~♥ My Canisters ♥~

Happy Friday, blogging friends!  I'm so glad that many of you enjoyed the pictures I posted from Better Homes and Gardens...I can't stop looking at them myself.  I really do appreciate all of your visits and comments.
 I thought I'd share something in my kitchen that I lve...my canisters.  They were an inexpensive find at Wal-mart and I like the fact that they are plain.  I love to jazz them up with my Chalk-ink Markers!

Sorry that the pictures are a little off...I took allergy medicine and I'm feeling slightly loopy...atleast my nose isn't running!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  We're off to the Motocross races on Sunday in Shippensburg, PA, where my daughter's boyfriend will be racing.  Please say a prayer for his safety...last season he had a bad broken arm.  Take care, my dear blogging friends.

Love, Love, Love this porch.
Red chairs make me smile :)
Very clever!

Love the blue and white dishes!

Love this very organized space.
More red...
Great idea for a linen closet.
More prettiness...
Lovely ferns and a great red couch.
Great red stools.
Darling.
This sink is amazing!
So simple yet so pretty.
More loveliness.
What a great kitchen!
So homey.

Thanks for stopping by, dear friends!

~♥ Signs of Spring ♥~


Even though there is still snow on the ground at my home, blogging friends, Spring has sprung a few places around the house!  Here is my hutch in the kitchen.
I love these little pitchers...they were a thrift store find.
They're actually measuring cups.
A pewter pitcher filled with spring flowers.
The window above my sink...sorry you can't see it that well...there was glare from the sun (can you see all of the snow in the background?).
More flowers...

A sweet little bird nest always makes me smile!
Thank you for stopping by to visit, sweet blogging friends...I always enjoy your company!
Have a wonderful weekend.

~♥ My Wish ♥~


“This is my wish for you: Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, ...courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life.”

~♥ It's Love ♥~

I'm thinking this would make a dandy purse for Spring!  It's called Alice in Sittin In a Tree...from Vera Bradley.  I adore Vera Bradley purses...it's the only thing I actually splurge on.
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
I'm working on a new post for my baking blog...I'm making Apple Pie Pockets from this book.

Have a wonderul first day of March...spring is just around the corner!
