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.
A new little ironstone pitcher with some faux lavender.
And a bunny for the end.
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
I’ll be back tomorrow with our next installment of the Oh, Captain Wentworth! Sew Along.
Have a great day!
