If you follow me, you saw some of my spring decorating fling HERE. But for me the two coziest parts of my home are the family room and kitchen. Well, OK, the kitchen isn't that cozy -- it's just very small. But a few years ago I painted it a sunny yellow and I try to get as much holiday in it as I can!
Above is some of my Hall China collection -- Tulip and Crocus patterns. (I love how the small salt and pepper shakers on the top shelf look like eggs!). Those, combined with a Fiesta jug and some bunnies do plenty to brighten up the sink. And below? That's a painting done by my friend Kate as a thank-you card! I love it!
I need to do a little rearranging in my Ironstone flower pitcher. Just waiting for some nice real tulips instead of my overly floppy silks! It will happen.
The kitchen is connected to the family room. I love my fireplace mantle, perfect for changing things up now and then.
This plate was a very inexpensive Home Goods buy this year and sets the mood. Next to it is another of the peat pots from my peat-pot-making extravaganza!
This is the second of my egg trees. How I remember making eggs with my mom in our kitchen when I was a kid. Some of these are hers, others by me, still others purchased. All happy thoughts.
Of course I had to have my bird nests! The bird in the one below came from Deb, whose "Just Cats" blog is one of my favorites (especially if you love cats, but really, it's so much more!).
I promised myself I wouldn't buy any more bunnies this year but then I saw this one. And of course he needed a little peat pot basket. (Or is it a she?)
These lit branches stay out most of the year with different "stuffings."
And then there are wooden shoes I got last year at Southern Exposure. A few forsythia suits them just fine!
So there you have it -- home sweet home in spring!
Now, I'm just waiting for the bunny to make a delivery!
