QUICK AND EASY SPRING CENTERPIECE

I put together a quick and easy spring centerpiece for our table.


I used a basket, a few flowers and greenery, some spring colored
 kitchen towels, and a moss covered bunny.
All things I had around the house.


I really like grouping things in baskets and I love the texture that it adds.


My bunny sheds little green pieces all over the place
but I love him anyway.
He's a keeper.

I HOPE YOU HAVE A WARM AND SUNNY DAY!

THIS POEM WILL MAKE YOU CRY

I love this beautiful poem about home but be warned ~
          it will bring tears to your eyes.

       A PLACE WE CALL HOME

I have travelled all over the world

Been to the world’s most famous places


seen the Victoria Fall’s falling waters

Have left tracks on the well known deserts

But there is one favorite place among all

A place where love has always been there for me

That’s a place we all call home

No matter how far I can go ,I wont forget it

Even though sometimes we are having little at home ,

I will not depart from home , its my favorite place

No matter how much luxury I have found out there ,

It can never be compared to this beautiful place

Home holds many memories for me

I can look back and see those best days I had at home

So full of love , so full of laughter

And I can look back again and see those days

Where we had little to eat and less to wear but we still laughed joyfully

No place can be compared with home

I can find comfort all over the world

I can run as far as my feet can take me,

I can have all the beauties in the world

But they can never be compared to this beautiful place

This is the most wonderful place for me among all places

The place which I will never forget, a place where everything is there

The place that gives me comfort and relaxation

That’s a place we all call home, home sweet home.

VINTAGE COTTAGE KITCHEN

I have the most adorable kitchen to share with you today.
If you like vintage, pastel colors, and pink refrigerators, 
you're going to love this.
I ran across this kitchen on the Barn Light Electric Blog.
This renovation won the grand prize in a photo contest 
and I can see why.


The pendant lights which are perfect for the space are just one of so
many wonderful details:
- simple white cabinetry with marble countertops
- open shelving with cute scalloped borders are loaded with vintage
enamel cannisters, jadeite cake plates, and pretty dishes
- industrial range with aqua tile backsplash and large corbels on each side
-  and of course the pink retro fridge is like the cherry on top


The rest of the open space blends seamlessly with the kitchen.
Isn't it pretty?


Soft blue paint on the walls and crisp white sofas.
Two gorgeous chandeliers.
Love the big old cabinet with the large basket on top too.


You can see a little more of the kitchen from this angle.
It looks like there's a big farmhouse sink and 
some storage with glass doors at the far end.

I hope you enjoyed taking a look at this kitchen and living space.
FYI ~ I'm not being compensated for this post ~ I just loved this
when I saw it and wanted to share.

HAVE A GREAT DAY!

TOUCHES OF SPRING IN THE KITCHEN

Hi Everyone,
I've been adding some little touches of Spring here and there.



A few little purchases from Homegoods
brought about some changes on my kitchen shelves.





Some blue jelly beans in a jar and my pink cake stand
add some Spring to my baking corner.




I couldn't resist this sweet little primrose at the grocery store.



And here is my favorite bunny wearing her cozy pink sweater.  



The little burlap bag was found at Michael's for $1.00.
I simply added some flowers I already had
and hung it on my old cabinet door.


Have a wonderful weekend.
I hope we all have some spring like weather!
~ let's keep our fingers crossed ~
