Late Winter / Early Spring Decorating

After taking down all of the Christmas decorations, I needed a fresh new look for my mantel.


The other day, I came across an estate sell where I found this picture frame, candle holder and pom pom trim. Can I just mention how exciting it was for me to rummage through someones house for treasures. So much fun!

The frame and candle holder went on the mantel. I found the vintage botanical images on Pretties and Posies blog here.


I sewed the pom pom trim onto my curtains, As well as added some twigs. I think the twigs really give the room that Late Winter/ Early Spring look that I'm going for.


I also added some of the pom pom trim to a sweet little rose print pillow I made.


My red couch gives a Pop of color to an otherwise all neutral room.


And Once again little Abby Pug had to steal the shot. She's just part of the decor at this point.


The other side of the room.


Also, I thought I'd show off what I've done to the wall above my bed this time. I know, I know, I keep changing it. Here I just brought in some trellis from the garden. And Again it's just temporary, I still plan to remodel the bedroom in the near future. I think eventually I want some painted shutters above the bed.

So are you all looking forward to Spring as much as I am?

  1. I love pom pom fringe!! I have it everywhere in my house. :) I'm so ready for spring- we got a hint of it yesterday and it was so fun to work in the yard. Our Bella (pug) loves to climb on top of our pillows on our couch too. So cute.

  16. Love your blog! Followed a link from Brenda at Cozy Little House. I love the red sofa! I have been thinking of slip-covering my 2 sofas in red. It would help bring some color to my living room. I also love your pug! My daughter Laura and I just received one last week. He is hoot! His name is Zippy and he is almost a year old! My daughter is in love with him! Have a lovely day!
