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.. […]

After starting with only a few plants ten years ago, passed along through PAM (Painter Artist Mom), […]

Sewing season for me is during times of extreme cold and extreme heat.  I had such plans!  Bedroom […]
