Add Spring From Inside to Out

Spring Birds Vignette

I visited Shannon at Belle Bleu Interiors last week to see her easy spring vignette, her spring foyer, and her creative decorating idea.  Such lovely spring changes!  And, you’ll be tickled by the bunny in her foyer. Shannon inspired me to make some changes to my foyer table, which is my great-grandmother’s vintage sewing machine.. […]

Birds of a Feather Eat Together

Birds of a Feather Tablescape

Just like birds, we gather most often with those of like kind. I looked out our kitchen window one morning last week to see (it seemed) a hundred robins flying all around our yard between the house and barn.  They were landing, pecking, nibbling, and playing with one another.  Joyfully, excitedly, and almost frantically.  A […]

Set the Birds Free for a Spring Table Feast

Set the Birds Free for a Spring Table Feast

You’d think the yellow in my face for days while covering the porch cushions in sunflower yellow last week would have prevented a yellow tablescape.  Alas, no. The base cloth is an outdoor fabric I purchased to coordinate with the porch cushions.  In normal fashion, I used it for a tablescape before transforming it. Free […]

Birds Chillin’ Table for Two

Tin Bird

It’s way too hot outside, so we avoid eating on porches these days.  No more alfresco dining for us, at least until cooler weather arrives. You’ve seen this room a lot this week.  I decided this would be the perfect spot for our meal last night – before spreading pieces to that puzzle I mentioned […]

Summer’s End Birds? Nothing to Shake a Stick At!

Summer's End Bird Table

I’m joining Cuisine Kathleen’s Farewell to Summer table challenge today. Before preparing last week’s HOT! Summer Table in the Cool Shade, I set this table in the early morning (because I’m Amish an early riser who hates to sweat glisten).  When I downloaded the pictures, horrors!  Obviously, taking pictures in the shade of our house […]

Early Bird Tablescape

Early Birds

I couldn’t do it.  I just couldn’t mention worms in the title of a tablescape.  To be polite, I left out that part. I’m participating in Cuisine Kathleen’s Birds~Nests~Eggs Table challenge. Are you an early bird?  An early riser? I confess – I am.  I don’t like worms, so I’ll stick with watching birds get […]

Redbirds on the Farm Christmas Table

Christmas Lamb

The minute I read Susan’s post at Between Naps on the Porch, I knew where I was headed – Wal-Mart!  Susan displayed her “expensive” Christmas dishes, $2.98 each at Wal-Mart, so of course I had to check them out! There are four patterns to choose from, and I fell in love with the Redbirds.  At […]

Spring Table Remix

Dough Bowl Bird Nest

Yesterday morning I “de-Easter-fied” my decor.  I’m not the only one, am I? It’s Spring, and the eggs were so fun, and all the bunnies were a real kick.  The baskets needed to get out of the way, after all.  And, let’s talk about hiding the candy! In keeping with a Spring theme, I kept […]
