~ tulips for spring

I've always loved tulips but recently I seem to have developed what you might call an obsession... They are the poster child for Spring.




Found the most beautiful tangerine begonia!

With white tulips and ivy...

Those tulips opened right up the next day.. they look like roses!



And this ranunculus was irresistible...

Have you ever?











Can't wait to show you the pansies and ranunculus outside... 

Coming up next!

~ pastels for spring

Has anyone noticed? Does anyone care? I've cut back on my post volume. In fact I've recently cut my previous four posts a week in half! In case anyone was worried, I haven't run out of post material, it seems I've run out of time. There just aren't enough hours in a day to get everything done. At any rate, I hope you don't mind.. in fact perhaps smaller doses are preferred! Regardless, I'm here for a while and my post frequency will pick back up when time allows...

Now, onto today's post!

Longing for Spring, I turn to Pinterest for inspiration...
These charming pastels certainly seem to help the situation...








and produced a few charming Springtime banners...





and a mosaic...




I'm obsessed... I know that.


Happy Easter if that's your thing...

~ paper lanterns

While preparing for the big weekend, September 26 - 29, when we will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Lauritzen Gardens Antique and Garden Show, I have fallen totally in love with paper lanterns...  Just look how they transform a space directly into party mode.































I want them for every future party I plan... 
Aren't they charming and festive and fun?
