This weekend I met a friend downtown for some wandering through a couple of our favorite home stores and some much needed girlfriend time. Look at what we found.
Welcome Spring - I loved the way the sun was streaming in the windows and captured these umbrellas in the ethereal light. Those weathered fence boards were embellished with lettering on top of moss. What a neat window display.
Nothing says spring like little spots of greenery - whether its moss, or plants, or how about some feathers?
I'm crazy about this table which reminds me of our bookshelves which were made by my husband's father years ago.
Birds and birdhouses are sure signs of spring. And hey, didn't we just 'spring ahead' over the weekend…how timely - that old fashioned clock would have reminded you.
This little neutral vignette was punched up with some St Patrick's Day green and screams spring. What's not to love, shiny metal combined with crystals, and how about that lampshade?
Spring is all about renewal and looking forward to those lazy summer days. And what says summer more than burlap, which is still trending in our little corner of the world. I love how it's been paired with this set of industrial metal candle holders.
Simple glass vases have been covered with burlap - a good DIY project, don't you think?
The drums below look rustic and weathered - perfect for small side tables.
Lanterns are still everywhere…I'm thinking about going back for one of these.
If I were in the market for new dinnerware, this set would definitely be in the running. The white ceramic bowls and plates have a hand-thrown feel to them…and what do you think of that pitcher? Anyone know what the item is used for that's featured in the center of the photo?
We didn't. Now we figured out that it was a shot glass, but what was the glass tray for? It had to be something connected to drinking tequila…we asked (actually the woman standing next to us asked) and discovered it was a tray for the lemon and salt. Pretty clever.
Here's the place setting - what do you think?
This shopping day was Hoss approved - sorry I couldn't resist. Although he's too cute for words, he apparently hates to have his picture taken and I had to snap fast - thus not the best shot. His owners told me they have to take him in for professional pictures to get a good photo - I can believe it.
We finished off the day with a little snack and a glass of wine at our favorite spot.
I hope you had a great weekend like I did.
Happy weekend = Happy Monday
