Good morning, my dear friends! Spring is upon us, and I hope that you are well and taking care. My family is doing good, and we are keeping busy around the house. The kids are in great spirits and have been very understanding regarding the extra precautions we are taking. We have to use caution, because two of my children have problems with their immune systems. Making the best of our time, we are catching up on some spring cleaning, taking walks, watching movies, and eating lots of good food. My poor dishwasher is getting a workout! Saturday, we were so thankful for sunshine and the opportunity to spend some time outdoors.
This morning, I want to invite you into the living room for a spring tour. So grab a cup of coffee or tea, and come on in for a look around.
For the coffee table vignette, I assembled some blue and white pieces, my favorite rabbit, and an arrangement of realistic faux hydrangeas. For now, faux flowers are all that you will find around my home.
On the mantel, I placed my Staffordshire rabbits among my Flow Blue pieces.
I took these pictures on Saturday, and it was so glorious to see the rays of sunshine gleaming through the room.
You may have noticed this new table in the room. Back in January, I was visiting a local consignment shop, and spotted this beauty across the room. It just had to come home with me. I love tables with inlay and pretty details.
Valentine weekend, Mr. Bleu surprised me with a trip to Dallas. We had such a wonderful time! One of the places I visited while I was there was Inessa Stewart’s beautiful store. This antique French copper jardiniere came home with me.
I found this sweet oiled bronze rabbit at an antique shop last summer. Doing a little research, I think it is German. From what I have read, rabbits like this one were placed out for the Easter Bunny, and he would leave candy in the baskets. I was told that it is difficult to find these rabbits with the baskets still intact.
My sweet friends, I pray that you stay safe and healthy. Thank you so much for your visits and kind comments. I will be back later this week to share my spring front porch with you. Take care, and may your day be filled with blessings.

Your living room looks beautiful all deck out for spring. I love the rabbit with the baskets!
Your home is just so beautiful and a pleasure to view! Thank you so much for sharing it with us here. May God bless you and your family, also, and keep all of you safe and healthy during these troubled times. He is surely our only hope!
Shannon, thank you for inviting me into you beautiful spring living room. It is a breath of fresh air to see all your pretties. The table is stunning and what a find for you. I am smitten with the German rabbit and baskets, how unusual and perfect for this season or anytime. Your home is lovely and welcoming. Stay safe sweet friend!
So many pretty pieces and it was fun reading about the bunny you found. It’s fun finding pieces and being able to find the history.
Absolutely love the table you found when away too, sure is a beauty.
I’ll be thinking of your kids during this time. These are the things people don’t realize can be a problem and why it’s necessary to stay home and wash your hands. I would never want to make someone I’ll.
I love your decor and your staying true to traditional decorating. Your blogs are always a ray of sunshine. Keep up the awesomeness.
Your house always looks so beautiful and perfect Shannon, I can’t believe you have a house full of children at home! Your faux blue hydrangeas look real and beautiful, plus no care required! It’s so nice that we can play with our Spring bunnies and things to keep us cheery during this time of isolation…Love your German bunny and his history!
Love looking at your Spring Living Room Tour….Beautiful! Your table is a nice find with that ormolu. I love this type furniture. Don’t you just love finding things and learn the history like that cute bunny with baskets?! Praying ya’ll stay healthy.
Beautiful room! And the bunny is adorable. Would you know where you purchased your rug or a name. I’m moving in a new house with all hardwood and I’ve always loved your rug. Take care and stay healthy
Your home is so welcoming and beautifully decorated. I love your coffee table vignette with the bunny and its blue and white stripe ribbon. Add the transferware and blue hydrangeas and it really pops.
The german bunny with its baskets are lovely and the history is very interesting. You are fortunate to find such a treasure.
I am glad you are happy at home and your family is heeding precautions. We are also.
I just have to say this, I am so happy that my name and address stay on your blog and I don’t have to type in everything each time I comment. That is wonderful! Wish all blogs were that way.
Have a wonderful day.
Shannon, I love your gorgeous table find and all your pretty spring decor pieces! One thing I noticed awhile back is how the central portion of your home is laid out–I love that it’s different from the typical parlor/office to one side and dining room to the other. I would love to see a floor plan of your home as I am looking for a more unique lay-out for our retirement home. Glad the kids are having fun with no school days. We, too, are keeping safe as my husband and I have compromised immune systems. Luckily, Michael is able to work from home at the moment. Hugs!
These photos with a bigger perspective are so nice..I enjoy seeing how the spaces all flow together.You have done an excellent job of creating your french ambiance. I love when someone follows their design heart. My favorite is the bunny tray, and also the german bunny. I also collect rabbits. Glad to hear your family is healthy, and in spite of everything, it is nice for family time to go on.
Oh what a lovely home you have. And to be invited in to see all your spring pretties is such a delight! That German Rabbit is gorgeous! A beautiful fine to have out through all the seasons.
And your new table is such a lovely addition.
Thank you for the tour and stay safe!
Shannon this tour is just lovely! I forgot to tell you that I featured you at last week’s All About Home Party. I hope you will join us again this week: https://followtheyellowbrickhome.com/all-about-home-link-party-33/
