Spring Green…….

PicMonkey Collage spring

Well, another day – another snow fall – Is Spring ever going to come? I am determined to see color, so today I set the table with Spring in mind.

I started my morning with my latest copy of Cottage Journal….one of my favorite magazines of all time! The colors on the cover made me feel hopeful that my tulips and daffodils will be coming up soon. The Forsythia looks good, I checked it yesterday….So please spring come up the mountain!
So my table consists of my “Go to” black square plates, my new apple green salad plates and my DIY polka dot desert plates…you can see here how I made them…have two more sets of dishes that I will be turning into designer plates to match my tablecloth for Easter.

Of course I found my “Faux-Fresh” tulips……remember don’t shy away from using the faux flowers…..especially now when all that you can see is snow-white outside.  I have a huge box that holds all my “Faux’s”.  Whenever I need some color that’s where I head.  I have purchased from Michaels, HomeGoods, Joanne’s and even WalMart. With Spring, comes the “Big Yellow Tent” flower stands here in our area.  That’s when I buy fresh flowers and plants, then plant them after they are finished blooming. And please don’t feel that you have to buy expensive silk florals, don’t try to mimic real to the point where they cost more! Your home should represent you when someone walks in, not what’s in “Vogue”….My home is a classic Georgian colonial. Inside is a mix of Traditional, Country and a bit of contemporary. I won’t walk away from something that I love just because it doesn’t go with my Cherry furniture or my brass Chandy…The day my home becomes a showroom is the day I start charging admission! Until then, come on in, put your feet up and let’s laugh! If my home is never filled with anything else – Let it be filled with laughter & good friends…
