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 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.

Welcoming Spring...
Getting my little cottage ready to welcome Springtime with open arms! Spring is my favorite time of year and I really enjoy using all my pretty pastel dishes and other vintage treasures to decorate my hutch!
Vintage lace, plates, chintz, teacups, pottery and all sorts of pretty things all dwell happily together on the shelves.Cute bunnies for Easter fun and Scrabble tiles spelling out "Spring Flowers".I adore this little rabbit and chick! What is more cheerful than Spring decor and colors?Vintage millinery, a cute little ironstone pitcher and a tiny Eiffel tower. Springtime in Paris is something I would love to experience someday!Piles of vintage hats covered in flowers... they make my heart skip a beat!Of course my dress form needed to put on her Springtime finest, also! Now she fits in perfectly!This is actually an outfit I found at Goodwill.
And I also found this one at Goodwill....
and this one, too!
Now my dining room and wardrobe are ready for Spring, but I still have rooms to play with and make pretty!
