~ around the house and a winner


While recently vacationing in Florida, I was so inspired by the green grass, blue sky, and colorful flowers. I couldn't wait to get home and restock my house with flowers and plants for Spring.

Except when scouting my go-to locations, back in Omaha, the selection was a major disappointment.. 

Seems like every once in a while, when I'm in the restocking mode for flowers and plants, there are none to be found...

So that post will have to wait until another day...

I did manage to pick up a couple tulip plants and some grocery store flowers here and there, but the selection was pitiful...

Definitely adds some life to the dining room :)



Most of the pots on the bottom shelf are in my shop for sale...

I also found a good ivy...

So instead of the planned post featuring flowers and plants, this post is more appropriately dubbed Around the House :)

Hopefully sparking some inspiration just the same.




My obsession with design books is showing!








Hope you are as happy as I am about April! Can you believe?

A sincere thanks to all for the great comments for the giveaway!

The winner of the PVE Design Personalized Monogram is...

I love being "around the house" with you! Absolutely beautiful. Alive with color, plants and great design. I'm not nearly as successful as you, but I DO share your obsession with design books :)

Always love seeing your shelf of majolica with the special star plates and other pretty ceramics.
