Hi everyone! If you are joining me from 21 Rosemary Lane -Welcome! I have to give so much credit to the warm and talented Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for putting this tour together. She is just the sweetest.
If you a new here, I am Jennifer and I live in Northern California with my husband and high school sweetheart and our two girls! I am obsessed with design and decorating and am always trying to get the look for less. Much to my husbands dismay, I am always rearranging and changing our home (sometimes just to incorporate my latest Craigslist finds!) We purchased our dream “fixer-upper” home last fall and we are in the process of renovating it room by room. Our new home, now called the “Money Pit,” was built in the 1920’s, so it has that old home charm and many shall I say, “quirks.” We are in the process of paining, wallpapering and doing electrical work. So, let’s just say many of the photos will be close up of vignettes to avoid having to show you dust and drywall!
Let’s start with our entryway, shall we? I simply added some of my favorite blue and white jars and a plant to greet guests with a touch of Spring.
I have been in a mad rush to get our table ready to go for Easter this year. You are getting the first sneak peek. I went with a green and pink color scheme this year.
The moss chargers are from World Market and they are so beautiful, but I will warn you that they are soo messy. I guess that is what you get when you get the real deal and not faux.
I found the egg cups below at a thrift store for a few bucks and the butterfly accent plates are from Homegoods.
The ombre candles are also from World Market and they come in a bunch of fun Spring hues like green and yellow as well as pink
Instead of my standard round ball vase, I opted to place my flowers in a soup tureen I found at a thrift store The flowers lay beautifully inside of it. I highly urge you to search your home for unique vessels to use as vases. I used a combination of spray roses, tulips and freesia.
Other than adding florals and a few other accents, we don’t really bring in much Spring decor. One exception is our beloved bunny Floppy who makes an appearance each Easter.
You can see how much my little Audrey loves him.
My rain boots double as a make-shift vase. Just use a tall slender vase inside to ensure your boots stay dry! I opted for a mixture of tulips and calla lilies and I like the texture the combination adds.
Speaking of unique vessels, I was going through my cupboards and found this old copper colander and a light bulb went off. I could use it as a vase.
What tour would be complete without a glimpse of the bar cart? I added pops of green and pink to brighten it up.
I tried my hand at some outside the “carton” Easter egg ideas this year. For both of the eggs below, I used my favorite paper napkins and some Mod Podge to create totally unique eggs. You can find tons of other unique Easter egg decorating ideas here.
This next spot is near and dear to my heart. When we moved into the “Money Pit,” we had to sell our first home. It was a bitter-sweet moment as it was the place where we brought our girls home from the hospital and lived as newlyweds. We were however able to take one of our favorite statues/planters who we affectionately call Merle with us to our new home.
Finally, there is no way I could show you are outdoor space right now. It needs some “Spring cleaning” to say the least. Here it is last year after a Spring revival.
I hope you all enjoyed my tour! If you are new to Decorating Delirium, and you want to sign up for e-mails notifying you of new posts chalked full of decorating ideas, you can do that here. Or, you can follow me on Pinterest or Instagram too!
