Hello Dear Readers!
Are you enjoying some great Spring weather?
We are enjoying it here
with less pollen and blue skies and fabulous temperatures.
Since Spring is in the air,
I decided to place some Spring decor
in the Great Room
of the Berry Patch House.
It all began with a pair of my treasures that I brought home
from my Road Trip to Boston to see Amy (Maison Decor).

SPRING DECOR DETAILS AND A TREASURE REVEAL
Can you spy the pair of the treasures that I purchased from Amy?
It’s the Pricket Candlesticks! Love them!
Amy actually purchased them a while ago
from another blogger and now this blogger owns them 🙂
I guess you can say that we share the joy!
Pricket sticks?….candlesticks? …
they are candlesticks that have a spike at the top
to hold the candle. However, many people just love the look
of just the candlestick, like me,
so there are no candles on them for now.
I must say that my hubby said that
I forgot to put candles on them!
I explained to him that this is one of the ways
they are displayed and I got the
look of me having two heads.
Rather than placing a colorful Spring design plate on the mantel,
I placed this pretty grape leaf Majolica plate that I had previously
purchased from Always Home in Durham, NC
This sweet vintage green transferware Chinoiserie crock by Mason
seemed to be the perfect accompaniment
to the Majolica plate. This was also found at Always Home.
I placed orchids in the white ironstone tureens.
Love that they are so low maintenance!
I try and keep the decor simple here in the Berry Patch House,
using flowers as my seasonal decor as much as I can.
I have been gathering pots of hydrangeas . . .
keeping them in an area
that I call my “future planting area”
so that I can be assured that as soon as we start the landscaping
of the new house,
I can turn the hydrangeas plants over to the landscaper
a.k.a., my hubby.
I placed this potted hydrangea
in my very favorite blue and white piece,
an antique chamber pot.
Tulips just say Spring . . .
so I placed these pretty pink tulips in a mint julep cup
and placed them on the table next to the sofa.
I placed my newly acquired
vintage Mason red transferware mini tureen next to the
mint julep cup of tulips as they went together beautifully,
Shall I say where I found this tureen? … you guessed right!
Do you tend to use flowers to enhance your decor for each season,
bringing the outdoors in?
That is truly my go to way of adding seasonal decor . . happy decor!

On another note . . . things are happening at the new house . . .
no house yet,
but lots of earth being dug and lots of huge boulders
continue to be unearthed.
The foundation should be completely dug
and graded by the end of this week. Yay!
Have a most beautiful day everyone!
