Oh wow...your new spring decor looks eerily similar to what I just did all over my home yesterday! Great minds think alike. Enjoy ;-) ~Tera Knox

So gorgeous. And certainly lovely! These look like something out of a magazine. What wonderful spaces you must have.

PS - The new, wider format and header are terrific!

Love love love it! I used your previous blog about planting grass and it's cute too. But it looks different than yours. I used rye grass. Is that what you used? You're looks sturdier than mine.

Also love the new header.

Heidi said...

proudgrits~ Thanks for the link... I'll check it out!

dancebythelight~ I used wheat grass. I had leftover wheat berries that I purchased last year in the bulk section in the natural foods section of a local grocery store. They sprouted right away! I love the the look of wheat grass, but other grasses are fresh and green, too.

The new look is great. I don't know why but the wider format makes it difficult to read.. for me it causes me to scroll. Is there a setting I need to change?

thanks for the wheat grass ideas. Lovely!

Sarah said...

Love it!
So simple, but very beautiful.
When can you come to my house?

Heasleye said...

I have a friend whose computer was having trouble with my own wider blog as well. We had her check her screen resolution under control panel and then display and then settings. I think it's best set no smaller than 1280x1024.

Heidi - I hope it's OK that I chimed in here with that! I hope it's helpful!

Heidi said...

Elaine~ Thanks for chiming in... I don't mind at all!

Glenda~ My husband was giving me a bad time about the width... he knows that it won't fit on some screens. I'll play around with it and make it a little narrower.

Lora said...

LOVE your new look, Heidi! Your photography is so beautiful!

Ruth said...

Your decor is always so beautiful. The wheat grass color is great. I will have to try some myself to get some spring color around the house.

Your "mantel" health looks great. Heidi, I have not forgotten about Mt. Hope, and the invite we have for you to come visit here. Honestly, my mind is crazy busy on a soon to be launched project. Also the pumpkin we saved to make something pumpkinish and dessertish for you all, sadly, melted outside on my porch.
Oh, I did buy some black candle, like they used to sell at Poet's. A friend owns Luxe, here in Eugene, and actually, my husband bought them for me for Valentines...

Heidi- How long did it take the wheat grass to sprout?

Also, I have a larger round metal orbit-thingymagiger (an astronomy sort of tool?) like you have in one of your displays. Mine is on a sofa table display with some springy gardeny things too. But, I never know what to call it...do you know the official name?

Tera~ I'd say maybe a week for short grass. And it's called an armillary. (Real armillaries are much more elaborate and detailed, though.)

Trish said...

Pretty, Heidi!

Okay, so this morning I planted wheat berries I had in the pantry into some little pots - can't wait to see green!!! Thanks for the inspiration.

Also, I was wondering if you are using your white pedestal bowl somewhere...what's in it now? I've been blowing out naturally colored eggs (browns and greens), but I envy that bowl you have :)

I have been thoroughly touched by reading everyone's ideas for family connections. One of the gals -Crystal? has her family say encouraging words to each member daily; that choked me up. Gonna add that one to our routine!

Tera (again!) ;-)

Love the grass in those terra cotta pots and the armillary sphere -- wonderful!

The Charm House said...

Beautiful... I have two bridal showers coming up and I have to get the wheat grass out. Love your ideas!
Hugs,

Stacey said...

Beautiful! I'm adding wheat grass to my list. Everything looks elegant and springy.

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Oh, I just love your simple & elegant display for spring, along with some bunnies. Can't go wrong with that! Beautiful, thanks for joining the party.

Mrs. G said...

OH, I love the little pots with grass growing in them. That is one of my favorite spring decorations. Wonder where I can get some asap.
Hugs,
Sue

Hello Heidi...

Happy Spring Fluffing! Hehe! I believe that this is my very first time to visit your blog...what a pleasure! I loved all of your pretty pots of grass...it's just "singing" Spring praises!!! All of your vignettes are absolutely gorgeous...I enjoyed each and every one! I can see that you have an "eye" for such things!!!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
Warmest wishes,
Chari

foxxy said...

Wow I never thought about growing grass in a pot. I'll have to do that soon. Great photo shots btw.

Pixeltrash said...

Really pretty! My kitty would love that grass you have growing!

KarenB said...

I planted wheat grass years ago in a big basket for an Easter centerpiece. My girls are big now, but I could do it just for me. Your Spring decorations are very well done. Thanks for sharing.
