Ok, so it's not exactly spring yet in our neck of the woods, but it's beginning to look like it inside!
Isn't this rose amazing? Last week I treated myself to a bouquet at Trader Joe's. For just $3.99, I couldn't pass up these beauties!
Pinky coral roses have always been one of my favorites. What they lack in scent
(sadly, most of today's cultivated roses aren't fragrant), they more than make up in beauty!
The buds were just starting to open when I bought them, and I've been amazed at how big they have gotten. Each day they open more and more, and are actually bigger today than when I snapped these photos yesterday.
I also really love the hot pink roses. The yellow alstroemeria have never been my favorite flowers, but they do make good fillers, and they last for weeks!
I've put them in one of my favorite vintage milk glass vases, and placed them on our bistro set in the sunroom. We eat breakfast and lunch here every day, and it's our favorite room in the house!
(well, my craft room is actually my very favorite!!)
And since my friend Diana loves multiple views of the same thing (I think she said "the more the better"), this post is dedicated to her, tee, hee:)
Here's a view of part of the sunroom. Sorry for the poor quality, with all of the light coming in the windows it was hard for me to get a good shot.
Ok, now on to totally unrelated stuff!
All of the cold and snow from this past winter has left me longing for warmer days.
That must have been what inspired me to chose the bright and vibrant shades that I painted some of my latest Etsy shop offerings.
I was super excited to find this giant vintage wooden fork and spoon while thrifting on our Savannah trip!
At nearly 2 1/2 feet tall, they are huge!
I couldn't wait til we got home to paint them this fun and cheerful aqua chalk paint.
The color makes me think of the beach!
And speaking of the ocean, while we were on our trip I had fun painting these cute cast iron sea horse hooks.
I mixed up a bunch of different colors to create this pretty aquamarine shade that I love.
Then hubby helped mount them on vintage wooden plaques that he found for me
(he makes a great picker!!)
which I also painted beachy blues and aquas.
Aren't these little guys cute?
Finally we are thawing out this week, with temps in the 50's. That will seem like a heat wave for us!
Thanks for stopping by today.
