Last week I shared a few changes I made to our front room for Spring. Nothing big, just taking away heavy blankets and pillows and adding some flowering plants. Today I wanted to share our kitchen and the little things I changed. Really, when do we stop changing things? For me it is part of tidying up! After dinner dishes are cleaned up, the rearranging starts. It could be putting some fresh clippings in a vase or changing pillows around. It makes the chores and everyday living fun! The other night I had a somewhat tidy house so I took a video of our entire 1100 square foot house showing the Spring changes and flow in our tiny cape in Connecticut.
This week I am joining Marty, A Stroll Thru Life for her amazing line-up for a Spring Home Tour, make sure to check out the other bloggers at the end of this post. If you came from 11 Magnolia Lane welcome! Christy added great Spring and Easter touches. I am very excited to have you here checking out our Spring Home.
Quickest way to change your home with the seasons? Real flowers, plants and branches. Whole Foods has a great variety right now and so does Trader Joe’s. I picked up a bundle of Cherry Blossoms and love them split up into my collection of white pitchers. Better yet if you can clip some Magnolia branches or greens from outside. Unfortunately in Connecticut around our home nothing is really ready to be clipped right now.
I am enjoying bringing in some more green accents into our home this Spring. I always love the pops of pink, but shades of green really coordinate well with most any style and colors.
I have had my eye on THIS Fresh Bay Leaf Wreath.Finally ordered it and got it- love it having on our chalkboard. It is just the right size to not compete with our round chandelier.
Yes- I was thinking of painting our back door, again! We painted it in Cushing Green from Benjamin Moore in the Fall. I really still love it since it has the fresh Spring feel. Maybe in the Summer or Fall I will think of a fun new color. I moved the black and white pillows from upstairs to our kitchen and like them back here!
THIS Chives Dishtowel is another easy way to make your home feel Springy and remind you have summer coming.
Not too many changes, besides bringing out my mini pink bowls again for Spring and Summer to the kitchen shelves. I am drawn to the colors of Spring more than other other season of colors. Always have been!
We are ready to have the back door open enjoying the breeze and the sounds of kids playing happily outside!! And cannot wait for our daily bike rides. And secretly excited to get the outside windows clean- one of my favorite ways to Spring clean. Spring really is the greatest.

Take a Video Tour of our 1100 Square Foot Cape
I hope you enjoyed the video tour of our home! I actually have been wanting to do a video tour because I get asked often what the layout of our house is or for a floor plan. And that is not available for home built in 1950. I was hesitant to share the video because I am very much an amateur at video. But I realized that my readers don’t care about that- done is better than perfect!
