Guess Who’s Coming For Brunch

At the Haven Conference you get to see and meet so many wonderful people, 

wonderful bloggers who over the years have become great friends.

For some time I wanted to have some fellow local bloggers over

and there was some discussion of this during the conference.

Then a sweet, talented blogger moved to our area.

So, how do you welcome her? Have a gathering.

Spring Dishes in the Hutch {Noritake Summer Estate}

I am still on my quest to “Springify” by house.

For years, I had my “Old Country Roses” china in the hutch or “Welsh cupboard”

I had acquired this beautiful set of Noritake Summer Estate from my friend . .

~ ~ and recently just acquired some accent pieces to this set.

Vintage sherbet glasses filled with pears . .

Added more vintage pieces like this Depression Glass Salt and Pepper set.

An English Biscuit Jar . .

Trader Joe’s was selling mini pots of flowers…

~ ~ fit perfectly in the creamer!

More cheery flowers in another silver creamer/pitcher. . .

And in a vase made from a silver fork …

Or in the sugar bowl…

This silver set seems to appear in many rooms of the house . . .

My silver trophy bowl holds placemats for easy access along with candles . .

Spring themed creamer and sugar . .

Vignette on top of the hutch…

~ ~ a recent addition is the centuries old vinegar jar from France.

My hutch ready for Spring…now on to another room!!

Have a wonderful day!!!

I am joining:

A Stroll Thru Life for Inspire Me Tuesday

Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphosis Monday

Spring Fever Decorating

I am working on literally every room in this house . . .

~ ~ to freshen up for Spring.

I find myself moving MORE things around.

I move from room to room and not completing an entire room . .

~ ~ is that what they call “attention deficit decorating” ???

So I snapped some pictures of some things I have been working on . .

Changing the items in the hutch . . .

Gathering items for the “new look”

My friend and neighbor Mary changed her decor from French Country . . .

~ ~ to Tuscan style and also changed her dishes accordingly

~ ~ ~ and I was the benefactor of her gorgeous dishes of Noritake Summer Estate.

Creating a new vignette in the kitchen . . .

Styling the bookcases in the great room . .

And with the help of Linda, Kristen’s mom, I am making over the sunroom too!

So here are some sneak peeks of some of the rooms I have been working on . . .

~ ~ and trying to correct my “attention deficit decorating” issue.

AND….I just recently solved my Instagram problems . .

~ ~ I have actually had Instagram for several years.

So you can now follow me here on Instagram . .

Have a wonderful day!!
