Backyard Stroll

Hi All,
How are all of you doing?  It's been awhile since my last post.  Busy, busy!  Let's take a walk around the back yard.  Hope you enjoy...

Beautiful Day!

Hi All,
It is such a beautiful day in Illinois.  By the weekend the temps will hit 80!  My sweet "adopted sister" Susan, over at Ash Tree Cottage, inspired me this morning to post a little something for you all.  Life has gotten very busy, but here is a little spring post for you!  Please go over and visit my sweet Susan.  Her blog is delightful, just like her!

I added a little letter basket this year

The plants are coming alive

Hope you are all having a great day!

Hello!

Hi All,
Life has been very busy for me and to be honest, I really hadn't found much inspiration around the Cape house, lately.  Spring seems to be here, at least for a couple of days, yay!
Bunnies on the coffee table

The over sized cup and saucer are the same pattern of the china that Carole Lombard had for Clark Gable at their Encino ranch.  He loved his coffee out of these big cups!

Hope you all have a blessed Easter!

Home, Sweet, Florida Home

Hi All,
We are spending a few weeks in our Florida home.  I am always on the lookout for more things to cozy up our home.
My galley kitchen.  I'm on the hunt for more things for the top of the cabinets!

We had to replace the built in Oven/Microwave
Breakfast nook arrangement
I love my olden Jenn Air

Might be time to change up the chalkboard, lol

Love the art deco style sink in the downstairs bath.  New sink and light fixtures were added.
Towel cabinet in the downstairs bath nook, along with custom shutters

Another Christmas Gathering

Hi All,
I think this is the last of the Holiday parties.  I hosted my tennis girls, yesterday.  We were missing two of them, as they were under the weather.  We missed them :(  We all had a great time, tho.
I always serve the hors d' oeuvres in the den

Table is set for lunch

Love these girls!

I wish you all a happy and healthy 2015!

Fireplace Mantel

Hi All,
Hope you  all are enjoying the holidays.  Decorating the fireplace mantel has always been a tradition I have enjoyed over the years, here at the cape house.  I have been decorating our mantel for 30 yrs now.
New lighted garland was added this  year

I love the little knitted sweaters

And caps!

Mr. Reindeer is a new addition, too!

I love turning on the lights in the early morning and enjoying the Christmas glow
