The Eames-style lounge and ottoman

I love mid-century anything and have been looking at the Eames chair and ottoman for a while. I know my husband also loves that style, so I thought it would be a nice chair for him to relax in.

Mid-century light fixture for the kitchen

I finally found the perfect light fixture to put over my island. I wanted a brass mid-century swag light, and I found it on ebay -- as usual:-) These can be pricey, but I found this one and made an offer of $28, then purchased when the seller countered back at $32, which is a bargain.

Succulent Planter Box

I have been without a long box on the dining table since I sold my big one last year, so I decided it was time to do something similar again.

Franciscan Ivy on the porch

Last week I mentioned that I had set two tables for a ladies' tea but got no photos, so I recreated both as luncheon tables on the porch using each setting and shared the Noritake Chandova table. Today, I'm sharing the Franciscan Ivy paired with hot pink.

Dining alfresco with the Noritake Chandova

I set two tables last week for a ladies' tea, but because I also entertained, I did not get any photos. So...I decided to set up luncheon tables at home with both settings out on the porch.

Azaleas and rhododendron

It's *that* time of year when the azaleas start blooming. Although, I have several varieties and colors that bloom over the course of several weeks, sometimes everything aligns and most of the azaleas and rhododendron bloom at the same time.
