Feeling Kinda Fernney

Is “Fernney” even a word? Me thinks no. But here’s the deal …

I love having fresh flowers and greenery on my front porch. It just finishes the house. Back in May I bought two beautiful baskets to hang. They were stunners … I had neighbours asking me where I got them they were so fabulous. Then it got hot and we were on holidays and, up until this morning, I had this hanging:

Aren’t they sad little things?

So I popped by one of my favourite flower markets today to see what was there. I’m not ready to make the full transition to fall flowers and it seemed silly to be buying summer flowers at this point in the season so I came up with a compromise …

A little leafy, Fernney goodness! Check it out:

Ferns! Aren’t they pretty?!

What do you do when you are in need of a fresh look and it is between seasons?


Mother’s Day (psst … it’s all about the flowers)

I love flowers. Love, love, love fresh cut flowers in the house and it’s a rare moment when there aren’t any in mine.

Tulips are one of my favs kind of like these:

A mixed bouquet of beauty that a dear friend brought to me yesterday is currently brightening my dining room table.

So … in case you were wondering what to get all your special Mom’s for Mother’s Day … the best, most winning option is always a fresh bouquet of flowers.

My own Mom is never without fresh flowers in her house and on her table. Fresh flowers are one of the many things we have in common. My husband jokes that Mum and I think with the same brain sometimes. Her only downfall is that she likes stinky lilies 🙂

Happy Mother’s Day to my own Mom, my mother-in-law and my dear grandmother and of course, all the other fabulous mothers out there!

Have you bought flowers yet for all the special Mums in your life?

See What Sarah Sees: Spring At Home

I love decorating for Spring and Easter. The fresh, happy colours are a welcome change from winter. And, it’s a sign that long, warm sunny days are right around the corner.

For this installment of “See What Sarah Sees” I thought I’d take you on a tour to see some of Spring in my house.

Bunny Rabbits … these guys have been with me for years and I giggle every time I put them out.

Eggs … Nothing says Easter and Spring like eggs. There is huge variation of colours, shapes and sizes –  here are a few that I have put out around my house.

Flowers … I love flowers. I have fresh flowers in the house all the time – every week a new batch! Tulips are my favourite but as long as it is a colourful bouquet I’m smiling.

Do you see Spring in your house?
