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?
