Vintage Pink and Green Spring is definitely in full swing here in Texas, which has me in the mood to decorate in two of my favorite colors.... pink and jadeite green. I think they look so pretty together!I used some of my jadite collection...my cute little pink cabinet...
vintage linens...
and whatever else I could find in these gorgeous colors from around my little cottage.
Of course one needs to use a lot of white to balance out all this color.
Some vintage lace, doilies and millinery flowers for softness.I love this little wire birdhouse cloche I found on clearance at Michaels. I have also used a favorite green chintz plate, perfect for Spring! Isn't this the prettiest pattern and colors?Below is a page from a vintage lace sample book and it's the perfect shade of jadite green!
I even gave my dress form a new outfit.
I forgot to tell you girls that my dear parents came for a visit recently. My sweet mama and I had so much fun antiquing together, as we always do!This adorable green shelf is just one of treasures I found. I'll share the rest of my finds with you in my next post.
Michelle xoxo

Once again you've outdone yourself Michelle in putting together such a lovely springtime display of your beautiful treasures. I especially love that pink table that is the centerpeice of your display.
