White Wednesday " rustic spring "



Rustic elements help create the look

and feel in our home to

welcome the spring season...





Using reclaimed wood that I have white washed

in some areas, old window frames & shutters...



Beautiful twigs and coral

are always used throughout my home

giving that use of nature and sea...



Every pillow in our home

is made by the beautiful and talented




I found a piece of an old wood scaffold

at a yard sale and it creates another

beautiful backdrop in a corner of the room...



I mix grays and whites to give that

soft neutral look that I love...



{I love age worn wood}



Spanish moss in the natural color

is the perfect filler for my urns.




I will be linking this post to




May your spring season be filled with blessings...

Love to each of you
XOXO

Hi Kate ~ Happy Spring to you Too~ I can't believe the wonderful weather we have been having.... I bet you are EnJoying the weather too... Love all these fabulous Whites, the tones are perfect~ Did you see the photo in the newest Country Living Magazine, they had a wall filled with all different size Shutters, they had them all painted in soft Blue & Green, but all shades of Old White & Gray would be Outstanding! Have a wonderful week, I am off to do some more Spring Clear Out!

Love the "feel." I have an old distressed door that stands in my corner. I'm looking for a burlap wreath to go on it.

You've got to treasure those things that are pure. Something about this setting makes me think of a nice dinner with a cool glass of lemonade...crying. That's just where my mind goes...I'm always finding a story within some picture :)
