Spring Decorating on the Window Sill

Good morning ladies. Wow two posts in two days, I haven´t been able to manage that in a long time….

Must be the weather that is moving in the right direction at last, it has given me a Spring in my step. Speaking about Spring, I finally started my Spring decorating. And now that the first light and airy colors have moved back into my  home I am itching to continue the trend. Took me long enough…..

Everyone in my online life seemed to be well into Spring decorations. There were Easter bunnies, crafty eggs and light sun-filled colors everywhere. And yet in my ‘real’ life I was still cuddling under my winter plaid, surrounded by moody, wintery colors and comforting myself with hot chocolate while I turned the thermostat up another notch.

I just couldn’t make myself take that first step, I kept dragging my feet. And I don’t know why. It isn’t as if I don’t love to do this, this fluffing, nesting thing. But I just wasn’t feeling it.

And then I FINALLY finished my curtain project. The one that I started in my head, after the first winter in this house (hmm about nine years ago….). I’ll go into details about the what, how and why about my curtain dilemma in another post, but for now just know that this one felt like a mountain (but turned out to be a (rather big) molehill).

And with the curtain situation solved, the window sill finally could get a little extra oomph too. And that’s what I did, add some extra oomph to our front window.

I just used what I had on hand, no buying new stuff yet. It isn’t as if we didn’t go looking for some, but we haven’t decided yet what we really want to do with this new blank canvas.

The man of course, is already contemplating more modern art, designer lamps and/or a sculpture  or two. While I am thinking about whether I’d want some softening up of the edges, find some new indoor plants or find the perfect set of  tchotchkes (a word The Nester taught me) to decorate it. 

We will get there. This project is just like any other. The moment you finish it, you realize you have to do a whole slew of other projects now (more on that later too).

For now I just want to bask in the glow of my first Spring decoration. It just lights up the room and has already inspired me to put away some of the winter pillows, and that plaid is going to be out of here next!

Spring is slowly gaining ground outside, and it definitely is working its way inside as well. The kick-off is here, now let the decorating continue.

  1. So pretty Marianne! Is that an old stained glass window resting on your bay window? I love that!

      Hi Siggie. Thanks, yes those are some old stained glass windows that I think used to be set in a door. They are just leaning against the window.

    Isn’t Spring wonderful? Just a hint of color and promises of warm weather and abundance. Thanks for sharing your lovely window sills. Mary Anne

    • Marianne Songbird says:

      Yes I love Spring, and by the looks of it, we are finally going to have some of it. Can’t wait to go outside and play in the sun. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Simple and beautiful, just the way I like it.

  4. Morning Marianne, beautiful settings. Thanks for sharing, but ack! going to put your plaids away! Oh well, spring really is here. Blessings and smiles, Emilou :-)

    • Marianne Songbird says:

      Hihi, don’t worry I am going to put the ‘winter’ plaid away. I’ll probably bring in a lighter one that is just as warm but doesn’t feel so heavy.
      Thanks for stopping by! I love your visits.
      ♥ Marianne

  5. Wonderful, welcome spring! How I love her. Your window coverings look so light and pretty – and the windowsills are charming.

    • Marianne Songbird says:

      Thanks Lorrie!
      I love Spring too, and I am so glad she finally arrived in these parts. I am going to soak up a lot of sun this weekend!
      Thanks for your kind words, they always bring a smile to my face.

  6. Hi Marianne, thank you for your beautiful Spring post :) Spring is slow to arrive in my little corner of Canada as well. We have just had two days of freezing rain advisory and schools were cancelled yesterday :( I am looking at your photos rather than out the window. Your pansy is adorable – there are none to be found here yet!

  7. Jaaa, de lente is er (bijna). De vensterbank en rolgordijnen zien er mooi uit. Het glas in lood is ook erg mooi. Het lijkt net alsof je glas in lood ramen hebt.
    Groetjes, Marianne.

  8. Love the spring decorations. Fortunately, the decorations can also be used in different seasons and I want to know where the tray is from, since I’m totally obsessed with it. *hearteyes*
    Thank you in advance!

    • Hi Demi,

      Thank you for your lovely comment. Yep this certainly is a versatile window decor, I have changed it up many times in different seasons. The tray is an old brick makers tray. I found it in my in-laws attic, so I am afraid it is a one of a kind.

  9. So lovely! Thanks for the spring inspiration Marianne.
