Hello everyone! I don’t know about you, but I am definitely ready for spring! Here in California it has been so, so rainy this year and unseasonably cold! I’m sure not cold to any Easterners, but cold for us, haha! 😉 All the grey days have made me even more ready for spring than usual, so I’ve been bringing in lots of flowers to cheer up the house. I find flowers brighten up even the darkest days, and make the house feel much more cheerful – even in the dead of winter!
I’m not one to do a lot of decorating for Valentine’s Day, but I do like to do a little something as a nod to the holiday.When the kids were younger, I did much more in terms of decor and gifts. However, this year I wanted to keep it simple while still making it feel festive!
Hi there and happy Friday friends! Today brings us another French Country Fridays, where myself and six other bloggers are sharing our ideas, decor, tips and even DIYs in French-ish style!
This past week was my kids’ spring break, so not a whole lot of blogging got done! However, I am in the process of re-styling my dining room and I blogged about my ideas for a new dining table if you missed it. I’ll be sharing some changes in the breakfast room area soon, as well as (finally!) new drapes for the downstairs! It feels so good to finally be doing some of the things that have been on the to-do list for years!
An arrangement I did last spring with white hydrangeas and seeded eucalyptus in a vintage ironstone pitcher.And the best thing about them? They work year-round in decorating. A lot of other flowers have a strong seasonal association. Peonies in the spring, paper whites in the winter, or gladiolas in the summer. But hydrangeas really are around most of the year, so they look great at any time, for any occasion.
Seriously?! Does it get any lovelier than this? I adore the white hydrangeas against the old wooden box. Via Debra Hall Lifestyle.
Hi there and Happy Friday! Every month I get together with a group of bloggers to do a monthly blog hop. Well, this month we’ve decided to talk flowers! Flowers are in abundance this time of year, so we thought it would be fun to focus on decorating with flowers. And who doesn’t love doing that?! If you’ve been here before, you know that flowers are a big part of my decor.
