This is the original hardware. There were also two round knobs for the doors which I decided to paint.
This is very close to my original vision. Two little round things were nagging at me.
These are the original knobs. They just wouldn't do.
I found these knobs at Hobby Lobby. I love that they look like crackled glass. Now my vision was fulfilled.
I have turned my attention to decorating a little bit. I've had several good ideas from the recent Spring link up parties.
A white platter from a GW store.
A white pitcher with a very authentic crack and bright pink carnations.
A lovely card a friend made for me.
A miniature tea set Jace bought for me before we were married.
A figurine I had bought for my mother when I was a little girl. Behind is a platter I recently bought at an estate sale.
A real bird nest, which I'll describe in another post and eggs I colored.
I think yellow is so cheerful in Spring. I put yellow roses and daisies in a milk pail with a yellow ribbon. Organic lemons in a tureen from a consignment shop. A citrus scented candle with a lace collar I crocheted myself.
A new accomplishment in my gardening. Tulips I grew. Quite pretty with the two colors. I will have more solid colored tulips soon. The greenery is fennel which grows very well all winter. It gives off a light lemon/licorice scent.
After all the hard work, Rowan helped set some things up for tea.
Within a day things around the hutch were already changing. I hope you'll return to see the future changes.
All around the house we are making remodeling/redecorating changes. Jace has been bitten by the chalk paint bug and is addicted! He's taken a real interest and I think understands the style I'm going for.
The garden posts will start popping up very soon. My planting date is March 25th. I didn't want to risk planting anything on the 20th. We always get a last spot of bad weather. Wouldn't you know it, today and tomorrow will be cold, rainy, and windy. Not a great start for new plants. I am looking forward to this season of all things new.
