Lightening Up

The birds are singing, the buds are starting and it finally feels like spring!  As I start lightening up our rooms for spring, I can't help but always return to my favorite whites, blues and soft grays...




Ironstone is displayed throughout the seasons...

Although Easter is over, these hares are too cute to put away.  They still want to peek around and see what's going on in the room.  A lovely vintage embroidered towel rests nearby.

I've been starting to collect flea market treasures to add to my Etsy shop.  I'll be listing a new Spring collection soon, with a mix of handmade and vintage wares.  This book was a recent find, but I'm not sure I can part with it:

Speaking of markets, please visit Sandi's blog to see her posts here and here on the amazing "At Home with White" event!  I wrote about this fabulous annual event in my Somerset Life article and this post.
You don't realize how sad I was to have missed it this year, but the weekend conflicted with my son's First Communion workshop so I was unable to attend.
But at least we can all enjoy Sandi's photos and hear her big news (go see)!!!  Great job, Wrentham Country store!

I love your white pitcher with the ribbon tied around it! Yay for Spring:) I don't think I'd be able to part with that little book either so I don't blame you.

I did see Sandi's post and it looks like it was an amazing event!

Your little bunnies are just too cute, Susan! I can see why you want to keep them out awhile longer:) I also adore your vintage trophy and silver pieces. How fun that you are hunting for flea market treasures for your shop!
