Spring in the sunroom....

                                 The sun was so bright yesterday morning I thought it was the perfect day to freshen up the sunroom for spring...the mantle was already tweeked so I just finished the rest...
                              found a wonderful ruffled blanket at Ikea.....
                                      and remembered I had this old shelf John made me years ago....
                                   of course I love my french pillows....
                                     and some candle light....
                                          a small pile of linen & my cross from Haiti...
                           its all the little things that make this my favorite room.....and all your visits that make blogging worth while.......thank you !  Till next time all the best, Chrissy

This is such a pretty room and the sun shining in makes it all the better. I love your ruffled blanket from Ikea...I have the same one!! I fell in love with it when we were there a few months ago. Isn't it fabulous?!!

Your mantel looks wonderful...love the touch of lavender. And thanks so much for stopping by, I love your visits!

Ooo...stacking the linen is something I haven't seen before, love that! I love those moments when the sun can be captured streaming through the windows. We haven't seen much of that around here lately. It all looks beautiful!

Oh how the sun makes these photos so much more inviting. I'm hoping to see it again one day. I do love the color gray, but not outside my window day after day after day.....

Enjoy your sunshine in your beautiful room:)
