Easter Vignettes and A Short Break

Just wanted to let you know that I'll be taking a blogging break this week. 

There's just so much going on...too much actually.

My kids are on Spring Break, 
there's softball & baseball practices,
I've got to work Monday through Thursday, 
lots of cooking, baking and preparing for Easter,
dinner with a high school friend,
 and on top of all that, a trip to NYC!
All within the next 7 days.  

I did want to leave you with a little
something to look at though.  Who wants to read a
post of all the things a person has to do 
without a little something to look at?  

So, 
here's my coffee table vignette:




and the blue dresser vignette:



Take care everyone.
See you soon!

Spring/Easter Decorating

I wanted to share a little Spring/Easter decor today.

I feel like I am always sharing my dining room hutch with you.
I hope I'm not boring you with it.

Well, here goes anyway:

When You Can't Find It, Make It! (Bunny Pillow)

I don't know about you, 
but sometimes
make that all the time,
I struggle to find what I'm looking for.

No matter what it is that I'm wishing
to buy for this room or that room,
it's like looking for a needle in a haystack.

Take for instance, my desire to have
a Spring pillow for my sitting room sofa.
Yes, as simple as a Spring pillow.

I couldn't find a single one in the area!

How could that be, you ask?
I wish I knew the answer.  
It's a conspiracy, I tell you.

Sweet 16

Sometimes it amazes me how quickly time goes by. 

I can remember being in the hospital the day Olivia was born. 

Every nurse, 
every visitor, 
every person I encountered that day
 who was ever a parent gave these wise words:

  "Enjoy every minute with her because they grow too fast." 

 At that point, I was thinking, "Sure, sure, of course." 

 Well, I can now officially say that even though I may have thought 
I was enjoying every minute of her,
somehow, someway, 16 years have gone by in the blink of an eye.

I'm left, scratching my head, thinking,
"Why didn't anyone warn me this would happen?"

Ahh, but yes they did warn me.

And I don't think it matters one bit.
Time just moves too quickly regardless.


Happy 16th Birthday, Olivia!  

You are a ray of bright sunshine in our lives 
and we couldn't love you more!

And also, since you're kind of a genius,
can you figure out a way to slow time?
Thanks.

Spring Mantel 2014

I'm not going to complain.
No, I'm not going to say it. 
 I won't. 

I'm just going to share my SPRING Mantel with you. 
Emphasis on the word SPRING. 

If you've been reading here awhile, if you know
anything about me or where I live,
I think that alone should tell you what I'm not going to say today.


This mantel is a simple one.

Crossing It Off the List (Sitting Room Rug)

I know that I've shared my favorite room with you before.

It's the sitting room right off of our dining room that I love so much.

I always knew, however,
 that the area rug I had under the coffee table was too small.



See what I mean?  
TOO SMALL.

Spring Chalkboard, I think

I've been giving my home the Spring/Easter treatment. 
Thinking positively, thinking that maybe it'll help bring Spring along. 

You know what?

It worked! 

 Well...
for a couple of days anyway. 

Yesterday was the best day of all.
Yesterday, the temperature was 49 degrees and
 the sun shining brightly.
Yesterday, the snow was melting.
Yesterday was perfect.



Yesterday, the weather complimented my
dining room chalkboard and
all was right in the world.

As for today,
well....
I'd rather not talk about that.

Winter storm be damned!
