Spring Puttering...

Good morning.

A few pictures of some things I picked up in Texas. I am so happy with all my purchases ... I thought I'd share what I've been doing. Just puttering around ... decorating for Easter and Spring.
I've been picking on the big
corner in my entry again.
My new birdcage. Sigh.
It's a big one! 
It stands almost 5 feet tall! 

 Love the rust...
 I also swiped the tray from my 
family room coffee table and put 
it in the living room on the ottoman.

And I set the kitchen table.
 Love my little Tulips...
 And my new lazy susan 
I picked up in Texas. 
It is made from an old 
wine barrel stains and all.

And finally a cute little ironstone
pitcher I picked up too. One tiny little
chip made it affordable.

Have a wonderful Saturday. Thanks for stopping by!

Wonderful treasures.....the birdcage is definitely Texas size, just like I like it!!

Oh my goodness! I just love those little tulip topiary (s)! Way to cute!

Regarding the cans...
I saw them at Quick Trip and Circle K
I think they are considered more of a convenience item... I had seen them at Target and Walmart but maybe they don't have them anymore??? eek ... That certainly makes it more challenging! LOL! Thank you for coming by. I totally thought this would be right up your alley! :) You little embellisher you! :)

Oh Karen, I think you made the best purchase in Texas with that birdcage!!! LOVE IT!!!
All your Spring decor is beautiful and making me wish I would get off my tush and do some decorating around here too. All I've been doing is Spring cleaning and everything is in a big mess.
I love all the lovely flowers you are keeping around you my friend.
Just so pretty!

Karen, I love your birdcage and your vignette looks fabulous. I love that corner, you can put so much in it. Your eggs are all gorgeous. Such a pretty tablescape and the lazy susan is unreal stunning. What a find. Everything looks so pretty. Glad you had a great time. Hugs, Marty

CHERI said...

I love the birdcage. I (unfortunately) sold an old one on a tall stand several years ago, thinking I no longer wanted it. Oh how many times I have regretted that decision!!!

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Hi Karen,
Oh my goodness that is one amazing birdcage! And I love what you've done with it! And look at that darling table you have set, I would love to come right over!
Oh and that Lazy Susan is like the neatest thing!
How's life been treating you lately?
I am looking forward to summer and maybe a trip or two. Will head to AZ. when the baby is born but yuck not fun in July.
(the weather that is)
I will probably go back in October too, maybe a get together?
Other than that just part-time work and full time Grandma-hood!
But I love it and I wouldn't trade it for anything!
You take care girlfriend,
Big Hugs,

Mary Ellen said...

I just love that birdcage, Karen! It's gorgeous and the rust adds to it's charm. The ironstone pitcher was a wonderful find too. I wouldn't mind the little chip either.
Have a great day :-)!
