In the mood for spring

I pulled out a few things to bring a little
spring into my home:
old pots, hydrangeas tucked in a tin crate, and a little birdie. I found this fun little green house at a thrift store years ago. I almost gave it away but then forgot about it--its been sitting in my garage for 5+ years. After a good cleaning, I filled it with some greens, a nest and a bird.




I added some new pillows made from material purchased at Ikea for about $4/yard,
and a thrift store bunny with a burlap bow sitting in
an old urn along with some
other spring-time goodies.
These fun "tags" were purchased at a consignment store.
These little bunnies, chicks and eggs are
made out of plaster but almost look metal.
I also found this sweet sign (made by Simply Shabby Chic) at
the thrift store for a couple of dollars.
This blue frame was also a thrift store find (are you seeing a pattern here?), along with the bunny and white floral ball.


Come on spring, I'm ready.

  44. Hi, just found you on Tatertots. I'm trying to get into the spring spirit but it's keeps getting cold! Love your designs - makes me want to raid my mother's attic. I know she has a dresser like your white one and it's an old dark stain. Hope to see more posts!
