Our Spring Living Room

Continuing on with sharing my shopping spree today.

I didn’t change too much up in here from the winter decor, just added some spring touches like some new plants and fresh tulips.  My wedding bouquet was white tulips, and when I brought them home The BG said, “reminds me of our wedding.” What a romantic guy, I didn’t even think of that until he said it!

I just added a nest to the coffee table arrangement, and left the binoculars for spring bird watching.

Hobby Lobby had their terrariums and bird cages half off last week. I have really wanted this rusty beauty for awhile now, so it was the perfect time of year to buy it and fill it with plants.

I found the milk glass planter at the same antique store the little wooden shoe form came from. The other pot is just a cheap clay pot white washed with a chalkboard sticker added. There’s a little nest, vintage clock, and sweet birdie in there too. I planted rosemary and a little fern.

I found this white pitcher at TJ Maxx, it’s  not ironstone but one can never have too many white pitchers, and at 7 dollars it had to come home.

And inside the cabinet is another little new addition to the ironstone collection.  It was one of the last things I bought on my shopping spree and I almost didn’t buy it because I was starting to feel guilty.  But I’m glad I did! That ironstone collection isn’t going to grow itself. hehehe

For the mantel, I found these great architectural salvage pieces at an antique barn in Allen, MI. They had big stacks of reclaimed barnwood too which I would have loved to get but I was driving my little VW Bug, so that wasn’t going to happen.

I left the sewing machine table pretty much the same, just took out the branches and added some spring blossoms found at Michael’s , changed the chalkboard to Welcome Spring!, and added some bunny molds.

The table in the foyer got spring-a-fied too with some garden tools and seed packets.

And my poor egg wreath that had seen better days, but I can’t bring myself to not use it. HA

Have a great day!
