Happy Valentine's Day!

Tuesday, February 14, 2012



What a difference a little trim makes.  Over the weekend I picked up some ribbon from Joann's and stitched it onto a pair of linen curtains.  It really makes this neutral room pop!  This is a table by our front door and I try to keep a fresh branch or flowers (this time camellias) from the garden here as a welcome home.  It only seemed fitting to use an owl vase here.  We have a pair of Barred owls in our neighborhood and they have been calling for each other in the early evenings.  The first time my son and I saw them we felt like we were in a Harry Potter movie.  It was incredible!  Their call sounds like "who cooks for you" and you can hear it right here.

Happy Valentine's Day!

XO,

  6. Yes, loving your new picture and that owl vase is too adorable. We have a couple owls on our street as well! They perch on houses opposite one another and call back and forth...I like the sound, but now I'll have to pay closer attention! Janell

  14. The trim is a nice touch, Rene! Our camellias are blooming, too. You've inspired me to cut a few and bring them in. So pretty. I really love that owl vase. I wonder if I could still find one. It is so perfect and welcoming for an entryway. We have an owl outside our bedroom window and I like listening to him at night. Happy Valentine's Day to you!
