Julie's latest video...
The redheaded minimalist has arrived 😯 . I’m not sure where she came from, how she got here, or if she’ll stick around, but for today, she is in the house. Our foyer is ready for Easter/spring and all it took was 1 ceramic bunny. Yep. One. Ceramic. Bunny. Here’s the hopper, I mean kicker…I found the bunny at the thrift store a couple years ago [SCORE]. Welcome to the “Thrifty Style Team” April edition, and my “Thrifty Spring Foyer” which is part of “14 Thrifty Spring Home Decorating Ideas”. Lots of THRIFTIES for ya.
Let’s see if you can find the thrift store bunny…
You may recall the black credenza I painted a couple years ago. She still looks so pretty black, and I really get a kick out of complimenting the black with a deep radiant blue. At first, I thought the credenza might look too large for the foyer, but it fit perfectly, and gave me so much storage space. You might find this funny, but that one cabinet on the right is where I stash water bottles for my bedside table. Our bedroom is to the right of that long mirror, so it’s a perfect spot to grab a midnight gulp of h20. Hey, when you’re thirsty, you’re thirsty.
So, you might be wondering where in the heck is all the Easter spring decor, Julie? Well, I say…what’s wrong with just the 1 bunny? I think it’s rather beautiful, and a huge statement. Okay, maybe I could have added a couple Easter eggs or something, but don’t forget I have 3 furry felines running around, and they have been very mischievous lately. Our new rescue kitty, “Spooky” likes anything round including tomatoes 😯 .
Oh, and I also have that rather busy “Garden Glove Spring Wreath” on the front door, too.
I was thinking about adding some logs for our our fireplace down on the bottom rack. What do you think of that idea? I feel like it would add some rustic authenticity to it. What would you add, or take away? The original “Thrift Store Platter Wall” is also an affordable project. Luckily, in the next photo you can’t see me taking the photo in that blurry platter.
With Easter only a few weeks away, I hope you can visit your local thrift store and have some fun hunting ceramic bunnies (they seem to have them a lot!). I have a full collection of thrift store bunnies and they are all so beautiful. I don’t think I could ever give something so pretty away to a thrift store, but then again not everything in the thrift store was given away knowingly, or freely. Unfortunately, we have to remember that our favorite treasures will not all end up in our loved one’s hands. However, we can rest assured that someone will find our treasures and bring new life to them…
