Top O' The Morning To You!

I was so inspired by all the amazing tabletop displays last week I found another area to add St. Paddy's Day cheer. The top of my dryer!  (Does it count as a tabletop??) One of the links from last week was to "Today's Fabulous Find" Blog, she creates wonderful subway art (and let's us download it).  I printed out the one I liked best, framed it and added it to the vignette. 

A Boston Fern in a thrifted pot, a Leprechaun Hat plant pick, my bottles of Laundry Accoutrements on a thrifted silver tray with  their (e-bay find) decanter tags, and the shamrock runner I made several years ago.  Makes tossing in a load (or 10) so much more fun!  I just noticed the tear in my Rabbit border -- weird, I go into that room a gagillion times a day, how did I not see that????? 
Close up of those lovely silver tags.  I have since ordered 8 more from the same seller, after a little mishap with cooking oils in the kitchen, all the oil is labeled NOW!!
How does something so simple bring so much pleasure?  That's why I love shopping the house and using what I have.  I always feel so frugal and creative after (I hope I'm not the only one!)

AND NOW . . . .(changing the subject)

In celebration of the beauty of Northern California's weather today . . .

My Daffodils are blooming! I have 3 other varieties, these are the early ones.
And so are the Iris.  The rest of yard still looks a little bare.  I need to get more mulch soon.  Ugh, that's one job I really dislike.  I like the results, just not the shoveling and wheel barrow loads, then rake, rake, rake.  But, I do enjoy the finished product, so . . . .I'll add that to the "To Do" List.

As always, thank you so much for stopping by!  I love the company and I would be so honored if you would consider following my blog!  I'm joining Marty at "A Stroll Thru Life" for Tabletop Tuesdays and Courtney at "French Country Cottage" for Feathered Nest Friday   Why don't you join us to? It's always so much fun and the inspiration out there in Blogland is priceless!  I constantly find new ideas.


PS I have a question, so many of you have the blogs you follow on the sidebar.  How do you do that??  I can't figure it out to save my life.  Well, if my life was really in jeopardy I would probably work harder, I'm just saying . . If someone would let me know I would really appreciate it. 

****EDITED****  I FIGURED it out!!  I added ALL the inspiring Blogs I stalk visit often to my sidebar!
