Spring Vignettes and Samantha's Nursery Pics!
Spring has sprung at The Patriot Homeplace! I have been enjoying the beautiful weather we have been having! Hearing the birds chirp, and being able to leave the windows open to have the fresh breeze blow in. I have been in a light and bright mood lately. I was inspired to bring some of my white dishes out that I have never used for display before, to make a spring vignette in my kitchen. I am really enjoying it! Here are a few pictures of the touches of spring we have around our home right now. Notice something new in the Dining room? I bought the little cupboard from the shop I work at, Simple Country Treasures. As soon as I saw it, I could picture some of my pewter pieces in it. For Valentines Day, we surprised the kids with fron row seats to Disney On Ice! The show was last week the kids were so excited, though they not look it in the first picture they really were! Haha! Hurry up and take the pic mom! Samantha is big Princess Tiana fan. She asked to dress as Tiana for the show. I found the perfect dress on ebay. It shipped from England, when it arrived it had Royal Mail stamped on the package. She was SURE it had come Royal Mail from a castle in England. Patriot dressed as Buzz Lightyear. When Buzz came out to do his part of the show he came over to say hi to Patriot. It made his night! The show started and this was the last picture I got, my battery died!!! I missed the most precious picture too! When Tiana and Prince Naveen finished their dance, they ended up right in front of us. Before we knew what was happening Prince Naveen pulled out a rose and Princess Tiana handed it to Samantha. She was so starstruck she could barely move, but managed to take the rose and say thank you. It was a classic magical Disney moment. The front row seats were worth every penny! Ready for the show! I am still preparing for Samantha's surprise big girl room makeover. It is really coming together and I can't wait to get it done! I thought this would be a good post to share pictures of her nursery. When I found out I was having a girl I was so excited! I had always wanted to do a girl's nursery, and I knew I wanted it to be pink and girly! I love pink and luckily so does Samantha. I have to add, that the color of her walls are not the Pepto Bismol pink it appears to be in some of the pictures. It is more of a pale shade. We used Laura Ashley Pink Plaster 1 paint. I chose a Shabby Chic bunny theme for her nursery. The picture on top of the chifferobe is of my great grandmother holding my mother as a baby. It is one of my most favorite pictures.
