Spring is finally here.....although I don't know why I was so excited and anxious for it to get here because our winter here in the south was fairly mild this year and spring always brings me a nice dose of allergies each year. But despite that little negativity, I still just adore spring. It's one of my favorite times of the year. The warmer weather, the pretty pastels, and all the flowers blooming just gets me all kinds of excited.

This year I was thrilled to join together with 24 other amazing bloggers to bring you the One Room Spring Tour sponsored by the lovely Kathleen HERE at Lindsay Hill Interiors. Each day this week this awesome team has been sharing with you one room of their home all dressed up for Spring. I hope y'all have all found some lovely inspiration this week during these tours.....I know I sure have.

The spring room I and 4 other bloggers will be sharing with you today is our kitchen!

This spring it was all about adding more color to our home. Over the winter my home had become pretty natural and neutral, with lots of white on white, and wood accents. For spring I wanted to really brighten up the house with floral and color. To break up my white dishes, white shelves, and white subway tile, I added pops of pastel pinks and blues. I received these blue plates from my Great Grandmother and I loved adding them to the kitchen as a sweet reminder of her. I also found a bunch of these cute pink and blue mugs and bowls in the clearance section at Target about a month back. It just makes me so happy each time I walk in the kitchen and see these fun, sweet colors.

An easy way to add spring into any home is with a fresh bouquet of flowers. I picked these beautiful tulips up the other day for just a couple of bucks at our local grocery store. They instantly add so much charm to the room.

Spring also means the beginning of laying season for my girls. We have 8 hens and they have been loading our kitchen up with delicious farm fresh eggs in the last couple of weeks.

And nothing says spring more than fresh little babies. Do you spy the babies taking a dip in the sink? We got these two little guys from a friend at Easter and the boys have loved taking care of them and watching them grow. They currently waddle around the yard behind Madden and Knox following them wherever they go. Madden thinks it's so funny that the ducklings "think he is their mommy." Soon they will be big enough to go the big pond with the rest of our ducks, but for now cute dips in the sink will do.

The refrigerator is also decked out in spring art by my boys and a yarn hanging by my friend Aubree. You can find her shop on Etsy HERE

Also, if you are curious the fridge and dishwasher are the GE Artistry Series, you can find them HERE. The stove is a vintage 1940's Magic Chef we salvaged from an old kitchen reno. 

I hope you enjoyed our simple spring kitchen tour. The next stop on the tour is sweet Annie over at Zevy Joy HERE so hop on over to see her lovely space.

If you missed any of the previous tours you can find a complete list and schedule for the week below. Thanks for joining us!
