Earth Day

According to Wikipedia “Earth Day is an annual event, celebrated on April 22, on which events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network and celebrated in more than 192 countries each year.”

  To commemorate Earth Day I am sharing some photos I made in Utah last year at the Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point.

French Postcards

French Lavender

 In March I purchased a charming French postcard booklet from Cat at Sunday Brocantes who opens her online shop once a month.  For the first two days of each month you can purchase lovely French goodies that Cat collects “brocanting” near her home, Rabbit Hill in Normandy France.  The postcard booklet is from Cote d’ Emeraude on […]

Radiant Orchid and a Simple Easter Mantel

Easter Bunnies

Typically, I’m not a person who uses violet tones in my home décor; however, Easter is an exception.  When I decided to use Pantone’s color of the year Radiant Orchid my thrift store stash came to mind.  I knew it held candidates for a good paint make-over. The stash yielded a wooden vase and a vintage wooden pedestal […]

Happy Spring 2014

Here is my Happy Spring wish for you and hopefully it’s better late than never. My grandson was on Spring break this past week so I’ve been […]

Succulents in Tea Cups

Blue Willow House Tea Cup

Succulents interest me in the various ways they grow, spread, and bloom.  I planted some in a blue enamel colander last summer and they grew and spread nicely.  I have been babying them all winter and so far so good.   The colander is moving back to the deck soon.  In the meantime, I planted three succulents in some pretty blue and […]

Spring Plants


Yesterday I had about an hour to spare before going to a meeting so I dropped into my local DIY home store to pick up a couple of things but what really caught my eye was all the beautiful plants.  I can’t wait to plant some pretty flowers but I’m afraid we still may have […]

Visual Comfort Lamps


As a lamp loving girl I am always on the lookout for beautiful lamps that fit my décor.  Strolling through Marshalls recently I saw two gorgeous blue and white gourd lamps.   Priced at $79.99 each they were a bit more than I like to pay for lamps but these lamps spoke to me.  So I wrote […]

TST – A Rustic Toolbox

Green Jars in Toolbox

A vintage homemade toolbox has been languishing around in my thrift store stash for a while.  It isn’t fancy but it is definitely due for a transformation.  Donna from Funky Junk Interiors is my inspiration to get going and upcycling this toolbox. First, I must answer the question “what am I going to do with it” when I’m finished with […]
