Spring Table and Hutch - Tulips and Pastels and Lace, Oh My!

Spring table ideas using lace, flowers, pastels, and vintage finds. Postcards from the Ridge

Spring...that time of year when we don our pastel apparel, plant flowers, and paint our toenails. We realize that we need a tan and a treadmill, and are so very happy to see green everywhere we look outdoors. Or maybe that's just me?? Admittedly I love spring and everything about it. Our table and hutch are now dressed for spring and I'm sharing some easy ideas that you can incorporate into your decor.

Our Half Bathroom Renovation Details

1960's rancher half bath reno. An ugly duckling turned into a swan! Love it. Postcards from the Ridge

When you buy a 1960's ranch home, sometimes there are undesirable relics leftover from the past that come with it. But hopefully, eventually, you can say goodbye to those unwanted remnants and replace them with modern day elements. Such was the case with our ugly duckling half bathroom that we finally updated a few months back after 8 1/2 years of living with it. I'm sharing all of the details today. 

Hello, Yellow Tulips

I love it when there are pretty flowers in the sale bucket at the grocery store, It's such a fun and inexpensive way to brighten up the house. I snagged these tulips yesterday and brought them home and put them in one of my white ironstone pitchers.
