Aqua + Green = Spring

This past weekend, it was out with Winter and in with Spring at my house.  I have so enjoyed my Winter decor on the mantel, in my antique drawer, and elsewhere.  But as soon as I flip the calendar to March, I am ready to 'lighten up' my color scheme and start playing 'Spring.'  You too?!  During the Fall and Winter, our living room/dining room color scheme is green with a cranberry accent color.  For Spring and Summer I take away the cranberry and add aqua as the accent color.

This antique sewing drawer is one of my favorite pieces in my house.  It's so much fun to dress her up for each season.

I found this Fire King tea cup (it also has a saucer) at the Flea Market last fall.  PERFECT for welcoming Spring to my antique drawer.  I raised her up with a little box under the aqua floral fabric so the teacup can be seen.

An antique postcard passed down to me from my Mom-in-Law.  So fun to read the back!

I made this footed hurricane holder by gluing a Dollar Store candle stick to the bottom of a Dollar Store candle holder.  And guess where these beautifully colored Sixlet candies came from...yep...the Dollar Store!

This little chalk board was .50 at Goodwill.  And I was thrilled to finally find a Chalk Pen to purchase!  :)  

I'm smitten with my Coca-Cola crate...a Christmas gift.  I removed the snowman, pine cones, and vintage Christmas book til next Winter.  And added vintage gloves, an antique Atlas jar, and tin cup.

And in honor of the 2 new grandbabies that have been born into our family this year, I put my childhood copy of New Baby by Eloise Wilkens in the front of the stack of vintage Golden Books.  Awwww.

I love the rhinestone buttons on these gloves.

And I couldn't help but add that vintage bunny cutout to the wall...on the back it says in my Grandma's handwriting, "To Donna and Roger"  :)

This is my kitchen corner where I enjoy a bit of pretty among the necessities.  It had snowmen and red/white gingham for the winter.  Now it's aqua and green.

Love this tea towel with aqua rick rack...on clearance at JoAnns last fall.  

Some things don't plant, my hubby and I, and my BLISS!

Sweet little green custard cups along with my biscuit cutters.

And this tea towel which has aqua in it and an aqua tulle ruffle is a NEW find and favorite...on clearance at Marshalls.  Any time I find pretty tea towels on clear or fabric napkins that I love, I buy them.  Super versatile for decorating.

So that's what I've gotten done so far. It makes home feel fresh and new for the new season.  Can you believe we turn our clocks to Daylight Savings Time on Saturday night?!  Unreal.  

Thank you so much for stopping by!
