Beautiful New Dishes & a Snow Day




Hello everyone,

A couple of days ago I lucked in
to some beautiful new china at the
thrift store and I couldn't resist them.
I think they will look pretty for our
Easter table this year.
It is a set of eight except only
four teacups but I am sure I
can mix and match again.

They are hand painted in England.

It may be spring but we had a blizzard here
last night shutting down most of the Island
last night and most of the day.

You can see we had a good blast of winter above
and below. I am hoping that is the last storm and some mild temps.
will get melt it all soon.
                                                                         
    In the mean time our little ' Snow Princess' Lila

and I enjoyed a walk in the woods yesterday.




                                                               Lila and I enjoyed some one on one
                                                               time baking cookies,having tea and
                                                               a walk in the woods.
                                                     

                   Go ahead and enjoy a sugar cookie before
they are all gone!

        Looking forward to a fun time
          tonight with our grandchildren as
   our driveways are now open
again and the travelling is
good once again.

Thank you for visiting!

Colors of Spring




     Happy Spring!

            Winter is officially over and I am
                 happy to welcome spring and I think
you probably are too!
           Our springs here are a bit slow to
               arrive weatherwise but I am enjoying
             the longer evenings and the promise
             of spring blossoms and birds happily
                  building nests and singing away in the
garden.
                       For now, I am busy trying to get my spring
                    cleaning done and this year that involved
                  lots of painting as it was time to refresh
    and make some color changes.



     To welcome spring I gathered some
     pretty pastel photos from my stash.
I love pretty pastels in spring and
summer.

       So looking forward to our lilacs
blooming again.

These mauve/lilac colors speak
of spring to me.

Soft and pretty

                                                                      Touches of spring in the
                                                                       porch.
                                                                      Aqua is one of my favorite
                                                                       colors.
                                                                             Romantic pink and white.
                                                                    Blue and white is always
                                                                    fresh and clean.
                                                                           Some beautiful spring bouquets.
                                                                           I am looking forward to that first spring
                                                                           bouquet from our garden.
            Bright and cheery daffodils.

                                                         Spring in Charleston a few
                                                                    years ago.
                                                                   
                                                                    It is our March break from school
                                                                    so I am planning on a fun day with
                                                                    our younger grandchildren here
                                                                    on Thursday. I wonder if they are
                                                                    good with a paintbrush! Ha!
                                                                   

                                                                    Wishing you a happy spring!
