Spring Home tour

Hello everyone!

I know you already saw the fabulous homes from Monday to just now,  Friday's equally fabulous group as well. If your hopping by from Anita's at "Far Above Rubies", thank you and I hope I don't disappoint after that eclectic and colorful home tour!

Let's get on shall we? But before I do, I need to thank our beloved host and ever-patient SPRING HOME TOUR coordinator-extraordinaire, Marty from "A Stroll thru Life" fame, THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for including me and my home among these other inspiring homes!

 Let's go first to our LIVING ROOM!

Blues and Purples are my Spring choice this year
I actually just did only a little update from my home's BLUE & WHITE WINTER HOME decor (you can check it out HERE) by adding a lot of flowers particularly in purple and of course adding the purple pillows & original art work too.

My Coffee table/ ottoman is filled with Easter display already and of course, our latest Photo book of our trip to Paris last winter!

My steadily growing blue and white collection!
I kept the Matisse Print on the console since I think it's perfect 

Scored my Faux orchids from ROSS at $12.99 each! Unbelievable steal right?!
I displayed the travel books we collected recently from our European vacation

Above the piano is a very special display...
... an original painting made by my 12 year old son! I absolutely love it!!!!
These four are my originals - had to make new art work to go with my color palette. This series is called - "CORNERS"
Here's another look - painting has become a favorite family past time recently
Ok, now let's head off to the DINING ROOM...

Still a lot of happy colors - this time in blues, greens and pinks!
My paper whites died are gone, but I kept the plant and added my moss bunny picks!

All set for Easter!

My DIY Cherry Blossoms I made years ago makes a comeback as well as my growing Chocolate
bunny collection!

And before we end this tour, let me show you my daughter's bedroom!

An explosion of pinks here for sure!

The other painting I need to brag about - my 2 1/2 year old did her own painting too!

Spring books abound!

In our Breakfast area, just some Easter Lily on our table
