What’s next?

Whenever I start to put the decorations away after a holiday my hubby always asks,” What’s next?”

Funny thing is that this time the question came from my sister, Jeanne. My hubby didn’t say a word.

It’s sort of a garden theme, I replied.

If Mother Nature is going to be so slow to bring the garden to me, I guess I’m going to have to bring it to myself.


My poppy plants out back are getting so large.  I can’t wait until they bloom!


Keeping the table décor pretty simple for a change.  Giving my family a break.  Usually it’s pretty busy and takes a while to clear it whenever we need table space.



I LOVE my nest and bloom pillows!


Mantles pretty simple also.  What’s wrong with me?  I must be sick, have I got a fever?



I’m such a sucker for dishes!  Poppies!!




The days that it’s too chilly to work outside the bowls and apron are ready for me to whip up something sweet.


Kitchen windowsill. I made the herb alphabet sampler years ago.  My friend, Joyce gave me the pattern.  Still one of my favorites!

I shared a link on ‘It’s a very Cherry World’ be sure and check her out.  It’s obvious she loves cherries and red.  A girl after my own heart!

Such a great idea to bring the garden in, I'm tired of waiting for Mother Nature to get her act together. Your garden theme is very refreshing, bright and cheerful. It makes me feel hopeful that Spring will eventually get here, infact I saw a few signs of it today. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Those splashes of red here and there certainly brighten up your home!


The seeker of ruby and red
Will not let green go to her head;
Instead she will seek
Her senses to pique
With cherry and crimson instead.

It's all so pretty and fresh and springy! I'm starting to wonder if Mother Nature will ever, ever bring spring my way, so maybe I'll have to follow your lead and bring the outdoors in!
