Lemon and Lime Spring Tablescape

Hello and thank you so very much for joining me today as I share my Lemon and Lime Spring Tablescape. The focus for this tablescape is the centerpiece. As I thought about what Spring meant to me I knew immediately that I wanted my table to feel fresh; garden fresh, spring fresh and renewed. What better way to get that freshness than to take the table outside and incorporate living elements in the centerpiece. Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate has organized this fun and inspiring tablescape Blog Hop. Truly there is something for everyone and for every budget! I am so happy to be here with this group of creative artists. You will find all of the links at the end of this post for tons of Spring inspiration. The first step to creating my living centerpiece was a trip to the market. Of course I would love to be able to grow my own lemon and lime trees but North Texas is prone to some hard some freezes. I purchased lemons, limes, parsley, rosemary, and Mexican Tarragon to

Peeps and Petunias Easter Centerpiece

Good Tuesday Morning Dear Friends! How many more days do we have to wait for Spring ...not a single one! Say what... I know how excited we all are to kick off the Spring Season. How about we start this week with a Springtime tablescape bloghop and an easy DIY Peeps and Petunias Easter Centerpiece. Incorporating colorful Peeps Candy into our Spring and Easter Décor is a fun and an economical way to add a touch of whimsy. Using Peeps in Easter décor isn't anything new. In fact I made a Peeps Easter Centerpiece a few years ago. But just for fun for 2018 I put a new spin on it by using some different vessels and a new product that I stumbled across at the craft store. This fun and colorful product is Bunny Batts Funfill and I love it! (No advertising here, I just wanted to share this easy to work with fiberfill.) It's not messy and I think a really great alternative to Easter grass, plus it's reusable too and can be used for other Spring projects. I

Wispy Willow Flower Farm

Hello dear readers! Well I just made my annual pilgrimage to visit the Arboretum for the annual Dallas Blooms with my neighbor Stacey and as always I left feeling very inspired. I simply cannot resist sharing some of these blooming exhibits with you, the fragrance and merriment of the surroundings further ignited my dream of a owning and operating a flower farm with a crafting shed on site. I am seriously thinking of naming the Farm- Wispy Willow Flower Farm and I would love some input from you. Wondering if you would stop by the Wispy Willow Flower Farm; a farm that served up gorgeous blooms and delicious homemade pie? Would you sit under a wispy willow tree and watch a cloud float by? I dream...of a flower farm where everyone is welcome and everyone welcomes one another. This farm will be an environment of learning, and discovering an appreciate for nature and creating. Where butterflies flutter and bees are busy making honey. Join me for a moment on my dream a

Sweet Spring Rose Wreath

I am feeling like we could all use some flowers in our life right about now. Seems like March is that in-between month of Spring and Winter, and it never can make up it's mind what season it wants to be. So I figured it couldn't hurt any to add a little flower power pickup to our lives. Today I am sharing this easy to make sweet Spring Rose Wreath. So many of the craft stores are brimming with various shades of pink this year. Pink just seems to go with everything! Gingham is back and I am thrilled! Do you think we can wear a gingham dress this year? I am one messy crafter. I try to be neat and follow the crafting rules for orderly conduct. But I fail, but I do have fun! I always play with the wreath for an hour or so before I actually fasten everything on permanently. I have also found that taking a few photos with my phone or a camera helps me to get a clear viewpoint of how the finished product is really going to look. Much easier to remove lopsid

I think I should reword this and say how about saving money while decorating your table! Don't you just love decorating even more when you find a super sweet deal!

You will find all of the links to this fantastic group of creative thinkers at the end of this post and trust me you will not want to miss one of them! This months challenge was finding décor in our home that we actually use, that is actually around ten bucks. Whew, initially I drew a blank. Just as I was about to throw the sponge in I rediscovered this darling vintage Farmhouse Tablecloth in my antique hutch. Now dear readers this tablecloth is the real deal. This vintage Farmhouse floral tablecloth is the original farmhouse décor from my f
