Spring Decorating



We had a teaser last week with temps in the upper sixties.  This week they are predicting snow.  Ugh!!  This bad weather seams to be lasting a very long time.   I am ready for spring in a big way (and the start of garage sale season).  I just can't wait.  I have been busy decorating the house with my thrifty finds and pulling out my spring clothes!!!  I don't even want to hear the word snow!!!


Here are some pictures of the buffet in my dining room.  The paper Mache' bunny (which my three year old says is scary) was my mom's when she was growing up.  It is German.  The cloche was a score from the thrift store it was $1.00 the silver stand it sits on was from another thrift store and was also $1.00 it was a candy dish in it's former life.  The eggs were from Jo-Ann's and were my one new purchase everything else I already had in the house.  The candle is in a mercury glass dish and I just placed potpourri around it.  The chick salt and pepper shakers are vintage made in Japan .  I got them 15 years ago at a rummage sale.


The bowl is beautiful green and floral design it was my grandmother's.  The cake plate was a $1.00 at a garage sale.  The daisy came from a bag a potpourri.  The green branchy thing is a wreath from a yard sale 50 cents.  The silver tray was a dollar from a rummage sale.  The plate in the background was in a free box at a yard sale.  The ceramic eggs were .99 cents at the thrift store.  The scale was $4.00 at a yard sale and the baby is now 11.  The frame she is in came from a yard sale for a quarter.



The white milk glass lamps were $2.00 for the pair at an estate sale.  I want to do something to the shades, but haven't figured out what yet.    The cake server in the first picture was from a yard sale for $5.00 for both pieces.  The "mother" mug came from the thrift store and is made in Japan.  It was .39 cents.  I added more potpourri and a little picture of my son who is now 5!!!


Well what do you think are you ready for spring?
