Tulips Surprise

Over the weekend, I was surprised by my fellas with a bouquet of gorgeous tulips!  They headed out to visit the library, which turned out to be closed.  These two thoughtful guys decided to pick up lunch and flowers to bring home.  I loved the big smiles on my guys' faces as they presented the tulips even more than I loved receiving them. 
The spring sprucing of the rooms is still a work in progress, as my brain is visualizing all sorts of ideas, but I thought I'd share this quick room pick-me-up with the tulips.  The latest Jeanne D'Arc Living magazine is so full of inspiration, I can't help but attempt a little 'French Chic' style in my rooms.  Hope you enjoy!
I'm linking to Jennifer Rizzo's spring party today, and looking forward to seeing more spring views over there.

More tulips in glass soda bottles, and pink candles to match:

Red tulips in a rustic pitcher fit right into the kitchen:

Have a good week!
