Spring Home Tour

Psssst… this post *might* contain affiliate links: see my disclosure here.

A month ago, my friend Jen at Migonis Home emailed about a Spring Home Tour (and GIVEAWAY!) she had planned. With 3 feet of snow outside and gray as faaaaaar as the eye could see, I decided it would be a fun chance to play ‘dress up’ with my dreary winter home! Until I started blogging, the concept of decorating for spring never occurred to me. But… that joyful ache for the flowers and the green grass and that smell in the morning when spring is so close you can taste it… I love that. For me bringing that feeling into the house meant lots of flowers and greenery and sweet little accessories. Nothing complicated or intricate. Just color and textures and new LIFE!

I’ve been keeping my eye out for dainty little containers at the thrift stores over the last few weeks, and have scored a nice little assortment!  These look perfect with flowers and candy on the mantel.

Shop my favorites!

As much as I love fancy cut flowers, this time of year, basic spring bulbs are so inexpensive and just sitting there for the taking at the grocery store. When left in the dreary pastel foil or the green plastic pots… nothing special, but a thrifted basket and some moss and… such a pretty spring vignette.

After seeing the talented Bold Abode’s pixelated canvas, I’ve been obsessed with this graphic color-play. I made that pixel art and the colors are perfect for spring.

The best part about this spring house tour was that the amazing Kirklands gave us a gift card to help spring-ify our homes. Can you handle how amazing these accessories are?! This glass container looks even spring-ier just filled to the brim with jellybeans. (And no, I will not show you how it looked a few hours after I took these pictures.) See that green glass jar with the little bird on top? Kirklands. Home run.

I also picked up this killer gold orb… It works all on its own or with a dollar store rabbit container tucked inside for spring!

Colors are such a big part of spring for me, that I wanted a place just to bring together some of my favorite shades. The glass bunny was a Homegoods find and everything else was just plucked from around the house or my stash/ hoard. My refinished ‘antique’ bread bowl now holds some moss orbs… love. (Oh, and those flowers are totally fake… but I’m a sucker for poppies and lily of the valley!)

I found this great enamelware pot at the flea market and planted some grass inside for a cheap and easy little hint of green. (I could plant grass in anything this year!)

In the front hall, I love having some greenery. My track record with these maiden hair ferns is zero. I’ve consistently killed every single one, but perhaps in my old age this will be the one to break my losing streak! I also have a grocery store shamrock plant leftover from St. Patrick’s day. A little moss bird is perched under the bell jar. (Oh, and not to beat a dead shopping horse, but the owl planter? Kirkland’s.)

  1. You have TOTALLY inspired me! I am going to the basement to find the Easter decorations which are lumped in with some other holiday which escapes me just now. I will deck my house AND our vrbo house out with some springy wonderfulness! THANK YOU CHARLOTTE!!

    1. Ha! I felt the same way! I set up these little vignettes and pulled out pretty colors and bought a few flowers and was like WHY DIDN’T I DO THIS SOONER?! 🙂 Happy to share the spring love! xx

  2. I love your Kirkland scores, especially the green glass bottle and the gold orb. I’m considering the orb for my home. I wanted to let you know that I think the vessel is actually milk glass. Also, I have learned through experience that the maiden hair fern can almost never get enough water. I water mine almost daily.

    1. Seriously?! Yay! I always google how to tell the difference between milk glass and just boring ol’… white glass. So exciting! And that’s a great tip re. the fern… I feel like I always OVERwater so as a result am probably too stingy. Fingers crossed! 🙂

  3. Hi friend! Hopping over (wine in hand) to admire your beautiful Spring Home Tour! You have so many marvelous little glass treasures – I just adore them! I also fell for that gold sphere from Kirkland’s. Picked up 3 of them because, oh, you never know. 😉 So fun being on this tour with you and am loving your spring home!

    1. Hi Erin, Unfortunately I found this at a flea market (turns out it’s European wiring so I need to rewire it…), but search for “Moravian Star Pendant”… that’s what they’re called and places like Shades of Light carry them! Good luck!!!

  4. Charlotte I’m a little late touring everyone’s homes this time around… I’ve loved taking part in the tour with you and the other girls. Such a great group of talented people. 🙂
    I adore all your Spring touches!! Your vignettes are so pretty. The stacks of books in the same color schemes really jumped out at me. I love all as I am an English major. Anything that includes books makes me so happy! 🙂 I also got the gold orb from Kirklands. So pretty… It’s my favorite new item. 🙂
    Hugs and I hope you have a great rest of your week! xoxo Kristy

    1. Thanks so much Kristy!! I feel like there are some I missed too… keep forgetting to double back! I love decorating with books too! Art History major but the old covers get me every time. So funny how many of us grabbed the gold orb… great mind. 🙂 xx
