somehow it was just the inspiration i needed for clearing the
last of the christmas hanger~on~ers i hadn't put away yet.
to make...pistachio poppy bread.
sometimes i am resistant to bringing out the next seasons
decor because i love looking and remembering all the
memories made in the last season but it is february...time
to move on from christmas.
nandina berries in a hobnob pale pink vase set in a wooden pedestal
bowl with marble red hearts made the centerpiece on the dining room table.
a vintage square cloth laid diagonal with frames in hot pink, white and black placed flat
with various things that remind me of love...like hearts, flowers, birds, butterflies, & candles.
my oldest daughter rachel and her family were there too.
with help from most everyone we had a lovely meal and
lots of good conversation.
it's always great when you have good friends over and you
i haven't been able to throw away a couple of
my lovely white pumpkins from thanksgiving...so i
dressed them up with hearts and a ribbon.
