Spring Decorating in the Dining Room
I'm happy to have you stop by today. I have been busy piddling around the house today doing a little spring cleaning and decorating.Today I will share the dining room with you.
Come on in...
How do you like my copper bunny? This bunny started out a mint green color, then got painted white a few years ago, and this year, I gave him a coat of copper. I love it! The platter on the stand is a thrifty find from a couple years ago.
I only purchased a few new items this year. The first is these white egg shaped plates from the Target Dollar Spot. They were 2 for $3. Of course, I also purchased the tulips. Here is one of the plates. I only set the table for two this time. Most of my dishes, place mats, and glasses are in sets of four which looks funny with 6 chairs now at the table.
I am thinking of getting rid of most of my dishes I have collected. I may keep two of some of them as well as the ones I have 6 or more of. I'm not sure yet though. The tulips are so pretty today. They were still closed when I brought them home last night. They are such a cheerful flower!
I am enjoying the simplicity of the table. What do you think?
This Old Country Roses bunny teapot looks cute sitting atop the china cabinet.
The buffet stayed the same and I just added the bunny and the chick as well as a couple of the egg plates and a white candle holder with a yellow egg shaped candle inside. I also hung a couple wooden carrots from the picture frame.
I opted to get rid of most of my traditional Easter decor this year. I am taking some to school and donating some as well. I did keep two glass eggs I have had for years. I put them on the bookshelf.
The chalkboard also got a new saying today. It did say...Baby it's cold outside...which really fits today since we are having a cold front this week.
Yesterday I spent the day in Gainesville. I went to Target and shopped a bit, then drove across town to pick Miranda up for lunch. We had Chipotle and then went to Lucky's Market to get a cookie for dessert. I went in to see her office when I dropped her off and met a couple of her co-workers. After I left, I went to Goodwill to kill time before my chiropractic appointment.
I only bought a few things...a Scrabble board game. I cannot pass these up as you know I love using the trays and tiles to decorate around the house. This was $1.99.
I also bought some books. The hardcovers were 5 for $5 and the paperbacks were 2 for $1. I found some really good titles. I also bought one shirt which I did not photograph.
Along with the egg plates, I bought this sweet planter box at Target. I want to grow some wheat grass in it I think. I'm not sure yet though. It was $5. I really have to show restraint at the Target Dollar Spot because they always have the cutest things! My word of the year comes into play a lot when I am there...as I try to be mindful of not only my spending but remembering I have to store all of the things I bring home. They have some really cute spring things in now though if you are interested. The other item I bought will be shared in my kitchen spring decor post in a day or two.
I hope you all are enjoying the week. I am certainly enjoying my time off from work. It is always nice to not have to think or worry about school stuff for a few days. I do hope my students are all well and happy and enjoying their spring break as well. Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope to be back tomorrow or Thursday to share the spring decor in my kitchen.
