~cabbages and roses~

Hello my friends!

Can I just tell you....
{I'm sorry in advance if you are in the NE!}

that we have the most amazing....

~sunshine~

here is the Pacific NW!!

it has been rainy & cold for so long......and now 60 degrees
and clear blue sky....ahhhhhhh.....

can you say major Spring Fever?????

So on that note....

here's a little Cabbages and Roses
sunshine for your soul!


I know that I am WAY late in discovering this
amazing company!!!

but, I did just recently discover
their website


and their photography is just
breathtaking!

not to mention their fantastic fabric selection!

just some yummy stuff to make you smile....


or drool....

I am really loving the white shelves...
and considering changing my stainless steel to something similar.

I seriously can't wait to cut some blooms like these
from my garden!

and have a little garden party~

or get in my jeep like this
and head out for a day of junkin picnic with my family~

{just day dreaming....;o)}


I'm off to move some dirt around in the garden....

G'eve Shellagh ~ You all deserve a break out there, which is rare enough to see the sun ... so enjoy it while you can ... chuckle! I never missed the d(ark) d(ank) d)reary d(ismal) d(ays).

We are enjoying immensely the 30" of snow from the weekend & are getting hammered today with another 20"+ here in MD. It is a spectacular sight to see ... so keep on blowing your storms our way! TY

What beautiful presentation pictures. Enjoying the decors.

Happy Valentine's
Have a beautiful week!
Hugs, Marydon

Thanks for such a sunny and warm post. I am glad you are having nice weather there. It's like a breath of fresh air, to know it is nice somewhere in the US. Go and have some fun moving your dirt around and plant an extra flower for me :)
Have a blessed week.

Shellagh, so delighted you had a sunny day and hope you got a lot accomplished in your garden today! Well, I've not heard of C&R, guess I'm out of the loop, but I'll surely be taking a look...that's for the insight.

Dear Shellagh,
found your blog recently and love your pics and way of writing ! The first picture is my favourite one, it really invites you to dream. I will check the website you´ve mentioned and have a look what they offer.

Mee too love Cabbages and Roses, I was in fact going to make a post about them soon. I love the faded fabric, and everything is so cheerful, crisp and bright. Like summer days!

Shellagh - I have to confess... usually my eye will jump to one thing in one photo and I'm in love... there's not one thing that stands out more than the other in these though - it's all FANTASTICALLY GORGEOUS!!! Thank You for sharing! I'm going back to drool all over again!!!

Have a beautiful day!!!

Hi Shellagh, thank you for visiting my blog and the lovely words you left behind...

Cabbages and Roses has a wonderful offering of lovely things, thank you for sharing them with us.

The sun is also shining here, but a far cry from the milder weather you are enjoying....it's in the teens here.

Have a lovely afternoon - blessings - Julie

First, I'm so jealous that you're off to garden. I am happy for you though. We've got a snowy day here. I love Cabbage and Roses fabrics too. They look so well-worn and soft--not to mention the lovely patterns. Thanks for this sunny post. Betsy
