Having been sick this week, I have not been able to keep up with the major cleaning. Today with some hefty drugs in me, prescribed my good ole Doc, I felt ready to dig in and get the house scrubbed and clean for the weekend. I have vacuumed, dusted, did laundry and picked up the wayward stacks of papers that were hanging about. Feels so good. I am now enjoying a cup of coffee and some home made junk in the trunk cookies I made Wednesday. Will have to share the recipe.
I decided to lighten up my dining room with my white tablecloth and set a spring center piece.
I used a tray I picked up at a local garden center. I love the heart cut outs and the rustic feel. Just layered in some lighter pieces to reflect the season and the light.
The snapdragons are from my yard and I love to plant lots of them for cut flowers.
Silver pieces collected over the years lay in a Haviland dish.
Crystal and an old lamp help to reflect the light in my otherwise dark dining room.
It has become a dark day with rain expected. A lit candle makes a sparkly scene.
Also, Ricki Jill of Art at Home is having an awesome giveaway for her 100th post. It is some great Anthropologie lovelies. Check out her blog. I am a daily follower of her posts.
