I love ROSEMARY, as you may surmise from this post.  My neighbor had a very large rosemary bush in need of trimming.  I volunteered for the job and in exchange received the cuttings.  I made lots of swags, gave some to friends and still had plenty to place around the house. 
I transported the cuttings in two trips riding my trusty old 3 wheeler.
 Rosemary looks right at home in an old dough bowl.
 Rosemary looks sweet on chairs.

 A swag on the front door is so welcoming.
Just a single branch looks wonderful on a white slip covered ottoman or on a gift.

Rosemary on the hearth.
Rosemary next to white candles.
 Rosemary adds freshness in the kitchen...
 in a bathroom...

hanging in a hallway...
 or lying in a basket.
I like pansies, too!  These are blooming in our mailbox/flower box.
Come back soon to see our home featured in Cottage Style Magazine (Release Date:  March 6, 2012!)  Fellow blogger, Elyse Major, wrote the article, so be sure to visit her post soon at Tinkered Treasures!

Scattered Hearts

 I heart hearts!  

In line with my rule for simplicity in 2012, I'm scattering a few hearts around our home for Valentine's Day.  
No elaborate decorating this year.  
Just enough color to celebrate the holiday of love!
