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

It's been to long...

                            Good morning....some wonderful news....John and I are headed back to Ireland in June...its been five long years since our last trip...and I can hardly wait to get back...
                               back to the beauty that is all around you there ...to the people of Ireland ...
                         who are warm and friendly ...to John's family..I just adore them all...     
                                 and to the sea...where I feel more at home than anywhere else....
                                Oh I can hardly wait.........look out Bangor here I come!!!!  x0x0

The Heart & Soul of a Vignette....

                                 Sometimes it can be the smallest thing that inspires a new vignette...
                                  maybe some fresh flowers or an old photo...
                                          or a piece of coral from a far away place.....
                                       
                                    all sorts of little things that don't really belong together....
                                      yet somehow work to tell a story ...
                       and evoke a memory and maybe if your lucky warm you heart.....that's what a fresh vignette can do....if you let your heart create it !  x0x0

Keeping it fresh......





Good morning.......well I spent all day last Tuesday re-doing our bedroom, without spending a dime ...not an easy task !
Most of the day was spent cleaning if the truth be told....
it felt so good to rid of winter and welcome in spring...windows open...curtains blowing ...it was lovely!
took the time to make some "homemade" artwork....
and re-arrange the furniture word of advice..never paint "around" your bed( enough said ...)
a few new little vignettes and I was finished....I love that pillow cover (the white one below) it was a birthday gift from a very dear friend Tracey which makes it even more special to me!!
The last few mornings the birds have woken us up and if thats not a sign of spring I don't know what is!!!  So enjoy your day and thank you so much for coming by...I so love your visits! x0x0

Living with light......

                        Every time I walk into my kitchen I am amazed and in awe of the light.....
                            the way it bounces around the room....like a giddy child...
                                     making everything in its path look special....
                                          the way it affects the mood of all who enter....
                                and how my herbs just adore it....  
                                   how it makes everything look soft and romantic...
                                   no matter what the time of day...
                                oh yes.....dear sweet light your welcome always in my home....
                                      as are you my wonderful blogging friends.....
                                    I welcome you with open arms.......x0x0

Being a carpenters wife....

                                            Being a carpenter's wife isn't always easy.....
                                                sometimes you are forced to go to the store called "HOUSEWARMINGS"
                                      where he sells his furniture...like the table and the island you see here...
                                    then of course you have to look at all the other lovely things there....
                                            as you can imagine..it can be torture.....NOT !!!!
                                            Glad you tagged along on my little shopping trip,hope you liked seeing some of John's work....have a great weekend!! x0x0
