It’s hard to believe that just two weeks ago our bedroom was still filled with snowman and Winter quilts adorned the bed.
Now with sunshine streaming in the window it’s time to lighten things up a little for Spring.
I still love my painted wall. It’s the perfect shade of yellow.
Hints of Spring are tucked in every little nook and cranny.
Unmatched bed stands are on each side of the bed. This little table was a $10 thrift find that I painted red. I love how this faux tulip looks as though it’s almost spent. Notice the leaves are starting to yellow?
A Forsythia wreath with a leaded glass bird now hangs on the chippy green door.
The other side of the bed has a white nightstand and a little red bottle holds another spray of Forsythia. You might remember that I painted my bed white a few months ago. I love how it lightened up the room! A Poppy canvas hangs above the bed and a vintage wicker planter holds pots of geraniums.
Often when hubby and I travel we bring home a piece of art. This watercolor is of my favorite home in Charleston. Of course the fact that it was yellow with hints of red had a lot to do with it.
This picture hangs by our fireplace. It’s of a darling bed and breakfast in Door County, WI. We attended a fish boil there. It was so much fun!
Flowers are popping up everywhere.
Geraniums, Peonies, Hydrangeas, and more Forsythia.
Poppy plates hang above the window. Perfect flower for helping to put you to sleep. How could we ever forget what happened to Dorothy and her friends when they ventured into the field of poppies in the “Wizard of Oz”
It’s hard to tell, but these photos were taken in a field of poppies that grow wild in a nearby hillside here in Alpine. It’s a very popular photo spot for photographers. It was an old homestead that the story is that the farmer planted a few poppies and a wild yellow rose. Now the Poppies have spread across the entire hillside. The yellow rose is located close to an old brick foundation. The only thing that remains of the old farmstead.
This large canvas hangs just inside the entry to our bedroom. How I would love to stroll thru that garden!
I love this red bird basket stand. It was a gift from my friend, Peggy years ago. I filled it with red floral balls, my collection of flower frogs, and a couple of aqua jars.
The yellow bench is adorned with bird pillows I made a few years ago along with my splish splash pillow from Pottery Barn. A few of my favorite gardening books, handy for browsing through.
I decorated the top of the red cabinet with birdhouses, an aqua gazing ball, my set of 3 red tin jars, and another poppy plate and bird candle. Some quilts are tucked away inside.
I left my burlap garland draped across the top and shelves are now holding signs of Spring.
I have been saving the best for last. . .My blog friend, Carol from Art and Sand just gifted me with these darling redwork pillows.
Are they not just precious? She had received them as a gift from Manuela from A Cultivated Nest. I had seen them on both their blogs and fell in love with them! Carol recently redid her bedroom in blue and white and decided to gift them to me rather than store them. Sweet lady remembered how much I loved them!
Inside the card Carol wrote, “The greatest gift is a portion of thyself”. Ralph Waldo Emerson.
She is so right! Every time I look at these sweet pillows I think of both her and Manuela. Thank you so very much!!!
Wishing you a wonderful ‘Good Morning’ and a peaceful ‘Good Night’!
I will be sharing with these lovely parties:
