Spring Vignette

Years ago I decorated for a holiday almost every month but as my children have gotten older I now do well to change a few things around each season.  If I get it done it’s good and if I don’t get to it, that’s OK too. This year I was able to get something together for spring.

We have a large coffee table in our den so that we can prop our feet up! My family doesn’t cooperate with unrealistic styling so the “lived in” look is for real. The wooden box and the urn are almost always on the table. The topiary rabbit and small basket have been added for spring.

The remote should be in the wooden box but rarely finds its way there and the photographer failed to put it there before the photo shoot. The box also holds pens and notepads and other coffee table clutter.

I debated between this faux moss covered rabbit and a topiary rabbit but decided on this one thinking that it would last longer. I purchased it at Scott’s Antiques earlier this month.

The basket is holding vintage chocolate molds for Easter eggs. If you look closely, you can see the Man in the Moon on one on the left side.  I also purchased these at Scott’s and the dealer told me that she purchased these at an outdoor market in Belgium. Lucky her! Sounds like my kind of place!

The pansies are awfully droopy but hopefully will perk up again and last a few more weeks!

Now if we can just have some WARM spring weather!

I’ll be linking to Table Top Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life. Click the link to see lots of inspiration.
