More Spring Corners!

I love to change out the accessories for the different seasons. One of my favorite places to do this is on my mantel. The white tin bucket on the hearth is a wonderful way to celebrate the changing seasons. It is fun picking out different flowers that coordinate with the seasons. I get all of my flowers at the Dollar Tree as well as the plates that were on the dining room table yesterday! You CAN create a warm and cozy atmosphere in your home with very little money and a little creativity!

This is the crackle finish bunny that "hopped" home with us the other day!

The picture doesn't show up well, but the eggs are nestled inside a vintage pickle dish!

I have another tin bucket the sits on our piano that I change with the seasons, as well! The bunny and bear have found a comfy spot to sit and enjoy the day:)

You would never know you got some of your stuff from the Dollar Tree! I love the flower stems in the last picture. Thanks for coming by my site and for your prayers and sweet words.

You inspire me to get Easter decorating started when I arrive back home this weekend! Sadly I say I am homeward bound on Sunday!

I love your cherry blossoms. Ours should be in full bloom in a couple of weeks.

Everything looks lovely! I just adore bunnies, and you have such a nice collection. You are inspiring me to get out my "Spring" decoration box and get busy! LOL I'm also ready to get some new flowers in my window boxes...they are looking 'sad' right now!
Keep's like a breath of fresh air to pop in at 'A Place Called Home'!
Have a great day!

Lovely decorating Susan. Everything is just beautiful as usual. I see that you are a fan of the Dollar Tree, too...they have some great items if you just take the time to look. I can't believe you found your plates there...they're gorgeous...did you just find them recently? I have some errands to run this afternoon and it just might be time to stop at the Dollar Tree again! Another place that I have found some great items is Big Lots if you have one of them in your area.

Kim, I found those plates at the Dollar Store three years ago. What I did was I bought two plates for each table setting. The bottom plate is solid green and I found thought the flowered salad plate was a perfect match. I love how they look together. If you have Dollar Tree that is the place to go because they have LOTS of dinnerware for, well, a DOLLAR! DUH!! LOL:)
