Prelude to Spring 2022

Hi Friends,

Please join me in praying for the people of Ukraine.  I found it a bit hard to write about JOY as my heart is heavy for these people but we must keep the JOY of the Lord in our hearts.   I have been consumed with the horror of the war there.  I pray for the Ukrainian people and their unbreakable spirit.

Bob and I just spent three weeks in Florida, Savannah, and Amelia Island.  Temperatures were in the mid 70’s and low 80’s.  It was a wonderful relaxing time.  Returning home, I could hardly wait to see the mountains.  My daffodils and helleborus were blooming when we arrived home.  Bob laughed at my excitement to see them blooming.  It was just a little prelude to Spring.  I love the blues this time of year so I got busy and redid my table and added blue and white to my normal decorating scheme.

I set a table for four using blue and white.  I have had these placemats forever but they were the perfect foundation for these aqua napkins and candlesticks and the deeper blue and white were a match with these bowls.

I made my way to Trader Joe’s for some spring blooms for a centerpiece.  My cherub holding the bird stayed on the table.  Can’t wait for birds to start their nesting.  I am going to have my own blooms very soon.  The tulips are appearing.

White roses, two  varieties  of lilies, a lot of filler and greenery arranged in my favorite vase finished the centerpiece.  Aqua candles in crystal holders finished the look.

White plates and salad plates and blue/white bowls from Pier I years ago.   

A spring wreath and salad bowl for my sideboard looks sweet with the table.

The swan represents simplicity, grace and beauty.

Thank you for your visit.
