A Little of This, A Little of That

Since the rain won't seem to go away, I thought I'd take a few minutes and post what's been going on the last few weeks (and months) since my last post.  This is a hodge podge of pictures I thought I'd share, no theme to speak of, just a little of this and a little of that.

The first picture is of the spring wreath I made for the front door.  It's mostly pink, and I guess the neighbors might think I'm wishing for a baby girl, but I liked the colors.

My children came home for Easter, and we had dinner in the dining room.  I used a garden bunny in the centerpiece, with pink tulips on each side.
It was nice having just the four of us, and we certainly had a lovely time being together!
For teacher appreciation week, I helped my cousin do the tables for a teacher luncheon.  We used decorated mason jars with cut flowers from the yard, big pieces of chalk tied with twine, and apples as our centerpieces.  Simple, but cute!

When the flowers finally bloomed for spring, they were magnificent.

We opened the pool and set the tents up.
Flowers were planted in all the pots.
Now we are ready to enjoy the outside, if the weather will cooperate!
Instead of going out to a restaurant for our anniversary as we usually do, we decided to go to our lake where we cooked dinner outside, and enjoyed the view.  Nothing fancy on the table--but with this view it wasn't needed.

Our dinner consisted of salad with fruit, walnuts, and feta with strawberry blush vinaigrette, fillets, roasted squash and zucchini, and sauteed mushrooms with onions.  We enjoyed being outside and cooking together.

Thanks for stopping by!  Come back and visit soon!


  1. Well, belated happy anniversary. Always happy to see a post. I have been so negligent with my blog. Hate to give it up, though. Love the peonies.

    1. Thank you, Barbara! I know what you mean, I feel the same way! Thanks for visiting!!

  2. I love your blog. But I have a question. Do you line your silver dishes before using them? If so what do you line them with. Thank you.

    1. Hi! No, I don't line my silver. I do store it in silver bags, or heavy plastic with tissue paper and that seems to help keep it from tarnishing so much. I try to keep it polished and I always wash It before using. Thanks for visiting!!

  3. I thought I had commented before but I guess I messed up! Happy belated Anniversary Wishes. I love your back patio area and your planters look great. Your Easter table was cute and so was the wreath. You've probably changed it already! I hope summer is going along nicely. Hard to believe 4th of July is nearing!

  4. How adorable is the table centerpiece in your teacher appreciation week picture! Love it

  5. Wow, I am totally in love with these beautiful pink flowers. I have also been looking to buy cheerful fresh flowers for decorations on my mom’s birthday. I don’t know any inexpensive Flower Delivery online service. Could anyone suggest that?
