Waiting for Spring........




Spring...what does spring mean to you?
For me, spring marks then end of my deep winter sleep! A time to come of out hibernation. I get itchy to leave the confines of the house and move into our outdoor living space. My tastebuds are ready for bbq´s and sipping my favorite vino on the patio.
Unfortunately....mother nature does not share my views as she is letting us wait and is sharing with us cold and rain instead of blue skies and sunshine. So, to make that wait not seem so long, I have brought spring into our indoor living space, by creating a spring tablescape. I am very honored to share this tablescape with Chloe Crabtreechloe
Chloe contacted me recently and asked if I would like to take part in a Spring Tablescape Blog Hop! Of course I said yes! I can´t wait to see what the other bloggers have created.
 



One of the perks of living in Germany? Flowers are very inexpensive. I can get 2 bunches of tulips at the grocery store for less than 5 Euros!


Back in January, I was in Cloppenburg visiting family and managed a stop at one of my favorite stores there....Depot The Outlet Store.. OMG....I could go crazy there everytime! My Spring sign as well as the little bird and table runner come from Depot.




Another one of my favorite stores is ACTION...a dutch based company. Until recently I could only enjoy this store when I was in Cloppenburg, but now Berlin has  one too! That is where I purchased the candlestick holder that you see in the picture above...(i regret not buying two!)




My yellow charger plates are from Ikea!


THe napkin rings are from my sister Heidi


THe wine glasses were a gift from a my friends Irene and Chris


I always try to have some edible decorations on the table..... Found these cute chocolates at TJ Maxx

 

Happy Spring Everyone!

A woman with a plan

So... for awhile now I have tried to follow a plan when it comes to running the house and working out. Sometimes I am really successful and well....sometimes I am really NOT! Today I would like to share with you my "PLAN".  In the free time that is left over after the "chores" and "work out" are done, I try to get some craft work done, some baking done and of course I love spending my free time creating tablescapes...
Of Course all of this takes place around my JOb! You see I work in an ice cream parlor....making the ice cream! i love my job and am very gratefull that I have the job.

Love is in the air.........


Happy Thursday morning Everyone.. and Happy Ground Hog Day! I had to chuckle this morning....I was in the car on the way home from my early swim when the radio announcer mentioned that today is Ground Hog Day in America(I live in Germany, so you can imagine my surprise). Here I am living in Germany and it takes a german radio announcer to remind me that today is Ground Hog Day!!! Since there is 6 hour time difference, I will have to wait a few hours to see what the ground hog will tell us. I am seriously hoping that winter is on its way out.... I am done with it! As I am sure all of you are too!

Now, many of you know, that I am not the big Valentines DAy Fan.....too much sapiness for me, but I do love setting a Valentines DAy Tablescape!



THis little guy was a gift from Marajean...she was my moms best friend and loved my sisters and I as if we were her own children.

Valentines DAy is coming.......



It has been a long time since I have had a post for "Pink Saturday".....lately it has been hard for me to find enough pink to share( I do, after all live in a house hold with only men...even the cat is a male!)

This evening though I set one of my first Valentines Day Tables and I do believe that it would be fitting to share one of the many pictures with you all today and this way celebrate my return to Pink Saturday.
