Primitive Spring

The spruce up for Spring continues around here...I'm brightening up my family room.  If you've followed me for a while you know that this room is decorated in a slightly primitive style using the colours of the woodlands -- browns, blacks, and distressed patinas.  It's so easy to decorate this room in the Fall, not so much in springtime.  Never-the-less, I had to change things out so I began with my favorite area in the room, my old antique trunk.


I placed on top of it a few of my favorite things...Lace, old dried roses in a watering can, a little birdie, and my favorite prim clock.


I love embroidered linens and clothing, especially when the embroidery adorns a dress worn by my favorite prim doll.


She completes the look don't you think? This photo was taken in the evening, it looks a lot brighter when flooded with afternoon sunshine.  I'm really pleased with the way it turned out.  I have a few more things to change in this room and then it's on to the living room.

I'm glad you stopped by...Have a great week.
