Tidbits of Spring in the Kitchen

Hope you all enjoyed your First Day of Spring yesterday.

I have been traveling and a bit in the vacation mode.

While my hubby holds down the fort, I will be visiting my mom while

my brother and sister-in-law are away, as she lives with them,

so my posts may be a bit sporadic the next couple of weeks

and will include some happenings with my mom.

Good thing she does not mind getting in front of the camera.

Today, I shall bring you some Tidbits of Spring in the Kitchen.

Easter Bunny Parade Tablescape and a Giveaway

Each year when I begin to decorate my home for Easter,

memories come flooding back of my childhood and the many songs that my parents would sing.

One in particular is a song that my mom loved,

“The Easter Parade” by the songwriter Irving Berlin.

“In your Easter Bonnet, with all the thrills upon it,

you’ll be the grandest lady in the Easter Parade.”

My mom loved it when Judy Garland sang it. I think I know every Judy Garland song there is!

Call me a sentimental sap!

So today, in honor of the Easter Parade song, I present you with

The Easter Bunny Parade Tablescape and a Giveaway!

See details for the Giveaway below.

how to make bunny ears out of napkins.

The Sunroom Refreshed for Spring

I have been refreshing  my rooms from Winter decor to Spring decor.

That is always a fun thing to do as we all love Spring.

I have already Refreshed the Great Room for Spring.

The Sunroom Refreshed for Spring was next on the list.

I had a couple of inspiration pieces to work with.

When I received my new issue of Country Living, it was a no brainer to

go back to HomeGoods and get those pillows that I have had my eye on

and hoping they were still there.

From the Consignment Shop to the House

A while back I presented one of my favorite consignments shops

that has wonderful things for all things home.

If you missed that post, you can see what I am referring to

as my favorite consignment shop.

I presented one of my finds there in this post of my sunroom

of a Chelsea House Chinoiserie table.

However, I found another piece there that I want to share with you today

and the items that my friend Sherri took home with her too!

A Simple Hydrangea Tablescape and More Gilding

I  had a busy week this past week.

So what did I accomplish?

A Simple Hydrangea Tablescape and More Gilding.

My busy week included getting prepared for cooking and baking

for my turn at our Dinner Group this past weekend

and gilding the lily again.

First, here is what I thought needed a little more glam to its appearance.
