Bringing In Some Springtime...

Around this time of year, I am always so ready for spring!  I've been bringing in some green...the combination of spring green and aqua is a favorite right now...

I painted wood eggs with aqua paint and made markings with a sharpie and a stain marker...then painted lightly over them again, to soften the spots ...

I downloaded this cute image from The Graphics Fairy

Isn't this a charming image?  I love the 3-D's on my Pinterest Easter board

I spotted the first Robin of the season this week in our backyard, so warm weather shouldn't be too far behind!  Hope you are having some springtime where you live!

Until next time...


  1. LInda very pretty. I love the greens and aqua too. Love the nest with your painted eggs.

  2. Linda,
    It sure is looking like spring at your nest! Love those great eggs that you painted.


  3. So pretty, Linda! I love all your spring touches - the eggs, the china, the old quilt and the sweet, vintage images. Everything looks so nice. xo Karen

  4. Love all that you do! The robin's eggs are so cute. We saw our first robin a couple of weeks ago. Everyone is so ready for spring this year! Mimi

  5. Those robin eggs look so authentic, great painting job. It's interesting that you posted on green and aqua because I've just now started experimenting with aqua. Funny but it's a color I've never used in my d├ęcor before, but it seems to be popular down here. Your vignettes always looks so layered and interesting Linda. I hope it warms up over there. :)

  6. It looks springlike in your home, Linda. Your decoration is lovely. I especially adore the bunny, the pig, the quilt and of course the watering can.

  7. Terrific spring touches! The colour combo of the aqua eggs with the moss is gorgeous!


  8. Such loveliness.... dull and grey here this morning - your post made me smile :)

  9. Love all your spring elements and your photos are beautiful. Yes, spring is almost here! Visiting from Wow Us Wed. Blessings, Diana

  10. Very pretty Spring touches, Linda! I love the blue of those eggs and how they look with the green moss. I added some Spring to our home the other day. Just in time for some snow yesterday!

  11. Linda, your touches of Spring are all so pretty! After yesterdays snow...I'm hoping Spring is right around the corner!! I love the change of every season but I am ready for Spring now!! Enjoy your day, Gail

  12. Love all your Spring accessories.Wish my outside matched your inside!!

  13. Very pretty. Great job on those eggs. Slapping my forehead -why-didn't- I think-of -that !

  14. Linda, You have once again done a fabulous job of decorating. xoxo, Susie

  15. So pretty, Linda! I will have to print out that cute little pot of chicks! Thanks for sharing. Can you tell me what a stain marker is?

    1. Hi Christy! It's a touch-up stain marker for scratches, etc. It's like a paint pen, but stain. I use some made by Minwax. You can find them in the paint and stain area at hardware stores. They come in many different shades and I use them for many things...especially for covering scratches quickly!

  16. ah...spring is sprung at your home :) Love the bunny! Thanks for sharing about the eggs. I hope it will feel like spring this weekend.

  17. Linda
    I like all the Spring touches you've added to your home.
    Thanks for the tip on the egg painting. I have a couple
    in my craft tote.

  18. Optimism. You have more than I do. Either that or one hour west of you we just got more snow left on the ground.

  19. Cute spring touches! I especially like the watering can and the 3d card! Spring is dragging it's way here slowly!

  20. I love all of your pretty touches of spring, Linda! The cute little chick card from the Graphics Fairy is adorable! There are lots of robins here too, I bet they wish they had stayed in Florida longer:)

  21. I love all of your wonderful decorations for spring! Hope the warmer weather will come soon for you.

  22. Hi Linda,

    What a great post!. The beautiful birds nest caught my eye
    and just had to visit!. Love all of the photographs and ideas.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Bear Hugs,

  24. While I love it all-those speckled eggs have my heart...and that vintage card is adorable! xo Diana

  25. What's not to love about everything here!!! Thank you Linda for all your beautiful spring pictures. Just when we thought spring had sprung, we're getting a dose of some much needed rain.

  26. Dear Linda, your home is totally up for spring, with all your
    beautiful items displayed. The "nests" with your agua eggs are so wonderful.
    Hope you will soon see all trhe sun we lonbg for.

  27. Linda, you have such a wonderful gift of just the right items to display for conveying a season, etc. I just felt like spring arrived when I looked at your photos. Very very nice! xxoo Dianne

  28. Beautiful - your items are perfect for spring and the perfect mix of vintage and charming :)

  29. Linda,
    Charming Spring vignettes, dear one!!!
    I am totally smitten with the concrete bunny bust. . .truly unique!!!
    The daffodil cover on the vintage book is an excellent find!
    Love, LOVE, L O V E the asparagus salt & pepper shakers!!!
    Springs arrival has been somewhat trying, but then. . .it is certainly worth the wait!!!

  30. I love the variety in your displays! I love the vintage mix. That quilt piece is so cheery, and I love the little chicks in the pot. What a winter you have had! Glad you are finally getting signs of spring!

  31. So many wonderful pieces to welcome spring. I like all of the little vignettes you have set up, and the great colors that herald in the Easter season!
    Thank you for your comment on the post at Kris's blog for Saturday's Spotlight Feature.

  32. Beautiful pictures Linda...They all certainly radiate of Spring. Although today felt a bit more like Summer than Spring here the warmer weather was definitely welcomed. Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

    Hugs and Kisses,

  33. So many vintage goodies to look at in this post, Linda! I love them all!

  34. I love the colors you've picked to represent spring for you home. They are so cheerful as are your displays. Love that vintage book with the bright yellow flowers, how perfectly displayed.

  35. Poor Mister Robin, he's probably
    wondering where the heck his spring
    is! You know how I adore your styling,
    girlie. Where did you find pussy willow
    this time of year? I love the watering
    can on the stool with them inside : )

    Snow is coming on Friday, poor Robin!
