Creating my own spring....

I just heard the weather forecast....Winter storm watch. 5-8 inches of snow expected. What to do....I can go back to bed and eat comfort food til I burst or I can create my own spring in my house by putting together a flowering bulb mantel....This picture is from Martha She suggests pansies, crocus, Hyacinth. We will see, that left over Easter candy is calling me...

Hi Blog Buddies! Has everyone recovered from the weekend? I was so flattered to be featured on Rachel's blog....A Romantic Porch. Check it out! Rachel features some one's porch on her blog every few week's...I really can't wait until I can sit and watch the sun come up on a warm spring day! Have a good Tuesday!!!

Monday already?

Weekends fly by when you are busy...My sisters and I gave my niece to be a bridal shower on Sat. and I was asked to do the centerpieces...I painted some gift bags with polka dots and monogrammed their last initial on it in sage and brown(their wedding colors) ...very quick and simple. Addi was there with one pink shoe on most of the time and her sissy Karissa looked so sweet in her matching dress! Easter Sunday was spent at my sister's for brunch. A very nice day! I hope everyone enjoyed the day..

Here is another nook in my office that I just added...I covered these letters with scrapbook paper in blues and browns...I think they turned out ok. It brightened my office up a little. I can't believe it is Easter on Sunday! it sure doesn't feel like it around here...snow in the forecast and temps in the thirties! We will have to hide those eggs in the snow banks...Have a good Wed. everybuddie!

Monograms seem to be what's going on I jumped on that band wagon right away...I had our guest room pillow shams done at my local embroidery shop and I love them! I really changed this room out from cottagey and feminine to a more simple look. I even caught Addi admiring them! ya right...she was up to no good when I caught her climbing over the foot board of the bed...Have a good Tuesday!

A little retail therapy...

First I want to thank all of my blog buddies for their kind words and uplifting comments! You are the best! How did you know that was exactly what I needed to hear! I love Blog land..I do have to apologize for my last post...a new day and a little retail therapy helped. (plus a 1/2 bag of Dove chocolate eggs.)I know this can be dangerous,(to my hips and my pocketbook) but I stayed within my budget. I got this sweet bird and nest plaque at TJ Max, it is made out of a heavy plaster. Perfect hanging on my wall in my Tattered nest office/studio...Of course I had to pick up a new purse for spring and I also found the sweetest little nest full of eggs rubber you see a pattern here? Kinda obsessed with anything related to birds, nests, eggs, lately. So all in all it lifted my spirits a will be even better! My three sisters are taking me to lunch for a belated birthday celebration! My oldest sister ( retired) has been gone for a month to Mexico, so we waited for her to come home to celebrate...I am off to lunch toting my new purse. Have a nice Sunday!
