Jenifer Rizzo-Spring Linky Party
I am so happy to be back to blogging! My lap top bit the dust a couple weeks ago, it was dead. I was told it was gone for good, and I mourned it deeply. Thankfully, I am married to a computer genius who miraculously brought it back to life and managed to save all my pictures! I would be so lost without him, he saved the day for sure.
Things have been busy this past month. The kids and I made a trip with my mother, sister, and her children to one of our favorite places, Bid Cedar Lodge in Branson, MO. It is a really special place to us, and we always look forward to going and getting away from everyday life for a little bit.
What a perfect place to be on a rainy, cold, winters day!
Samantha started her ballet lessons. I just love watching all the little girls learn how to dance.
I started decorating for spring last month. I never last very long after Christmas before I start. I know that may be too early for some, but I have never really followed seasonal rules. I always just do what I feel like doing when it comes to decorating. Who made those rules up anyway? :) I could easily jump straight to spring when the Christmas goes away. Although, I do hold off the rabbits and eggs until closer to Easter.
For my birthday in Jan., I went birthday shopping and ended up buying some new stone accents. They aren't really stone, but they look it. I like mixing different textures into my vignettes, and I realized I would like to add some stone to my spring, another pretty natural element! I found these pieces at The White Rabbit. I wasn't sure where I was going to put them all, but they all found a place. Don't you love when that happens? That is how I shop, if you really, really, love it, there will be a good place for it.
I decided to fill the inside with another stone piece, pheasant feathers, old sheet music, old books, a mirror, and small boxwood urn.
I have some fun plans for today, after wanting to watch this show for almost a year, I am finally going to sit down and start season 1 of Downton Abbey! I have my English candle and tea ready. If you are also late to the party, you can watch season 1 on Netflix, and season 2 on Hulu Plus. I have season 3 recorded and saved on the DVR, but I am sure you can find it to watch elsewhere, if you do not have it recorded. We will see how far I can get this weekend.
Thank you for stopping by! I will return soon with more spring and Easter, have a great weekend!
