Country Curtains - tour

Nothing cheers me up or brightens my day better than a walk through my local Country Curtains Store. The days here have been so cold and dreary, I thought I would just take a ride and browse through the store. The clerk was very kind and said I could take some pictures to share with you. If you don't have a store near you, you can check them out at . They are full of beautiful displays and inspiration. I hope you enjoy...

I love the bright blue, the warm reds and I adore the pale yellow walls!
What is your favorite?

cloche party

Joining Marty for her cloche party.
I don't have much really, trying to get ready for spring.
 It's hard with all this snow!
I just put a couple of eggs in this one
I made this one out of a candle holder turned upside down
 and I put a finial on top with some ribbon
very small one I made, need to change it up
and this jar I had filled for valentine's day

More Home & Garden Show....

Here are some more pictures of the Home and Garden show. I'll have to say I wasn't impressed with the inspiration homes - they looked like someone just put the furniture in and hung up pictures - so that's why I didn't take any pictures of the homes. No decorating ideas at a Home and Garden Show - how dissapointing. I did enjoy the outdoor furniture arrangements - I hope you do too...

great way to display indoor plants outside!

love the bunny picture - too high priced for me

lambs inside a glass cage with candle

Look closely at all the little fairies! They are black metal silhouettes of fairies - cute idea!

Home and Garden Show....

Well it's taken me about ten days and some antibiotics to start feeling better. Hope everyone is having a loving Valentine's Day! I was able to go to the local Home & Garden Show here Saturday and I took lots of pictures. It's always nice to see some spring flowers when the weather outside is cold and gloomy.
Here are some of the beautiful garden displays...
the pink tulips "pop" next to white

I never think to put red and pink together

I love hydrangeas!

an eye catcher

I had to take a picture of this, so simple but unique

add height with bamboo

St Francis - beautiful!
There were many beautiful statues and works of art.
 How I'm looking forward to spring, sigh.
 If it would just stop snowing!
I have more pictures to share with you next time.

Sick household....

First, my youngest was sick. I took him in and he has a sinus infection.  Then my middle child gets the same thing, back to the Dr. He has a sinus and ear infection. Luckily, my oldest rarely gets sick. But I wasn't so lucky. Started with a fever and chills and now I think I have a sinus infection. Mom's don't run to the Dr. so quickly though. Don't feel like doing much of anything. Back when I feel better.
