Good Tuesday morning to you. I periodically share recent happenings or highlights from the last week or so via pictures from my iPhone. Nothing earth shattering by any means and I look forward to when I get back to fun adventures but for now its a pretty low key existence:) Hope you have had a great weekend, mine could have been smoother but hoping for smoother sailing into the week! Here we go- __________________________________________ My perseverance with my azalea topiaires paid off, they are blooming like mad! i wish I could keep them looking this way forever! Shown here in our trellis/floral cylinder pot (click here) My first attempt at zucchini chips! These were SO good, only thing I learned was you cannot make them too thin, I used a mandolin but need to cut them thicker next time. Seasoned with olive oil, salt, pepper and heavy on the oregano. Baked at 275 for about 2 hours. As good as potato chips! My favorite tree on our property coming into bloom, I anticipate it every year:) Happy to announce these sold out beautiful ginger jar salt and peppers are back in production. This was supposed to have been set outside but mother nature was not cooperating, so moved it indoors Just love this variegated tulip in our small village scene tulpieres, a match made in heaven:) As we are working to shed the pandemic pounds, this is a go to meal, baked bronzini (olive oil, lemon, garlic, salt, pepper and oregano) with a chopped Greek salad, healthy and satisfying Was inspired by Charlotte Moss to not shun baby’s breath (though I have most of my life). Proof that it can hold its own! Our etched glass line…..one of my proudest achievements! I love black tole and these two are two of my favorite containers, I was torn which one to use so I decided to use one of each! Click here to see our tole planters Above is last week and below, a week late. Almost in full bloom and the grass even greener:) One of my favorite meals, super easy light Shrimp Scampi and a vegetable, satisfying and low cal When I cannot get fresh flowers, our gorgeous faux peonies do just fine! Shown here are 2 clusters in each container. Click here to see Loving our new cylinder pots to use as oversized utensil holders! Sold out of this one but have a few left of the same in a bird/floral, click here Friend came by and brought the prettiest flowers! Thankfully there is never a shortage of pretty containers around here Was so excited to see our gorgeous wicker pagodas come back in stock, small, medium and large (click here, scroll down for individual sizes) A Set up a table for two in my dining room for my husband and I because we never use that room and I have no idea why:) Plus any chance to use our new pierced dinnerware is good enough reason for me! Our tall pagoda salt and peppers are back in Adore our painted pagodas and can see planning a summer party around them! Just smitten with our new 6″ wicker box planter, perfect for smaller arrangements and myrtle topiaires like what I did here, brand new! Click here to see on shop Our new cylinder containers make a gorgeous vessel to hold flowers too…. My white azalea topiaries still blooming like made, lots of TLC (daily watering) and an occasional spray with water all over the blossoms ______________________________________ And there is life in the last week or two , at least the good and pretty side of things! Always appreciate you stopping in, wishing everyone a beautiful day. Hope the sun is shining and the birds are chirping. Spring is alive over here and I couldn’t be happier about it. Until next time….
