Hi Friends, I hope you were able to catch the Spring Home Tours this last week. So much inspiration! I shared my Kitchen Sitting Room and Living Room on Wednesday, but there are a few items where I'd like to share a bit of detail.
I'm a person that never met a tote they didn't love. They go by many names... carriers, toolboxes, totes; but whatever you may call them, you can always count on them to be a fun place to decorate for any season.
I have a little workman's bench in the kitchen that I use as a "coffee table" where I've been keeping a smallish tote. The tote used to be sitting on the kitchen table as a centerpiece, but it was sometimes difficult to move around depending on what I had precariously perched inside.
So, I've started using a Restoration Hardware watering can filled with faux flowers to match the season. Right now it's filled with Jonquils/Daffodils sitting on an antique grainsack.
Back to the decorative tote... now it holds a few vintage clay pots, a little paperwhite stem, and a book on birds and their eggs. A green monogrammed tea towel helps to make it Spring.
Careful!!! don't sit on that!
My favorite corner in the house...
The other tote is here on the mantel. I wanted to try something new and different up here, since it's always a problem trying to come up with items big enough to be seen. If you read my post on Wednesday, I talked about frustration in dealing with a mega fireplace... sort of "let's try and fill up the whole wall" kind of builder thinking.
I brought the little carrier into the kitchen dining space to share it more easily.
I used this tote on my kitchen table at the old house, filled with faux hydrangeas.
If I end up leaving the tote on the mantel I imagine that the hydrangeas will eventually find their way back to it.
Mason jars filled with faux white Tulips and Viburnum.
I sat this little architectural piece in front to give it a little bit of detail.
OK, now I need to crawl back up on the step ladder
and put this back on the mantel.
