Early Spring in the Entry Hall

Happy Thursday, sweet friends! I hope that you are having a wonderful week and enjoying beautiful weather. As promised earlier this week, I am sharing more of my spring decor. Please step inside and join me as we take a look around at the seasonal changes in decor.

The decor displayed on the antique French country buffet and shelf changes each season. For spring, I decided that my grandmother’s wedding china would be the perfect adornment. The pattern is Rosebud Chintz by Spode, and the sweet floral pattern is perfect for welcoming spring.

A Rose Medallion bowl is filled with pink and white blooms and flanked with Staffordshire bunnies.

“The first blooms of spring always make my heart sing.”-S. Brown

“Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own.”-Charles Dickens

I love spring anywhere, but if I could choose I would always greet it in a garden.”-Ruth Stout

“The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size.”-Gertrude Wister

The framed rabbit prints flanking the buffet belonged to my grandmother. She adored rabbits as much as I do. She had quite a collection of rabbit decor.

The decor at the foot of the stairway has been altered creating a blue and white story for the season.

Long time readers know of my love for anything blue and white. It is timeless and looks really impressive when grouped together in a collection.

Thanks so much for your visits and gracious comments, dear friends. Next Tuesday, I will be joining my tablescaping friends to bring you our spring tables. Enjoy your day and have a wonderful weekend!

  6. Good afternoon, Shannon. I always adore your French style and how you mix a little English country style! Your blue and white is stunning! I love your grandmother’s Spode Rosebud Chintz
    lovingly displayed along with her rabbit prints. Your collections and those beautiful pieces that have been passed down to you are what make your home beautiful! Looking forward to the hop, sweet friend!

    Love all your decor. Beautiful! I have a collection of Rose Medallion.

  9. So pretty Shannon! I love the bowl of blooms and the blooms tucked in the shelf with the lovely Rosebud Chintz plates. The tulip door hanger is so pretty, I love to hang something pretty on the inside of my front door. The blue and white sitting area is so fresh and bright, everything looks magazine perfect as always!

    Shannon I love your entry and I noticed how your lamps are a close match of your grandmother's Rosebud Chintz dinnerware. I know it is stunning along with the flowers, rabbits and hanging photos. The blue and white is also very pretty. What a nice variety of Spring colors to greet one when entering your lovely home. I adore anything passed down from generation to generation…so many young ones these days do not seem to appreciate the sentiment. Their loss. Have a great day and we will see you next week at the hop. BTW…I posted 4 "OLD" tablescapes of St. Patrick's Day…perhaps you visited them. When you see my blog hop post on Tuesday…you will understand why. Blessings always
