Cottage Magpie is a delightful blog that chronicles Angela’s quest to add charm to her 1950’s ranch style home. Stop by for a look at how she has created a charming home with thrift store finds and cottage style.
I dropped in on Angela today to check out her round up of reader’s blog post inspired by her call for ‘Spring Green’.
The entries were so creative that I decided to go back and visited each blog again and chose a favorite item to share with you. It wasn’t easy but here are my picks.
- At Mrs. B’s the two green vases are just fabulous together. I love the way the cool and warm greens play off each other.
- No contest at Annalunda. That adorable little girl in green won my heart and…
- …at MB and Baby Makes 3 the baby in the bumbo seat is just too precious.
- Green and blue together is always a good combination and Courtney at Nesting Instincts likes it too but the pic of the bright green method cucumber soaps on the window sill was unexpected and so cheerful it gets top honors.
- At Forever and Ever House Jill blogged about decorating her green room and even offered a giveaway for some lucky advice giver so you know I enjoyed that.
- What beautiful collages in green at Poppins garden. I loved them all. Sorry for breaking my own rules and not picking just one.
- It was also tough to narrow it down to just one on Bailiwick Designs but that little green bird told me to pick him and he is so cute how could I say no?
- Love the green and white toile shams at Harrington House.
- I’d like to see a whole forest of the primitive green pine tree at Enriched.
- Anyone would want to take lunch in the fun bag Nancy of Thread In Hand made for her sister.
- The yummy treats Tara shared on Days Missed on a Hammock made my mouth water but I ordered the spinach salad.
- You gotta love a $3.00 TJMaxx find but check out how Jen at Sanctuary Arts at Home made it even better.
- Love the little wristlet bag from Kimberly at Niesz Vintage Home. I never said my favorites had to be green did I?
- At Fabric Paper Thread the glass fishing ball was something I hadn’t seen before. What a great find.
- Two hanging plates in green and white were my pick at Oak Rise Cottage.
- I’m with Angela of Cottage Magpie on this one. Emily’s green couch shown on Remodeling This Life is a perfect hue of blue green.
- The vintage wallpaper on Tuija from Ruusuja ja rikkaruohoja (Roses and Weeds) caught my eye.
- The fishbowl at Sew Delish is so cool I might have to get one for my office.
- The gorgeous close up of the green flower at Kullervilla is wonderful.
- Carol taught me something with her green map at Terra Nova Design.
- At Idaho Quilter the quilt square is my favorite but I also want to give a nod to the picture of the spools of thread in the header, which are green in a different way.
Many thanks to Angela from Cottage Magpie for rounding up so much great green!
