The Spring Decorating Has Begun

3.12.2015

It has been warm and down right humid here this week and that has certainly put me in the mood to add some spring touches around the house. Even though we have been knee deep in the guest bathroom renovation I still managed to change some things up. The first thing I did was change the decor on the dining room table by grabbing this and grabbing that.

The large urn of dried hydrangeas that was here has been moved back to the fireplace in place of the logs.

I brought out my old berry crate to display a few things.

 I love this old blue and white transferware sugar bowl. It has been tucked away so it's fun bringing it out to be enjoyed.

Another blue and white addition is this vintage cow creamer.

The creamer sits on a stack of vintage books with some more blue on the binding.

I have had this little figurine for years. The little dog is just like Bailey begging at me.

A cloche covers a stack of found nests sitting on a stack of blue and white transferware plates.

My French confit pot holds some greenery. I will add flowers when I make it to the store.

Five items make this vignette work. Remember the key to the right look is in odd numbers.


Have you started decorating for spring? 
Official first day is 3/20!

Today the most exciting part of the bathroom remodel will be taking place! I will not shed a tear when the brown tub becomes shiny and white.

 I'm waiting on a few things to be delivered like the shower curtain, liner and rings and I need to go buy a shower curtain rod. Mr. Savvy has to finish the trim and install the mirror and I will finish the touch up painting. Yay, we're almost done.

  1. I don't really do alot of seasonal decorating, but I will change out pillows, put away the heavier throws, etc. Haven't done anything yet because we are painting and it seems like nothing is where it should be! The good thing is as my hubby paints, I am cleaning light fixtures, fans, cabinets, etc. so I guess spring cleaning is taking place too. I do have a cute bunny rabbit wreath on the front door and an Easter flag out!

  4. So beautiful Kim! The blue transferware is gorgeous. Haven't decorated for Spring yet because I'm right in the middle of prepping all of our tax information this week. I have the itch to get outside with this gorgeous weather, though.

  19. I change my tabletop often but the pillows are another matter. Hopefully I muster up the energy to do that this weekend. Humidity sounds great right about now!

  21. It is looking great there, Kim. Really Springy! Not doing anything here yet but will this next week. We still have snow and the frozen bay. I do love the blue and white. Can't wait to see the brown tub turn white! Kinda like bleaching hair-only longer lasting! xo Diana

  24. Kim, I always get inspired when I see your dining room. I love the look of the open doors on the cabinet and your long table. You always have a charming vignette in the center of your table. I will add this one to my Pinterest boards.
    It is looking and feeling like spring here the last two days, so I've pulled out some Easter things. It perked me up just to have something fresh and spring like out . I bought the most gorgeous purple parrot tulips to fill a large ironstone pitcher. I'm a happy girl! '-)

  25. The vignette is adorable and the sugar bowl is gorgeous! Good luck with the bathroom!

  26. I adore the woman & dog figurine! It is precious! The entire vignette looks great. I put out some of my Spring touches back in February after buying an antique French wire egg basket at the flea market. I guess, in a way, it is eternally Spring in Santa Barbara, California.
    Best,

  27. I never think to move things around the house to create a new look - what an inspired idea! Like shopping only at home! And I love how you've showcased the nests under glass. We often find the most precious nuthatch nests and now I know just what to do with them! Thanks!!
