Farmhouse Style Spring Decorating


When I consider farmhouse style decorating for spring, I think of the simple 
joys of this season, where new life can be seen throughout nature. 

A rustic nest and a few eggs atop some weathered books...



Some whimsical baby birds and a bunny in the windowsill
 (that will hopefully catch the kiddos' eyes and imagination...)


Some speckled eggs on Spanish moss under a little cloche...


Burlap eggs and baskets add some texture to these kitchen shelves.


My Dad brought us these beautiful hand-painted eggs (below) back from his travels in Europe. This is only part of our collection! Over the years, our three boys have had many Easter egg hunts with these eggs, as one hides them and the others search for them. The thrill of the hunt! (We flea marketing, yard-salers can relate! :)

The framed felt nest with felt eggs art was a gift from a sweet friend.


Flowers collected from the garden and placed into a vintage blue mason jar...


As beauty seems to spring up each day now, I'm reminded of this verse...


I'm so glad you stopped by today! I always love hearing from you...

  3. Love your fresh feel to spring and all the neutral in your space makes for a welcoming of colourfull blooms and the eggs of many colour.

    Your home is so inviting, and I love the boots under the bench.

  14. Julie, I'm visiting from Something to Talk About.....your home looks so warm and comfortable. As I was going through the photos, the floral arrangement stopped me, and I wondered where exactly you're located. I live in West Virginia, a zone 7a region, and your area is one I'd love to soon travel to see. There's so much right here in our own country, and it looks like you've found yourself a beautiful slice of life!

    1. Hi Rita - I know what you mean! There are so many regions in the country I have yet to visit! As you may have seen on the blog, we live about 25 minutes outside of Seattle, just beyond the city limits. We are enjoying a semi-rural area so much as our three boys are growing. I grew up in California... so the vegetation here is much different!! There is always green here! But, you know what that means... there is also lots of rain! ;) So glad you stopped by... ~julie
