Once the Christmas decor was removed
the table was bare-

what could I make that I could look at every day
without critiquing-
is it too big, does the color work, how soon will I tire of it
all these questions spun in my head

and then it struck me
what could be more uplifting
 than a lovely bunch of tulips

"Spring is in the air at Chez Rose"!!
Take care, gotta fly- Claire


  1. The tulips are perfect and I love your table color!

  7. Hi Claire,

    Wanted to say thanks for stopping by and for becoming my newest follower! I love the tulips too......although I know winter is far from being over, we are having some spring like days here in PA which causes one to become anxious for the outdoors. I'm seeing flower boxes on my porches!

    I am adding myself to your list of followers too! Thanks again and have a great weekend.

  8. Hi Claire, so glad u stopped by and visited my Dining room. I dont usually do alot of Christmas decorating, there's usually too much chaos for that. I thought i was the only one who critiqued myself constantly, LOL....Fresh flowerers are always perfect!!....Bonnie

  9. Oh Tulips they are gorgeous!!!!

    Thanks for your visit

  10. I love tulips they are my favorite spring flower I think! The red looks so pretty too I usually stick to white pink or purple...but the red is really pretty so I might have to buy some myself! Thanks for following me at Eleventh House I am following you now too! I love blogging!

  11. Ooo! Tulips are a great far I have just modified my Christmas table, I got a live poinsettia that I just love and the foil around the pot is silver, so I just switched out some of the red and green stuff around it for more silver (a few painted silver pine cones and silver tray) and made it more of 'winter' table...and since our first snow of the winter just arrived it fits right in :)


Thanks for your kind comments-love to hear from you!
