Ladies Home Journal .... brings the spring....

NOTE: Excuse the construction as I work to make this blog BEAUTIFUL! It may look a little odd for the next few days. I appreciate your patience!

A quick post here as I am short on time, but long on inspiration!

I purchased the latest Ladies Home Journal mag recently...for one reason, and one reason only:

Mariska Hargitay aka Detective Olivia Benson graced the cover. If you don't watch Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, well, I am sorry. I heart Olivia Benson...and I bet Mariska is pretty cool too.

Little did I know that Detective Benson would also bring me several fantastic spring and easter tablescape ideas! I will now share....DUN-DUN. (That was Law & Order music)

 Tablescape #1...Easter eggs in nests...perched on cake stands...with branches?! It keeps getting better :)

Close up of the eggs...click HERE for the Ladie's Home journal tutorial on how to make these fab eggs...

Lately I have been in LOVE with wheatgrass ... I love how natural it looks, and it's perfect for Easter!

 How cute are these Easter bunny placecards? The template is HERE!

The grass napkin rings are perfect for any spring table setting...

Finally...the perfect Spring welcome? How about my best friend Kalle's new baby girl Loah...born just a few days ago with a full head of gorgeous hair! Welcome to the world Loah, I love you already...

Hope you are having a great, spring-y week!


  1. Loah! Love the name:-)

    What great ideas here! May snatch them up for my mother's day brunch!

  2. I just bought that magazine to! In LOVE with the tablescape and that baby is adorable : )


  3. Too bad you can not buy this magazine because I live in Spain. I'd buy just for the beautiful Mariska. I love it.

  4. What a beautiful little girl! The Husband and I used to watch all L&O series (except the NY series - to dark and gritty), but it just got too ridiculous and political. I do sometimes long for a good old SVU episode though. Thanks for sharing these great ideas!

  5. What a cutie-pie!
    I love the wheat grass too. I'm so ready for spring!

    PS I love Olivia Benson almost as much as I love Stabler!

  6. Building a garden shed today is easy once you have chosen a design that meets the needs and desires you are seeking. With a solid design or blue print, you can build a durable shed that will last a lifetime.  wooden shed
