~ Taking A Chance ~

Hi everyone, I hope you had a super weekend, it was pretty quiet around here. Mr. P started the mowing and then pooped out, I finished a bit more of it leaving some for Mr. P to mow, I'm hoping he'll feel well enough to go out to try it again. I believe this is the earliest we've ever mowed in our part of the country.

Blue and white is such a traditional color to have in your home. I've been pulling my pieces out by leaps and bounds enjoying the memories of when and where I bought them, then asking myself, "why on earth did you put all that beauty away?". Guess that's what we do, we put our things away then decide bring them out and enjoy them all over, then it's like Christmas all over again. :-))
The other side.....
I've been seeing orchids all over the place, I've fallen in love with their beauty. I've never had an orchid don't know beans from apple butter about caring for them, but I'm sure going to give it the good 'ole college try. I picked this beauty up today knowing it would work perfectly in the blue dish.  I added some moss to the top to fill out the pot and add a bit more elegance to a beautiful plant.
I haven't really finished the dining room table, who I'm kidding, I've just barely stared. I wanted to share bits and pieces with you. If you've been a long time visitor to the blog, you know nothing stays the same around here for long. :-))
Yep, you got it, not Easter related, still a pretty plate that  flows with the blue and white pot. lol

Miss Bunny in all her finest... she really needs a name. I'm going to have to think on that one, do you have any ideas?

I couldn't resist another shot of the orchids, I hope your computer screen shows it's true beauty. Wish me luck in keeping this baby around for a long time. Thanks for swinging in to view the table, we love your visits and sweet comments.
Until next time.....

We have been mowing too .. so early!
Your dining room is lovely and I adore the table runner. I had orchids years ago. They were given to me as gifts. Yours are gorgeous with the blue and white.
