Spring in the Foyer

Happy Wednesday
 Sweet Friends,

So how are ya? 

 Bet you are getting things ready 
for Easter just like me..........
Am I right??

I don't typically post on Weds.,
cause I have my lil grandaughter
here all day for a play date, but
 got busy doing other things yester-
day and just never got around to
 editing pics and stuff till evening
So figured maybe I could do the
post today at some point.  So did
 get the pics posted while lil darling
 was will finish it 
up now.

Thought I would start with my
Spring foyer, mainly cause I am
so happy with it....we have lived
in our home for over 36 years 
and this is the first time I have
been really happy with this wall
that has been such an enigma for
me all these years.
My go to Spring accent color has 
been pink for a number of years
 now, but this year I decided just
to use it in the foyer and living 
room for the most part, since we
were really enjoying the soothing
look we had for the Winter, which
was whites, creams, greens and
brass/ gold in the family/dining
room, and have added a lil bit
of pink here and there, not 
much tho.............. is a look at
the foyer.  The enigma wall
is on the left. 

Now tell me,  does anyone 
else have a wall like that???

This is a look from the living room

Here it is as you come in the
front door.

See how we have this narrow wall,
and then it has steps down into the 
living room, and one side is a hall-
way going back to the family room, 
and the other side is the living room.  
I have always had it decorated but
can't say I have ever been like
 thrilled with it.....

you know what I mean???

There are so many things I have thought
of to put under a picture or wreath there
but because the stairs go down it is very
hard to find something to go there,
cause it can't be too wide or too long.
 Anyway I finally saw this plant stand
online, which my sweet daughter got
me for Christmas and that definitely
made it much better.....

So when I started my Spirng decorating 
 I decided to put picket fence floral
creation back up  as it used to be there
 some years back.

Then decorated the plant stand with
 a urn with greenery, which helps to
 hide another problem with this wall,
 a 4 switch light plate. I have tried
many times to find a pretty light
switch plate, but being so large,
they are rare and I have never seen
one that I thought would do any
good, so nice to be able to put
something in front of it to camo-
aflauge it a bit, so it isn't the first
thing you see when you come in

Then I decided to use these 2 watercolor 
prints in this room, this year.  I bought
 them as a birthday gift to myself last
year, and used them in the family room.
I used the first one on the etagere but 
wasn't sure what to do with the other 
one, so just on a whim I decided to try
 it in this spot, not really thinking it
would turn out necessarily.  So asked
hubby to hold it there for me, and I
really liked it,  and so did he.

Even tho I liked it .....seemed like there
was still something missing and decided
it needed something with height under-
neath it.  So decided on this topiary,
it was not quite tall enought so added
some books which did the trick.

Then added these cute lil birdies
 I bought some years back while
 on vacation in Asheville.

Wasn't quite sure what to put on 
the bottom but this bunny seemed 
like a good idea, and knew lil
 darling would like

So after all these years.....
 I have to say I am totally tickled
 with this wall for the first time~!!


Well, thanks for your visit, I so
 appreciate that you came by, and 
hope you will let me know you 
were here.

Love Hugs, and
Easter Preparation Blessings,

WOW! It turned out beautiful, Nellie! I love your big picture on the wall in the hallway rather than over your fireplace! I can hardly wait to see it in person! I love you all, Susan

Thanks Susan, for coming by......

I thought it was a nice change as well, seems to make the foyer ceiling seem higher!

See ya on Sunday,
Love, Nellie

Hi Nellie, Well, Girl! I think it looks simply beautiful, so fresh, clean and just right for spring! I enjoyed watching everything come together, don't you just love it when that happens! Sometimes it takes me awhile to tweak things before I get what I want! ~smile~
Wishing you and your family a most blessed and Happy Easter!

This is a very pretty entry way. Its so fresh and pretty. Love the way your did it all on one wall, really well done. The long legged white table is really beautiful and your arranged everything exactly right (not sure the right words, but its balanced and pleasing to the eye)
