Hello and happy Sunday. Hope you are doing well and having a great weekend. Here its been pretty nice but winter is getting old. Thankfully we crept up into the 50’s yesterday but lots of dirty icy snow still remains which is not an attractive sight. Have had a nice weekend, dinner with friends, some much needed down time and probably a canceled trip into the city today due it being forecasted to rain all day. A good day to stay in and organize:) I am waiting for spring like never before and let’s hope spring is getting ready to show it’s pretty face soon. I am ready to fill my house with cherry blossoms, forsythia and lilac! Plus I realized unless you are partaking in winter sports, winter days are way too long and cold for my liking. Are you tired yet of my ranting about how much I dislike winter:) OK, enough, let’s move along to my Seven on Sunday- _____________________________________________ 1 ONE GORGEOUS LEMON THEMED PARTY I love lemons and idea of a party around them so much I did a post on this subject in 2018 (click here if you missed it). Look at these fabulous pictures form a dreamy lemon themed party in Capri…..so fabulous! It is simple to do when you think about it, lemons and lots of beautiful greenery. Has me thinking…….

I so enjoyed this video featuring all of the stunning rooms from a Southern Style Now showcase in New Orleans…would have loved to have gone! I was impressed with how they honored timeless elegant traditional decorating but made it feel current, so well done! Thought you might enjoy. 3 BEAUTIFUL CUSTOMER PHOTOS These just get better and better, I am always so wowed every time I get pictures of how my customers are using my products. These pictures are the best compliment to what I do and my products so please do keep them coming. Check out these recently received pictures and if you have one to send us please send to [email protected] so we can add it to our online gallery! 4 INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST There is a theme this weekend, and I didn’t even realize it until after I put this post together, flowers! That must mean that spring is very much on my mind and hopefully a sign that spring is not too far away, fingers and toes are crossed. 5. INSPIRING STORY OF THE WEEK This video is powerful. Few things are as heartbreaking as a child being bullied. I loved watching this because it is a reminder that every single one of us has the power within us to stop something we know that is wrong. I would not hesitate to speak up myself in this instance but it made me feel good to see the average bystander doing the right thing nice to know that so many of us feel the same:) It is inspiring and I imagine how that child felt, being shielded from the hate, what an empowering thing those people did, and what a difference that small gesture can make. 6. NEW CUSTOM FLORALS. Say hello to our newest floral arrivals. These are of the. highest quality and literally could fool anyone. I am all about real flowers but will not lie, having not to worry about watering and keeping up florals that look this good is a huge perk and one less thing for me to worry about in the day to day minutia. I get emails from people often who, once they get their order, write to say they cannot believe how realistic they are. Click here to see our full line of custom lifelike florals. This elegant arrangement above is gorgeous and quite large, very impressive Isn’t this a beauty!! Just love this one! Really loving this lemon topiary and may need to add a pair to my kitchen island:) These new hydrangeas offered in green and blue are simply stunning. They are sizable, very realistic and look like you just went and cut them from your flower garden. At $120 these are a lot of value and will look great just about anywhere! For someone who has a more modern/transitional interior, this lifelike orchid is a stunner 7. SUNDAY’S SURVEY OK this week is all about Christmas. Yes, you heard right:) I need your input here. This is for anyone who has purchased our exquisite line of Christmas ornaments OR if you are considering purchasing this season. The blue and white collection is/was the main category with the most ornaments, but I offered the last two years, a gold and white collection, green and white and red and white. Though those were not as extensive as the blue and white, we still did well with those other colors. Now we are down to just a few boxes of each and I am at a point where I need to make a commitment (or not) to continuing with those colorways. So the question is- if you think I should continue with a new collection for those other colors and if so which? All three? Your input is most appreciated, these are always big questions when in comes to manufacturing as the quantities are very large so your opinion is really helpful. Thank you in advance! Just a reminder as to what they look like- What is your opinion on keeping the gold/white, red/white and green/white ornament collections? ______________________________________________ And that is a wrap for this weekend. Hope whatever you are up to is fun but mostly relaxing. Today with a very rainy day on tap, it will likely mean staying in and doing some organizing and hopefully going out for a family dinner later, love my lazy Sundays! Thanks for stopping in, wishing you a great end to your weekend. Until next time…… PS With spring around the corner, it’s not too soon to start daydreaming about alfresco meals!
