I have teamed up with some amazing blogger friends for the Spring at the Farmhouse blog hop. Each one of these ladies is very talented and has a unique style. Please be sure to visit everyone and show them some love. If you are visiting from Little By Little Farmhouse I am so happy that you stopped by! Her 1836 Farmhouse is stunning, isn’t it?
Welcome to my home! I do not have a grand entryway, just this cozy little spot. I’m guessing you noticed the little piggie in the corner. That’s Neil. He is my shadow and loves to photobomb my pictures. If you follow me on Instagram I often share his antics. He’s a naughty little guy!
My house is beginning to change over from my darker winter decor to everything light, bright and fun. Second to fall, spring is my favorite season. I am not a big fan of cold and snow. If you are a regular reader of my blog you may remember that I had navy blue curtains and dark plaid throw pillows. They have all be replaced by all white everything! The neutral palette goes well with the pastel colors of spring.
I have added lots of flowers (faux of course so I don’t sneeze!) to the house. The mantel was kept very simple with a bird’s nest, some forsythia and an adorable church birdhouse. My favorite springtime picture of my boys in a teal frame adds a little pop of color.
Of course I had to hit up my favorite seasonal shopping place, The Target Bargain Spot, to see what treasures I could find. As usual I was not disappointed! This adorable Hello Spring pillow and the pink wooden tray I used on the dresser made it into my cart in record time. Unfortunately other people in my area have discovered it too so you have to move fast! I love the cheerful colors!
If you look inside the smaller mason jar you will see the most adorable little nest I found at a boutique near me. The larger jar holds faux robin’s eggs.
My cozy reading corner received a few spring touches. You know how much I love my bunnies!
In the opposite corner Harold is sporting a magnolia wreath and I added a fun little chair. It was purchased with the intent of refinishing and selling it but my boys pointed out that it fits here perfectly. They are right! The basket holds fresh eggs that my oldest son collected. My chickens are finally laying again thankfully!
On the opposite side of the entryway is the dining room. A crisp white linen tablecloth and some fun tulips lighten up this space. On a recent junking trip I found these silver pitchers. My mom is going to have something to say when she sees that I displayed them tarnished but I prefer things to be imperfect (like myself).
For the centerpiece I found this adorable greenhouse and filled it with dried boxwood plants and some moss eggs. I love a little bit of greenery mixed with the cotton boll.
My master bedroom also received some spring updates. I changed up the accessories, added some more faux spring flowers and a cute decorative pillow.
In Virginia it has been unseasonable warm and sunny which made it more challenging to take photos! Not that I am complaining!
Lastly we head outdoors. This is the first home I have owned with a front porch and I love it. I am enjoying changing it up for the seasons plus I have a great spot to sit and watch my boys when the summer sun is scorching.
The yard is starting to turn green but still has a ways to go. Crocus and tulips have started coming up!
We are not the only ones enjoying the early spring weather. My animals are loving it too! Neil loves hanging out on the deck and the chickens beg to get out of the coop and free range. Literally. They will start squawking as soon as they see me. We also have rabbits which will be making an appearance on the blog closer to Easter.
I hope you enjoyed touring my home for spring. Head over to Little Farmstead next to see what she has in store for you! Be sure to stop by and say hello to my other friends as well!
