Blog Update 1/14/2020

Tuesday, January 14, 2020

Happy Tuesday, My Lovelies!  I finally finished putting way the rest of our Christmas decor over the weekend.

It feels nice to have a clean, uncluttered space!
Our breakfast room has very little on the table, and that's okay with me.

I updated our living centerpiece by removing the cyclamen and poinsettia, and adding a lily and another fern.

I'm loving the sunshine because we haven't seen much of it lately.

I added the pretty frosty fern

So far the lilies haven't bothered anyone's allergies yet!

We brought the side table back in after we took down the tree.  It's nice to have things back to normal!

My main reasoning for popping in today is to share what I've been working on that will be live here on my blog tomorrow:

I hope you will come back tomorrow!  The giveaway is fantastic!

Finlay wants you to come back tomorrow, too!

Until next time...

  2. Hi Ricki Jill,
    Love the color of the calla lilies. Very pretty. I love the sunshine streaming in your windows too. Makes it feel so much warmer. I love your traveling tote posts you girls do. Cannot wait to see that post. Happy New Week.

  3. Everything looks so fresh and pretty, Ricki Jill! I love the ferns, you've inspired me to go find one. I need a little spring right about now! Happy New Year, my friend!

  5. Doesn't it feel bright and clean once Christmas decor is put away? Love your tray vignette!

  6. It looks beautiful and happy, RJ! The ferns are so pretty. And you're right about the sun -- it has been rare these days! Glad to see it is in your world!

  7. There isn't an MC design that Miss Square Peggy doesn't compliment. Enjoy!
