French Rolling Pin and Dough Bowl

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-DOUGH-BOWL-AND-ROLLING-PIN

Last weekend, I went to Atlanta to retrieve an auction item we'd won - garden tools. I bid on a French style bed and was outbid. Sigh. There will be one in my future! Since I was traveling so far, I thought I'd see if there were any sales in the nearby area. There was - an Estate liquidation. Most of what I saw pictured didn't appeal to me, … [Read more...]

Pretty Pillows

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-PRETTY-PILLOWS1

I just love pillows in decorating. Pillows add such beautiful interest to your decor - not to mention the comfort they add. Layering pillows. Earlier this year, I happened upon a fantastic sale on Euro pillows - 60% off! I initially thought they'd be great for the couch - but then decided to use them on our bed. Euro Pillows make a … [Read more...]

Make Decor Stand out in Bread Dough Bowl

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-SPRING-BREAD-DOUGH-DECOR

How I did it. I just love the Bread Dough Bowl I purchased last autumn at The Country Living Fair. It's Huge I think it could be called a Bread Trough. I could bathe my Dachshund in it! It's Deep  When I decorated the Bread Dough Bowl with pumpkins in the autumn, that was easy - they were just the right size. I shopped for … [Read more...]

Blue vases, Forsythia and Lemons

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-FORSYTHIA-BLUE-VASES-DEMIJOHN-7

I had a wonderful full day shopping last week. Living in the country, and with my schedule - I combine errands because most things are at least 30 minutes away. This is both good and bad. This is one part of country living that I like. The slower pace, the quiet - save for the chorus of birds every day. As well as making shopping day an … [Read more...]

Jubilant Green

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-JUBLIANT-GREEN6

Spring Porch Decor I should be painting the door and the awning. But I was so delighted in the bright green burlap ribbon and the 'Jubilant Green' acryllic paint I used to paint the letter "R"; I had to take a quick break from cleaning and gardening. Spring's fresh green is reflected in the beautiful Viburnum. I just adore these flowers … [Read more...]

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-REDBUD-SPRING-VIGNETTE2

The Icy Wintry Weather has caused a lot of garden clean up. During the weekend, my neighbors gave Dearest a few branches from a broken Redbud tree - they thought I might like them. They were so right!  Redbuds are actually dark pink when unopened and become lighter when they open. The diminutive flower buds run along the stem in … [Read more...]
