February and Winter
Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow so that may be why here in the south we have been enjoying mild temperatures in the sixties and seventies. I love winter but I am looking froward to spring after all of this nice weather. We probably still have a lot more winter to come, just guess I am having spring fever a little early. I know so many of you are still in the throes of a Polar Vortex and haven't been flirting with spring. Here, we go from one extreme to the next. Only a few days ago we were under a winter weather warning, meaning buy your milk and bread and don't drive. Everyone cleaned out the supermarkets but thank goodness we didn't get the ice and snow just freezing temperatures.
We were however, already getting the jokes about our rush to prepare for the cold, ice and snow!
So, what to do inside to feel warm and cozy and still bring a little spring inside? I normally add furry throws and pillows on sofas and beds and for spring I love fresh flowers. This week I had fun with a few vignettes mixing a little spring and winter.
I love Trader Joe's for fresh flowers. I picked up these potted Tete-a-Tete miniature daffodils and enjoyed them in a centerpiece for the breakfast table. After they started to dry out I snipped them to enjoy in a vase then I snipped the little heads for playing. My favorite flower!
My daffodils in the flower beds are in different stages of blooming. I think I'll have a big show this year.
The maidenhair fern that was used for a centerpiece for Christmas now adds a spring touch in the foyer
More fresh flowers for spring and for winter a fur throw and pillow in the living room
For the kitchen island another vase of fresh flowers along with sweet Valentine's
Thanks Jenna and Ricki Jill for the sweet gifts
And while we are in the kitchen and I have spring fever I am planning our next cook out, blackened fish. Grilling is something we definitely do a lot of in spring
Still both seasons in the powder room, my favorite
Parisian towels and a splash of color in the arrangement, stems from a sale at PB
the coffee table
A sweet treat, a Cafe Latte to enjoy
while I curl up on the sofa in the family room. A Tartan throw to keep me cozy and a new book to get inspired with.
