Need a bit of Sunshine

First I want to give a heartfelt Prayer for all the people going thru the blizzard  conditions on the East Coast. I pray you all stay safe and stay at home as much as possible.You all need some sunshine  just Like we do here in the Northwest.
We have had so much rain here.I'm not complaining just stating facts. Everybody said it rains alot in Seattle and I have to be very thankful it is not snow. but a little
 bit of sunshine every once in a while would surely be nice to offset the constant rain.So I created a table that would let me imagine sunshine.

I received these teapot napkin rings from a friend over a year ago and just haven't had the right time to use them. But when I came up with this tables color theme they were my inspiration.I layered cobalt blue on top of yellow chargers that totally look like the sun.



Yellow and blue always go together like the sun and sky

I combined yellow and blue flatware to offset the blue glassware


Yellow and blue candles make you feel warm and welcome especially on a cold dreary rainy day.

I added little yellow beads that represents the little spots of sunshine that occasionally pop thru

Pretty yellow flowers to brighten any day.



I used bowls for the centerpiece instead of my usual cake plates

Well I hope I brightened some of your day. wishing you all a very safe week. try to capture little sparkles of sunshine wherever you can.

Soon We will welcome Spring and all that beautiful Sunshine. So find yours whether in a smile,a giggle from a child, the kindness of a stranger. a beautiful quote from the Bible, a sticky note from a coworker with a happy smile on it,a wave from someone on a bike.Find your little bit of sunshine wherever you can  and hold onto that sparkle it gave you all day.In these long days of winter we need to find our own little pockets of sunshine. they are truly gifts to enjoy. Be warm,be safe.come by and join us at the blogs where we are all seeking little Joys from life like at Between Naps on the porch, Home is where the boat is , Funky Junk Interiors, Ivy and Elephants. pink polka dot and so many more.Have a great week .Love Susie

  3. Love the blue and yellow! The colors that can't fail at making you smile for sure. The napkin rings are so cute, I have to agree about using them all of the time, they are just too darn cute to stay in a drawer. Curiously enough we must have been on the same brain waves, I through a bright blue and yellow tablecloth onto the kitchen table yesterday (a blue background with a bunch of yellow sunflowers in the middle and along the hem line). If all of my sunflower plates were not packed up I think I would drag them out to make a cheerful table too. Just the thought of digging through all of those heavy boxes in storage makes my back ache (ouch!!!)
