Vignette Greeting

Hope you are having 
a great weekend!

Update to my post: I just found out I won an FTD Mother's Day floral arrangement from Debbie @ Debbiedoo's blog that I entered to win recently!  
I'm so thrilled!  As I told Debbie if I won I'd be sending 
these to my Mom for Mother's Day.  
She will be 90 this August!   
 Thank-you again Debbie, 
FTD and Better Homes and Gardens!

 My vignette on the half wall by the kitchen-
It greets us as we come in the back door! 
This is a new look for my half wall.

The two bottle candle are from 
Milkhouse Creamy 
and the top one is called "Barn Dance" 
Seemed to be a good fit!
I found my rooster in a closet. It
had been forgotten about so I 
resurrected it!  

 My tv is on an articulating arm and we swing it to see
it from the kitchen table or I turn it towards me when I'm 
cooking. I wish this counter was clutter free all the time, 
but it's a great landing spot for mail and everything else!

We will be working all weekend.  We 
rented a power washer to clean
our deck and garage floor.  We have to get 
ahead of the plants around the deck so
they aren't ruined with this activity.
All we need are a few warm days to get 
some staining done now!   

Tulips are blooming in Michigan!
 May is a beautiful time here!
The Lilacs and Crab Apples are
blooming too! 

 Hope your weekend is grand!
I'm joining Between Naps on the Porch

  3. Thank goodness some signs of Spring are showing! I know it's kind of a long wait for that in Michigan! We're already sweating our way through temps in the doggone upper 80s! It was already 87 degrees at 1:00 today!!!! I'm wilting! I love the vignette! The rooster looks really good there in front of those sunflowers. I am still totally enchanted with the milk bottle candles! Very pretty, and a nice sight to come home to!

  4. Very cute Liz! I love your rooster! Congratulation on winning the floral arrangement from Debbiedoos! :)

  5. Congrats on winning the flowers. Your rooster vignette is wonderful. I wonder how you almost forgot about that awesome rooster. I see your yard is shaping up nicely. It's supposed to be 90 here today.

  9. You are making me feel guilty. We have been so busy that we have not started on the spring cleaning outside! Maybe, if we wait long enough, it will be too hot!!! Love the vignette!
