This early spring thing has me a little giddy this year. It wasn't a particularly hard winter but listening to the light rain yesterday while doing paperwork and seeing the green buds of my bulbs just starting to creep through has me drifting. Thoughts of getting my hands in the dirt, feet up on a lounger at night has been slightly distracting.
In order to help with some of the distraction I flipped our house out of winter mode the past few weeks and into spring mode. I love seasonal decorating as it isn't holiday specific, refreshes your home in a way that makes me smile when I walk around and changes the look of a space with minimal effort.
Away went the furs, plaids and reindeer.
Out came the bunnies, indigos and plants a plenty.
Our spring home tour of the main floor,
i always like this peek through look from our sofa, that catches the back of the sofa table (and my new yoga rabbit in cobra position), the azalea on our coffee table and the mantel all in one shot
the spring mantel. bunnies, terracotta, mushrooms and green
and don't tigers just scream spring. not really but they are our staple
not that it's unusual for me with the green but i made the sofa table a collection of our green glass including my ever growing collection of flower frogs. this table was very simple for winter so i am enjoying the heavier mix for now
our front entrance is not much different but that vintage watkins carrier on the floor with the hydrangea finally came home with me. when i say finally i mean i left it in an antique store 7 times over a 2 year period for various reasons, too much money, no place for it and then when i was there around my birthday it just stared at me and since 99% of the the vintage i buy now goes to the store i went with a little treat for myself. it kind of felt like an orphaned piece that needed a home so i adopted it.
we've had this big urn in the dining room for a few years but would you believe this is the first time i have actually planted it with live plants. loving the look with the golden moss and maidenhair ferns
Hope you enjoyed your slice of spring.
