Home and Garden Thursday
I just love this time of the year – still in the midst of winter we’re seeing some beautiful posts on how you’re experiencing winter, great crafts, great recipes and so much more. This is also the time of the year we celebrate Love and Romance. I am thoroughly enjoying creating decorations for our home and enjoying each day with Dearest.
I made this pink wreath using Pistachio shells. The inspiration came from a back issue of Martha Stewart where she made a wreath from red dyed Pistachios – do you remember those?
I began the week by sharing with you a very Romantic Weekend Breakfast t I shared with Dearest.
I shared my thoughts on being a wife and mother and on ‘Being a Good Thing’.
The definition of Romance is closely linked to the notion of chivalry – I think it would be a marvelous thing to teach our young men to have nobly ‘knightly’ character.
In my retreat I set up a cozy, table for two – my Romantic Dinner for Two with Dearest.
I have two very large Rosemary bushes – they’re blooming profusely and I made a wreath out of the stems and an old wire hanger to place this Rosemary Heart Wreath in my kitchen.
These are the most viewed posts from last week’s party
Bernideen shared with us a gorgeous and delicious tablescape in honor of the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. I think the Bennett girls would approve! You can see the full post on Bernideen’s Teatime blog
Penny’s sunroom is gorgeous – I can see why they spend a lot of time in their sunroom. Love the changes – I’d love to visit and spend time at Penny’s Vintage Home
Judith at Lavender Cottage not only writes a charming blog, she also writes a column on gardening! I think it fantastic that she shared with us excerpts of one of her articles – a topic dear to my heart!
There’s something so elegant about white decor. Trudy at Decorating with White takes us through an amazing Victorian in San Francisco that had been restored and decorated all in white – exquisite.
