I'm joining the lovely Shelia,
author of the blog,
featuring your favorite cupboard.
She said baker's racks could be included
so I'm sharing my favorite corner
which sits between the kitchen & the sunroom.
It is so fun to decorate for the seasons &
I am SOOOOO ready for some Spring!
I gathered lots of green & white accessories from elsewhere in the house.
The teapot was recently given to me by my younger sister, Louise.
It goes beautifully with my Lily of the Valley teacup.
The green salad plates in the little stands were made in Portugal.
I recently found them at T.J. Maxx for $3.99 each
I also got the matching salad bowl while there.
Some silk hydrangeas add a touch of greenery.
I had a bag of limes in the refrigerator.
I bought them to serve with Sante Fe Chicken Chili & had some leftover...
the limes, not the chili.
I'll have to share that recipe with you soon.
It is REALLY good!
My little birdie is sitting on my husband's mother's
worn & tattered old cookbook.
Published in 1936, it has some really interesting recipes.
The part I treasure is where, on the inside flap, my hubby had written
wake me for 9:00 Mass.
How sweet is that?
He is such a devout Catholic, even to this day.
We figured he must have been about 10 years old
when he wrote that note.
I've used lots of my white dishes along with some vintage milk glass pieces.
I was excited to find this one with its lid intact.
I love the intricate details & texture on them.
I remember several pieces that my mother had years ago.
More Portuguese ceramics with lots of texture.
Since Easter is late this year,
I'm going to leave my green & white in place
then I'll add my bunnies & eggs to the mix
closer to April 24th.
It looks a little more Spring like now.
If only Mother Nature would cooperate outside!
Thanks for stopping by The Gazebo House.
You're welcome anytime!
