fluffing my nest for spring

In my post from March 19th, I showed a picture of a green, glass bottle
that I picked up at TJ Maxx. I had it on a stack of books on the buffet
in my living room and was saying that maybe it would look better
with some pussy willows sticking out of it. A reader commented that
 forsythia would also look nice. Yes, indeed!
Lo and behold, I was in a little shop in town this weekend and found
some nice sprigs of pussy willows for $3. Bingo!

I moved the green bottle to the console table and put it
in-between the two red lamps.
What do you think?

At this same shop, I also found a spring candle wreath.
I had this wire candle holder and green candle in a storage box
here at home, so no need to buy those items.

And then I couldn't resist this cute, mini chick pillow.
It's on a small shelf in my kitchen for now.
I "play" with decor quite often, so it might end up somewhere else. ;-)

Found this sweet Lefton figurine at the local antique mall a couple of months ago.
I think the bunny looks a bit evil, lol.

Like objects look better in groups instead of scattered around,
so I lined these bunnies up on the ledge of the china cabinet...

I bought these miniature wooden Easter eggs from World Market
a few years ago, and I know they're made for hanging since
they have strings, but I think they also look pretty 
stuffed under a cloche.

These are just a few of the spring touches I've created in my home.
Flannel sheets and down comforters are packed away; wooly throws
draped over couches and chairs have been replaced with lighter blankets
for chilly mornings and evenings.
Even hubby has been in a spring cleaning mood, with working on
cleaning out the garage and basement.
We still have a lot more work to do, but it's a start.


  1. My favorite is the chick pillow, I do have a fondness for birds!

  2. Hi, my favorite is the cloche with eggs. Everything is beautiful.

  3. Very pretty spring touches! The pussywillows look great in the vase!
