Oh The Scene of Green, Green, Green….And Red Of Course!

Hello! Welcome to My Bella Rose!  Today I am linking with Flaunt It Friday, Make it for Monday, and Marty & Tabletop Tuesday.  Y’all make sure and visit these wonderful blogs! You’ll be glad you did!

I’ve been away but I’m hoping to rekindle friendships through out bloggy world.   

Oh my goodness!  I’ve been longing for spring so much.  Texas has been very cold.  It was so cold that we had lost power for close to a day last week.  To top it off, we had frozen pipes because of no power.   When the pipes finally thawed out, we had busted pipes!  Our pipes run in the attic so you can just imagine the mess.  Still working on the mess.  We ended up having to replace all of the pipes.  Next step is to work on the walls and ceiling that got wet.  Those will have to be replaced.  What a mess!  I’m so ready for warm weather.   I did manage to put this little vignette together.  I’ve been on a green color kick here lately.  I’m telling ya, I am missing spring. Really!  I still love my red though! 

I bought the flowers and vase at Hobby Lobby.  The plate  with the flowers and hummingbird is from Home Goods.  The swan is from Home Goods as well.   


I love the combination of red and green. 


Look at that wonderful color of green.  I love it! 


Don’t you just love the glow from the lamp?  I bought the lamp at H.L. at 50 percent off!  Score!!


Love the glow! :)

I hope you enjoyed all of my photos.  :)

Monkey Bread Anyone?

I am linking with Design by Gollum and Foodie Friday. Please visit this wonderful blog to see what everyone else is sharing with us. 

Hello! Remember me?  I hope everyone is doing great.  I don’t know about y’all but I’m so ready for spring!  


Yay!! I still remember how to post!  I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything on my blog.  Life gets in the way, kwim?  It seems that the more you are away from blogging the harder it is to get back.   Anyone else gone thru this?  Anyway, I’m sure most of you have heard of Monkey Bread but I hadn’t till recently. LOL  It is very easy to make and the kids devoured it. :D

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 cans (16.3 oz each) Pillsbury® Grands!® Homestyle refrigerated buttermilk biscuits

1/2 cup chopped walnuts, if desired

1/2 cup raisins, if desired

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
