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~
