Tip toe~

through the tulips!

Our local Whole Foods had a special on beautiful tulip bunches from Virginia, and I couldn't resist!!  They add the perfect touch of springtime to our home.  I also purchased some ranunculus and a bunch of sunflowers (Trader Joes) earlier in the week.  We also added a living basil plant to our kitchen, it is a bunch of basil minus the dirt (you keep the roots moist).  I used an old pickle jar filled with water to keep ours, and we have been using it at mealtimes this week.  On fresh pizza, in salad, and tonight on grilled chicken breasts with orange and lemon drizzled with a bit of olive oil.

It is prom weekend, so we will be busy!  Will post pics on Monday.  But, for now enjoy a touch of spring!

You can spy another new accessory from West Elm on the mantle-love this candle holder!

I love the tangerine color of these!

Yellow-my all time favorite color for flowers and our Spring Chalkboard!

Sunflowers and Living Basil-yum!
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!  We are praying the rain stays north of here...prom is just not much fun in the rain!!

Yellow and white tulips are my favorite. I just love them and can't wait to pick them from my garden.

The tulips are beautiful. A nice reminder that Spring is upon us, at least in warmer regions.
