Where Did The Flowers Go?

Hello Dear Readers!

A while ago, when I did a Monday Morning Blooms post,

someone asked what I do with the flowers when I do a “floral vignette”

using several vases and containers of flowers in one setting.

Today, I shall show you what I did with the many flowers and vases that I

presented in the Citrus and Flowers post.

Citrus and Flowers – Monday Morning Blooms

Hello Dear Readers!

It’s been a while (again).  Things are moving and shaking around here with many

decisions to make with regard to the new house. Valentine’s Day was momentous in many ways.

will be sharing some great floral inspiration.

Today’s common theme is Citrus and Flowers.

So sit back and enjoy some great floral inspiration!!

Great Room Reveal Sneak Peeks

Hello Dear Readers!

I have been a little M.I.A. since the Monday Morning Blooms Valentine’s Day post.

We left last week for sunny Florida (with a little bit of rain)

as my hubby and the Boys of Summer had a tournament.

A Tournament of Champions and they won.

Now back home after being away for 6 days, I am trying to do some major catch up.

Today, in-between laundry and numerous other things, I took some quick photos to bring you the …..

I created this Valentine’s Day table to reflect both of our likes

and when it all came together, he gave it the thumbs up.

The Winter Great Room

Hello Dear Readers!

I hope you are not in the BRRRRR zone of the country. It is cold here and we may get some

snowflakes, but right now, it looks like only freezing rain is in the forecast.

In a couple of weeks the Great Room will undergo a huge change.

So I thought, I need to show you what is in the room now,  before the transition begins.

I have been reaching into my stash to bring out some winter ambience

with pillows and accessories. There are only two small items that I found at my . . . .

you guessed it . . . . my fav consignment shop (Always Home).

Winter Master Bedroom

Hello Dear Readers!

As soon as the Christmas trees came down, I fluffed the Great Room for Winter Decor,

doing the usual of changing out pillows on the chairs and sofa and transitioning

the mantel from Christmas to a mantel of Winter decor and adding accessories

that will create a cozy ambience for winter.

Being that we are currently in a rental home, a.k.a. The Berry Patch House,

I am careful  not to purchase new things, unless they fit the requirement of versatility

throughout the house and do I really need it!

So as far as pillows go, I reached into my stash and gathered pillows for cozy winter decor.

In the meantime, rather than putting away the “Christmas” pillows  from the Great Room,

I shuffled them to another room. Love how you can use pillows for more than one season

and in other rooms too!

So where did they land?

Winter Mantel Featuring A Magnolia Garland

Hello Dear Readers!

I hate to admit this but I am still de-Christmasfying the house.

I have two more trees to take down and then call it a day.

The first thing that was removed was the Christmas decor on the mantel.

That came down first as it was fast and easy to “dis-mantel”

The mantel is also the first area that was transitioned from Christmas to Winter.

I knew what I was going to do as I received something beautiful right before Christmas.

It was a gorgeous magnolia garland from the fine people of The Magnolia Company.

I won this garland through a giveaway campaign that they were offering on Instagram. Yay!

Due of time constraints, I could not use it in my Holiday decor;

however, this garland had dried/preserved so beautifully that is was perfect

for the Winter Mantel featuring a magnolia garland.

A Staging Area Turned Into a Pretty Display

Hello Dear Readers!

I am sure that many of you tuck away things to make room for Christmas decor as I do.

I had many  blue and white pieces throughout the house and I kept placing those

pieces that have been displaced in one area.

That area was a demilune table that is in a little hallway that leads to the master bedroom.

As the Christmas decor was being put away, I went to that hallway area

to retrieve some blue and white pieces. But then as I gazed upon all the pretties

on the table and also underneath . . . I thought why not?!!

So a staging area turned into a pretty display of blue and white was born.
