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!
Michelle xoxo
