Friday Favs....a little touch of spring

As you enter my front door,
to your left are the stairs leading to our second story.
On the stair landing sits my antique trunk with my Mama's old suitcase perched on top of it.
Next to the trunk sits an antique five gallon crock
and above the truck hangs this old rack I found at the Goodwill for five dollars.
I've been told it's a french bread cooling rack,
and since that's the guess of what it really is that I most prefer,
that's what I call it.

With the Hubs and my daughter and son-in-law in Ghana on a missions trip,
I've been caring for my two oldest grandkids.
That means I haven't done a lot of thrifting or crafting or changing things up around the house.
Instead I've done important things like carpooling, homework supervising, cooking and cleaning and laundry and tucking in to bed at night and saying prayers.

But yesterday, the grandkids and I stopped at the Dollar Tree on our way home from school,
and there I bought a small  grapevine wreath and a stem of faux cherry blossoms.
A little hot glue and a few minutes later, for only two dollars I had a little touch of spring on my stair landing.

Some vintage table runners, one with my Mama's beautiful embroidery work, hang from the old rack, and look pretty spring-like themselves.

I'm lovin' this little touch of spring.

It's almost Friday, friends!
and have a BLESSED weekend!

  3. Very pretty, Elizabeth - though with the forecast for the winter storm to move into our part of the world overnight, spring sounds a l-o-n-g way off!
