Springtime Blues and Greens

Welcome to Brookhollow Lane and my spring decor. I'm joining the Bluebonnet Blog Hop. Hop on over to the other blogs to see what spring things other Texas bloggers are up to.  
If you haven't been here before my style is vintage, flea market, and thrift store with a little farmhouse and cottage thrown in.

 In the kitchen, here's the hutch decorated in spring colors. Hanging on the pull is my vintage Vera tea towel from my mom.
Here's a reminder of my inspiration for the kitchen and family room.

 I used my jadite and added a few splashes of aqua.
 The turquoise salt and pepper shakers were made in Japan and were also my Mom's.
 You can see the vintage table cloth folded in the Pyrex bowl. Many items in the hutch (including the hutch) were found at garage sales or thrift stores.
 I made new seat covers from the polka dot fabric from Hobby Lobby. Here you can see from the breakfast nook right into the family room. That is why I have to tie the colors in.
 A few throw pillows on the window seat.
 I also made simple window toppers out of the same fabric.
 Throw in some blue and green straws in the kitchen.
 Here's my little entryway table. I tried to keep it super simple.
 I'll probably bring out some Easter decorations next week.
      What says spring more then birds and nests?


I added some very pale pillows to the living room, just to bring in a little color of spring.
Here's a view to the dining hutch. These were my Mom's dining table and chairs. I painted and antiqued them to fit my look.

  6. Good Morning,
    What a fabulous color combination for spring, I just love your Jadite and Aqua. I have a yellow mixing bowl just like yours, some of those pieces look so familiar to me. Your home is so warm and inviting, you inspire me to organize some of my vintage pieces. It is so much fun sharing the Bluebonnet Hop with you!
    Happy Spring!

  7. HI Leslie! The Jadite mixed with the aqua looks so perfect together. I also noticed a darling mug mixed in there....so cute! Your seat covers, pillows and valances tie all the colors together. It was fun looking around your home and also seeing how you transformed your mom's dining set to fit your style.

  14. Leslie,
    Your collection of green and aqua is perfect for Spring. How very special that you have pieces from your mom. She must have loved green and aqua also.

    Have a wonderful weekend,

  17. I so envy your jadeite collection, Leslie. You never find them at garage sales or thrift stores here. Anything I have, I've had to buy on eBay for a mint lol

    Perfect colors for Spring, my friend :)

  18. Hi Leslie! Oh, I'm loving your bright and spring decor. Your hutch looks so lovely - I'm all over your Jadeite. You have some really pretty pieces too! You know what? I've redone my little kitchen hutch and put my Jadeite in it and I'll show it in a few days. Love all of your pretty fabrics you're using too! Hope you have a beautiful week.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  22. It's probably a good thing I don't live close to you. I'd have to 'borrow' some of your Jadeite! ;)
    Continue being a sweetie,

  23. So much to see in your charming home, Leslie! I love your hutch filled with your wonderful collection of Jadiete and turquoise accent pieces! The towel and s & p shakers are lovely hand-me-downs from your mother. And your chair seat covers and valances are perfect spring accents with their fresh polka dot design. Love the vintage table in your entryway, too!! I've got to get some spring in our house, even though we just got hit with 6 more inches of snow!!
