A New Look For Spring


Hello! How are you this day before Spring begins? Hope you are as excited over springtime as most everyone else, who I’m heard voice their love for SPRING! Hooray for everything except wild storms many areas have. Let’s enjoy the thoughts of flowers blooming, birds singing, and picnics in the park or our backyards!


No, there’s been no mention yet of cleaning up the mess our winter caused in our yards…we’ll think about that later on! Today just rejoice that winter is going away.


I have been shopping off and on over the past 3 or more months…dreaming of spring…think that has been mentioned a bit! It took several trips to make up my mind what would be in these two areas of our family room. You will see more in a few days. OK, shopping trips to Hobby Lobby, Kirkland’s, Ross Dress For Less, and Old Time Pottery were fun and there was a new look showing this season.


You probably have noticed, that much of the mantle is like it was in February. Someone might be missing our Federal mirror in this house, that is. I’m the one holding on to the Parisian canvas from Hobby Lobby. Why? Knew you would ask! It reminds me of our trip to Paris decades ago and makes me happy to see it above the mantle. It probably will be moving around soon. The bright white chicken on the mantle was a great find at Ross Dress For Less! Also, from Ross Dress For Less are the Parisian style script on the pillows on the chairs in front of the fireplace. Those chairs will likely have lumbar pillows soon.


Almost forgot to share the items on the cedar chest in front of the sofa. The skinny red tray was found at Hobby Lobby and it’s moved around on the first floor a lot this year. The orbs and the galvanized oval tub were found at Kirkland’s along with the birdcage pillows on the sofa.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to enjoy your next shopping day.

  1. Helen, It’s great to see your new post. My how I have looked forward to it. I, too, am so glad that spring begins tomorrow. Yes, blooming flowers, singing birds, and picnics in a park or in a backyard would put a smile on anyone’s face. Well, as usual, I love all of the changes and new items that you’ve featured. I think my favorite addition is the pillows. The bird/cage just seems perfect for this time of year. Your mantle seems lighter in color, and everything is just so welcoming. Thank you for sharing.
