi Friends, last week I looked at the calendar and had a huge awakening! Easter is the last day of March this year and it's flying toward us at breakneck speed. I love decorating for St. Patrick's Day as a head start on Spring with lot's of mossy green things, green transferware, bringing out the Spring flowers and packing away all the winter blankets. When Easter falls in March we're possibly looking at a blanket of white instead of pastel Easter eggs and an egg hunt among the daffodils.

Sweet Spot in the Garden Room



Happy Valentine's Day Friends!

Here's the last round of Valentine's Day décor friends, with the sitting area of the Garden Room. This old crate gets a workout as it seems I use it almost every season. It's the perfect size for this old bench/coffee table, giving me room for a larger element and several smaller ones. I have so much fun decorating for the seasons and holidays; taking time to plan and curate my vintage décor. But have you checked your calendar yet this year?

Love You More...



Hi Friends, This year thinking about Valentine's Day decorating, I thought I'd try to lean toward some rustic settings. January is usually a time I keep out the more rustic elements of Christmas and winter like "leftover" evergreen trees, pinecones, and winter garden elements.

Valentines Under Glass



Hello Friends, 

I've always felt Valentine's Day lends itself to a cloche vignette. Gathering small items into one grouping works especially well for a vintage Valentine setting. Mixing ephemera, antique cards, jewelry with dried flowers, and other bits and baubles can become one beautiful cohesive look when it's under glass.

Rustic Tabletop Vignette for Valentine's Day




When I think of Valentine's Day décor I tend to think about feminine, romantic, lacy settings filled with pink, white, and red. Maybe even some sparkle with rhinestones, sequins, and glittery baubles. This year I put together a few vignettes to celebrate, but in the Garden Room on the farm table I wanted to try to incorporate some Valentine looks with a more rustic vibe.

Love is Like a Box of Chocolates... in the Holiday Cupboard



The sweetest time of the year is here.

I hate to admit it, but I DO love a box of Valentine's chocolates. Of course, a bouquet is lovely too, but I have a real love of chocolate and I'd never turn that down. I get excited over which one to choose first, and the surprise it brings. Forrest Gump's momma was a wise woman. I'm switching out her quote of "Life" to "Love". Sometimes love is a bit of a surprise too.
