On top of the Cupboard...

We've been working hard lately to get more boxes opened and unpacked, so we'll have space to bring more over from storage. It's a domino effect, with storage shelving going into the basement storage room first, then organizing the garage and getting Holiday tubs and decor stacked up and out of the way. I'm finding things that honestly I didn't remember I had... and probably don't need. But that's beside the point, because I'm now having to go through box after box of "stuff".

I am finding some of my favorite little things, though.

As I've said before, wall space is pretty limited here, so I have to make sure I really, really want it up. I found my scrolly chalkboard that had been on the Hall Sideboard at the old house, but there just wasn't a good place here at the new house. So, it's sitting on top of my kitchen china cupboard for lack of any other workable space.

I actually really like it there, since the black sets off the birdcage and basket, giving them a little backdrop and contrast. Because my counter tops are black, I feel like I need to balance the rest of the room with small touches of black. You can also see the botanical prints I posted about last week. I'm sure I'll have something else up there soon... I think that's called Decor ADD.

Last week I mentioned that the little pot of faux Iris has been all around the house. So once again, here it is in my latest Spring vignette. It needed a little color up there.

Those pears in the ironstone tureen don't look too Springy, 
but I don't have my hands on anything else as yet.

My birdie is building a nest in a flower pot inside the birdhouse, and she looks like she might not be too happy to have us snooping around up here. Actually, the male goldfinch is the bright one, so this may be Daddy telling us to quit taking pictures.

Do I have too much time on my hands?...

OK, folks...
