A few more touches of Spring

On previous posts I talked about getting some great vintage pieces and well i put them around the house starting with the beautiful painting...

I put the framed painting over my couch, 
it seemed a bit small on its own..

So I decided to put back some of my empty frames that i had up there before to add a lil more to the painting..

Now this is what it looks like... 
Not sure which way i like it more..

Your opinions would be greatly appreciated =) 

I also talked about my lovely Tea Tray.. 

I decided to use it as my living rooms center piece on my ottoman with a lil bouquet of spring roses.. 
It seemed to heavy for me to carry out as a Tea tray maybe eventually ill use it to hold my tea pot and some cute tea cups. 

I also got a cute clear soap dispenser in my master bathroom to give it a more spa, spring like feeling..

Put it next to my pretty bouquet of peonies..


Above my fridge I have my cooking and baking books with my favorite tea cup and a glass pitcher with a bouquet of  poppy flowers

& in the kitchen a bouquet of white roses next to my tea cups, a box of yummy teas and honey =) 

One of my favorite parts about spring....
Flowers.. Can you tell?
I intend to put them everywhere!


  1. I like the painting better with the Frames around it! its trendy and much nicer than one small painting above a big couch.

    Also LOVE you tea tray. I'll be keeping my eye out for something similiar on my next antiquing trip.

  2. Peonies are my favorite flowers.

  3. I love flowers, especially seasonal ones, I currently have a big vase of bluebells in my kitchen and they smell gorgeous!
    Your home looks lovely, I adore the tea tray :)

  4. I love the frame arrangement, much better with the additional four empty frame... I'd even go further and add a few more - maybe 2 more on each side?


  5. super sweet.

  21. I think putting all the empty frames around it def makes a much bigger statement. Plus, I'd rather have empty frames then frames filled wth pictures I didn't LOVE.

  22. when i get my own place i really want to have a wall full of mismatching frames with vintage prints in them. like a huge collage behind my sofa =)

  23. ANYA! Love, this looks amazing. great job. I couldn't have done it better myself. Swing by and check out what happened while I was shopping in Beverly Hills the other day and see Lauren Conrad's unaired promo to the show MTV decided not to pick up.

  25. Oh wow, how pretty! So springy and beautiful. It looks like something out of a magazine. Really!

    I can't decide which way I like the picture arrangement better. I think I like it with the empty frames around it, and like another commenter said, you could even add a few smaller ones around the side.

    P.S. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! <3
