Dressing up for Spring!
I've been dressing up my home and my fun dress form for Springtime! She loves her pillow ticking skirt! And she adores wearing her vintage jewelry!I'm letting her borrow my $3 Gap jean jacket I found at the thrift store.Here are my sweet vintage bluebirds. They look happy like those birds I hear outside my window! They know Spring is almost here!I love pastel dishes with flowers. They are just so pretty and cheerful!My favorite teacup! I'm thinking of painting my kitchen that lovely shade of soft aqua blue!Delicious pink plate. Not vintage, but a Rachel Ashwell plate from when she had a line at Mervyns. Wish I had bought more of them back then!
My mama bought this yummy plate for me at Gatherings, one of my favorite antique stores.Oh dear, I just realized that I have all my favorite dishes on one hutch.... hope my boys don't find a way to knock it over!Love this cute "dishes" flash card!
These soft pastels are so calming and peaceful.This pretty vintage Madonna was a $1.50 bargain at the Salvation Army.Beautiful chintz and that shade of aqua blue is perfect. Isn't my 1/2 pt. pitcher so cute?Here is the top of my hutch with more yummy vintage goodness. My mom gave me that hatbox lid that has lost it's box. It has the prettiest vintage wallpaper.Graceful curves on this pretty white pitcher.
One of my favorite plates. It was my husband's grandmothers. Isn't it gorgeous?It's so lovely here today. I hope it is warming up where you are. Happy (almost) Spring!

I found this fabulous old vintage door last weekend and I love it!!! I have wanted one for years and this one is the prettiest shade of aqua blue! It has inspired me to redecorate this corner of my little cottage.
My 10-month-old baby Dylan loves this baby doll head almost as much as I do. She seems pretty happy up there sitting on the old books.
Pretty sconce I found at the antique mall. It's just dripping in crystals. Not sure if I will leave it gold or paint it white.I'm really loving this look- vintage, shabby, country, cottage, junk chic? Whatever you call it, it makes me feel happy!Yummy millinery rose and a vintage lace runner draped over the chippy old door. This is my favorite part of this corner.One of my pretty half dolls- I think she's dreaming of Paris in Spring.
I know I am! Maybe someday....
Are you dreaming of Spring? Michelle xoxo
