Putting Away the Holiday

We spent some time this week rearranging the kitchen shelves.

And because we always love a little "Alice in Wonderland" around here, we arranged the teacups in the glass cabinet.










I want to thank you for all the lovely comments on the last post. I am trying to respond to each and everyone of you.  Have any of you experienced being  locked out of responding to your visitors even though you are logged into your blog? Well, it seems I can only respond to three at a time.









This lovely towel came from a local designer's shop, and it's a store that I visited for the first time. I love to support small businesses, but they don't have a webpage. 










I love neutrals, but I also like just  a bit of color sometimes.
The small colored bowls are here for now.









Oh, and my spouse hung this print here, and moved the oil painting to another spot.
It's not a good photo, but it looks like old toile with cows in a romantic setting.
I am actually still cleaning up from the holidays, because of the ten days we spent watching an international piano competition. Now, it is back to school. I've been wanting to create something, and I love wreaths.  I am so inspired by Elisabeth's paper rose wreath here.
And just so you know that I read your blogs and love the pretty photos, I keep this heart page.
It is its own page separate my blog following on bloglovin.
I love this feature, and use it often as you can see.
Thank you for all your lovely visits.

  17. Hello,
    Yes, I too, have had a hard time responding and commenting to blogs. It tells me I am not logged in, but I am. ;-)
    I love the fresh look you have shared with us today.
    We also cleaned and put up some new items. It is always refreshing to clean up and change things up a bit. :-)

  21. The teacups and the clock look lovely in your glass cupboard. It's nice to change things around a little after the decorations come down. I'm not quite at that stage yet, still undecorating here!
    Have a nice weekend...

  25. Your blog is by far one of the prettiest on the internet, Su. Your quiet grace shows in everything you do. Love coming here, my friend. xo ~ Nancy P.S. I meant to mention in my comment on your latest post that I have a copy of Jean d' Arc Living. It's such an inspiring magazine.

    1. I just say this. Nancy, that is such a kind thing to say, and it makes me feel good to know that is what I am accomplishing. I'm excited by it. Dore, said other issues are even better. Next month, if that same person is selling her used copies, I'll pick up a couple of older ones. The place I went is sort of a vintage, flee market and they are open only one week every month. xoox

  27. That little snippet of your fridge was such a tease! More, more, MORE, please!

    P.S. Your last comment on my blog for some reason went to spam and I accidentally deleted it. Sorry, but thank you for the visit!

    1. Thank you. I probably should take some photos with the new camera, but I'm still not so good with it. I definitely photo it by March, because it will be its birthday. That's okay in regards to the comments. I might have to do something different, because I even had trouble responding to my own blog. Whatever changes they made to blogspot have probably improved things, but messed other things up.

  28. Gosh, Su, I have missed so much. So sorry. Our house flooded, yet, again. Even after the repairs. Argh...insurance won't pay so I have been drowning in that. Lovely post as always dearie! xo Jen
