Spring Changes

It is finally starting to feel and look like Spring here and as I was Spring cleaning I did some rearranging too. I recently acquired this adorable little table, yet another hand me down from my sister.


I painted it Glidden's "Bisque" that I had picked up on clearance (it turns out it is a great off white) and then placed my cubby piece on top, I could never find a good place for this piece but I think I have found it for now. And with Easter coming I thought what would be better inside the cubbies than eggs?



I just found the two pieces of ironstone at the thrift store on Monday, 2 dollars a piece, can't beat that!


















I love the change in seasons, it always inspires me to rearrange and rethink the way I have things. In the process you get to clean and clear out the past seasons clutter, it is so cathartic.













And speaking of decluttering I have been going through a lot of my things and many of them are going to end up in my Etsy shop....here are just a few of the things that I have decided to let go of and already listed.

    1. Thank you Debi, it wasn't Neal's school but it was my sisters kid's district, they are okay but it was very upsetting for us. Thanks for thinking of me:)

  7. The cubbies with eggs is such a great idea - love how it looks on the table. Your home is amazing. I keep looking back through previous posts , and I absolutely love how it has all come together. You have such a talent for decorating, and your home truly has that comfortable, welcoming farmhouse feel. I live in a colonial, but am slowly incorporating farmhouse touches after seeing what you have accomplished - I love your style - and hopefully I can make my home just as warm & inviting as yours.

  8. Love the sap bucket on your table! The cubby is a perfect idea for all my different birds' nests and eggs I have collected over the years, so that gives me something to look for. You have some amazing thrift stores to be able to pick up an ironstone bowl like the one with the handles for $2. Don't you just love finds like that? Ordering my Citristrip today, can't wait to see how it works. Thanks for the tip!

  18. I just found your blog, and I am absolutely in love with your style! I've been trying to work toward the same white rustic farmhouse look over the past few years. It is so hard to make a suburban duplex feel like an old farmhouse! So thank you so much for the inspiration. I love all the different white paints you use.

    1. The chandelier is made by Progress Lighting, we bought it on clearance at the Home Depot in 2009, it was being discontinued:(
