Spring in the Foyer

Hi, all!!!  The laundry pile is getting smaller, the dust bunnies are gone, and the spring pillows are now brightening up the sofa.  One of the great things about traveling is that when the plane’s wheels touch down, I am always motivated to get into nesting mode and make our house feel like a home again.  If you read yesterday’s post, then you saw the tulips that were waiting for me when I walked into our mudroom.  I told you that I would show you how I am using them.



Forced tulip bulbs

Here’s a refresher on how they looked.

I like to keep a seasonal vignette on the dresser in our foyer.  So, I pulled out my reliable clear blue pitcher, one of our vintage Easter post cards, and a milk glass chicken candy dish, and called it a day.  The blue pitcher was one that my mother used when I was a little girl.  I like the way it plays with the blues in the post card.

If you have been reading The 2 Seasons for a while, then you know that I have a stash of old post cards that are around 100 years old.  I have a few for most major holidays, and they always make me smile.  I just put one in this cute frame from my friend Randy, and it becomes art.  If you don’t have vintage post cards, but like the idea of using them, then check this out.

Since the Netherlands is my favorite country with its windmills and all, I especially like the scene in the center of this card.  I don’t have a clue what that wind mill and charming house have to do with Easter, though.

The vignette is very simple, looks nice with the plates on the wall, blends well with the kilim rug (the foyer doesn’t look the same as in that post, but the rug is the same) and makes me happy.  I call that a success story.


I know most of you probably have your spring and Easter decorating finished by now because we have been admiring your talents.  Thanks for stopping in.




Take care.
