Faeries and Fauna Spring Home Tour

Home and Garden Spring Home Tour

I am really happy to be collaborating with these awesome bloggers in putting on a home and garden Spring tour.  I would love to live south where the gardens are in bloom, the decks are in use and the sunshine has warmth in it.   Some of my friends have gardens in their tours.   You will find their tours at the end of my post.  Enjoy!

Almost Spring Home Tour

The calendar says its Spring, but it certainly isn’t Spring outdoors here yet.  There is still snow and the outdoor plants haven’t sprouted.  Everyone here is anxious awaiting the warm days of Spring.   Spring decor is so much fun to do, decorating with all the pretty pastel colours lifted my spirits. .

Welcome

Normally there is a large mirror in the front foyer, it is very practical for taking a last minute check before heading out the door.  Unfortunately it reflects the staircase  so it ruins any decor pictures.  Instead of taking the mirror down, I covered it with a really pretty Spring wall hanging.  The 3 tier tray is made over from fall and is galvanized matching the chalkboard and flower bowl.  Spring decor especially blush spring decor is excessively feminine;  I toned it down by using galvanized metal and birch bark.

Main Living Area

The  blush, soft blue  and bunny theme carries through into the kitchen.  This little welcoming lady bunny cookie jar is a thrift store find from last week.  Although there is still snow outside, you can tell by the shine that it is a gloriously bright clear blue day.

Kitchen

This is the first time I have posted the table and chairs without chair covers of some sort.  I planned on making some for Spring but ran out of time.  You may be able to tell how much this hard working set needs a refinishing.   Hopefully they receive their well earned makeover before Summer.

 As this is our only table it is very busy, because of that I use a small centerpiece that can be easily moved.  This little bunny is sitting on a sugar starched hand crocheted pansy doily and a galvanized plate charger.  The sugar starch makes the doily solid, it doesn’t bend and can be dusted. Close to Easter I will surround it with chocolate eggs.  I think that the active areas of the house should have simpler decor.

The family room is my favorite room in the whole house.  The windows are so bright and cheerful.  During the summer you can look out and see the flower covered deck. To allow more light in I moved all the furniture away from the windows. Moving furniture around in a room or better yet between rooms can quickly update and refresh a room your bored with and best of all it’s free.

These sentries are guarding their treasures.  Who can blame them they look delicious.

This little dragonfly cushion is a recent find,  it was worth buying for the bling and sparkle.  It’s not cuddly or practical,  I made some of those.  This one is pure bling.

I feel one of the best parts of diy accessories is being able to coordinate them. The little rabbits on this cushion are appliqued in the same fabric as the diy spring tea towels on the stove.  Both tutorials are coming up on the blog.

For spring I only decorated two rooms upstairs, the main man cave got a few items and the guest bedroom for my grand daughters.  The other rooms are refreshed for Spring but don’t have any fun bunnies, or fresh flowers.

This gorgeous caddy is from the Interior Frugalista, I love it.  The rest of the ornaments are odds and sods I grabbed from the storage room and a small bundle of fresh spring flowers.

    1. Hi Christine. Home tours are so much work to put together, but once I am tweeking the photos its pure fun from then on. I am very glad you joined us and I am sure we will get to know each other better. Your post was gorgeous as well. I still remember that pretty blue jar.

  2. Very inspiriting Easter decor. I think I might have to dust off my bunnies now. I am knee deep in classes and working for the Church but I want spring in my house!

    1. Edmonton has all kinds of jack rabbits and I love them. Because of the rabbits I can keep the bunnies out a little bit longer. After bunny season is yard season. So many outdoor projects planned for this year, but the Spring cleaning and decorating is done.

      The classes are what I have to find time for now.

  3. All of your soft spring colours and of course the bunnies everywhere are so pretty Leanna and add a lot of spring vibe! I hope it gets there soon for you!! Your house looks bright and lovely!!

    1. Hi Katrin: It was so much fun to decorate in blush colours. Pink and white are my two favorite colours and I was able to use them throughout the house. I love bunnies and lambs for Spring while I wait for the first blooms to appear.

      Thank you very much for commenting.

    1. I usually plant my flowers beds on Mother’s day weekend. Although I cannot wait for Spring I am a bit hesitant about all the outdoor projects I have planned for the summer.

      Thank you for stopping by my home tour. I continue to learn about blog land and discovering new things.

      Have a great week Michelle. Hugs Leanna

  4. Leanna – I LOVE that crocheted Pansy Doile! And your entry way is bright and cheerful! Your home looks so welcoming and comfortable – can’t wait to read the tutorials coming up!

    1. Everytime I do a doily it reminds me of my Mom and Grandmother. I can remember really large doilies all propped up with small glasses so they would dry and harden just so. Nice feminine memories,Pansy’s are probably my favorite flower so I have a real soft spot for crocheted ones.

      I know that doilies date me as older, but oh well, I like them. lol
      Have a wonderful week and thank you for the kind comment.

  5. I love your blog Too!!! Your home is so beautiful!!! & I love how you brightened up the dark couch with the blush pink throw!! Your family room is so bright i love it!!

    1. Thank you Kellie: The minute I saw those windows I knew we had found our new home. Daylight is my favorite decor element and the longer days are here already.

      Blush pink is a bit over the top for Spring decor, but it, white and gold are my blog colours so I tried it. Thank you for the feedback, it makes me happy with my choices. Its great doing this blog hop with you. Leanna

  6. You may live in snowy Canada Leanna but your home is full of spring cheer. Everything is so bright and fresh. And the pillow with the dragonfly is so precious. I know your granddaughters will love those giant carrots in their room too.

    1. Spring takes forever to get here, yet Easter zooms up on you. I am really glad to have these carrots finished for them. Purchase a bag of chocolate eggs and I am ready for them.

      Thank you for commenting Mary.

  7. What a lovely home and tour. I love how you have the blush but made it so the men in your life still feel comfortable. By touring your house I would never know you still have cold weather. Your home is so warm and inviting.

    1. Honestly Debra I could decorate my whole house in 6 year old princess style all sparkles, tulle and glitz. They might pack me away for being a crazy old lady if I did that though lol.

      I always want my house to look cared for and feel comfortable. Thank you for commenting, it means lots to me.

    1. Hi Lynn. I look forward to seeing your home decorated. I am really curious to see how you design it.

      Thank you for commenting and have a great week.

  8. Leanna, Your entry is just a show stopper, I love it! My very favorite thing is the two bunnies guarding their carrots…that is something I have never seen before and is so cute! I am always loving your needlework and sewing and can’t wait for your tutorials. Love the touches of Spring!

    1. Hi Debra: Long story but I made a carrot planting craft to do with my grand daughters. This decor project is a spin off of that child’s craft.

      Thank you for the compliments, I am so proud to be doing this home tour with you. Your home is beautiful!

  9. Leanna your home is lovely! All that sunshine sure makes it look like spring is already there and I agree that the more used areas should have less decor. It makes it so much easier to get it out of the way quickly, lol! I am in love with those carrots and I am still planning on making a couple for my granddaughters.

    1. Hi Susanne: Sometimes its a hard choice between functionality and putting out something fun or pretty that you like.

      With the kitchen I find it easy, clutter on the counters is a pet peeve for me.

      Thank you for commenting and enjoy your week.

    1. Hi Marjan: New seasonal cushions make such a nice update to the year around couch. Thank you for the encouraging feedback.

  10. Hi Leanna,
    I love all your bunnies sprinkled around your downstairs. Love the bunny wall-hanging over the mirror, and the displays on your coffee table & dining table. Makes me wish I had a few bunnies. I might have to make a trip out to Hobby Lobby. Like the dragonfly pillow too. You may have snow outside, but Spring has sprung inside.

    1. Thank you very much Florence. It was fun to place out the cute bunnies, birds and florals. Brightens up the home and makes the wait for real Spring easier.

      Thank you for commenting. Leanna

  11. Your home looks beautiful Leanna! I love all of the subtle touches. It pulls every room together without going over the top. My favourite things are the sentries guarding the carrots, and yes, even some of the bling. lol Excellent job! I can’t wait to see the tutorials.

    1. Thank you my friend xxo. Those carrots guarding the carrots are pretty close to how you and I had to guard the roast beast. Full time day and night, no pay and no breaks and no water even lol

      Hugs Lea

  12. Hi Leanna, I luv those UBER carrots on the bed….LOL…and the centerpiece with the bunnies guarding the carrots in the middle…too cute. I haven’t even started on Spring decorating….Such a slacker!!! HUGS

    1. With all the home renovations going on at your house, slacker you are not. As soon as Easter is over we are tackling some large projects, daunting to think about.

      Thank you for commenting. The feedback is wonderful.

  13. Leanna!! your Spring tour has filled my heart! Love all of your beautiful pink touches throughout your home! Your bunny banner hanging on your mirror sure is a welcoming sight. I also love the bunnies guarding their carrots! So cute! Thank you for welcoming us into your beautiful home 🙂

    1. Hi Sam: Spring cannot get here soon enough. Its a real treat to have fresh flowers and green living things around. Thank you for the compliment on the rabbit sentries.

      Have a great week. Leanna

  14. Your home always look so natural and pretty! I like that you keep it simple. and show the beauty of your home and its not filled with so much stuff that you can’t see the true beauty! Hugs Maria

    1. Thank you Maria. Stuff has a way of taking over. Thank you for complimenting me on the balance between bare and just enough.

      Enjoy your week and thank you for the feedback. Leanna

  15. Your Spring home tour is amazing! I am especially in love with the bunnies guarding their carrots and the oversized carrot pillows for your granddaughters. Beautiful!
    Thank you so much for sharing at My Busy Beehives #beeparty this week!

  16. Very clever way of getting around the reflections in the mirror. 😉

    I enjoyed your tour. Hope you have a real spring soon. It is definitely spring here in TX.

    1. Thank you so much for your generous comment. Your comment seriously made my day. Love the thought that my vignettes are whimsical, especially for anything that I create for my grand daughters.

  17. Love your Spring Tour, Leanna! I absolutely adore the bunny wall hanging in the entry, and the carrot pillows in your granddaughter’s guest room!

  18. You have such pretty things at every turn. How lovely!
    Great idea to cover the mirror for the tour, mirrors can really reflect what you don’t want all to see sometimes – they are great in real life, not so great for photo life!
    We are lucky that spring really does seem to have sprung here in the UK. We’ve had some rainy days but lots of warm sunny spells too. Fingers crossed yours arrives soon.

  19. Happy Pink Saturday, Leanna. Thank you for joining us and making Pink Saturday special. I hope you will be back for every Pink Saturday.

    This post is being featured on my Pink Saturday post this week as “the one with the most clicks”. ♥
