Spring Greens In The Foyer

Hello dear friends! Hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was pretty busy. On Sunday, we got back from Providence, Rhode Island after picking up my daughter from Brown University. So excited to have her home for the summer break!
Last week, we had wonderful spring weather. But the weekend was on the chilly side with a frost advisory overnight! It's still too early for us to plant annuals outside.
I am looking forward to more spring-like temperatures for the upcoming week. 
It feels good to add some spring accents in my foyer after a long and deary winter: 

This mossy green birdhouse sits on a column pedestal.

Click HERE for the tutorial to make these versatile column pedestals used as risers in vignettes.

The decoupaged  French Script tag decorated with some moss and silk forsythia hangs from the birdhouse. 

Spring seems like the perfect season to play with bunnies and the color green in my home.

Loving the lacy detailing on this white ceramic bunny.

The tall candle holder adds wonderful height to the vignette.

I added the green moss ball from Walmart on top of the candle holder instead of a candle.

A simple moss wreath hanging from the mirror is a lovely way to add some texture and spring accents.

Love the contrast in texture between the jute webbing and the moss wreath.

Blue mason jars inside a tool box is a beautiful way to display posies of spring violas.

Violas, a cool weather annual  planted in peat pots, are a lovely way to enjoy these pretties inside the home during the spring season.

Violas inside these mason jars. Loving the way they contrast in color with the blue mason jars. 

A bundle of forsythias behind the wooden tool box adds height, color, and texture and also  balances well with the other side of the vignette.

I love adding spring to my decor! A season of rebirth in nature, warmer temperatures, and increasing daylight :)

So long for today! I am so glad you stopped by. I hoped you liked peeking into my spring greens. It is always so much fun having you over!

Spring Blooms and a New Chest in the Dining Room

Hello, dear friends!
I hope you are enjoying your weekend! Spring has finally arrived in our neck of the woods. Flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, and the sun is shining! And, I am having fun adding spring touches around my house.
Today, I thought I will share with you a new chest I found at Home Goods a couple weeks ago. I have been on the hunt for a small chest to store my ever-growing collection of dishes. It had to be small enough to fit in this little corner of my dining room, so when I happened upon this one at Home Goods, it was my lucky day! It came home with me and I've been having lots of fun playing with it ever since!

I love the distressed top, and the color of the chest fits quite beautifully with the rest of the decor in the dining room. 

I love creating vignettes! And it has been so much fun playing with my new chest :)
I like bringing beautiful spring blooms from the garden to decorate and enjoy indoors. 
The daffodils in my garden are finally in bloom!

A host of golden daffodils in blue mason jars always look beautiful when housed under a glass cloche!

A fleur-de-lis always makes pretty accents in any room decor.

A spring bird nest adds pretty color and texture to a vignette.

And a turned wood table lamp and shade from Target create wonderful height in the vignette.

A pretty corner of my dining room next to the window seat.

So, are you having fun playing with spring?
Thanks for stopping by! It is always a pleasure to have you visit me. 
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Until, next time!
~Hugs, Poppy~
