Hope you all enjoyed your First Day of Spring yesterday.
I have been traveling and a bit in the vacation mode.
While my hubby holds down the fort, I will be visiting my mom while
my brother and sister-in-law are away, as she lives with them,
so my posts may be a bit sporadic the next couple of weeks
and will include some happenings with my mom.
Good thing she does not mind getting in front of the camera.
Today, I shall bring you some Tidbits of Spring in the Kitchen.
For some time now, the ironstone pitchers against the background of the breadboard
seem to be a staple on one of the counters in the kitchen.
It’s so easy to change the look by adding seasonal flowers.
I had purchased Calla Lily plants and as the flowers were getting pretty tall,
I cut them off the plant and placed them in the ironstone pitcher.
I was pleasantly surprised on how long the flowers last in water.
I love using Cyclamen in the Winter and Spring.
This Cyclamen sits in a vintage ironstone mold on stacks of ironstone bowls
which are balanced on a vintage scale.
Another flower that I love in my home for Spring is the Hyacinth.
This one is potted in a blue and white container that I purchased
from a local garden center that had a great variety of the blue and white flower pots.
I seldom take photos of the sink as I find it hard with the large bay window
in the background. However, in speaking to a professional photographer last week,
I found out how I can solve that problem. I’m on it!
I used my blue and white bunny container/bucket for a planter this year.
It sits on the top shelf of my vintage baker’s rack … another Martha treasure.
Now that the kitchen wears its pretty face for Spring, that seems
to complete the Spring decor for this year. However, as you know,
things are always changing around this house.
I shall leave you today with the quote on the tea towel that hangs on the baker’s rack,
from the wise Mr. Carson of Downton Abbey.
“If you’re tired of style, you’re tired of life!”
Have a beautiful day filled with great style!
