Hi everyone! While many of you have been experiencing unusually warm temps, spring has been very slow to arrive here in the Pacific Northwest. Until now, that is! It is starting to warm up a bit, the sky is blue, flowers are beginning to bloom, and the birds are singing happily!
So, I've been busy picking fresh blooms, and putting bouquets around the house. I love these gorgeous camellias. I think they look so pretty in this vintage milk glass compote, which was a lucky thrift store find.
Aren't they pretty?
Nothing says spring like a big bunch of cheery daffodils, don't you think?
Rhododendrons are very popular here in Washington, and are just starting to blossom. I especially love the bright pink ones!
Another pretty vintage milk glass vase, an estate sale bargain, is filled with a bunch of grape hyacinth, one of my favorite spring time blooms! That's me and hubby on our wedding day in Hawaii, 11 1/2 years ago!
Trillium, which reminds me of home, are starting to bloom in the woods.
My mom and dad on their wedding day. And the little green music box was brought home from a trip that we took to Germany quite a few years ago.
I am so excited! A local newspaper was sponsoring a giveaway to win tickets to see comedian Brad Garrett, and I won! Brad played "Robert", Raymond's brother, on "Everybody loves Raymond". Hubby and I still love watching the reruns, and love Brad's sense of humor! The show is tonight at a casino near us, and I can't wait! The funny thing is, I had forgotten all about entering, and the newspaper that gave the tickets away was one that we normally never read. Hubby had happened to go the store to pick up a few things, and they were giving away copies of the paper to try and entice new subscribers. Things have been, shall we say, more than a bit stressful here at the Chateau, so a night of laughter is just what the doctor ordered!
