Simple pleasures are more important than they may seem at first glance. Your little vignette is lovely and I can see how it would bring a smile to your face every time you pass it. Right now I have old jars and bottles filled with one tulip each sitting on the window sill in my kitchen...aaah. I love the simple life. Hugs, Cindy S

Morning Chrissy......one of the things I wanted to do today was use my ironstone tureen that I love, and fill it with shells......can I link back to this post when I do?

Oh, this makes me smile. I love the beautiful vignette you have created. This would be perfect to link to my Table Top Tuesday meme. It's not just for tables, but anywhere we can create a vignette. Yours is lovely. Hugs, Marty

I love having fresh herb in the house...smells so good and looks so pretty!

Chrissy, I will try to explain how you can link your blog to my Table Top Party and you would use the same instructions to link to any party. Click on your published post and when it comes up right click on your post title and then click on "copy shortcut". Then go to my TT post and you will find a thing at the bottom of my post called Mr. Linky. Click where it says you're next. A screen will come up and where it asked for the htms for your post right click and past your blog title into that space. On the top box it askes for your name. You can use your name and your blog name or what ever you want. Hit submit and you should be listed as the next number. That way others can find your blog and see your post. It's really easy. Hope this makes sense. Hugs, Marty

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Sorry, that should have read html, not htms. Hugs, Marty

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Ok, I am going to get this right yet. You want to paste your blog title where it asks for your URL. Gees, I have done this so many times it seems easy to me. Guess I don't really know what it says. Hope you understand these instructions. Hugs, Marty

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

I linked you up. This is so cute I thought others would want to see it. Hugs, Marty

Denise said...

Wonderful. Bet those herbs smell heavenly too.

June said...

Hi Chrissy!

Your photos are so amazing all the time. I swear you could have them published in Jeanne d'Arc Living and they'd fit right in.

LOVE those metal "tags"!! A lot!!! :)

Take care!!

Beautiful as always, Sea. I KNOW what you mean about passing through your home and smiling...our old home is like an old friend that has sheltered us through our lives. When I drive up here, I think, "What a cute little house!" and know that I am indeed blessed.

Oh Chrissy, you are so wonderful!!
I get so happy every time you pass by. I am very fine, busy days I have to admit, but I love the fact that it is spring. It cheers everyone up I think! And how are you these days? Are you also having fun times??

You are remarkable good in making beautiful displays. It seems like it comes with none effort to you. I love your images!

Have the best weekend, lots of hugs from me!!
