Add a Little Character

Hey my friends!
Spring is definitely in the air around our "neck of the woods" ;)
I have had that spring fever lately,
you know, to create, fluff the nest, move things around a bit.
However, with homeschool and job deadlines,
it's hard to get projects done, so I did some simple fluffing.


I found this old door at a local shop of my friend Suzanne's.
She has some great old, chippy pieces with unique character.


I just couldn't pass up this door with such a vintage feel.
The patina is fabulous.
With wood and white peeking from under the glorious green.


I so wish I could grow my own hydrangeas.
I'm going to try again this spring.  Until then, I use the "pretend" kind :)










If you are new around here, you can check out how
we have used another old door as a headboard in
"Tour Our Farmhouse", on the sidebar.




Last weekend we had beautiful weather,
and I did get to plant a little herb garden.
Maybe I can share that with you soon.
What about you, any gardening going on around your place?

I'm joining  Good Life Wednesdays with Sarah
and
White Wednesday with Kathleen.
Thanks for hosting each week, ladies :)

And thanks to all of you for stopping in to visit.
I appreciate your sweet comments and enjoy being part of your day ;)
I hope you have a wonderful week.
Blessings
Becky C

Love your new door Becky, and the way you pulled it all together! I definitely have spring fever too and need to dump my dead plants (thanks to the freezing temps a few weeks back). I'll wait a few more weeks though just to be safe.

Okay, you know I am melting a little right now, don't you? I LOVE that door and that bit of green showing through is exactly what you said, "glorious". Girl, you do great with your photos. Maybe you can teach me a thing or two or three or ten...

This door is simply stunning, shape and color!!
It's time that I'm looking for some like this, but here it's impossible to find a siple wood door ...
Here is still too cold to start gardening, but I'm thinking to reproduce hortensias and roses :)
Have a nice day my darling!

Love your vintage door! I wish I had more room to display stuff like you!
My yard is coming to life….the daffodils are blooming and seeds are germinating in my greenhouse.

Anji Johnston said...

That door rocks! The patina is stunning, one of the best I have ever seen.
No planting for me unfortunately - the weather here in Virginia has been so up and down of late and still too much frost. Roll on Spring!

I LOVE that door, Becky! I looked for doors, windows, and shutters on my treasure hunt last weekend and found none... NONE. I was so bummed. The patina on your door is fabulous... beautiful... lucky! ;-)
I hope you have a wonderful weekend, my friend!

p.s. Thank you so much for your sweet words of encouragement on my mention in FMS, Becky. I appreciated it so much. :)

Alice said...

Your photos are just gorgeous!!!! I love the old door--it has so much character.

I would love to grow hydrangeas but I fear our weather out here at the edge of town would be too harsh for them. No gardening here for me as we still have snow on the ground and below freezing temps.

Lissa said...

that door is fabulous! We have an old door on our playhouse and I just love it so much.

Rebecca said...

Spring has not sprung around here yet... I am so ready for it

Becca said...

Hi Becky, I'm Becky too! Or, you can call me Becca.:-) I found your blog and really love your style. Funny, I just did a post on some of my burlap pieces, and I think that's why your blog name stood out. Also, my post before that was about hydrangeas too, and how I can't grow them in my garden where I live either, so I enjoy the fake ones or the occasional one from the grocery store that my hubby brings home.
I love your blog, and I'm also going to put you on my side bar.
Enjoy your day :-)

FRENCH LAUNDRY said...

I wouldn't have been able to pass up that door either!

Looks great,
Judy

Cheryl said...

Hi Becky!
Love your decorating style. I too love hydrangeas and just moved to Louisiana about eight months ago. I am hoping to be able to grow some. I will neeed to check the PH of the soil as well as find some good shady ground. While they do love sun, they don't like a lot of it.

I plan on growing an herb garden as well as a veggie garden. Would love to see what you have decided to plant.

missshawna said...

I love that door too! Great patina. I wish Spring was here in Colorado but I think we are getting snow again tomorrow.Your photos are beautiful.
