Happy Monday friends! I am so happy it’s Easter week, aren’t you? During this special time of year we are reminded about what really matters and how blessed we are no matter what we are facing! As we are beginning our third/fourth? week of staying home, I am finding even more joy in gathering with each of you here on the blog to celebrate our homes, families, crafts, decor, gardens, recipes and more. I am truly grateful you are here, and I hope you enjoy this fun party as much as I do! I am sure the spring inspo and Easter ideas are going to be top notch this week, so even after visiting today I encourage you to swing back by on Friday after the party has wrapped up to check out all the links that were shared this week. I can’t wait to see!
Spring is in full swing, and Easter’s on it’s way! It’s hard to believe that a week from today will be Good Friday. Even though our world has been turned upside down and social gatherings may be canceled, the joy of celebrating Easter in our hearts can never be canceled! Today some of my dearest blogging friends and I are getting together to share a wide variety of Easter and spring inspiration to celebrate this joyous season of rebirth and renewal.
Happy April everyone! Today I am happy to be joining several friends for a fun little spring DIY and Craft Round-Up hosted by my friend Barbara of French Ethereal. You will find links to all of the creative posts at the end of this post. If you are coming over from Decor to Adore or if you just happened to stop by for a visit, I am truly happy you are here!
Hello friends, welcome to my porch! Oh how I wish you could stop by for a chat today! Let’s forget all about “social distancing” and imagine you are joining me on my porch here in Kentucky for just a while. The spring weather is perfect for porch sitting and the views are spectacular. Colorful trees are budding out all up and down our quiet street. The daffodils are in bloom, tulips are poking through the ground and the birds are chirping away merrily. When relaxing on our porch it is easy to forget the difficulties of the world. *This post contains affilite links.
Spring has sprung in Kentucky and the ground is covered in sweet violets! These beautiful little flowers were beloved in days of old, but in modern times they are often overshadowed by their cousins, “Viola” and “Pansy.” In my opinion, all of these members of the violet family deserve adoration, but early spring is the sweet violet’s time to shine. Today I am sharing some “sweet violets to greet you” and to hopefully inspire you to take special notice of these beautiful free gifts from nature while they last.
Happy spring! Today I am excited to be joining my friend Marty of A Stroll Through Life for the Spring 2020 Home Tours featuring 30 talented bloggers! If you are coming over from Life On Cedar Lane or if you just happened to stop by today, I am so glad to have you here.*This post contains affiliate links.
Hello dear friends! Today I am excited to share how I have used vintage crocks in my early spring porch decorating as part of a fun Vintage Farmhouse/Lifestyle Blog Hop hosted by my talented friend Cindy of County Road 407. At the end of this post you will find links to eight other beautiful blog posts full gorgeous ideas for decorating with crocks and stoneware.
Hello friends! With spring just about to “spring up” and Easter just a month away, I thought it would be the perfect time to share highlights from my Spring and Easter Joys Pinterest board. This board is where I pin beautiful images which represent all aspects of the season. Here are some of my favorite pins of mean spring and Easter to me. I hope you enjoy them!
Hello friends! Today I am happy to show you how I have added some early spring vibes to our home using beautiful faux greenery and plants. Since the end of February I have been transitioning my decor from winter to spring using natural and rustic elements and beautiful faux greenery for March. Even though I love all the bright colors of Easter and mid-late spring, I am just not quite ready for all of the busy-ness of color and Easter trinkets just yet. Green is my favorite color, so I always enjoy using lots of green in my decor, especially in March. *This post contains affiliate links.
Well friends, we have made it through the longest part of winter and spring is just around four weeks away! While there may be plenty of snow and winter weather before the warm temperatures come to stay, the daffodils are beginning to poke through the ground—a sure sign that spring will arrive one way or another!
Welcome back friend for a nother post in my Pin Away Wednesdays series! Today I am sharing highlights from my “Decorative Accessories and Interior Styling” Pinterest board. On this board I pin ideas for styling vignettes, mantels, tabletops, etc. using candlesticks, baskets, books, trinkets and treasures. The board features a mix of non-seasonal, vintage and modern accessories that can be used together to create stylish, up-to-date looks. I first shared this post around this same time last year, but I have just updated it with some new images of fresh decorative accents for 2020. Here are some of my favorite images from the board. Feel free to pin away! *This post contains affiliate links.
Hello friends and welcome back for another post in my Interior Decor and Design series. Today I am in the mood to talk decor and to share some thoughts on my decorating style and how it has changed (often back and forth) over the years. It has always been hard for me to define my style because I love so many different design elements. We have some home updates coming this summer including a kitchen makeover, family room refresh and entry way refresh and I am still undecided as to what overlook I want to achieve. *This post contains affiliate links.
Happy Wednesday friends! I am feeling a little blue today…and that’s a good thing! Last week I had so much fun working on my post, “2020 Interior Design Forecast: Expect a Blue-tiful Year!” and I just haven’t been able to stop pinning pretty blue decor since! Today I wanted to continue the blue-tiful inspiration by sharing highlights from my Beautiful Blue Decor and Treasures Pinterest board. If you love blue or if you are just wanting to get in on the color trend and gain some ideas for decorating with blue, then get ready to pin away! *This post contains affiliate links.
Welcome friends! Do you have spring fever yet? I normally enjoy cozy winter months after the hectic holidays, but with the crazy warm weather we have been having and the birds singing outside my window, I can’t help but to think spring! While spring is actually still a while away, the long winter months gives us all time to gather ideas and craft supplies for spring and Easter DIYs. Today I am sharing some easy-springy little ideas for upcyling and repurposing old bed springs (or chair springs) into unique spring or Easter decorations. *This post contains affiliate links.
Happy 2020 everyone! The new year often inspires us to make some changes to our decor. One of the easiest ways to keep a home looking fresh and current without breaking the bank is to incorporate a few new (or different) decorative accent pieces using popular colors and styles. This is the year to welcome more blue in and around our homes. *This post contains affiliate links.
Happy May Day! Are you familiar with the old tradition of making a pretty basket or cone filled with flowers to hang on a neighbor’s door on May 1st? The tradition holds that you must sneak up and hang the basket, knock on the door, and run away. If you are caught, the neighbor must give you a kiss! Now, I really like my neighbors, but I think I will skip on the kissing part! Nevertheless, I think the tradition of giving your neighbor a pretty May Day basket is charming.
Happy Easter weekend! I am so excited that I finally finished my sacred Easter tablescape design, “Consider The Lilies.” You might have seen a few sneak peek photos in my Decorating For Easter with Vintage and Thrifted Treasures post.
Hip! Hop! It’s Easter in the kitchen! Blue skies, warm temperatures, and an explosion of spring color in nature (along with some recently thrifted finds) has inspired me to create some colorful, happy spring vibes in the kitchen which I will be sharing with you today. I am happy to be joining a wonderful group of bloggers for “10 on the 1oth” to share Easter decorating ideas. Thank you to our talented host Barbara at French Ethereal for inviting me to participate! If you are coming over from sweet Laura’s blog, Decor To Adore or if you are just visiting today, I am so glad to welcome you! On Monday I shared how I have decorated our home for Easter with vintage and thrifted finds. I included a few pictures of my kitchen in that post, but today I am also sharing a few more detailed pictures because I am just loving it and I hope you will too!
Welcome everyone! Is spring “springing” in your area? Pops of yellow forsythia bushes are flowering all over town which means that spring truly has arrived here in Kentucky! I have a bit of a sentimental attachment to forsythia. My grandparents had a beautiful forsythia bush by their side porch that I always loved. The blooming of the forsythia each year in March meant that my birthday and Easter were close at hand! My decorating is inspired by sentiment and what is going on seasonally in nature, so using forsythia to brighten up our home for early spring is something I always do. Even if you don’t want to drag out a lot of elaborate spring or Easter decor, faux or fresh forsythia branches can easily add some spring vibes to your home. Today I am sharing several ideas for simple spring decorating with forsythia.
Well friends, we’ve officially made it…tomorrow is the first day of spring! Are you looking for spring decor inspiration? If so, then you have definitely come to the right place! This week I am part of a group of thirty bloggers who are celebrating the arrival of spring with the annual Spring Home Tours hosted by fabulous Marty of A Stroll Thru Life. If you are coming over from Monica Wants It or if you are just stopping by again today, I am very happy to have you here. Let’s welcome spring together!
