Although it is still snowman building season here we are determined to make it feel like spring inside. Macy loves to decorate so we got a start on the weekend in the entryway. We are loving our new parlour cabinet, purchased from a lovely neighbour across the street. It already had the treadle sewing machine removed when she received it in the 60's. It matches an oak chair of Macy's paternal great grandparent's that sits in the entry.
Unfortunately it will be some time before anything is green here in Alberta, so our trusty fake fleurs will have to do for now. If anyone needs snow for a display, I'd be happy to ship you some.
We raided my car and trailer collection at my desk for a hint of pink and summer fun to come. The Mr. Peanut salt & peppers are one of my most treasured momentos. They belonged to my maternal grandmother who passed away when I was ten.
The McCoy shoe, bird and chick, porcelain hand, and crochet thread all came from thrift stores. As an added bonus, the small ball of thread had a large piece of beautifully crocheted lace tucked inside! I am always going to peek inside now when I'm thrifting.
Many thanks to Karen, the wonderful Graphics Fairy for snippets from her extensive collection of free vintage art. It was just what we needed to perk up this frame. The eggs on the painted pot on the cabinet are from her site too.
I love this fresh new site as I come downstairs in the morning. Hopefully it will convince Mother Nature to move things along for us. Thanks for visiting!
