Looking Forward to Spring

Hi Everyone! Wow, I can't believe that it's been over a month since my last post! Time really flies!! I have been busy decorating for others; and the blog has taken a back seat for awhile. Thanks for all of the emails that I received, just checking up on me!



I don't know about you, but I am looking forward to Spring. The temps are wonderful this week, with a high of 80 degrees predicted by the weekend. I've been spending a lot of time on Pinterest lately, gathering ideas for our outdoor areas...

Warm outdoor living space-Pottery Barn  Love those pillows!

Those Pottery Barn images get me every time! I have some gift cards, from the holidays, burning a hole in my pocket; and I've got my eye on some great outdoor accents! I'm also looking forward to revamping the gardens out back. Dear Hubby and I are trying to come up with some new landscaping ideas.

I also hope to create some new Spring tablescapes. The time is fast approaching when we can enjoy our meals outside, before the sweltering heat of summer comes in...

Perfect for Mother's Day or a Spring luncheon.

So, I hope you'll join me in the weeks to come, as we celebrate Spring around here!  I have lots of ideas swirling around this head of mine...and I can't wait to get busy!


I hope you have enjoyed your visit today. I just wanted to pop in, so that you didn't forget about me!!! I always appreciate your visits and sweet comments! For more Spring decorating ideas, please feel free to join me on Pinterest

Thanks so much for stopping by; and Happy Decorating!

  1. Shenita,
    Welcome Back!!!
    So~o~o glad to hear from you, dear friend!!!
    I love your pending ideas of Spring and landscaping decor!!! We, too, must enjoy Spring meals here on the Prairie as our Summers are far too hot!!! "Mr. Ed" and I were discussing the location of the outdoor cushions and planning a time to freshen the garden!
    Looking forward to seeing your new post of Spring!!!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  2. Welcome back to the world of blogland stranger! LOL! Glad to hear that you're doing well and still enjoying decorating. Sounds like you've been busy. Love those pics you shared for outdoor inspiration. It's a great time to be thinking about sprucing up the outside areas of our home, isn't it? Can't wait to see what you'll be doing to yours.

  4. Welcome back Shenita, as fellow North Texan I'm going crazy over this fabulous weather too! I'm hauling all our potted plants out of their winter hibernation spot in the garage to the patio this weekend. I just hope I'm not going to be hauling them back if we get another freeze warning... you know how fickle Texas weather can be!

No time away is ever wasted when it is spent in happiness, health, and decorating splendor. I checked in on you and kept things "Pinteresting" on Pinterest.

  20. So glad you checked in Shenita. I was thinking about you the other day and realized how long it was since you posted. I thought maybe you had quit blogging. Sounds like you've been the good (and fun!) kind of busy. All those pictures you chose are beautiful, but I just had to pin that last one. Have a great weekend!

  22. It's good to know you are alive & well! We all have to take a little break every now & then. Life gets in the way! :-) I love that Pinterest! I'm so glad I finally learned how to use it after trying for more than a year. (Yes...I'm that dumb!) I LOVE that last Pinterest photo you posted with all the pale pinks!!! That's my style right there!!!! I think I follow you on Pinterest...I'm not sure.
