When I was little, my mom went through a popular course called, The Image of Loveliness.
It was all about knowing what colors and styles worked best on your individual features. You were either a 'summer', 'spring', 'winter', or 'autumn' based on your coloring.
I've always said this house is a summer house.
It shows it's best when the sun is shining and bright.
We've had an unseasonably warm spring, and all the spring flowers are bursting.
My snowball bushes are finally getting huge, and it's fabulous to step out into the yard and cut these beautiful blooms to bring inside.
I especially love our living room and dining room this time of year. It's airy, light and cheery- and opening the windows to let the fresh air in just makes my heart happy.
This pretty marble base candelabra is a new addition to my dining room- it was a piece I took with me to The Farmhouse Show, but I'm going to enjoy it for a few days before taking it into the shop.
The snowballs also make a nice bouquet in my French flower bucket in the living room.
I love that snowballs are so casual and carefree- hinting at warmer days of summer, just around the corner.
Such a pretty, generous flower. Easy and carefree.
In 5 years, they've grown from a 3 foot plant, to a 10 foot hedge.
A little romance from the garden to indoors.
