Spring Touches

 I have been cruising Pinterest looking for spring inspiration. I don't use pastels for Easter so I love to find ideas with more muted colors to decorate with. We moved some furniture around last weekend and the dry sink is now in front of the window here. Do you know the wood candle sticks, the yellow bowl which I painted, one of the crocks and the tin heart electric candle are all from the thrift store. You really can decorate on a tight budget.


I kept all my prim touches and just added a pot of silk flowers and a chicken. I have cut back on the holiday decor and just want to tuck seasonal touches here and there.





I bought these adorable chicks and the tiny salt and pepper shakers along with a burlap runner for my spring table centerpiece. I need to find a new tablecloth and get the table decorated. They had the chicks arranged with small bird houses and clumps of green moss. It was simple and screamed spring. I want to find some of the mossy rocks they had. That way I can leave the chicks out through May when I change over for Memorial Day.


Happy almost Spring!!

I love the simple natural color scheme- and those chicks are adorable! You're so right thrift stores have the most amazing finds sometimes- sometimes a coat of paint can transform anything!

Cindy said...

Looks good already! I've been doing some redecorating and have been "shopping" my house. It's kind of fun to see how I can change things up without spending money.

I also need to work with more muted colors, basically cream, green, peach, very soft yellow, and I also need to be thrifty. No need to add to my collection, I have been scaling down for a while. Feels good. xo

What a lovely washstand!! A family piece??? You know - that would make such a nice baby changing table!!! I know this isn't what your posting is about - but I really enjoy furniture/wood and it's history. . . .

Love the yellow bowl you painted and the chicks are darling. All my decor items are thrifted. I get sticker shock in a regular store every time I enter one which is not often.

The simplicity you chose to decorate for Spring is so non-fussy. I like it. Today, I tweaked a few things around home. For the moment my red hutch is now sporting a few bunnies.
Have a great weekend, Elaine.

I love your ideas for your Easter decorating Elaine and I agree with you it doesn't have to cost a mint.
I do love your sweet chickens!

I love the chicks, Elaine. They remind me of some of the chicks in my egg cup collection. I don't really decorate for the seasons. But I will highlight my egg cups in the coming week - an annual Easter time tradition. Yes, bring on Spring!

Thanks so much for joining in this week!

The silk flowers and the chicken added just the perfect touch of spring to your home. Often it's the small touches that add the most impact. Love those little chicks too!

Big Hugs,

I love the way you decorated for Spring, Elaine. It looks wonderful with those lovely wooden pieces and soft pastel flowers... like spring in a forest! Those chicks are adorable and I'm sure they'll look lovely on your table.
