Spring Decorating!

Hi, girls! Come on in and see what I did! Remember this shelf from Christmas? It's in my dinning room and looks into my long, narrow computer room. I cleared away all the blue dishes and decorated it for Spring! Ta-da! Isn't it pretty? There's Pri's hanging that served as the inspiration for the whole. I was supposed to add the lights at Christmas time but... I didn't! Ha-ha! There in the middle is a pretty cylinder box that Karen gave me in our Valentine swap.

Finally! Johny Jump-Ups in vases again! See my Pinkie cat keeping my computer chair warm?? The small scarf underneath the flowers is the one Tina gave me and all the other linens are from my Christmas box from Juli. Hurray for girl friends!

I liked the lighting in this one.

Here's a close up of Pri's wall hanging- or in this case- shelf hanging!



I'm decorating other places in the dinning room too and I'll show you those when I'm done.
I won't be posting again until Friday but I'm sure I'll sneak over and visit you all because I miss you when you're not here!
Have a glorious day! ♥

Hope you have a great week and have fun decorating!

Holly said...

Good morning, Noelle! The new background might be a bit too dark of a pink... I'll wait a couple days and see.

My week end with the guys includes installing a new hot water heater. Oh joy. ☺ ♥

Holly said...

Thanks, Queenie! I covet my sunshine through here in the mornings! It's all I get in the house until evening. ♥

Twyla and Lindsey said...

As much as I loved your shelves before (because I love your Pfaltzgraff dishes), your shelves look just beautiful now with all the spring additions and Pri's hanging. I will miss you the next few days! Thanks for stopping by 'my' place this morning! Twyla

the shelf looks cute and springtime. That strand of lights makes it look entirely different from the way before.

Holly said...

Hey Diane, it's okay- Winter JUST ended! ☺ ♥

Twyla, I thought of you when I took the pfaltzgraff down! Somehow I'm going to use them in the living room. ☺ ♥

Gin! My long lost friend! ☺ I really like change- as long as it's my idea! ♥

Priscila said...

It looks really really good! I love all the lace and the wall hanging is perfect in that spot~

Katie said...

Everything is so beautiful and ultra feminine, just like you dear Holly! The hanging looks so pretty and adds the right touch. I love seeing how people decorate for the holidays.

Hi Holly.

How wonderful for you that you have those shelves that you can display some of your seasonal decor items on. I love all of your pretty spring and Easter decor. So cheerful!!. Love the new blog background as well. Very cute.

Have a great week!!

Kim

Holly said...

Priscila, I'm glad you caught this post! I meant to write and tell you. Thanks again for the hanging, sweetie! You're so special to me. ♥

Katie... I've never thought of myself as ultra feminine! ☺ Thanks! ♥

Kim, I do enjoy those shelves! I don't change them out as often as I'd like too but it's still fun to dream up ways to do it. ♥

Jenny S said...

Love the new blog background. I will have to go check them out!! Thank you also for the sweet comments about my post! I am feeling a lot better!! Thanks!

Karen said...

Holly, you shelves look so pretty!
Love the lights and all the sweet linens are perfect!!!

Holly said...

Hi, Karen! Isn't it amazing how well those lights work for Spring?! ♥

Pearl said...

I was surprised to see that some pretty hearts had replaced those yummie cuppies! But... I Love the new background ♥

Your shelves are simply Darling with the beautiful linens and Spring decor... The Love that you have for your family shines through... I hope that you enjoy your time with the guys, even if some of it is spent installing a water heater... I will miss your cheerful messages...
God bless...

~hugs 'n prayers~

Holly said...

Hi, Pearl! I liked my cuppies but it seemed too crowded around here. Plus- hearts are more *me*. God's love is so real to me. ♥

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Holly, That is just gorgeous. All the treasures are so pretty displayed with your crochet doilies and linen pieces. I like the piece on your computer chair too. And your kitty keeping it warm for you, is so sweet.

Looking forward to seeing your other spring decorating.
Love the header you have now.
hugs, Celestina Marie

Holly said...

Hi, Celeste! That afghan on my chair is from the 70s! ♥ It keeps my leather computer chair warm in the winter. ☺

Priscila said...

isnt that a sweet print of them washing their clothes? I love it

Holly said...

Hi, Prisicla! ♥

I just got home from a fun day in town but it's a rainy day so now I'm soooo sleepy! ~ YAWN ~

Yeah, that is a sweet print of those little mommies! Ya know, I don't have any memories of playing dolls with a friend... I guess I was a "lone Mommy" - then and in real life, too.
