Blue and White

 Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful spring weather. I know I am and I'm trying to spend a good part of my time outside as the heat will soon be upon us. Yikes!

 It was time for me to redo my living room mantel for spring. If you are a regular reader of Bella Vista, you know I love mantels. They are my absolute favorite areas to decorate.

I love blue and white pieces but had stuck mine away for a bit. I decided to bring them back out and I am really enjoying them all over again. There is something so fresh about the colors of blue and white.

 I have a large collection of these pieces...some were pricey and others were only a few dollars. I mix them all up and truthfully, I have forgotten what I paid for any of the various pieces. (*wink*)

I just love spring, do you? In the last couple of years, it has replaced fall as my favorite season. I never thought that would happen. We all change, don't we?

Well, I'm off to the porch with my morning coffee. Hope your day is wonderful!

Thanks for dropping in.

Spring is Calling

 Spring is calling.

What is it saying....you ask?

Time to start my spring cleaning. I would rather sit on the porch and read or work in the yard but the house is calling to me. I will take one room at a time and make it sparkle again.

I always feel like a million bucks after I super clean the house. Do you?

I love everything fresh and clean and ordered. 

Thanks for dropping in. Hope your day is wonderful.

In My Studio

 Hello Everyone,

I am in my studio working on a new project. I encourage myself with roses....aren't these lovely?

 Are you busy getting ready for Easter?

The weather is so beautiful here, it is hard to really get anything done except dream away the hours on the porch. But, I am managing. (*wink*)

Hope you have a lovely evening. Thanks for popping in.

My Spot for the Weekend

{The table above was actually my old kitchen island...before we remodeled that space. I couldn't bear to part with it so I put it on the porch. I love it!}


 If you want me, this is where I will be for the weekend.

It is actually a little chilly but that won't last here. It will be warm by the afternoon. I have a stack of new house magazines calling my name.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Thanks for your visit!
