Spring Blossoms

Spring has come to our front yard!  The Bradford pear trees are in full bloom.

We have about 15 of these beautiful trees that line the circular drive way in front of our house.

H brought me in some branches to make a bouquet to set on my Hoosier desk....I showed you the desk a few days ago and I said that I was going to change out the chair....well, I did...
I brought in a wicker rocker and put a comfy cushion and soft pillow in it....

I bought some new green plates at the Dollar  Tree  earlier this week.     .I added a white  ironstone plate and a chintz plate to the place setting that I am going to serve our lunch on today.    I also bought a couple of green glasses to do a little spring arrangement in....
I got the moss rocks at the Dollar Tree also...

I brought H in a new comfy wicker chair too!   We are really enjoying our new sitting area in the kitchen!
I decided to make a few more changes in the kitchen.   I hung a chalkboard in the pass thru to the dining room, the cute  glittered lavender bunny is from the Dollar Tree too.  If you want to decorate your home on a budget....go to the Dollar tree!.

Here  is H's place setting, ....he is using the tea cart for his table. 

Isn't this little tea pot cute....
 I have a spring tablecloth on the tea cart....


This is the vignette that is on the wall behind H's chair...

I have an Easter table cloth on the stool....

I  love spring blossoms......

Welcome Spring!!!

  6. Penny,
    Your trees are breath taking!! You saw what my yard looks like today with 3 inches of snow now...LOL!!
    Love the wicker chairs!! I can't wait until I can clean mine off and set up my little patio.... But I think that that will be in another month or so at least....
    So many pretty things in this post. Love the chalk board divider..... You know that I have curtains hanging in my pass through... I also have the same bunny and i bought a cute butterfly too. They are in my Easter Tea post...

    Hugs,
    Debbie

  13. I'll have to get up to the in-laws this week. There is a home on the way that has Bradford pear trees, and they look lovely when they are in bloom. That, and when my little dwelling grows up, it wants to look like yours!

  23. My heavens your home is so cozy and welcoming. I'd so love to have a nice little area like yours to sit and chat, have some snacks or lunch. Most of all I am disgustingly envious of your hoosier. That is my wish is to get another hoosier for our kitchen. We had one in KY but when we moved to CO I thought I didn't have room for it so sold it. Boy was that ever dumb. Anyway, love all your awesome goodies in your home. Enjoy them.
    Happy Easter
    KY had trees like that and I loved them but oh boy am I allergic to them. We had to leave KY due to my darned allergies, asthma, and arthritis, no fun at all and I loved it there.

  24. Forgot to ask you if the plates in background on your hoosier behind the lamb are Homer Laughlin? I love that stuff. Can't find it in Grand Junction, CO but sure did in KY. I've subscribed as I really have enjoyed what I've seen of your blog.

  27. Oh, yes. Welcome to Spring! Nice to use your Bedford Pear blooms inside. I love the lamb -- I think I need one! :D I have plenty of bunnies, but no lamb. I love the embroidered linens. One of my favorite things. Happy Tea Day!

  28. Penny, those pear trees in blossom are so beautiful! The scent must be wonderful. Your table setting is really sweet and it's fun to find such great deals at the dollar stores. I like your vintage linens and the wicker chairs look great. Happy Spring to you! I'm visiting from Tea Time Tuesday at Sandi's. Pamela

  37. I love the blossoming trees, and the cozy sitting area you and H have created. I can just imagine sipping tea there while gazing out the window.
