With what has seemed like the winter that lasts forever still upon us, I haven't felt much like adding any spring décor. It has been so dang cold!!! But, warmer temps are here - it was in the thirties today, so I decided to add a few spring touches to my green living room shelf. (To see how I made this shelf, check out this post.)
This shelf hangs above our sofa. I added the bird prints last year - a Home Goods buy. The colors in these prints are just perfect with my living room furniture and I just love the floral and bird combo.
I shopped the house and added a tin & wicker long basket, along with an old kitchen scale that I picked up a few weeks ago when we went to Oshkosh to visit our daughter at school. There is the best antique mall in Oshkosh - and it seems like I always find a neat, old, chippy scale when I go. Not bad for $15.00!
**Edited to add: I've had several Wisconsin gals ask where this mall is. Here is the web link for more information. It is huge and right off the freeway!!!
The plates are three of my faves - they have hung here for a few years now. I always think about changing them out, but I just can't....not yet! The picture in the basket is burlap wrapped and depicts eggs and another sweet bird. I usually have it hanging in the den, but I wanted a little burlap texture to complete this arrangement.
The bird was a Dollar Store purchase years ago, and I just grabbed one of my book bundles to give the arrangement a little height.
The depression glass cake stand holds a yummy fragranced candle which also offers a pop of red to the grouping.
A closer look at one of the prints - the colors are just so vibrant and cheery. They work for winter and spring, at least I think so!
Now that the weekend is here, maybe I will putter around the house and add a few more spring touches. How about you? Any spring like plans?
