Truth be told, it snowed today. No kidding. Here we are at the end of March and we got about 4 inches of snow. Needless to say, SPRING is on my mind. Spring – with color and flowers and warmer temperatures. Since, it clearly isn’t spring outside, we have decided to create spring on the inside of our home.
It started off with this wooden green bucket that used to be an ice cream maker. Remember those? They had the cranks on the side, and you turned them for what seemed like eternity until cold cream turned into ice cream. I thought: “Green bucket – perfect for spring!” What do you think? I might be a little obsessed with the green bucket, and it might show up in a number of future photos . . .
It’s a little bit like the “Where’s Waldo?” of my blog.
With the snow here in late March, there is still a need for warm bedding. However, if you are like me, you are yearning for something with a little color and cheer. Perhaps something akin to these quilts?
I believe these quilts are all from the depression era. They were made using pieces of flour sacks and feed sacks from the 1930s and 1940s. You can read about my blog post on feed sacks here. These quilts are from my personal collection.
We also decided to freshen up the interior of the house by giving the walls a fresh coat of paint. It definitely helped with the spring cleaning and with brightening the feel of the room.
Having a newly painted white shiplap wall also helps with photography. A clean slate.
Anyway, that sums up our efforts to bring spring into our home. One green wooden ice cream bucket, a pile of quilts from the 1930s -1940s, and painting our walls a fresh coat of white paint. It’s amazing how the tiniest hint of color can lift our spirits.
Wishing you all good health and happiness. Thank you for stopping by the blog this week. I always love sharing all of our endeavors with you. Happy Spring!
