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.

Green and Pink and Cottage All Over

Hey Everyone, Green is my favorite color this time of year. Not only outside, but inside. We're having a small "green-up" around here with grass and a few blooming trees, but my tulip tree's blooms were frozen this last few days which is really disheartening. It's still too early for much other green outdoors, but inside I can gather some of my green items and make myself feel like Spring is just around the corner... with no overnight freezes.

March Decor and Recipes at All About Home #187

Hey Everyone, I guess we all have "fallen forward" this weekend. If you're like me it takes me a minute to get myself adjusted. I'm like our sweet little kitties, who just couldn't understand why their feeding time was now being delayed. We're still on the yo-yo weather pattern with temps up and down and nighttime freeze warnings coming up. Welcome to life in Missouri in early March.

Spring Traditions at All About Home #186

Hi Friends, this week was my Birthday week, and our older daughter and her fiancé came down for a quick visit and dinner out. The weather is on an upward trend toward nicer days and warmer temps, but typical first week of March... 30 to 75 degrees and back, in just a few days. Of course we'll have some cooler weather up and down till the beginning of May. Several days of outside work improved the looks of the yard (thankyou hubby!) And a visit from our new goosey friend for the kids to enjoy. These aren't my pics, because I haven't been able to get a good one of him. He's larger than his Canadian Geese friends, with different markings, and very handsome. He and his mate (regular Canadian goose) come by at least once a day to visit and snack on birdseed.

Bring on the Green in the Holiday Cupboard

March always sees the green transferware show up in the Holiday Cupboard, since St. Patrick's Day is my unofficial start to (early) Spring. And it's my birthday month too, so I make it a fresh start after a long cold and dreary winter. When I first started collecting green transferware I thought I'd be limited in displaying them. But now they come out in late February and stick around through Spring and early Summer until July 4th decorating.

Spring Decor and DIY at All About Home #185

Hi Friends, this week it's "goodbye February and Hello March"! In my head March is early Spring and bunnies and green and anything mossy, start running through my brain. Even with a bit of snow on the ground all things "early Spring" are fair game.

Flowering Bulbs for Vintage Spring Display

When we moved into this house a few years ago, I was so excited to see what kinds of blooming bulbs and perennials might start showing their little green sprouts and beautiful blooms as we approached Spring. Needless to say for such a lovely large yard and landscaping, there were very few flowers or bulbs that showed up. After living here for four years I now know why...

Farmtable Vignette with Daffodils

Hello friends, it's been since the beginning of the year that I've shared what's happening here on the farm table in the Garden Room. It's late February now so it was time for an early Spring look with some daffodils and narcissus with a few pussy willows mixed in for a natural look. It's still wintery looking outdoors, but at least I can have a little green and color indoors.

Hints of Spring at All About Home #184

Hey Everyone, Hello and welcome to All About Home #184. We're heading into the end of February and before we know it, "Spring will have Sprung". We're seeing days in the 60's with a few cold snaps thrown in, and I'm itching to grab some blooming spring plants for some garden-y decor.

Coffee Table Garden Room Vignette

Hello Friends, Happy St. Patty's Day! Are you wearing green today and preparing your slow cooker dinner of corned beef and cabbage? I am wearing green, and I do love corned beef, but I can't get there with the cooked cabbage... Anyway, I'm celebrating today that I'm a teensy bit Irish. I thought I'd share a little bit of St. Patrick's Day out here in the Garden Room with a new Shamrock plant and an old pink/green quilt on the wicker settee.

Spring Decorating Ideas at All About Home #135

Hello friends and Welcome to the All About Home Link Party!

WOW. We had so many great posts last week, honestly I could have done a dozen features. You all are coming up with so many fun ideas and Spring inspiration! Hard to believe it's mid-March, and I'm definitely ready for that warmer weather and thinking about planting flowers and getting outside for a good yard clean-up.

Flowering Bulbs Spring Vignette

I mentioned last week how we didn't have any flowering bulbs planted at this house. (insert sad face) This last 2 years after 2 spine surgeries, I just wasn't up to a plan for bulb planting in the Fall, but I'm hoping this year I can get a few out. (optimistic face!) A mental plan is the first step to getting something accomplished!

Waiting for Spring at All About Home #134

Hello friends and Welcome
 to the All About Home Link Party!

We're back in the deep freeze this week, but know within a few weeks more and more warmer days will get us closer to Spring weather. We're loving all the wonderful Spring-y inspiration, and even though it may still be chilly outside, on the inside I'm ready for Spring. On a more serious note, I continue to pray for all those in Ukraine as I know you all do also. 
Thank you so much for taking the time to come by and share what you're up to this week. We're always excited to seeing all the great DIYs, decor, crafts, gardening, recipes, and seasonal fun that you're all creating.

Vintage Cottage Weekend

Hello Everyone, welcome to the first 
Vintage Cottage Weekend!

Amber from Follow the Yellow Brick Home and I thought it would be fun to start a weekend tandem post where we celebrate our love for all things Vintage Cottage. We both have our roots in buying and selling vintage and antique goods in vintage shops and markets, AND we both love English Cottage and French Cottage decor. We want to share some of our ideas, inspiration, and thoughts on all things Vintage Cottage Style. Today I thought I'd kick off our new weekend get-together with some inspiration from a cottage staple.

You all know I LOVE any kind of vintage cupboards...
So I thought it would be fun to do a little celebrating the Irish way
and share some decor inspiration with an iconic kitchen staple
...the Irish Cupboard.

St. Patrick's Day in the Holiday Cupboard

Here in the lower Midwest, March is coming in like a lamb, and what a wonderful way to start my birthday month. We have a week of upper 60's and low 70's. It won't last of course, but it's a lovely, optimistic way to bring on thoughts of Spring. I'm just hoping that buds won't pop out and then we have a freezing spree.

Fun Spring Inspiration at All About Home Link Party #133

Hello friends and Welcome
 to the All About Home Link Party!

We may thaw out a bit this week, as we're supposed to get into the upper 60's. I love all the seasons but I'm ready for Spring. I imagine most of you are feeling the same. This week it's all about some fun Spring-y inspiration.

Thank you so much for taking the time to come by and share what you're up to this week. We're always excited to seeing all the great DIYs, decor, crafts, gardening, recipes, and seasonal fun that you're all creating.

 On another more serious note, most of us know this has been a long sad week with the invasion of Ukraine. We also have lost two lovely talented ladies here in blogland. Paula from Virginia Sweet Pea and Michelle of The Painted Hinge. Please join me in praying for strength and peace for their families and the Ukrainian people.
