10 Minutes to a Room You'll Love

I decided to join The Nesting Place in her 10 minutes to a room you'll love today.


I have two little areas in my house where I put seasonal items just for fun. So, since I can't wait for Spring to show it's head here, I decided to put a little spring in my house in these areas. The first place is in my kitchen. It is a built-in hutch with drawers on the side and an oven below the shelf. This is the before picture:

I added birds to the area with-- the three on the branch with tea lights which my daughter gave me for Valentines, the ceramic bird in the cloche and a ceramic bird by the simplify sign. I had a couple more birds that I tried to put with this arrangement but then I decided to heed my own sign and I "simplified" them off the area. Here it is after:

The second area is in my front entry hallway. Here it is before:I added a large ceramic bird and let him rest on some green moss. The white apple(?) blossoms are in an antique watering can.

There you have it--10 minutes to Spring! Check out other 10 minute makeovers by going to Nesting Place.
