The Spring Forecast is Green

One of the things I loved most about having a shop space or antique mall booth was the styling and designing. I always had plans for each new Holiday and Season rearranging furniture and displays. That part was something I truly enjoyed, and I've really missed those days that I could bring in some new items and then just "play". Taking a color scheme and expanding on it with prints, dishes, linens, and accessories was and still is, one of the best ways for me to get my creativity and inspiration flowing.

We've had cold, gray skies, and snow for too long,
 and today I was ready to bring in some Spring! 

I just grabbed a few things that were "green"
and found some good light on the Dining Room table.

A vintage embroidered foot stool,  faux paperwhite,
 some green transferware, and my little lamb porcelain box.

I found this ribbon 75% off in the Christmas clearance.
It looked much more Spring-y to me than Christmas.

Last Fall I found this print of an English Cottage to add to my collection...

When you can't get a jump start on decorating ideas, take a few things that have been speaking to you and just start "playing". Add and subtract. Then move things around. Taking pics helps to give you ideas on placement and content. Just see what works together.

I think I may leave this out for a few days, 
and see what else I can bring into the mix.

I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who joined in on the first Share Your Syle Party. We had a great opening turnout. If you didn't find us, then click here. I'll be hosting next week, so I hope you'll come back and join in Wednesday at 6PM Central.

And I've just created a Pinterest Board, Share Your Style, of some of the highlights, that I'll be adding to each week. Hope you'll come by and join in. I really loved seeing all your "style"!

Have a great weekend, we have more cold,
 frozen, white stuff on the way. brrrr.
