More often that not,
a trip to the grocery store can yield changes in a room.
That happened this weekend when trips to Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s
brought about changes in the Great Room.
Changes of more blue and white and a dash of pink!
My hubby and I make a bi-weekly trek to Whole Foods
to purchase grass-fed beef. I love beef and the grass-fed is somewhat of a healthier option.
When I entered the store, there they were . . . a beautiful display of hydrangeas.
A beautiful container of them hopped into the cart.
When I got home, I made a quick walk around the house and decided the ironstone foot bath
that was filled with winter greenery. can quickly change to the happy pinks
in honor of the upcoming Valentine’s Day.
I wrapped a grain sack around the rim of the ironstone foot bath
to add texture and hide the plastic flower pot.
Our next stop that day was Trader Joe’s.
They had a beautiful assortment of Spring flowers and plants.
I especially love Cyclamen during the winter months,
so in the cart they went.
I changed out the coffee table book to this one,
“The Welcoming Home” by Jane Schwab and Cindy Smith
and thought it appropriate to place some of my crystal pineapples on it.
I removed the plastic pots of the cyclamen
and placed the plants into a blue and white bowl.
Plants and flowers look so much nicer in great containers.
So began the gathering of items to change out the vignette on the table.
I gathered some preserved boxwood topiaries
that were throughout the house
and thought that they would be a great accompaniment to the bowl of cyclamen.
The breadboard remains as somewhat of a tray
to corral a mini vignette. I thought the vintage chippy corbel
looked great with the topiaries so it remained.
Now, I cannot leave Trader Joe’s without buying fresh cut flowers
and they have truly had some beautiful hydrangeas lately.
I love hydrangeas and so happy that I could enjoy them in the winter too!
I placed them in my Chinoiserie crock.
I posted on Instagram the other day
of how I got this blue and white ceramic pineapple frame.
I obtained it as my gift from my Bunco’s group of “wrap the crap”
dinner party that we always have after Christmas! I lucked out and got this beauty,
rather than used Christmas ribbon!
Flowers in my home make me happy every day,
especially in the winter when the flowers here are not in bloom outdoors.
Have a most beautiful day!
