Why have I got the house looking so pretty? It's in honor of the month of May, of course.
The flowering trees are blooming in the neighborhood, my rose bushes have started to leaf out (the beauties on the kitchen table are from the grocery store) and these bright colors make the whole house look happy and welcoming.
The fabric (Patchwork by Vivian Gomez) I used on the table makes it look like I spent hours quilting complimentary pieces of fabric together, but is actually one printed piece! I bought a few yards and serged the edges to make an easy tablecloth. The periwinkle blue polka dot place mats are plastic and help me to prolong the time that the tablecloth is clean and fresh.
If your kitchen table is a little dull after a long Winter, pull out some bright linens and see what a difference it can make.
