Velvet Mushrooms in a Blue Enamel Roasting Pan

I am so ready for spring! 
   The weather has been mild here in Eastern New Mexico and it has made me anxious for spring to arrive.

Valentine Banner

I have a mirror over the sofa in the family room that I wanted to add a little Valentine decor to,    but not cover up much of the reflection of the rest of the room.

Touches of Farmhouse decor in the Milk Glass Cabinet

Cleaning the built in display cabinet is quite a job but I am always so pleased with the end result.    H helped me so it took half the time......about 2 hours.      He is really a much better cleaner than I am and way more careful with the pretties!

Valentine Tree

Well,  the tree's won out! 
  I have been debating over whether or not to leave the two  white slim trees up in the kitchen after Christmas      I removed all the Christmas ornaments this morning  .......and the next thing I knew,   I was filling them with Valentine decor!

Adding Sparkle to the area above the Range Hood

I added some sparkle to the area over the range hood by hanging a mirror on it.    I just love the new look! 
I have a big chandelier hanging over the island that's across from the range.   The mirror reflects all that wonderful chandelier light plus most of the walls around the kitchen.

Silver White Winter Farmhouse Vingette

I created a winter farm on the kitchen pass thru this morning.     It's hard not to include some touches of spring in my winter vignettes.   We've had some cold days recently,  but the forecast for the next 10 days is mid 50's and high 60's.

Winter Kitchen

This cold I've got is really getting on my nerves......can't get anything done but cough!     After I share the progress I've made putting away Christmas in the kitchen    I think I'll take a long winters! 
 It was 60 degrees a couple of days ago here in Eastern New Mexico    but the last two days haven't got above 10 degrees with the wind chill.   Brrrrrr......

Woodland Christmas Porch

The weather here in Eastern New Mexico is still pretty mild this time of year,    so on most nights we can sit on the porch and enjoy hot chocolate and goodies after dinner.

Christmas Entry

I went with the pinks that I love so much in the entry when I decorated it for Christmas .........but I couldn't help but add a pop of red to the mix!
