Hi Sweet Friends,
Hope you are all doing well, and
staying warm, cause I know there
were more Winter storms this
We had a really nice and quiet 3
day weekend, just the 2 of us......
which was unexpected, as hubby
actually forgot he was off for
Martin Luther King day so that
was a fun surprise, and we got
some things done that needed
doing............so that is always
nice as well...
Have the house pretty much back to
normal, still need to clear a few things
off the dining room table and tweak
a little, you know how that is.....lol
Spent the day on the phone making
appts. for different things. Will be
signing up for medicare soon......guess
that will make me an official Senior
Citizen.....strange but I just don't see
myself that way....lol
Anybody else have that problem?
course, think it might be more of a
blessing than a problem......lol
Had to laugh the other day cause my
hubby was talking about some lady
and that she was elderly about 65
or so.........and I laughed to myself
and thought he could be describing
me..........ewwwwwww Not sure I
like the sound of that...lol
oh well, cause it is what it is!! lol
Thought you guys might like to
see what I was up to most of last
week.....since I was redecorating
our family room for Winter.
Bought some real potted white
Tulips at the grocery store so got
inspired to do a white, green and
gold theme. My typical colors
for this time of year are dark reds,
blues and greens. but for some
reason I am just tired of red all
of a sudden..........course, I will
probably like it again when it
gets closer to Valentines day. lol
So....on with the pics.
I plopped the pot of Tulips in this lovely
textured white planter that someone gave
me flowers in a few years ago, then used
a new cute lil cake plate hubby got me for
Christmas, and a plant sprtizer I rec'd from
a dear friend a few years back.
Added some pine greenery and my
favorite star ornament
and some pine cones too.
and a lovely colored pencil affect picture,
just for fun.
Love my new cake plate, it's so cute,
I have gotten a thing for cake plates
since I have been blogging...........
and I know some of you have too! lol
and I have gotten a thing for Chip
and Joanna Gaines as well, and
I know some of you have too.....
Cause how could you not love
Hubby and I are just about done
reading their new book (another
Christmas gift, this time from my
daughter) It is a Very easy and
I call Joanna my new best friend
cause I think we might get along
just spendidly if I knew her in
Here is the before look of my Tulips,
the day after I brought them home.
They were straight up when I brought
them home. Tulips are just fun flowers,
and are quite rebellious, they do just
as they please...............
As you can see here....
Here they are at 9 days old, so think
I will be replacing them with some
faux hydrangeas soon..........lol
but sure have enjoyed them.....
Rebellious or not............
Now on to the sofa table......
I always mix in a bit of brass
with my decor in the winter
I have really enjoyed using these
burlap runners on my table tops for
awhile now as they do cut back a
lil of the oak look.....
Always really enjoy this Joy sign
my friend Becky gave me and
these large spheres and potpourri
that my daughter gave me some
years back, they have both been
all over the house, as well as that
topiary picture, my fun dollar
store find a few years back.
I will let you in on a lil secret.....
Those books are there because
there is a gouge in the wall,
and I don't have paint to match,
so this was a quick way to
hide the bad and the ugly....lol
As the saying goes necessity is
the mother of invention.......lol
This striped looking pitcher
was a HomeGoods find on
one of our trips to Asheville.
Love white pitchers and
creamer and now plate
With Paint daubs affect.
Glad you could come over for
a visit..........thanks for coming
and hope you enjoyed yourself.
Have a really lovely week!
See ya Thursday......
See ya Thursday......
Love, Hugs and
Serene Winter Blessings,
