Springtime in My Front Hallway

Dear friends,

It's springtime!

Many years ago, my Aunt Nancy kindly gave our family a porcelain bunny village which we set out nearly every year.  My favorite piece is the church, of course!

This year, the bunny village has a place of honor on the tall cabinet in our front hallway.

We often receive hand-me-down clothes from friends and neighbors, and we always try to pass along what we can't use.  But I got tired of seeing plastic bags of clothes to be given away just plopped down in the hallway.  I bought a brown fabric hamper (with a sturdy wire frame) at Walmart, covered it with a right-sized board, added a vintage lace cloth, and topped it with a silk rose bouquet.  Decorative and useful at the same time!  

On the low table in the hallway, I put a bowl of lemons on a vintage lace doily.  They're actually plastic, but you can't tell that by looking at them.  I bought the whole bag of them for $1.49 at Salvation Army.  I'm still missing a few of them since my grandsons got a hold of them!

I just moved this plaque from the bathroom today.  I have been tweaking our bathrooms lately, as you can see here:

This framed print is next to our door, an appropriate place since it reads: "Lord, rest your hand upon this door and bless this house forevermore."

That's all for my front hallway today, but you can see previous posts featuring it here: 

Grace and peace,

  1. Yes, Virginia, I posted a comment at a day or so ago and have gotten a ton of traffic to that post, most of them very mean. I'm not publishing them. I tire of mean, unfounded comments! Thank you for your links. They are very good.
