spring will come…but until then…

Even though January is pretty bland in my neck of the woods, it does give me a chance to focus on cleaning out my closets and getting rid of a lot of accumulated junk. But best of all, this dreary month makes me dream of warmer weather, longer days and eating supper outside!

I think this amazing photograph by Michael Graydon will serve as a sort of Spring talisman for me. Although I’m not brave enough for this palette in my own home, I’m envious of people who have the courage to use it. It’s ethereal and very appealing. If it were my house though, I couldn’t resist adding colourful artwork and splashy table linens! It inspires me to get out the pruning shears and clip some cherry branches for an arrangement.

  1. I have been collecting white dishes for a while, with four daughters and four grandchildren, I usually try to buy things in 12’s.My husband is greek, So we have lots of celebrations-Easter, I love the ideal of the large branch as in the photo.Think I will try it this year,I can hang all my decorated eggs too.

    • Hi Wanda…I want to come to your house for Easter! It took me a long time to stop buying (tableware, glassware, flatware, napkins, etc.) in sets of six. I was always so frustrated trying to piece together place settings from other patterns whenever my family came for dinner. Now I buy everything in sets of 12.
