The Elephant in the Room

Believe it or not...

I managed to squeeze this awesome

Wicker Elephant Bar

In the back of our Volvo Wagon on our way home from our vacation in Palm Springs last week.

You never know what you'll find which it what makes it so fun :)

I'm trying to decide if I should sell him or put him to work in our tented pavillion this summer.

He's so Palm Beach Chic, n'est pas?

Inspiration for a Lush Spring Landscape

I’ve recently posted a blog about spring and how I’ve been looking at different plants to incorporate into my front and back yards. I’ve been looking up landscaping inspirations and thought I would share some with all of you!

The simplicity of this backyard reminds me of my own – clean and requires low maintenance. I love that some greenery was added around the perimeter of the space giving it a breath of fresh air.

With the sun shining in so bright, this yard would be a perfect place to lounge all summer.

This backyard space is so grand! The multiple tiers of grass combined with the gravel is a great combination and has the charm of the English Countryside.

So luscious and green! The bigger rocks and stones make this yard simple, yet modern.

The colors and mix of flowers screams spring! This front yard is so inviting and likely making all the neighbours envious.

This front yard has a more traditional landscaping. It combines plants, grass and a concrete pathway. The landscape design is lovely and a definite attention grabber.

All in a days work...

Admittedly, a very good day!

Gorgeous Old Hickory Leather Chesterfield in a luscious merlot color.

Very large and wonderful antique thread cabinet from the turn of the century.

Some days are just better than others :)

What have you turned up lately?

Spring Fever

Spring is bursting forth in the Bay Area and I've got a bad case of Spring Fever!

Spring is my favorite season and I've got all kinds of new projects rolling around in my brain.

I've been tweaking things in my backyard and have been playing around with some ideas in the front yard as well.

But at the moment I've been obsessing over ferns!

Ever since I caught the end of My Fair Lady a few weeks ago channel surfing, I found myself transfixed on the scenes that took place in Professor Higgins mother's house, especially those in her solarium.

  I was inspired to bring that garden like feeling inside our home.

So I lavished some ferns on the mantle 

as well as the hearth.

I found some interesting white flowering succulent plants at TJ's and placed them in a ceramic planter I scored at a church rummage sale over the weekend.

And now it feels like Spring inside as well outside my windows!

 Up for grabs...
