Spring in the Kitchen

Spring in the Kitchen

Hello everyone!!!  It’s another beautiful spring day here in my part of the woods…….and…. while I was sound asleep last night……the grass must of grew at least 4 inches or more………really….when I woke up this morning……my yard look like it was totally out of control…….and the weeds decided to show up too….and…. they are taller than the grass…………The combination of a week of rain and the temperature now reaching  80 degrees…….it’s perfect for everything to grow……yes everything……the good, the bad and the ugly…….looks like it’s time to pull out “Chewy” and do some mowing……..yes, we are those kind of people who name their lawn mowers  🙂 You have to admit…..it’s a cute name of a mower……

Well let’s talk about what’s happening inside my house……wanted to share with you my little springtime vignette……..

2

I have it displayed in the kitchen………I bought this little bear a few years back at Stein Mart……

4

I just think he’s the cutest little thing….he even has his own tiny wicker basket full of Easter goodies……

7

I remember the day I bought him…….Stein Mart only had 2……I spotted him…..along with another lady…..we each grab one……we smiled at each other…..and said how unusually it was to find a bear holding an Easter basket……no problem finding rabbits with baskets but not bears…….we both decided we had to have him …just because he was different…….I’m so glad I purchased him…….he looks so adorable no matter where I place him…..

Spring, with all the soft pastel colors…..they have a way of brightening up your home…….really it does….Hope you bring a little Spring into your home……it will brighten your home and your day!

 Blessings

Long Face Jumeau “Springtime Beauty”

Long face Jumeau springtime beauty

Good morning …….. and what an incredible gorgeous morning it is!     It’s a beautiful day today in Texas…….The sun is shining without a cloud in the sky……and speaking of sky,.. it’s a deep blue…………rarely do we get to see the sky so clear…..but after all the rain we had last week…..it seems to have cleaned the air……the pond is over flowing….again…. the grass has turned green overnight….and the birds……are  singing their songs…….

Oh how I love this time of year!!…….

Today I’m sharing my Springtime Beauty …..and she is a beauty indeed….She’s my  “Long Face Jumeau”….. a French Antique Reproduction Doll…..isn’t she breathtaking……

You are never too old for dolls……..

Hope you have a blessed day!!!  Take some time to step outside and enjoy the day that the Lord has made…….and it was made just for YOU!

The winter is past and gone……the season of singing has come!

Hello everyone!!!!  If you haven’t figure it out yet…..I have this really soft spot for Bunnies!!!!  I just think they are the cutest, adorable and sweetest little critters around……It’s hard for me to pass one up when I’m out at the store…..Really….they seem to be smiling at me saying….take me home with you…..I feel like I’m in one of those Pier One commercials………  🙂

This sweet little furry came from Hobby Lobby many years ago….I just had to take a picture of him on the dining room buffet……because…..I’m sharing him with Mom this year……he’s headed to her house as part of her spring decor…....

4

His destination…….the entryway……on her console….as you come into the house…perfect spot for him……to greet everyone visiting….don’t you think?….

What makes this guy so special…..He’s covered with sparkled beads……some have fallen off over the years….but he still looks pretty good……One last photo before saying goodbye…….

Just FYI…..this is not the last posting about bunnies…..I think I still have a few here to put out……stay tuned…..

Have a Blessed day!

Fall with Bashful Betty

Well here I go again with the white pumpkins…..I just love them!!!!  and front and center with all those creamy jewels is Miss Bashful Betty……

2

Yes she’s showing off today…..She proudly stands in my rose garden right off the patio…..I have had her for many many years…..her little face is starting to show some age…..but I think it just adding more character to her….  🙂

3

She’s holding some fake leaves……(it’s still pretty warm here in Texas and the leaves are not starting to turn yet……so to get that fall look had to use fake ones…..)

Pretty Girl…..

One thing I like about these pumpkins……when fall is over…..I just store them in a plastic container in the attic until next year……I save my hubby lots of money by reusing my decor……at least that’s what I tell him  🙂

7

Lovely…don’t you think?……

Once the mums are finished blooming…..they will find a home in my front flower bed…..

Thanks for stopping by……

Have a Blessed day!
