Welcome Spring

Hey my friends!
Spring has shown up here in Louisiana.
Although it's cooler now than last week, blooms are sprouting everywhere.
I brought some flowering branches in from our Bradford Pear trees.



I know you've seen this little corner of my kitchen many times,
but I like to change it out often with the seasons.


Adding a little pop of crystal blue in the windowsill.


I found the little bird garden apron at Hobby Lobby.


This little vase came from Laurie Anna's in Canton.
Her shoppe was unbelievable this month, pretty much breathtaking!


Fresh cut baby's breath for the vase and galvanized water boxes.



Bringing some spring time inside makes a room feel happy :)


Check out all the beautifully refreshed rooms over there :)



I'm still planning to show you my herb garden and 
a little update to our master bathroom- coming soon :)
Have a marvelous Monday!
Blessings
Becky C

Your photos are beautiful Becky. I know what you mean about changing out certain spaces frequently - it makes everything seem new and fresh again. Spring hasn't quite arrived here in Ohio yet although the sun did pop out a little today. Your blog always inspires me to get busy around my house!

Your photos are stunning Becky, great job! Love those flowering branches and they are blooming everywhere in Houston too, just not in my yard.;(
Happy new week to you.

You make me want to go out on this cool cloudy day in Ga and cut some of my blooms to brighten up the house. Yours looks so pretty and spring like. Looking forward to more pictures. Have a good day,

Susan said...

SO springy and enticing! I love all your spring touches, and especially wish I could have some flowered branches, too. We still have snow on the ground, but it's finally melting.
Happy spring!

Your kitchen is soooo gorgeous! And the little touches of Spring just add to it's charm. I wish it were Spring here in Va - no such luck! Rain and rain and more rain! One day, one day...

Laura at Ms. Smartie Pants said...

Our Bradford Pears are blooming all over the place too. I have never cut branches and brought them inside, do they last? I also love the apron, I bought the bag. I wanted to make it to Laurie Anns in Canton for the sale but just couldn't get away. Maybe next time!

LLH Designs said...

You just reminded me how much I love Bradford Pears!

Happy Spring!

Karen said...

Becky, always enjoy dropping by. But, the Bradford Pear Tree Blossoms are beautiful. I talked to my mother in LA (south of S'port) this morning and she said her's were really in full bloom. Hoping they will still be by Friday. I'm going home to visit. :)) Laurie Anns must be a really neat place.

Michelle @ Sweet Something Design said...

So, so pretty....nothing blooming in my part of the country yet! Very soon though!

So very pretty! I love all your updates to the kitchen. Such a happy, fresh look you have given it. I have to say, I'm a green with envy since your spring has arrived. I still have to wait at lease a month before I'll be sure all the snow is gone! So sad!

Love it and Love the Brandford Pear branches. But I must confess - I do NOT love the way they smell - hehe. I know you know what I mean. Anyway they are gorgeous to look at and your house is like a breath of fresh air! I can't wait to get my new digs so I can start doing "house" stuff again.

Jennifer Rizzo said...

That blue and the branches is just gorgeous! Everything makes it seem so springy! Thank you for sharing your gorgeous home with us! I love the old coal bucket too!

I love your photos and the Spring look. I found you over at Kristin's "My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia" blog and have become your new follower. I like your "About Me" info, Ms. Becky! It's always enjoyable to meet wonderful blogging southerners like you.

April said...

Wow, great style you have. And I am going to have to finally check out a 'Hobby Lobby'. I keep reading how fabulous they are!

Amy Kinser said...

Girl, how did I miss this post? Maybe it's because what I told you the other day...

Okay, those blue jars in your window sill are gorgeous. You know I love that color!!!!

Everything looks beautiful and springy, my friend.
