Hello, Spring Blog Tour/ Day 1

Welcome to the Hello, Spring Blog Tour. 
I'm thrilled you have stopped by. Can we agree that it is wonderful that spring is here?
There will be plenty of spring inspiration this week from wonderful blogs.

First of all, welcome to our home decorated for the season.



Our entryway dresser got a new lantern and some faux succulents.
I just cannot grow real ones for some reason so these are worry free.

Our dining room table is set with our new Spode Delamere dinner plates.
It was fun creating this spring and Easter tablescape.

I collected a few new straw bunnies for the dining room.

The Joanna Gaines inspired wall vases and stems came from Hobby Lobby.
The pink and brown is too cute.


Our white desk was kept pretty simple with a boxwood wreath, books and white creamers.

The baluster and box came from the junky section of my produce and plant store.

I was in the mood for pansies in the living room.

I found the pansy tray tucked away in my entertainment center when we were trying to get our DVR to work. I fell in love with it all over again.
I paired it with a precious antique pansy pitcher.

I adore it.

The kitchen got a few spring touches.

My little glass bunny ornament came from Judith @ Botanic Bleu during her Christmas market.

I've been super smitten with little brown bunnies this spring.
Super smitten is more than smitten- just FYI.

Thanks so much for having a look.

Now pop over and see the other bloggers on the tour today.

I've been following Debra @ Common Ground for years.
I fell in love with an image of her sunroom decked out for the 4th of July.
I visit Debra again and again for all kinds of seasonal and holiday inspiration.

Kelly @ The Essence of Home is another blog that I adore.
I love her painted furniture pieces and styling.
I've been inspired to pull out that brush many times after reading one of her blog posts.

Carol of Bluesky Kitchen is a new friend. She and I met last summer at a blogging event.
Her blog is a great place to get recipes, craft ideas, entertaining tips, and decorating ideas.
I would love to take one of her cooking classes.

That is it for today. Please come back tomorrow.
There will be so much to see.
I hope you will stop back often and visit these amazing bloggers.
