Home and Garden Thursday



Home and Garden Thursday

March is finally here – and with the winds – there’s quite a flock of birds outside – it sounds like an aviary. With the breeze stirring the windchimes and the birds – it is quite a musical morning.

March is National Craft Month and I am tackling a lot of crafts I have had on my list for quite some time and on some crafts that have inspired me through bloggers or Pinterest.

Easter Egg Wreath 2

I was inspired by  Trish’s Robin’s Egg Blue Easter Egg Wreath on Uncommon Designs. I kept the colors of the eggs as they were – with our dark grey house I thought the colors would stand out beautifully.


Simple Floral Display 10

I found a bag full of sweet little bottles and having seen an example of three vintage bottles grouped together in a OneKingsLane ad, I knew these sweet little bottles would serve as lovely suspended vases. Love how the sun broke through and shone through our bathroom window to sparkle onto the flowers


Library Red Teacup 4Do you visit your local library – I shared how here in Georgia through our Pines system I can select, place on hold books that may not be available in my library. I also shared how you too can search for books that may interest you in Interior Decoration, Gardening, Cooking, Tablescaping (yes! there are quite a number of books on that subject) and more!


Slipcovers2A project that I had been putting off for quite some time was making slipcovers for two chairs in our Master Bedroom. I viewed and followed the directions given by Marian, Miss Mustard Seed, in her 6-part chair slipcover tutorial. If I can do it, you can too!


Ramsign GiveawayThe good folks at Ramsign have given me the opportunity to host a giveaway of their marvelous signs – You can enter here.

Here are the featured posts from last week’s party:

pennywiseirelandjarphot0During the month of March we are all Irish, at least for a day. Christina at Penny Wise shared with us this adorable idea of creating Ireland in a Jar – a lovely way to take in the beauty of this gorgeous country as a keepsake – she made amazing cards to attach – with the appropriate Irish blessing!


TheDedicated HouseKathryn at The Dedicated House took these lovely Goodwill finds and created her version of  ‘Anduse’ using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint – they’re gorgeous!


The Cozy Little KitchenDon’t these look scrumptious! Leslie at The Cozy Little Kitchen recreated this wonderful french toast called, ‘Marmalade and Marscapone French Toast’ that she and her husband tried at a local cafe – this looks amazing. I’m a great french toast fan too, cahn’t wait to try this!


Bella's Rose CottageWith one foot in winter and one foot in spring, Bella at Bella’s Rose Cottage beautifully sets a in inspired tablescape featuring gorgeous black Transferware, pussywillows and roses –
