Spring Hutch

Good Morning!

Hope you were able to work in a little R&R over the long weekend.  I enjoyed a weekend of work and play with the family which was delightful.

With summer closing in fast I thought it was a good time to share how I decorated my hutch for spring.  Soon it will be changed for the summer months but for now I've concentrated on green, blue and white.  My favorite spring colors.

I tried to keep things simple and use only my favorite items that screamed "spring" to me . . . like this blue tool box I scored at a garage sale last summer.  Filled with small plates and a cluster of candles tied together with white ribbon; I love the mix of industrial and pretty.

This shelf I reused an pretty plate, a distressed frame and some greenery. . . .

Along with a new lantern I found at the thrift store.  If you know me at all you'll remember there is always room at my house for another lantern.

These two shelves are a mix of old favorites . . .

Like this tiny bird I've had for years. . .

And new favorites like this cute sign the neighbor picked up for me when she went out of town - Isn't she the sweetest!

There is even a mix of new crafts and old ones.

I painted the garden sign years ago, and placed a old finial in front of it on one side,

And cute birds on the other side.

You may remember the boxwood wreath I made a couple weeks back.  I've balanced it out with two pretty sugar bowls.  I love the contrast between the green and white.

I guess this photo just emphasizes that thought.  I think it's my favorite photo of all the ones I've taken for this post.  I just love all the different shades of white and the dusty tipped green branches. 

It's so pretty to me.

And of course, last but not least - - another lantern. 

Aren't these little jar tea lights adorable.  I found them at the dollar section of Target.

So there you go.  My springtime hutch.  What do you think?
