More Spring in the house

Well I got a little bit more decorating done last which was not easy as I had to clean the house, do laundry and babysit my puppy (who is very clingy).  I am still working on the dining room table.  I think that I will go the Pier 1 Imports today and see what I can find.

 I needed some candlesticks for the dining room buffet and just couldn't find what I wanted in the house so I bought these from Hobby Lobby.  I did not like the color but do like the shape.  So I painted them.

Now here they are on the dining room buffet.  I decided to do minimal decorating this year for the buffet.

The soup tureen I got at Goodwill of all places for $7.99.  I believe that it older ironstone.  I can't read the stamp on the bottom.  It is is pretty good condition, just has one little chip on it.

Now here is a close up of how I decorated it.
It is hard to find these at the thrift store with the ladle. I got lucky with this one.  Here is what I got done so far with the dining room table.
I still need a few more items to complete it.  Here is a close up of the plates so far.
I still need to get two more of these.  I only bought four thinking I would use them in the kitchen, but I decided to use them in the dining room instead.

In the kitchen I finished off the island area and added a few more birds to the kitchen table.  I just love these little birds and all the different colors they come in.  I have them in yellow, green, white and blue. Maybe next year I will get some in pink.

Here is a picture of the bunny on the island before I painted it.
And here he is after on the island and my newly updated kitchen table with the new birdies that I purchased.

I traded out my kitchen lamps by the sink for some topiaries.  I think they look great for springtime.  Maybe if I added some ribbon to them.  I think that I will keep them up all year long.  This is one of the lamps that I used to have by my sink.  Of course I took this picture before we completed the renovation.  After the renovation I just didn't like them anymore by the sink.
Here is the kitchen sink area now.
The last area I got done is my console table in the living room.  I just decided to one corner of the table.  I got this lamb and the egg  from Terry's Village.  I think he is adorable.  Can you see what is hidden in the container?

That's it for now.  I am hoping that today I can get my front porch started.  I have to clean it off, do some painting and decorating.  I probably won't get the decorating done as I need to revamp the bench and get new cushions.  Happy Sunday to everyone!
