Although I love to decorate for the holidays, I never really thought about changing things around during each season… until now 😉
About 8-9 years ago, we decided that someday soon we would move into a different home. We wanted something a little larger for our growing family, and more land for our growing desire for gardening! After we found our property, we went through the process of finding a house plan & building the new house. Fast forward several years… I finally feel settled & excited about decorating & gardening for the future.
In the past, I would normally get in the mood to decorate when the holidays came around a few times each year. Now, in our first year in the new cottage, I find myself thinking in terms of seasons – not just holidays.
I’ve always loved to look through magazines & see the beautiful pictures of homes as they go through their seasonal changes, but I always thought it was to expensive, as well as to much work. Now, however, I have a new philosophy… Why Not?
Even if the only thing you change is a picture, a piece of fabric, or a potted plant, you’re still keeping things interesting & current. And expensive? I should have known better I have been known to uncover “many a good deal” in these parts 😉 So… I wanted to share some of the recent changes for the new season. This is our first Spring in the new house – as well as the beginning of a wonderful new tradition… change 😉
My friend bought me these little prim chicks from a favorite prim store of mine.
I love having different platters & bowls to serve our family & guests. When I find one at a great price, I snatch it up quick This one was only $6 from a Pier One Sale!
* I just had to dress the rusty tin star with a dash of color
I love vintage wooden butter bowls – I picked these up in a $1 box at auction. The little bunny is cast iron.
I love these pears! I picked them up for .79 cents. They have such a vintage look with their coat of sparkles.
Isn’t she beautiful! I especially love her little red lips!
P is for Pearls
A gift from a friend – I love pearls & my name is Pearl
My friend made this little ornament for me. I love the way it sparkles!
I picked up the waverly toile runner for $5 at a local discount store. I want to add some pots of green plants to the center.
Here’s a close up of the little cast iron birds in the table wreath.
I can tell this is going to be fun!!
