I am sitting here fighting the urge to turn on the air-conditioner, it is too warm in my house...but, it is still technically winter! I love it! As we move from the high 70's into the 80's tomorrow, my husband plans to mow the grass tonight and I want to pull the patio furniture out of storage. Won't it be shocking if we get another big snow or ice storm.
One thing the nice weather has done is to kick me into cleaning and organizing. What started as a simple jewelry box project, turned into cleaning out all of my jewelry, my dresser and my closet. It ended with a trip to Goodwill, it also took 4 days! Yesterday I moved to the kitchen and I think I'll just keep it up while I'm in the mood. I know this energy level won't last long, so I have to make the most of it. I will say that I've discovered Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day products and they make my house smell so good that I almost don't mind cleaning!
We made a trip on Saturday to Arthur, IL in the heart of Amish country. We love to go to a little store there that carries Amish made food items of all kinds. They have the best supply of sanding sugar and decorations for very reasonable prices. When I got home, I decided they were just too pretty to put away. So, a quick trip to Dollar Tree for these cute little jars and I have a springy vignette on the kitchen counter.
The "cupcake" was actually a placecard holder from one of the little shops. I pulled out the wire holder and I perched it on a small silver compote.
I also wanted to share the vignette on the library table. I started with this beautiful print that was a gift from a wonderful blog friend, Kat @ Low Tide High Style. The lighting doesn't do it justice. If you haven't seen her artwork, make sure you visit her. She is a wonderful photographer. I have always loved this piece of hers and the soft seafoam color is perfect at my house. I had an orb the same color and it now sits under a cloche.
The coffee table has bits of spring and Easter.
I think most things look better under glass, don't you?
