The sweet little vintage print which showed up in my previous post is one I've had for years. Previously it was on display in the guest room. Once the guest room became a nursery for Jaxson, the little girl prints were relegated to the place where pictures that I love but don't know where to hang languish. . . under the bed. Are you shocked by that admission? I must admit I don't really like it, but I'm at a loss for where else to store them. I don't like the idea of the attic as it gets sooo hot there in the summer and we don't have a basement.
Recently I was reading a blog and the author said that she has a rule in her home... NO storage under the beds. I love that idea, but seem to be at a loss for how to achieve it. So, I did the next best thing and brought out all of the pictures stored there and did a major edit of the collection. It gave me the opportunity to use my favorites in a new context. Previously I might have thought the little girl pictured above didn't look like she belongs in a family room, this year I think she looks right at home with the other vintage spring-themed items. So once I got done decorating the big shelves, I carried the theme over to the wee little shelves.
It gave me a spot to display another little vintage print.
A little boy enjoying the wonders of the spring garden.
I spent a few hours in my own garden yesterday.
I was on a mission to eradicate wild onions from the landscaping around the waterfall. It seems there were a lot of them buried in the mulch and now they are popping out everywhere. It's a "fun" challenge to dig down far enough to remove the entire bulb. I considered it a major score when I was successful :D.
Today I'm happy to stretch the aching back muscles.
I hope you're enjoying your weekend.
Are you seeing any signs of spring yet?
