Spring In My Kitchen

I don't do much decorating for spring, but I do decorate my kitchen because that is where we spend most of our time. That is where we welcome our guests and we usually park near the coffee pot...So I thought I would show you what I do...Before I had the shop, I just put a little birdhouse and a bunny in the center of the dining room table, some of my kid's artwork (and my own) around and on the windows. You know what I am talking about, construction paper eggs, bunnies, etc.

We have always focused on the Cross for our spring celebration rather than the bunnies and eggs, but incorporate them into our decor because they represent to us what the Cross of Christ represents...
It has been really exciting to have a week of 40 degree weather here, we have been watching the snow melt, and tip toeing through the mud!                                          
I found this hooked egg basket in Pennsylvania a couple of years ago and kept it for myself. It is probably a favorite spring item. Below is the "original bunny" I have had for many years...

The wool bunny in the tin container below is one done by a local woman that I found at a shop that is no longer open. So many shops have closed up here, it is sad. I am glad that there are still four that are within an hour of mine, so I can still go find unique things in other places! I love to visit other shop owners too!
This is my plate/bowl rack in the kitchen, I love to change the garland across the nails, and add an ornament on the one in front of the plate. In this case a felt star~shaped bunny.
This dish tray is on the hutch with a couple of old wood bowls, a wool chick and a couple of wood eggs in a nest of angel hair vine. I leave the nest, and just change the contents all year...
What do you do for Spring?
