Let's Pretend

3.25.2016

Let's pretend you are a guest in my French country style guest room this spring.

It's a beautiful sunny morning and I hope you rested well last night.

I hope you don't mind, but while you were in the shower I made up the bed for you and brought you up a breakfast tray.

Let me pour you a cup of coffee.

Cream?

You're not allergic to eggs are you?
 I'll be glad to grab some yogurt, fruit, or maybe some muffins.

Mr. Bunny didn't scare you did he? He is a bit funky looking, but my dear sweet grandmother made this for my first child when I was pregnant and I like to bring him back out in the spring. This little bunny is 37 years old. Where has the time gone?

While I was cleaning out some clutter in the closet to make room for your things I found my bunny needlepoint pillow. I wondered where it had gone to.


Do you like my new bird pillow? Birds and spring just go together, don't you think?



Did you notice that I switched this table and the French table since the last time you were here? Oh, and yes, I forgot, I painted it, too. It was painted in Chateau Gray which is a green gray and it just wasn't working in here with all the blue.

I've seen you eyeing my chippy sheep. You better not try to sneak that out of here. Do I need to check your purse?

This is my stone mama and baby bunny that I picked up at the antique mall to add a bit more spring in here. You know bunnies are quite busy in the spring and they sure are multiplying in this room.

I bought some fresh flowers and tucked them in this pitcher. I want the room to be cheery and flowers do that.

Well, I'll let you enjoy your breakfast and when you are ready we will be off to do some shopping.


Oh, and Shirley, remember this is all just pretend!!

While we are out shopping I hope y'all will be sure to check out my very talented friends' spring tours and design ideas below
and I'm wishing y'all a very Happy Easter!!

  25. I am a fairly new reader to your lovely blog. I have a similar antique mirror to the one on the wall above the bed, only mine has dark wood. I was thinking about getting rid of it, but I love the lighter painted wood on yours. I'm going to keep it and file the idea away so I can use it sometime. Love it! Thank you.

    1. Barbara, glad to have you as a new reader. My mirror was a wood color, too and I painted it. I'm always painting something around here. :)

  26. Your guest room looks so cozy and inviting! Of course, I think your entire home feels that way! You have no idea how you've inspired some of my decorating (french breadboards and confit jars to name a few)! I can see that a shopping trip with you would be up on the list pretty close to another trip to France! ;) In this room I'm in love with that mirror over the bed...any idea where I could find another? I absolutely love your decorating ideas and sweet sense of humor! Happy Easter Kim!
