A few photos...

On a day when everything is pink and red and roses, I went with a different color scheme and loved it. Did I mention that I sometimes like to do things differently from what most people are doing? It's that little bit of the rebel in me...

Do you see that cute heart-shaped mirror?! A gift from my sweet husband!! I'll show you the other gift in a different post....still have to take a picture of it! 

We are having a beautifully sunny morning with mild temperatures and a hint of spring in the air. I hope you are all having a warm and sunny day!!


  1. Ooooooo...I love your table setting! Especially that heart shaped platter--is it silver or pewter?
    Beautiful; everything looks ready for Spring, with windows opened and the sound of birds chirping!

    From the hinterlands, where snow still rules...


  2. Beautiful post Silke..i am really drawn to the silver little plate? in pic #3..wow..i am enchanted by it. I have an affinity for silver-esque things!It just feels really special!!

    Wonderful arrangements...it is such fun to decorate! Yay..a rebel kindred..beautiful!

  3. ~different is a beautiful thing!!! we too do things a wee bit off the beaten path and it makes for a far more special moment when it is created from our hearts and minds...i love the freshness and delicate feel of your table...nothing like fresh flowers to brighten up everything...and such a sweet mirror your love has given...enjoy your warmth and may your love for one another always flourish in the most delightful of ways...warm wishes and brightest blessings~

  4. I, too, love the heart-shaped silver tray (or dish). And the flowers are so bright & cheerful! Here in Maine, there's still lots of snow on the ground, but the sun is shining and the sky is making a lovely blue background for the green pines. I heard some birds chirping yesterday so I guess there really is a spring in our future.

  5. Liebe Silke,

    ganz herzlichen Dank für die wunderschöne Post.
    Wir haben uns beide sehr darüber gefreut.

    Alles Liebe
    Angela und Elisabeth

  8. Silke, your photos are a breath of fresh air. I love whites and creams. I think your display is beautiful.
    It is sunny here and Spring has been teasing us for several days. It can't come soon enough. I am tired of looking at browns and greys!
    Have a lovely day.
