Spring... a time for nesting


I thought I'd do a little tweaking to my dining room hutch...


I got a little mini-lamp from the Christmas Tree Shop for one corner.


...because I've seen so many blogs with lovely little accent lamps on their hutches, and I love that look!


It's a perfect little accent light for at night, when a full size lamp isn't necessary (this little guy takes just a low watt chandelier bulb)...


These photos were taken during the day so you can see the lamp better.


It's surrounded by favorite family photos, two little white bird/napkin rings...


... and, of course, a nest...


...because, after all, spring really is a time for nesting... Wishing you all a happy spring week wherever you are!

What an enchanting vignette you've created on you hutch with the lamp and the sweet little nest perched prettily on the crystal! So pretty!

I love it. You have such a good eye for putting things together to look so cute.

Hey, you must tell me...where did you get those darling bird napkin rings? I've got to try and find some! I think I "need" them. LOL

Hugs,
Joanne

Your dresser is beautiful. Love the lamp, I think I'll have to look out for one for mine but I'm a bit wary of the children pulling the wires!!!

By the way sorry I forgot to say but thank you for the links on your post with my cushion, I had some lovely visitors :)

I used to have a small lamp in our kitchen some years ago.... I think I gave it away to my SIL and it now resides in California. After seeing this post I think perhaps I need to buy another lamp for the kitchen.. Your re-do looks very nice btw.

I love what you've done to your hutch! So sweet and springy! And the nest is perfect. We have a little lamp like that in our kitchen. After all the day's work is done, we turn it on and it casts a lovely glow on the room. Have a great day, Donna.

Hi Donna :)

Your home always looks so beautiful... warm in the winter and cool and breezy during the warmer months. I love the look of the lamp on the hutch! I think I'll have to be a copy cat ;)

hugs,
