Have you thought about how you would like to welcome family and guests into your home when the spring season begins? It's so enjoyable to put your imagination to good use and see what arrangement you can come up with to spruce up your front door and entryway! I think we need a trip to the local hobby store, such as Michael's or Hobby Lobby!

Don't forget to always have fresh flowers in your kitchen! The aroma of roses, lilacs , lavender and lemons just make the heart of your home a lovely place to enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon cup of tea! Make your life beautiful.......
