Signs of Spring

I've decided to link to Cindy at Romantic Homes' Show and Tell Friday.

January always brings the blooming of my pink Camellia. It is absolutely covered with blooms. The only problem is they are hard to bring inside, they don't like to hold onto their petals once cut.

These are pictures from last year as we just went through two weeks of continuous hard rains here in Central California and the petals are brown or completely knocked off the stems.

The camellia still looks pretty even after the rain damage.

Soon the red camellia will bloom, along with the Hyacinths. Spring is coming!

Purple for Valentine's Day

Time once again for Tablescape Thursday with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch.

Purple is my favorite color.
In almost any shade.

So I decided to do a Valentine's table in purple.

Simple and Basic.

Not much to say about this, it just makes me happy.
Thanks for looking at my tablescape. Enjoy the day.

Tassel Blessings

It's been a long time since I blogged. So sorry. Christmas time brought our house from the two of us to having seven adults in the house, coming and going. We live in a court and the street started looking like a used car lot==everyone has to have their own car in California, you can't get anywhere without!

I was checking in on the happenings at Between Naps on the Porch with Susan. Of course it's Met Monday. I don't have any new photos, so sorry. However, I bought myself a new camera which I will be practicing with and posting soon.

Check out the Tassels from The Tassel House.

This is one I love
The colors are perfect for my house. I'd love to put this in my dining room.

Check out the give-a-way that Susan has here.

Thanks for visiting.
