It's April, No Foolin'!

Well here we are in April 2014 and it's time to share pictures of our springtime displays!  Ready or not here we go!

Here is a little table that sits next to the front door:

On a foyer wall hangs this sifter in which I always display a seasonal pinkeep, this one was made by me from a Primitive Betty Freebie pattern:

This is a table that sits in the foyer.  The Charleston Lamp is an item offered in my shoppe.  The handmades are from Pam, Jenn, Barbara, Jackie, and Lori:

A full view of the foyer table:

Perhaps my favorite piece of furniture made by the hubs is what I call my folk art cabinet and this is what I have displayed on it currently.  Most items are antique store finds but the tulips were an ebay purchase from a couple of years ago and the little chalkware bunnies were made by Maureen of Buckbrush Farm:

I changed a few things in my coffee table bowl for spring.  The pinkeeps and hooked mat were made by Stephanie of Olde Colony Primitives, the rabbit was made by Jenn of Rabbit Hill Primitives, and the Precious Pansy Picks are available in my shoppe as well as the Large Rustic Chopping Bowl:

The fireplace:

The fireplace mantel...the turned wood onion bottles were made by Don and Pat of Olde Bittersweet Farm and the candle rod is from Misi of 1890 Gable House Goodes:

This little boot bench that sits on the fireplace hearth is another "made by the hubs" piece LOL...for spring I created this display using items that are all availalbe in my shoppe!...these are mine but I did leave some for you ;)

This olde washstand sits to the left of the fireplace and for spring I've dressed it with a Chamberstick Candleholder and Easy Breezy Blooms from my shoppe:

The black stepback cupboard that the hubs made several years ago is a favorite piece of furniture.  Hanging on the doors are the English Lavender Bouquets and the Adjustable Iron Trammel which are both available in my shoppe:

A close up of the black stepback cupboard gives you a better look at the wonderful hooked mat I recently purchased, it was made by Stephanie of Olde Colony Primitives.  The red Wispy Wildflowers are available in my shoppe:

On the breakfast nook table sits a very olde checkerboard that is a prized antique find and on it for spring I have a sweet bunny that was made by Lori of Homespuns by Lori along with a Hog Scraper Candlestick from my shoppe and in the brown crock I have some Spring Boxwood Shrubs that are also available in my shoppe:

Also in the breakfast nook is this very primitive antique stepback cupboard:

Last but not least, another springtime display atop a small doughbox table the hubs made.  I hope you enjoyed the tour!

What color are your walls? I love it

Hi Robin, thank you for the kind words...the family room walls are painted a lovely shade of sage green called "Weeping Willow"...it's a color of Olympic paint at Lowes, although I took the swatch to Home Depot to have it matched and mixed in Glidden paint because that's the paint we're used to using.
