February Blues


 Hello everyone!  I'd like to say that it's a blissfully pretty day out there and that 
there are signs of spring but alas this is not my case!
So I dreamed of blue skies and sunshine!

My blue sky is this tablecoth.
 I got from Williams Sonoma around 2 years ago.  
It has a nice weight to it and I love the colors.

The flowers represent the sun!  
I had to use faux flowers since the weather outside was not exactly a run to the store day!


 These Adelaide Blue 222 Fifth plates are so pretty.  
I can hardly wait for spring!


 These fleur de lis plates came from One King's Lane several years ago. They don't have any identification on them.

 As you can see in the background we have lots of snow!  

So there you have it my February Blues!

"BE MINE"

Won't you Be Mine!

 I thought I'd show my table in stages as I built it...


I came across these at Home Goods on mark down.  The starry dishes are by Sara Miller London, Portmeirion Celestial Collection.  The glittery gold chargers were part of a set of 4

The "Love" dishes came from Hobby Lobby.  I accented them with a chocolate heart!  The gold rimmed stemware were also from Home Goods.  I borrowed the center glass tray from  under my cloche nearby.  My theme quickly became gold and red!

Then I brought in my "Red Velvet" Amaryllis that I've been growing for the last month for my centerpiece.
I embellished the pot with moss, three hearts on sticks and a garland made of hearts.

 I had this pink rose accented pottery piece for some time.  Turns out it was just the right size for the amaryllis. 

Red Velvet amaryllis is a very large and truly red flower.  Here it is nearly all opened up.

 And now it's in full bloom!  Just as gorgeous as a red rose!

These are candles accented with heart graphics from Pier 1 with "Pink Champagne" as their scent.  The crystal candlesticks are also from Pier 1.

 The gold and white striped candles were part of a boxed set I picked up at TJMaxx a while back.

I was going for a bit of an elegant with a flair of whimsy!


Some nighttime photos!


Wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day!

A Picture of Pitchers!

 Since it's all white outside I decided to create an all white vignette!

 The center pitcher is a Juliska that I ran across marked down to half off.  I couldn't believe my luck!  The pitcher on the left was just a T.J.Maxx find and the pitcher on the right was from my mother's collection.

 I added a creamer and sugar container that have a similar beading design on them as the pitcher.  The galvanized cake platter is from Hobby Lobby and the galvanized tray was from a gift store in Pennsylvania a couple of years back.

 This pitcher was staged on a candle holder with one of my mother's lace doilies. I'm pretty sure I got that pitcher from Hobby Lobby.  The candle holder was from Pottery Barn several years ago and has a nice vintage look to it.

 I added a few more of my mother's lace doilies.

 Cute little butterfly doily.  She often put these out as a coaster on the glass tops of her tables.

 I have a few of these star like doilies that were hers too. 

 My mom had a collection of pitchers but this was the only plain white one.

 It's older and the glaze has crackled a bit too but to me that adds character! 

 I placed a couple of faux ferns in a clay pot.  This is another candle holder from Pottery Barn like the other with a vintage look.

So that's my Picture of Pitchers!

I'd like to give a shoutout to Linda (Life and Linda) for remaking my header on my blog.  We collaborated together and I love how she put together my ideas and hers (mostly hers)!

Santos Cage Doll and Amaryllis

Hello!  This is my first post this year.  It seemed to take me longer to get Christmas put away and getting things back to normal, plus we caught that cold that everyone seems to be catching which took a while to get over.  Anyway....

I've had my Santos Cage Doll for many years, she's a re-production doll.  She has been moved around the house a lot and I decided to give her a more prominent spot.  This Santos Doll has removable wings and if you want to read a brief history on them you can do so "here".

 I was looking for something to fill her cage and I finally decided to do it with some deco balls.  They were a bit big to get through the cage area so I was able to unscrew the top of one on the back slats, slid it over and put the deco balls in.  

 I don't remember if I showed you my little dog before.  Currently she is carrying a basket full of ferns.  I thought a pop of greenery was due!  I've been using the stand that the Santos Doll is on for  Christmas displaying but got to thinking why not keep it around.  Then it came to me to put the Santos Doll on it.  

A little unconventional design but I like it!

 I picked up some Amaryllis bulbs at Home Depot after Christmas.  They looked like good healthy bulbs and so I potted them up and this one has three stems.  It's still opening up and I'll enjoy their blooms for a while longer.



 The sun was shining in on them so I captured a few shots.
This is called Red Velvet.  It's a pretty common one and it sure does impress!  

My Thanksgiving Cactus decided to put off a few more flowers too!

So that's my current status!
