Hyacinths, An Award and Tagged!

Pin It Now!

These are the hyacinths I have growing on my kitchen windowsill. I have even more growing to the left on these. It looks like Spring has sprung in my kitchen. As you can see, my kitchen window looks out over the parking lot of my apartment so it's nice to have flowers on the windowsill to enhance my view.
I was given this award by Rhondi ~ Rose Colored Glasses. I love the header on her and white with wicker! Thank you Rhondi!

It just snowed here - and no windowsill that the cat can't reach, so no hyacinths! Enjoying yours vicariously. :)
Would you come look at my kitchen and chew on it?

Angela said...

What a sweet reward:-).
Great tag too.
Oh how I love Carmel. When we visited a few years ago, I told my husband how I would love to live there:-).
Have a wonderful weekend!!

Holly said...

I'm not sure how I found my way here, but I love your blog! You have great decorating ideas. The hyacinths are lovely. I grew up in the Bay Area, so some of your posts have made me homesick!

Mary said...

Hi Cindy, love the hyacinths! And guess what? I look forward to seeing your home in Romantic Country magazine, too! ;)

Cindy - I have to agree with you on Martha's Vineyard.. obviously.

I loved Gilmore Girls, I still watch it in re-runs on the ABC Family channel.. and I have the entire DVD set.

I adore reading the tags but cannot find the time to come out and play...just barely enough time to be creative enough to blog once a week...heck, I spend all of my time on my own favorites bar commenting!!!

I have some of your favorite favorites
