~Primming Up and Springing Up~

Good day everyone...I hope everyone is having a wonderful Spring day, it's chilly here but sometimes sunny so in a way that's a good thing and this morning I saw not one but two robins when I took Samantha to preschool:) Also haven't been using the fireplace insert that much so it does look like spring is just around the corner!

I've been looking and drooling at everyone who has posted pictures of their spring decorating and I must say they are all just beautiful and so inspiring makes me want to open all the windows and doors to let some warm air in but that's not going to happen today but soon real soon:)

This is in my keepingroom and thought I'd add this blue towel that I've had for years on the towel rack that I had found at the fleamarket a couple years ago for $4.00 it's very old and weathered:0
I love this wooden bunny that I won on ebay a few years ago, I'll always keep him because I paid way to much for him.lol Yeah, I got caught up on the bidding and I sure learned my lesson...put in a bid and let it go.!!! I'm to ashamed to say how much I paid for him but I'll just say...more than he's worth!
This is a pewter cup that Michael received when he was born, it has the alphabet on it so it's about 35 years old, someday it will be with him. This rabbit came from The Country House catalog.

I made this little bunny angel...you can see the carrot stitched on her skirt, her wings are made from an old quilt then I made it really stiff with liquid starch.
I've been busy today guess you could say I have my hand in every pot:) I took the girls to school went to GW while Samantha was in school then picked her up:) Now I'm painting, staining, stitching and coffee dyeing!
Not much at GW but I did find a new package of 2yds of cheese cloth for .79 which I dyed and baked, maybe tomorrow I'll stop buy the Country Store and see if she has brought in anything new:)
Have a great evening!


  1. I love your towel rack, your bunnies, and that pewter candle stick ! Sounds like you are busy today. I can't wait to open the windows. Sometimes I have to open them a little even in the winter just for that cool air ! Enjoy your afternoon !
    Janae :-)

  2. Rondell~Your Spring decorating looks fantastic!
    I wish I had some prim Spring decor, but I haven't found any at GW and I really felt like creating lately!
    I'm sure that when the weather starts getting warmer and the sun shines longer the creative juices will once again become unfrozen!!
    I sent you an email about the dinnerware. I will keep you posted for sure!

  3. I love the towel rack in your keeping room with all of your goodies. I have a weakness for old children's socks! I love reading your blog and look forward to it every day! Dawn

  4. It's looking like spring at your house too! I know what you mean - it looked warmer than it actually was and I was so tempted to open the window myself. Soon we will!!

  5. If you are happy w/ your Ebay bunny - then that's all that counts! (you can't put a price on happiness!) I love all your bunnies and your son's pewter cup is gorgeous!

  6. Your house looks as if it has welcomed Spring time and before you know it you will be opening those windows. I know what you mean about getting carried away with bidding, I did that for a doll once, I do not regret it, love the doll but will never ever do that again! I know the seller was thrilled, for sure!

  7. As long as that ebay bunny makes you happy he is worth every penny! Enjoy him! Your towel rack looks great!

  8. I have that same(almost) towel rack. I need to dig it out and hang it again! It was pretty sunny here this afternoon, but really, really cold!

    Have a great day, Denise

  9. We had a few days of warm weather, but now it has turned chilly again!
    Love your spring decor and that towel rack!!

  10. I love your towel rack and all of your bunnies even the wooden one.


  11. I love that towel rack!! I've been wanting one like that, buy I'm not sure where I'd put it. I love the pewter pieces too! The rest of your spring things are looking great:) It won't be long now!!

  12. Rondell,
    I love all your touches of spring. It all looks just right. That pewter cup is priceless. Now if only the weathe would cooperate.
    Have a great evening.

  13. Everything looks great! I haven't gotten my things out for Spring yet. I'm getting inspired by looking at all your nice things.

  14. I'm jealous of all the springy stuff. I don't have much. Must say I do love that bunny. And the pewter baby mug. That's precious.

  15. Hi Rondell!....that's too funny about the ebay bunny....well it's not funny but you know what I mean!....good thing it's a cute bunny!....looks like you are on your way to spring! Janet :)

  16. Rondell,
    I love your towel rack...I would like one, but I can't seem to figure out where I would hang it.
    Love the wood rabbit you got from eBay. I need to get out what little Spring stuff that I have.
    I'm so ready for warmer days...we had a warm day earlier this week, but it is cold again. I'm so ready for Spring it get here!

  17. I like yer expensive wooden bunny, the way he's running is very unusual...love that angel bunny you made!

  18. I especially love those pictures of your keeping room, Rondell! I really still love the touches of blue! That towel rack is great! Actually all your touches of spring look wonderful!

    Like you, I'm ready for spring! At least we didn't get the ice they thought we were getting. Hopefully, we'll have a pretty weekend!

    Can't wait to see what all your stitchin' and dyeing!

  21. Rondell, I love that first pic! It is so perfectly prim! The blue towel looks so nice against the drab colors. But I love the drab colors too!

  24. Well I sure enjoyed your post.
    I love what you did with the towel rack in the bathroom - love the old socks.
    We gave our boys their cups already so I have 3 less Pewter items in my house...lol
