A Bit Of Spring. . .

I've been spreading a bit of Spring around 
On Crooked Creektt's upper level Living Room.

I began by removing the vintage white pottery vases.
Replacing them with my vintage soft aqua blue ones in the Entertainment Center,
seemed the solution for spreading a bit of Spring.

"Mr. Ed" and I hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees most every morning.

Spring is the perfect time 
for them to make their reappearance within my home decor, too.

The mourning doves have returned to On Crooked Creeektt's Gardens, as well.

I placed the pair of faux doves on either side of out mantle clock.

My silver birds, reminiscent of those that scurry across the back deck railings,
are a whimsical complement to my wrought iron crowns.

I purchased new faux ivy 
to enhance the displays within the Entertainment Center. 
It mimics that which grows in On Crooked Creektt's Garden.

Spreading a bit of Spring, 
in the upper level Living Room On Crooked Creektt, refreshes us, once again!

Until next time. . .

Dear Ones,

"Mr. Ed" and I met with the Hand Rail Contractor last week.
We have ordered custom hand railing for our NEW Front Porch (here) and (here).
It will take a minimum of three weeks before the hand railing is completed.
Once completed, it will then be delivered and installed.

I can, honestly, tell you that there were several compromises.
Some on design. Some on placement. Mostly on our budget!
All in all, I feel that both"Mr. Ed" and I, and our Contractor
have chosen hand railing becoming of our 1970's Ranch Style Home!

Thank you for following along on this huge undertaking with me.

your birds certainly do bring on Spring in your house. Hoping to see the final phase of your porch completed...sounds lovely.

Love your touches of Spring! Especially your blue -- that is so pretty in that space. Can't wait to see the new handrail!

Ahh we're thinking alike! I brought out some light aqua tones to add to my plate rack. I love your compositions- you are great with your placement. I bet you are excited about the hand rail! I know it's not cheap to get custom railing but it will be worth it in the end! Can't wait to see what you chose. BTW I have a lot of snow waiting for you up here!!

I love your pretty blue vases. They are the perfect addition for spring! Also love your collection of crowns. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

Love your vases....very pretty and so are the shades of blue. Hope you railings turn out to be everything you want. Amazing how much things cost these days! Love how you brought in the birds too!

Everything is lovely, but I am in awe of your lovely crowns. I think I need to find one.

thanks for sharing with SCY.

I, too, like to decorate with birds, birdhouses etc. when I transition from Easter to Spring decor. Love all your birds and vignettes!
