A Touch of {Green}


Here we go again…I’ve changed up my little cabinet for the new season. ;) 

I’m bringing on the GREEN

One reason being that it is March/St.Patrick’s Day and another being that I am so wishing for green outside!!  I also wanted to keep it more simple and clean because I am feeling the need for a clean slate this time of year.

I brought out my garage sale shutters and stacked them up for some height and depth.  I left the little wood box because it give some height plus we hide keys & stuff in the cubby on the back.  Works nicely by the door.  {Genius, I know.}  

The only other things I added is my tin pitcher with some pussy willow branches and some Bells of Ireland (seemingly festive although they are not even native to Ireland), and a little ball of greens on a mossy birds nest.

I kept one of the little love birds from my Valentine Vignette nested on top of one of the thrift store candle sticks.  Sadly, the other little love bird had a tragic death.  Mr. Husband accidently knocked it off while putting on his coat one day.  I told him I hoped it wasn’t a sign that our love was dying….He said it was a sign. A sign that I shouldn’t place breakable items near the coat rack.  ba-dum ching ;)


What do ya think?  Spring-y, clean and GREEN? 

Oh good, because that’s what I was going for. :)

Getting all Linky…

  1. I love it! If you can't have green outside, at least you can bring it in. :)

  2. Spring-y shades of green are so fresh and welcoming. Love the Bells of Ireland and the shutters behind. Nice vignette.
