A Late Spring Mini Tour

I thought I would share a look around as Spring is slowly moving towards Summer. You wouldn't know it by the weather we have had but this week will be VERY warm for a few days. Let's look around! After it rained like cats and dogs all day Sat. it was such a welcoming sight to see the SUN shining brightly Monday morning.
 These are all early morning shots, with the sun streaming in.
 The house feels a little lighter in the warmer months.
 I feel that the details of a home really show the personality of who lives there. I have never been one to follow "trends" as I know what I (and Joe) love to be surrounded with. We like to showcase our collections and beautiful inherited pieces.
 I know that so many love the all white look but I am a person who loves color. It just isn't me to keep a room all white. I remember when we moved in here I couldn't wait to start painting and get some color around us:) It took over a year but was worth the wait.
 I will be changing the pillows and coffee table soon, to a little lighter look. Just changing pillows can make a room look very different.
 I love the shadows that are created in the morning.

 Last week my sweet hubby took everything out of the curio, and cleaned all the shelves and pieces and put it all back together. It always feels so good to get a job like that done.
 The kitchen has not been painted yet but it is a hard job to get above these cabinets so it is an item on our "to do" list.
 Birds and gardening are the theme in the kitchen and breakfast room for Spring and Summer.

 This candle holder is many years old but I love having a candle burning.
 The birdhouse lamp is one of my favorites. I usually have it on the hutch but decided this year to put it here and make a little vignette around it.

 The utensil holder and plate came from Target many years ago too. I like greens and blues in the Spring and Summer in the kitchen
 I wanted to show you this arrangement I did 2 weeks ago. I found this bunch of faux peonies at a favorite garden center for a FABULOUS price. I knew I could put them in my Grandmother's vase, that I treasure.
 The colors are perfect!
 I love the little ferns added too.
Thanks for your visit. Tonight as I write this I am having trouble visiting ANY blogs so hope to be able to tomorrow. I hope you all have a beautiful day and I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's day!
