Spring on the Kitchen Hutch

Did you guess what else I found at the thrift store? 

A little wheelbarrow, for only $3! 

So, I decided, since it was probably still a little too cool to plant the rest of the Pinks in the garden, I'd load them in the wheelbarrow on the kitchen hutch.

I added chicks...

... and little clay flower pots from the Dollar Tree...three for a dollar.

A couple of the pots got faux boxwood balls...

...and one got a bunch of carrots.

Pink and green plates... mugs...

...and a mix of real and faux flowers...

...make it feel like Spring. 
Maybe, if the weather is nice this week, I'll plant the Pinks in the garden.

Love the vignette you created. The wheel barrow looks adorable. I just dug mine out and was dreaming on ideas for it. Love the green plates, pink cups and clay pots. Super cute!

Kelly said...

No I didn't guess that was a wheelbarrow. It's so cute! It looks great as part of your Spring décor. I think tomorrow is going to be nicer so maybe you can plant tomorrow.

You had me at yellow chicks. The green cabbage plates and the pink plates are lovely arranged with the wheelbarrow full of flowers on those sweet plaid placemats. I hope it warms up so you can get your pinks planted this week.

Spring is in the air everywhere! Your hutch looks so spring-y. I think we were on the same wave length this week with the pink and green combo!

This is so pretty, Babs! Colorful without screaming color! ;)

I really love the pink/red dishes with the green. Very springlike! So many the seed packs, too!


Sarah said...

Babs, your spring in the kitchen hutch is perfectly charming. Love the way you used the cabbage leaf plates as your backdrop and added in the pink. The wheelbarrow is a great holding pattern for the pinks. It's obvious you had fun putting this together. Great job!

Now, this speaks Spring to me!!! Love the colors and the plaid mats, the chicks are so cute too!!

Diane said...

Everything is wonderful, Babs. The wheelbarrow is adorable, but I really loved what you did with the clay pot that it lying on its side. That stole my heart!!

You know how to put it all together, Babs! Lovely, just right for spring!!

Alycia Nichols said...

Hey, Babs! I'm really crushin' on those baby boxwood balls! I've never seen them that small. They would be great all around...just like you have them!

Glad to see you're able to bring a little Spring indoors since apparently it is NEVER going to come outdoors!!! :-)

I love how you paired up the cabbage leaf plates with the pink plates, the combination of the textures in the plates look great together! I think I am drawn in these days more by interesting texture and shape than by color, although your hutch vignette has all three, so it is a hit in my eyes!!

Alison said...

I envy you that pretty china. I've always loved the plates that resemble green cabbage leaves. Spring is all go here in England!
