Favorite Month of the Year

It's April!!

April is my favorite month of the year!! It's my wedding anniversary, Easter, my birthday and the time everything begins to become green and beautiful again. 

Spring time is so lovely with it's sweet blooms and a green color in the foliage that seems almost electric. I feel the need to be outside as much as possible to enjoy the cool breezes before it turns to the Texas hot summer. 

In honor of my favorite month I wanted to share some spring and Easter decor I added to the casa.

I use these cute little chicks every year they were a gift from a sweet friend and they make me so happy.

I switched to my mothers china sugar bowl and creamer, I love the rose bud on top.

Lavender ball


Spring scent lemon mint

Fresh white linens and summer pillows

And put some blooms out

Spring, we joyfully welcome you!!

Floral Friday

Flower hunt...we went to check out a flower market this holiday weekend.

They have everything 

Wall of hydrangea ...yes please

All colors of roses!

This is a special hybrid fancy rainbow rose 

After much paroosing and trying to figure out how I could get them all in my car. I chose these beauties to go home with me.

Gave me a chance to break out my beautiful crystal rose bowl!

Aren't they amazing??? I love all the ruffles!

Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!

Floral Friday

Happy Friday and almost 3 day weekend!! It has been over 100 here in Texas this week but surprisingly my yard is doing well so I thought I would share some of those today.

Pots by the front door

Lantana looks lovely!


More lantana I love the little buds in this one.


Mint and rosemary.

Considering the weather I am very happy with how things are looking and I am already planning what I can plant for the Fall.

I am also loving this orange and cucumber water right now ...sweet, refreshing and yummy!

I hope you have a lazy holiday weekend!

Guest Retreat

Good Morning and Happy Monday!! I hope everyone got off to school this morning! We had a busy weekend and had some company as well. I love having company. I don't live super close to a lot of family so I love when they come to stay and I want to make it extra special for them.

When ever I have guests come over, usually family and usually my mom. I like to make sure they are comfortable. So this is what I do to get it ready. Beside the usual things like clean the sheets and dust the room. I like to add some special touches.

Put in fresh flowers and reading materials. My mom is like me and likes water by her bed so I make sure there are coasters.

Place a robe incase your guest don't want to come out in the rest of the house with their pjs on. And also a hook for hanging clothes.

Clean towels so they don't have to search for them and some snackies incase if late night munchies ( nuts and grapes) or what ever I have.

Sweet welcome note.

Also make sure they have a light by their bed incase they want to do some late night reading or need to see to get up out of bed. I think having a mirror even a small one is good too. Just so you can check yourself before you join the rest of the house hold or without making it to the rest room. 

In the restroom I make sure there are extra wash cloths and toiletries. This is a great time to use all those travel things I get from hotels.

I also like to have a robe in the rest room, hair towel and a place to hang other used towels. 

That is pretty much it ...what do you do to welcome guests?
