Home and Garden Thursday

These days seem to be passing by rather quickly! I hope you all are enjoying these first days of spring! I am so glad to have my daughter back from her trip! The day after her return, my eldest daughter went on a trip of her own. Our children surely know how to keep us on our knees praying!

Here’s what I shared with you last week:

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-REDBUD-SPRING-VIGNETTE-1I took a few Redbud branches and displayed them along with some of my favorite vintage dishes in a corner in our kitchen

hamilton beach winnerI would like to congratulate Diana Petrillo, Adirondack Girl at Heart, the winner of the Hamilton Beach Durathon Iron!

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-JUBLIANT-GREEN6I am in the process of finishing the paint work to the front of the house, but that didn’t stop me from decorating the front door – I was inspired by the bright green of the burlap ribbon and Jubliant Green acryllic paint – for the letter ‘R’.

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-FORSYTHIA-BLUE-VASES-DEMIJOHN-2I found these beautiful blue vases recently. The Forsythia and lemons are the perfect compliment to their brilliant color.

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-PINK-CAKE-FOR-DAUGHTERMy daughter, who just returned from her mission trip to Mexico, and I shared a lovely Spring Lunch outdoors – I made this Pink Lemonade Pound Cake in her honor.

March Spring Flowers CollageThe garden is looking wonderful this March. I’m doing some cleaning, but also enjoying all the marvelous blooms.

  1. Kathy I love seeing all your lovely spring flowers! If we’re lucky we might see an inch or two of green emerging from the ground where the spring bulbs grow…maybe. Often our daffodils are already blooming at the end of March. It’s been a long winter. It’s so good to see you enjoying spring already. And the pink lemonade cake looks amazing!!

    Best wishes for a joy-filled week!!

  2. Suzanne of Simply Suzannes at Home

  16. Bonjour ma chère kathy,
    Une belle ronde de fleurs…
    Le printemps semble s’installer et c’est pour mon plus grand bonheur. Cette saison est ma préférée. Les senteurs, la fragilité et la sensualité de la nature apportent un tel bien -être !
    Donc aujourd’hui je ne peux qu’être heureuse en admirant vos magnifiques photos.
    Gros bisous
