Spring Decorating

Spring has sprung here at Love and Life at Leadora.  I realized yesterday that I'd better get decorating, because if I didn't finish soon, the Easter bunny was going to come and go!  Anyway, it wouldn't be a holiday without my corner cabinet being decorated, so that's where I started...

And then, of course, I had to put out my Costco Mr. and Mrs. Bunny....

Finally, I finished with a spring quote on the chalkboard...

The one good thing about waiting so late to decorate is that I won't get too tired of the decorations.  Plus, they won't get dusty either!  What about you?  Are you decorating for spring or will the  Easter bunny be skipping your house?

15 Ways to Tie a Scarf

If you've been reading this little blog for awhile, you know by now that I enjoy baking, decorating, and crafting.  I bet that you didn't now that I love wearing scarves!

Wearing a scarf makes dressing so much easier.   A scarf, cardigan, t shirt and jeans is my go to outfit. I always feel put together when I wrap that scarf around.  In fact, a scarf is kind of like a cherry on top of a sundae!

One of the best things about scarves is that you can tie them all different ways.  Not sure how to tie a scarf?  Check out this great this great website, 15 Chic and Creative Ways to Tie Scarves

Chalkboard Art

I remember when I first started reading blogs, chalkboards were all the rage.  MacGyver husband made me several, and I still love them (and him!).   Recently, I came across a true chalkboard artist, Dana Tanamachi.  Check out this great video!

I never like the way my own writing looks on chalkboards.  I think this falls in the same category as you never like your own hair either!   Anyway, Dana Tanamachi inspired me to try once again...

This chalkboard hangs in my dining room at Love and Life at Leadora.  I chose to write an Irish proverb for March.   The best part of all this?  When it starts to bug me, I can just erase it!  Now go write something whimsical on your chalkboard!
