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.

How I Easily Added Pink To My Decor and the Giveaway Winner

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my farmhouse sink

 filled with a variety of pink flowers from Trader Joe’s.

That is how I easily added pink to my decor.  I added pink flowers 

to celebrate Valentine’s Day and to add a happy color to the rooms on these winter days.

My Antique Shopping Trip Finds {French Prints}

Last week, I traveled to D.C. with my hubby

and made an impromptu trip to Pennsylvania

to meet my friend Mary Alice for some shopping and lunch.

We did more talking than shopping,

but each of us managed to come out with some treasures.

The Great Room Christmas Tree

It takes me 2 full days to decorate the Great Room Christmas tree.

So many ornaments that I treasure to place on the tree.

The tree is a 9 foot Silverado Slim that I purchased

from Balsam Hill a couple of years ago. It replaced my 12 foot tree,

that truly got so cumbersome to decorate.

Always up and down a very tall ladder, so this 9 foot tree is easier to manage

not to mention taking up much less space.

A Sweet Treasure and the Winners

When I was in Maine antiquing with the lovely Linda (Lulu’s Musings),

I came across this sweet treasure.

Everything about it attracted me to it . . . the color, the pattern and the shape.

When we completed our rounds of the shop

I headed back to take a second look,  it truly called my name

and I had to take it home with me!

An Estate Sale Find – Master Bathroom

I love estate sales. Some are better than others

as far as finding a treasure or two, or more!

I found this little treasure a long time ago. I do not think I have shared this with you.

I placed it in the Guest Room Bathroom and the location of it was hard to photograph

so maybe that is why you may not have seen it.

Bramble Showroom ~ High Point 2016 Spring Market

When I know that my schedule will only allow for  one day to go to the High Point Spring Market,

Kristen and I head to the Bramble Showroom as soon as we arrive.

The Bramble furniture collection  offers a great variety of styles from classic to trendy,

or should I say, the updated classics.

It is a very warm, colorful and happy showroom. The staff is always pleasant

and willing to help and answer any questions.

Welcome to Bramble.

Love the arrangement with the mix of the magnolia leaves, hydrangeas and lemons.

Great horse too!
