Lilly Dot and Jacob

Today I am sharing pictures of my two Great-Grandkids....Yes, I said Great-Grandma.
I did start young and my daughter and her two daughters followed along.

 Lilly Dot and Jacob.

Here's Lilly Dot
 Such a princess.  She loves to pose. She is turning 4 April 19th.

 Our little Lilly is starting dancing lessons.  She is already striking the pose.

Here's Jacob...Jakey.  Our Ginger and quite the character.

His first haircut....

Such a ham....

Look at his expression...A little smirk....LOL
Jacob is turning 4 this year as well.

Kitchen backsplash is in!

The kitchen backsplash is finally done.  Now, our new kitchen is complete.
The field tile is 4x4's stone.  I like to run  a course straight and then add a liner and finish diagonally.
Our tile guys did the job for us this time.  We had to wait to order some of the tile.
The two focal points are different.  We fell in love with the look behind the range top.
The window wall is another look.
I must say, I should have gone with my gut feeling, by adding more glass tiles for the window wall.  One of the tile personnel suggested using less and  now I feel it looks like polka dots.  We will live with the window wall for awhile, to see if it grows on us.  If not, our tile guy said, we can  install new tiles right over that, because there is room, because of the recessed niche.

Before the tile.


River Bordeaux granite

I will leave you with a picture of Sir Dante. He is 10 months old now and quite a character.

Happy weekend everyone....Hugs...........

Bunny Delight

Easter is coming on fast, so I thought I would create a special Easter bunny tablescape in our Breakfast room.

The beautiful flowers are from the Farmer's market.  They have the prettiest flowers there and are so reasonable. The french doors lead out to a patio, we use for dinner parties.

The white chargers are from Pier 1.  I just love them!

I used the toddler pink lacy skirt to cover my vase.  I like to use these in my tablescapes.  They can be found very reasonable at Ross.  The wreath was on sale at Hobby Lobby.  In fact, I bought two, so I can hang them on our front doors.  I found the flower balls at TJMaxx.

The green flatware is from Horchow on sale.  Love the pretty polka dot napkins. The bunny chair covers are from the Dollar store.  I found matching little bunny pails at Target, along with the bunny ears.

Here's a night view into our Breakfast room, with the french doors open.
Happy early Easter....Many blessings to all.

Proud as a Peacock!

Peacocks are large, colorful pheasants (typically blue and green) known for their iridescent tails. These tail feathers, or coverts, spread out in a distinctive train that is more than 60 % of the bird’s total body length and  they boast colorful "eye" markings of blue, gold, red, and other hues.

The large train is used in mating rituals and courtship displays. It can be arched into a magnificent fan that reaches across the bird's back and touches the ground on either side. Females are believed to choose their mates according to the size, color, and quality of these outrageous feather trains.
The term "peacock" is commonly used to refer to birds of both sexes. Technically, only males are peacocks. Females are peahens, and together, they are called peafowl.

These are from  222 Fifth
 I bought these pretty Peacock plates at Home Goods.  I know Alycia from Table Twenty-One recently did a tablescape with the same dishes.  I believe her Mother purchased them for her.

Here's the peacock, standing so proud.  Our neighbor has a peacock.  She named him Mr. P

Here's another proud peacock. I bought these at Zgallerie, along with the turquoise napkins.

The crystal candle holder my husband and I found at Pottery World.
I love that store!  It is kind of pricey, though.
I am using my trusty pillow cases again.  So much better covering my red chairs.

Of course I am using the beautiful pinwheel tablecloth. It's on sale right now  at
Your Chair Covers

Have a great week!  Don't forget to check out my tutorials....
