It's time for a change as spring is here!
I changed out the pillows on the sofa from striped to spring-green checked
and I found a new quilted throw at Winner's. It has spring-green and tan on the
white background so it coordinates with the pillows.
I couldn't believe it when I put them together! I bought the pillows at
Fabricville last spring.
China cabinet before
I've added some pastels and Easter decor here. The china bunny on
the left is a pitcher that I found at Winner's. They had other items there to match too.
The one on the right I got there 2 years ago.
Here's a closer look at this bunny pitcher. Isn't she sweet?
Here is a closeup of a couple of vintage Easter chicks that I found.
They are made of cotton and are much cuter than the newer bright yellow
ones made today.
This little guy is very old. My mother thought it was hung from an old
gas light in the farmhouse and held matches. There are 3 tiny holes near
the top of the egg that could have had chain linked through for such a purpose.
Has anyone ever seen such an item?
You can also see that there are a
few holes and cracks in it. I happend to break it and my hubby glued
it back together as best as he could.
Here are the markings on the bottom of it. # 2670 near the edge and
#33 painted on the lower right.
I also changed out the two smaller oval plates on the bottom shelf with
2 hand painted floral plates.
This is a vintage pillow cover that I got from my sister. The top has
embroidered flowers on it and it flips up so you can place a pillow form
inside the opening underneath. I like it on our bed.
Here is a closeup of the embroidery.
I moved this tray to the oak 'island' in the kitchen.
Table top in the front entry. I'm trying to 'force' the dogwood branches.
I did that last year and the tiny leaves came out after a few weeks.
One of my side tables.
I added the old dresser mirror above the oak commode.
A closeup of the detail, scratches and all. It looks like cornflower.
That is my spring decorating for now. I am readying our bedroom for
painting so it is stripped of it's decor and all that stuff is stashed in
the spare bedroom. What a mess!
Have you decorated for spring yet?
I want to say a big Thank You to all you, my faithful followers
and visitors, who have left such lovely comments on my recent
posts. It is very encouraging as there are days when I just wonder
"Why am I doing this? What will I ever post today?"
Blogging during the winter months has been a blessing and has kept
me sane and helped me get through the cold, dark winter days (and nights).
I have had to use my writing skills, photography skills (?) and my
brain (??) to keep up with the posts. It's all good!
As we move into spring and I have to be outdoors doing gardening and
yardwork I may not be able to keep up with as many posts.
But, I'll sure try and I'll try to stay in touch and follow along with
my favorites too! I truly enjoy blogging as a creative outlet.
Hubby and I are off to the Home Show in Fredericton this evening and
hopefully to the Sugarbush Weekend at Kings Landing Historical Settlement
tomorrow. I will have some pictures of it to show you later.
What are you doing this weekend?
I wish you blessings, whatever you do!
