Well I’m fresh off the plane from Waco, sitting in my cozy bed as I edit this post, and feeling so incredibly grateful that I got to visit Magnolia Market this weekend. What a crazy 48 hours it has been! If you were following along on Instagram or Facebook you saw a few snippets of my trip, but goodness gracious that place is was awesome. I can’t wait to chat all about it later this week, but today I have a vintage dresser and a pretty spring vignette to share with you. And I’m going to warn you all right now, I went a little crazy with flowers last week. You see, I was at the grocery store just minding my own business. Not looking to buy anything but the essentials, completely focused the task at hand. And then it happened. I stumbled on the most gorgeous display of spring flowers. They were so bright and happy, I couldn’t help but be mesmerized by their beauty. Then the really good part–I saw that infamous yellow sticker. You know the one I’m talking about. The CLEARANCE sticker. Yep, I hit the mother-load my friends. All these beautiful flowers were marked down to just a few bucks for each bundle. They weren’t even wilted or ugly yet. Apparently it was some kind of flower bonus day or something magical like that. I don’t know, I didn’t ask questions. But I had no choice other than to take several bundles home. And then style them in a very pretty spring vignette for your viewing pleasure!
I styled this with an old wooden fruit crate, two small shutters in the back, and tons of fresh flowers. I also added in a few old books, painted terra cotta pots, and faux greenery on the sides just to balance it out a bit. Then I pulled the top drawer of this vintage dresser out and used it to display even more faux greenery and this rustic simplify sign. I don’t know about you guys, but I feel like spring is all about simplifying. It’s a fresh start and the chance to begin anew, both in our homes and personally as well. This sign is just perfect for spring. I wish I had a source for you, but it’s an old sign that’s been around for a long time. It would definitely make an easy peasy DIY project!
Of course I had to add a little spring cheer to my vintage postbox.
I’m soooooo happy it’s March now and I can officially decorate for spring without feeling like a crazy person. Bring on all the flowers and happy things! I just love this time of year, it’s a season of new life and new beginnings. Flowers will soon be blooming, the grass will start to turn green, and it’s all a reminder of the hope we have in Him. I’m so thankful for all that spring represents and I hope you feel that too. And I have to say, I’m now committed to buying fresh flowers on a more regular basis after seeing how these beauties made this entire room come to life. I guess I never realized how much I love having loads of fresh flowers in the house. Hopefully I come across another one of those magical flower days at the grocery store real soon!
