It’s hard to believe we’re already half way through May!! How did that happen?! I feel like I was just talking about winter decorating, and now we’re well into spring and about to talk summer! (Not that I’m complaining mind you – we’ve had such a rainy winter and quite a gloomy spring so I’m very ready for some sun!)
Okay, I know I said I like winter. And I said I like rain. And I do. Except when it’s been weeks and weeks of it!
But this week we finally got some sun – and it felt so good! It’s still cold, but at least the grey skies are gone for now (though an Alaskan storm is supposed to bring snow this week – snow!!) If you’re anything like me, you’re ready for spring to arrive, so today I’m sharing some simple spring decorating in the kitchen.
Hi all! Today I’m joining a Valentine’s Day decorating blog hop and we’re all sharing some simple Valentine’s decorating ideas! Usually I don’t do a lot for Valentine’s Day, especially since my children are a little older now. But I do love a touch of pink as a nod to the holiday, and of course, you know how much I love flowers!
Happy New Year! I hope you all enjoyed the holidays, and I also hope you’ve had a chance to do some relaxing and unwinding after the busyness of the season.
As each year comes to a close, I usually take this last week to relax and recharge. And also, to take stock. One of the things I like most about blogging is the fact that everything is documented; it’s fun to go back and look at what I was doing, interested in, and talking about during the different points of the year. And, I love seeing how each post has done. It’s sometimes surprising to see what post did the best, and what people responded to the most (and those two are not necessarily the same!)
Hi everyone! I’m so excited to be sharing my fall home tour with you today! For this year’s Warm and Cozy Fall Home Tour, I’m joining 15 bloggers to bring you some wonderful fall decorating inspiration. If you are coming here from Edith & Evelyn Vintage, welcome! I’m so glad you’re here. Cindy has such a beautiful home – I’m always in awe of her talent and her elegant French style.
If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile now, you know how much I love real art of some kind in a house! In fact, I think it’s so important in interiors that I made it one of the tenets of my series, Collected Look Essentials. However, one of the things I most love – an absolute favorite – is art in the kitchen!
