I try to bring a bit of the outdoors in for each passing season. For us, the first sign of Spring is the return of our fine feathered friends.
Hearing their sweet sounds is music to my ears, after a long winter.
Plants are starting to sprout outside, so I added bits of greenery here and there throughout the house.
The shelves are filled with a few simple objects to reflect the season.
Books, whether new or old are a recurring theme with my decor. They are the perfect anchor for just about anything.
I collect 'K's' with the thought of including them in a gallery wall someday. Today, this striped letter found its place amid my Spring decor.
Finding ways to display handmade objects gives them more meaning and personalizes your home.
With that in mind, my Bird Pincushion settled into place easily with its tarnished silver and winged chickadee.
With so many birds flying about, this nest was inevitable.
Since the mantel and the shelving got an update, the coffee table needed a lift as well.
As per my usual style, I kept it very simple. A distressed dark wood tray corrals a couple of books topped with a magnifying glass.
It may seem a bit odd, but I am always checking out the plant area at the grocery store. There are new items every week that find their way into my carriage. On my last trip, I found this sweet plant filled mason jar terrarium.
Come to think of it, I find decor items in all sorts of unusual places - the hardware store, the grain store and my favorite place - my own home - moving things around from room to room as the seasons change or the mood strikes me.
