Hi there and happy Friday afternoon. This was an unexpected post but if I told you there is a raging snow storm outside, would you believe me? I thought so…yes its true. It’s snowing on this first day of spring…..I don’t even have the words.? Hot off the presses from a few hours ago….

The only thing I can think of to combat this dreaded winter that will not end is to fill my house with spring and hopefully by channeling a spring vibe, it will fight its way over to NY to stay! I sure hope so.

I picked up some beautiful tulips at Whole Foods which were also extremely reasonable and had fun playing on this snow day. Also set up a table for two for a friend coming by for lunch who I hadn’t seen in a while. To me no flower says spring quite like the elegant versatile and hardy tulip. So here is my answer to old man winter…….


Love the colors of the variegated tulips.. my favorite this yearunna8676med unnADSFSA3amed

They always look beautiful in blue and white!


And my table for two (check out my new monogrammed napkins too) LOVE these:)


Then added a few more to jars in my kitchen…

These are 8 days and going fairly strong…..impressive!

And to my mantle, am in love with the way this came out-

I hope old man winter is having fun on his last day in town..because I am fully ready to embrace spring and all the goodness that comes along with it. Enough really is enough!! How about you? Ready for spring too? Are you a spring flower nut like me? Thank you for stopping in, wishing you a wonderful afternoon and end to your week! Until next time……

Breathtakingly beautiful. When is your book coming out? You really need one Tina!! I love the tulips and the way you elevated them by putting them in blue and white vases instead of the standard glass…genius. I am definitely going to copy you:-) Have a great weekend, really hope this is the last of winter for you.

Fresh flowers and quality girlfriend time is a great way to chase away the snow blahs !!! Who needs this grief on the first day of spring ? I’m ready to pull out the sandals and little flowered sun dresses.
Have a super weekend !

Damn you Tina!!! I dream about your house, your flowers and your ginger jars and your house, and your house, and your house. Really – I have actually had dreams where I am in your house and all I see is beauty and those daggone amazing blue and white ginger jars. Thanks by the way! Much better than a nightmare.
Beautiful Tulips πŸ™‚

Hi Tina Oh this was so nice for the first day of spring. I know you really didn’t want any more snow. I would have loved one more and we might get a wet snow next week in Virginia. Your tulips and vases etc are beautiful and inspiring. I always look forward to seeing what you serve at your luncheons too. I love to copy. Any pictures ??! Hugs, Kathy

There are many things I miss about living in the Northeast, but those late snows and cold and delays to Spring – I DO NOT MISS that. Your tulips are a lovely anecdote, but Spring is the South means tulips blooming outside your window as well as on your dining table – yours is stunning!

What is going on with all that snow?! The West Coast has had two mild winters in a row .. and that means next winter will be a cold one.. and the EAST πŸ˜‰ will have a break. Keep the tulips coming Tina! They look so pretty and will make all the difference in your mood. Hang in there!

Well, your home certainly looks pretty in the snow! Logan is home from college and wanted pizza so I headed out around 5 pm and it was beginning to flurry. I haven’t been out since and don’t want to look in case it has piled up this way. Lordy, Lordy, enough already! Your floral arrangements are gorgeous – they certainly feel like spring! xo

Tina..they look gorgeous in your blue and white pottery…so pretty!

Wow. 8 days. They look great.

It’s spring in your home, Tina! The tulips are beyond beautiful andy I’m sure this is the last of Old Man Winter and that spring weather is headed your way. (I can’t wait to see the beautiful tables you set for springtime entertaining!! ) And I’ll bet your lunch was wonderful.
Think spring!


I love your positive thinking with the Spring tulips! Unbelievable snow!

Good morning Tina! When I lived in Boston, I remember every first day of spring it would snow. Here in Minneapolis now, this year we’ve hardly had any and we are officially in a drought. Sorry to see you got snow again! Your tulips are fabulous; my husband came home last night with a lovely bunch of white tulips and I LOVE THEM TOO! Stay hopeful that we soon will be reveling in our gardens! I hope that you also get that fantastic green house you were talking about once….

BE WELL! Anita

So sorry that you are getting the snow, dear Tina. Your house looks beautiful both inside and outside as always. I’ll call you from The Clubhouse.

Gorgeous! Those tulips look divine in the blue and white vases. And yes, we had snow in DC as well. Hopefully that will be it. What a long, frigid winter. Happy spring!! Cheers

Absolutely incredible arrangements that you’ve made- what a way to welcome the new season of spring!

With a grateful heart,
