The Essence of Spring

Easter 2019 7

When springtime finally rolls around, many of us are anxious to replace our cozy and comfy winter decor with light pastel colors, natural found objects and fresh flowers.

Granted, you can go to the big box stores and buy colorful spring decor by the bucketful, but we prefer to hunt around flea markets and antique shops and put together vintage spring decor with a natural vibe and a bit of soul. We think it adds to the specialness of the season if we include quirky objects, antique and vintage relics and rarities, natural bird nests, and conversation pieces that remind us of celebrations past and hark back to Grandma’s house.

Featured at vintageadirondack.com this month are some of the special items we’ve collected for you this Spring, so you don’t have to do all the leg work.

This vintage kitchen scale makes a perfect platform for Easter eggs:

This beautiful white porcelain pitcher is just the right size for a bouquet of pussy willows:
