Spring Entry

When we moved into the lease house, I realized that there were some decorating spaces that I wanted to reproduce from the other house. Case in point my Entry area. I tried other mirrors and lamps and trays, but always came back to this combination which were used in my previous Entry.

It felt comfortable and gave me a semblance of familiarity and "home". This small dresser isn't as big as the console from the other Entry area, but I was able to place most of my pieces there, and I can change things up just a little for the Holidays and Seasons.

...White clock, silver tray, old books and my lamp.
Still room for a small basket and one of my sheep prints decoupaged on canvas.

One of my little chalk lambs, probably from a vintage Nativity set.

The canvas I used for this print was too large, 
but I just did a little tromp l'oeil to make it work.

Just a subtle low key nod to Easter and Spring.
(I have some things to share soon that really do scream Spring)

One thing I did add to the lamp was this tassel cord.
Remember when we had to have tassels on every key and piece of furniture?
OK, maybe it was just me who did that.

Well, this old framed print that you can see in the mirror reflection looks totally wackadoodle, but I'm standing close and there's not much space. The frame looks all warped, but it's not. I looked for a signature but couldn't find one. If you know anything about either one of these prints I'd love to hear. 

Everytime I come back here from the house packing, I have a few decor things stashed in my bag. It's so hard to be packing bunnies and all things Spring in cardboard boxes, when all they want to do is come back here and be "vignetted". that's a new word I just made up for using things in a "vignette". I think all the work is getting to me,  or maybe I just have Spring Fever. probably both.
