Springtime Table and Nature

When I heard the announcement about It’s a spring thing party I knew I wanted to be a part of it.



So many talented and amazing bloggers strutting there stuff!


I don’t really do much decorating for spring.

My decor is pretty neutral with some splashes of color.

Adding elements from nature is always a must!


So I thought I would share my spring table in our kitchen.

Just an old farmhouse tote.

I found that little watering can on a recently while out shopping.

And of course I love adding fresh flowers.A bunch found at the market.

I cannot wait to pick flowers out of my own garden.But today it is snowing…..AGAIN!


This is a real bird nest.And those are real eggs.

Someone was throwing this bird nest out.

I rescued it gave it a couple coats of clear varnish to keep it from falling apart.

Those eggs were found at a store years ago.

I can’t remember which store.


I made some slight changes to this barn door too.

See those rusty horse shoes?

I found those recently from that same lady I bought that chippy pink table from.


Aren’t they sweet? Someone added those embellishments.

A sweet dried rose so pretty.

Love the soft look of  the dried rose with the rustic rusty old horse shoe!



A simple Spring centerpiece for my kitchen.

I hope you are going to join in on the party too!

Are you ready to strut your stuff or simply be inspired???

    It looks amazing as always. I love the purple so pretty and really pops on the kitchen table. I know this snow is really beginning to get to me!!!!! I feel like this is the longest winter!!!! The sun is trying to poke it’s head out this afternoon by me but it is still snowing.

    I love your vignette, Ann! Those gorgeous purple flowers add just the right touch. Another thing I really like is your mug tree. I’ve never seen such a tall one. Do you remember where you got it?

    Beautiful. A freind found an old horse shoe this week, and I love the little embellishments on the ones you show. I am going to do something with mine now that I have inspiration. Thank you.

    I love the purple flowers, and the pop of pink in your little primitive table, Anne. As always, your home looks so fresh and cozy.

    I’ve joined in the Spring Linky party too.. this is so much fun! I love your pretty flowers, I’ve got a similar jug that I’m going to take down and fill up with some color. It’s snowing here, so the addition of colorful flowers is a perfect one to cheer everyone up:D xx Smidge

    Your table looks very pretty, Anne. Love the rust and roses, too : ) I did join the party also, with my “Spring in {Half} the Living Room” post. I’m hoping to work on my table this week! I’d love it if you’d come visit me back when you have time! Have a great week.

    As usual, your house is lovely.

    My favorite antique store in town has a cup rack like yours – I know that isn’t what it is called. Anyway, I am trying to figure out where I would put one because I love yours.

    Hi Anne! I’m loving your horseshoes and the bottle rack with the mugs. We’ve got the snow here, too. Where, oh where, is spring! At least we can find it in blogland, right?

  12. says

    Your new purple flowers are gorgeous against all the white in your room! I love those cute horseshoes decorated with flowers too. They look like something you would find in Rachel Ashwell’s ranch!

    Your springtime centerpiece is lovely Anne. I have a sweet neighbor (male) who always brings me any bird nests he finds in his yard because he knows that I like to decorate with them!

    Hi Anne, first of all I adore the spring-ness over here, and taking notice of all your little pulled together pieces you creatively made and vignettes of rustic beauty…like that rustic wood caddy on the center of your rustic white table. I love the feel of your romantic spring farmhouse. I have yet to find or buy new a French bottle drying rack that I love so, yours is a perfect fit right where is catches our eye !

    Thank you for sharing your spring beauty with us, and best of all taking the time to grace some of your time and beauty over at my place.

    See you soon, keep inspiring all your whiteness :))

    Great arrangement…I love the purple. And, your creativity with the old barn door. I headed over here from SSS, and am so glad I did!

    Have a nice weekend.
