A fresh new look for Spring!

My thoughts have been turning towards the new season which will soon be upon us and so it was 'out with the old and in with the new' in my kitchen at the weekend! Well, of course nothing is actually new - except the look! I decided a fresh and Spring-like appearance was needed for one of my dresser tops - plus it was a good opportunity to give it a good clean!!

I rummaged through some of my pretty chintz and cottageware china and re-dressed the dresser! It is looking just a tad minimalist for me - but I'm sure I can work on that!

All that light space really sets off my stunning amaryllis which is in full bloom. This was a Christmas present and has turned out to be a real stunner! It is called Red Lion - a very appropriate name!

All this early Spring cleaning has put me in the mood to do some painting - not the artistic kind though! As soon as I can decide on the right shade of green, my old 1940s kitchen cupboards will be transformed!

Have a wonderful weekend!
