Centerpiece of the month~ May

Luckily, while I have been living la dolce vita in Italy, my friends have been sending in their centerpieces for the month of May. I am happy to be able to share them with all y'all. First, a centerpiece that appeared on our table in Sienna.



Krista who is In and Out of the Garden posted the most wonderful centerpiece of roses from her garden. She has that green thumb we all yearn for ~ oh, the sweet smell.

At The Bunnies Bungalow DebraK brought her hot pink tulips in from the cold. A gardener at heart.


Rosies Wimsy's posted a lovely centerpiece for Mother's Day, where she say's 'do the things that make you happy, allow joy to overtake you and give you peace.'















Lori Lynn shows us how to Taste With the Eyes. She helped host a tea to celebrate Mothers and Daughters. The centerpieces were on tables outside- overlooking the Pacific. I can't think of a more idyllic setting.



Speaking of the sweet life... at the House In The Woods there is breakfast in the garden. That is how Britt-Arnhild celebrates spring in Norway.
Nature Girl has the most poetic way of looking at everyday things. She wrote... "Allow your imagination to take flight as it never dies no matter how many layers of life and work we pile on top of it"

I think the centerpieces this month all reflect the 'Sweet Life'.
La Dolce Vita!
Ciao y'all~
Sandi
