A Bit Of Beauty

was just what I needed today.

After a busy week, I was needing a bit of a pick me up and I was inspired by Sherry's post today. {here}

After breakfast out with Tim this morning, I headed out in the balmy rain to get groceries and run errands.

I always get groceries at Aldi (tonight we had their jars of Tikka Masala and chicken and rice for dinner - Yum!) and I know they sell flower bunches, too.

I picked up a bunch of roses and a bunch of other pretties.

I have a home keeping planned for this weekend.  The rest of the garlands will be packed away, I realized I have a "home for the holidays" sign still up in the kitchen, too.  I think the plaid plates  will be packed away for now and I am going to do some candles and other lights in the living room.

I also found a nice small lamp at Christmas Tree Shops today.  They have a new line of household items including furniture, and this lamp is just right for my kitchen counter.  I'll get some photos and show you next week.

What are you doing this weekend?

It is a "grand" weekend for us! We are finally having the sleepover that we had planned for the summer (several times) . . . the one that kept being postponed due to sickness! We are having such fun!!

I will be doing laundry and cleaning, as well as some meal prep for the week. I want to get a few new plants to replace some that died a few months ago. Fresh green in January is always welcome. Enjoy your puttering!

After Christmas when putting up the decorations is when I get inspired to change things around from before, especially the mantles. Love your flowers.

Beautiful flowers make me happy, like jumping straight to Spring:) Have a blessed day dear friend, sending HUGS your way!

What lovely flowers! So bright and cheery. My weekend will entail sorting through our Mardi Gras decor, deciding what to put out and what needs to be replaced. Then, it's on to getting my stitchy projects sorted for the year. I've always just stitched whilly-nilly, so a bit of a schedule should help me stay on track, hopefully. Continued prayers for your friend who is recovering from surgery. Willful Homing hugs ~ Donna E.

I will have to look for that Tikka Masala at A's. White lights and candles--so perfect for these cold winter evenings. I'm sure you will make it pretty!

I am playing catch up this weekend. The list is long...but I have a lot of helpers. Your flowers are beautiful!


  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We spent Saturday, doing things around the house, and then we swam. Kyle and Sarah left after that...
