LOVING THE LITTLE THINGS

Often I do not have a big project to share so I 
thought that from time to time I would just show 
you some of my favorite things around the house.


Little things can give me just as much enjoyment as the bigger items.
Some flowers, a new pillow, or just rearranging things can make me happy.
I've always felt that it really is the special little touches that make a home.
♡  ♡  ♡
Here are a few of the things that I am loving right now.



 { i found 2 of these pillows on ebay ~ I have always loved this Waverly fabric }


{ i know Easter is over but I just couldn't put away the blue eggs yet }


I must say, my most favorite thing right now is seeing the
flowering trees and the green grass through my kitchen window.

Isn't it a good feeling to see the arrival of Spring?

Thank you so much for visiting!

PAINTED PLASTIC EASTER EGGS

A couple years ago I painted some designs on
 green and blue plastic easter eggs.


This year I simply put them in a basket
with some crinkled Easter grass for a 
simple display ~ easy peasy.


I think it looks kind of cute sitting on my blue wooden crate.


WISHING YOU ALL A HAPPY AND BLESSED EASTER!

QUICK AND EASY SPRING CENTERPIECE

I put together a quick and easy spring centerpiece for our table.


I used a basket, a few flowers and greenery, some spring colored
 kitchen towels, and a moss covered bunny.
All things I had around the house.


I really like grouping things in baskets and I love the texture that it adds.


My bunny sheds little green pieces all over the place
but I love him anyway.
He's a keeper.

I HOPE YOU HAVE A WARM AND SUNNY DAY!

       A PLACE WE CALL HOME

I have travelled all over the world

Been to the world’s most famous places


seen the Victoria Fall’s falling waters

Have left tracks on the well known deserts

But there is one favorite place among all

A place where love has always been there for me

That’s a place we all call home

No matter how far I can go ,I wont forget it

Even though sometimes we are having little at home ,

I will not depart from home , its my favorite place

No matter how much luxury I have found out there ,

It can never be compared to this beautiful place

Home holds many memories for me

I can look back and see those best days I had at home

So full of love , so full of laughter

And I can look back again and see those days

Where we had little to eat and less to wear but we still laughed joyfully

No place can be compared with home

I can find comfort all over the world

I can run as far as my feet can take me,

I can have all the beauties in the world

But they can never be compared to this beautiful place

This is the most wonderful place for me among all places

The place which I will never forget, a place where everything is there

The place that gives me comfort and relaxation

That’s a place we all call home, home sweet home.
