Looking Spring Like

3.07.2011

Thanks to everyone who wished Mr. Savvy a happy birthday. It is always nice to celebrate another year.
My followers finally showed up on my blog last night and the problem I was having with my html gadget has cleared up, too. I these were blogger issues. After my hotmail account was hacked and then problems with my blog I was worried I was losing the blog. Now I can breathe easier with it all working now.

I made a few changes for a spring like vignette since spring is in the air.




I purchased the green concrete shabby rooster at Home Goods a couple of weeks ago for $19.
This is really meant to go in a garden, but I thought I would use him in here for now.


Purchased this ironstone sugar bowl with no lid at the antique mall and just added some greenery to it. I will probably find an orchid to plant in this bowl.


The dried hydrangeas were purchased from ebay since I don't have any of my own bushes to get these from. I didn't even know you could buy these on ebay until I read that someone else had. I just stuck all the hydrangeas in my silver Revere bowl.


The bunny moved from the sunroom into here. A bunny just says spring to me. I guess because we have the Easter bunny.


Just playing with the saturated color in effects in picasa.


This one was done in black and white with color added just to a couple of flowers.


All black and white


Close up of the rooster without any photo enhancing.


Old books, ironstone, silver and hydrangeas. Love this mix.

  4. This is beautiful Kim. Do you know how to back up your blog? It is really easy and I did it yesterday. BJ at Sweet Nothings has a button on her sidebar that will take you to Donna's Funky Junk Interiors and she has a post about it. Do it and you won't have to worry, within a few minutes you'll have it exported right back on your dashboard. Take care and wish Mr. Savvy a Happy B-Day! Mr. Charming Home had one last week too. LOL!

  9. It looks great Kim! I have a cement rooster in my potager that I was hoping over time would look green like yours. I have had it 7 years now and still not green. I guess I am going to have to put buttermilk on it to age it.
    Hugs,

  12. Kim, it all looks fresh and ready for spring. The next time you have hydrangeas as cut flowers, just let them dry naturally. I have many dried hydrangeas from grocery store stems. Try it next time. They last forever too. ~ Sarah

  13. LOL... love seeing your picasa play, Kim! Those succulents are so cute, too! The rooster and the bunny are heralders (is that a word?) of springtime! And, you know I love that silver bowl! Beautiful.

    Glad your techno issues are resolved!

  17. Kim, I love the Revere bowl with hydrangeas. You never can go wrong with silver and hydrangeas in my book. The succulents in the sugar bowl are really nice and unexpected. Great vignette with the concrete rooster presiding over it all. Wish I had seen him first. Have a great week.

  21. Spring has sprung at your house and it looks lovely. Now if we can get the temps here in Atlanta to go back up to where they were about a week or so ago!

    I, too, have always loved the look of dried hydrangeas. Thanks for the tip about purchasing them on ebay. I would never have thought of that!

  37. Love the rooster, bunny, hydrangeas, the full setting is wonderful. Planted our first hydrangea last year, hoping for full blooms this year. Beautiful flowers.

  38. How did I miss this post? Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!! Love your bunnies. XO ~Liz

  39. I love your spring vignette. Every piece looks great in the setting. I am, however, shocked that you could buy dried hydrangea on Ebay; they are so fragile when they are dry. I love them but don't have any bushes either. I get mine from a vendor at our local farmer's market on Saturday. The ones I bought last summer are finally starting to fall apart, so can't wait to get some new ones this year. They are one of my favorite flowers. I am going to have to check out Ebay for hydrangeas.
