This past week I have been loving all of the pink, white and yellow blossom trees appearing all over town!
It has been one of my favorite things ever since I was a little girl. It means Spring is here and the days are going to be a little more gorgeous.
A few days ago I grabbed my cutters and headed out in the garden and trimmed a few white blossom branches off of my plum tree!
I put them in my tallest glass vase, it is so perfect. If you have a blossom tree of your own maybe it is time for you to go get your cutters as well!
Look how cute and unique tall blossom branches can make a room:

My fruit trees have the smallest white blossoms. Today my tree in the front started blooming light pink blossoms, I can’t wait to have a vase of all pink tomorrow.

I just thought you would love this picture tagged on. Can you imagine how beautiful this would be to see in person. I am guessing this is what Washington D.C. is looking like at this time of year, Amazing!
I am so in Love with everything about the room designed by Windsor Smith!
Look how everything is so over sized and it really works. If you take the furniture out of the room, you can see how small it actually is. But lighten up the wall with white paint and add in dark contrasting colors like the Dark Leather Chesterfield sofa. It makes the room feel bigger then it is in real life.
I wanted to really share this photo with you to chat about the large pillows used on the couch. I am currently in the middle of adding a few new updates to my home, for the summer. I am doing many new pillows everywhere. I am loving the look of the large pillows. Of course you can not pull this off with any couch. It needs to be a couch with a firm straight back.
The pillows don’t have too much pattern, all the color blend in together nicely and have some velvets for soft texture.
I wouldn’t dare to forget about mentioning that amazing ottoman, I am in the middle of getting a similar coral ottoman for our living room.
What do you think about the over sized pillows? Would you do it?
My favorite places for feather down pillow inserts:

This week I came across some really cute Oil Cloth Fabric that everyone needs to know about!
Oil Cloth Fabric is a laminate and cleanable fabric. I am going to get some for a outdoor table cloth for all the daily lunches my children and I have on the patio in the summer time, just so it will be a bit cuter out there. I have also used it before for children play mats to place under tables when its art time with all of the play dough and paint.

I am writing today’s post while watching The Bachelor Finale! With the rest of the women in America…
Normal people watch the actors and the scenes in TV shows and movies. I on the other hand always scope out the designs of the set. I don’t mean too, it just happens. Well I was pleasantly surprised to spot the VILMIE FIGUR pillow in the living room when Ben is chatting with his mother and sister.
Guess what the pillow is from Ikea! I was just there this weekend and I almost bought it because it was pretty amazing. It had a really nice texture to it and the pattern will totally go with what I have been working on lately for my living room. Guess what this pillow is only $10!!!
above:I tried getting a still photo of the actual pillow on the couch, but this was the best I could do. (Sorry you can’t even see it in the picture! Trust me it’s there.)
Really cute right!? Another lesson, to always listen to my instincts, I should of just bought it, because now here I am dreaming about it and writing a whole post on it!
Thanks for reading!
P.S. Oh yes, save one there for me!
