It's Spring in the Barnyard

After Christmas,   I decorated the formal dining room with roosters & hens.    I didn't want to do a complete make over for spring,  so I just added to the theme that I already had!  The first thing I added was this sweet little pink pig..... next were some ducks, lambs, bunnies.......you can see where this was heading, lol!   When I was all done,  I had a complete barnyard!

If you would like to see how the room looked before with the rooster & roses theme  click here....http://penny-pennystreasures.blogspot.com/2014/02/roosters-roses.html

My spring barnyard has some chicks & lambs....
bunnies....

Roo's.....

ducks.....
Bunnies & tulips.....

Sweet lamb in a cloche....cabbages.....lots of things you would see in the barnyard or on a farm.

I set the dining room table with some dishes that I purchased over the past week end.   I found them at an antique mall in Amarillo Texas....$12 for 6 plates....
and a cream and sugar.  

Maybe I'll can find more pieces later.

I will add some colored eggs to some of the vignettes when it gets closer to Easter.....an Easter barnyard?
Yep.....I will just add some Easter to the existing vignettes and call it good!
Thank you so much for stopping by to see my spring barnyard.....come back soon!

  1. Everything is sweet, but I have to say that the pig won me over. I think I need a pig in my decor.

  2. I'm thinking Charlotte's Web . . . Penny's web? All your animals are cute and I like the dishes all around. Your new greenhouse posts are most wonderful!

  7. Well, of course I love it all. I've been doing terrible at blogging. I am loving getting ready for Easter decor..just doing Springtime..but rabbits are something I have out nearly all year (except at Thanksgiving and Christmas and then I just tuck them behind something. Nests...The nests are out..another "most of the year" thing. But..yep..a little pig would be a cute addition. Yours is about the sweetest one I have ever seen. Piggies have not been my thing..but what's a barnyard without a little pig. Springtime in the barnyard! What a cute theme, Penny! The green tulips! SO perfect, especially the the Lily of the Valley vase. HOW I love the way you think!! :) I never visit you without seeing something I think I cannot live without! Hmmm..are you good for me..or bad for me??? LOL
    Big hugs!
    Love,
    Mona

  9. Penny,
    Everything looks so pretty and Spring like. I am at work and it is snowing outside!! The rain turned to snow and it dropped from 50 to 18 degrees and everything that was wet froze solid. I thought I was not going to get my car open because the doors were frozen shut!!
    No signs of Spring here for sure!!

    Hugs,
    Deb
