Welcome to Little Red House. In honor of spring, we have made a little basket of faux flowers to hang on the front door. Come on in and see the little bits of spring that have sprung up in the library.
This faux arrangement sits in one corner of our library mantel. The urn came from the sale's rack at Michael's last year, and I just got the bird's nest with eggs and the silk flowers and foliage yesterday. The little plate is Godinger's, from TJMaxx. Our library is done in golds and greens and cranberries, so traditional spring pastels don't work here. But I love the fresh greens of the hydrangea and the speckled bird's eggs. I seem to have included a lot of bird-themed decorations this spring.
Let's move onto the kitchen. Here is an arrangement I got several years ago in HomeGoods. It sits on the antique library table that serves as our kitchen island. The little carved cat was brought back from a trip to Vermont.
We have a bit of old architectural salvage that we use as a shelf in the kitchen, and that's where you will find this old tin, with it's image of a duck, and another bird's nest with berries, also from Michael's.
I made this arrangement, also in the kitchen, a few years ago. The silk flowers and the trellis box both came from HomeGoods. I just put them together with a little Spanish moss.
Finally, in keeping with the bird theme, here are two little ceramic birds from Michael's. They were a steal at 40% off. Don't you love Michael's? :)
