Introducing Myself and Filling You in About Me and My Blog

Before I begin sharing a tour of our home with you for spring, I want to take a moment to tell you a bit about myself. My name is Cindy, and my blog is Cloches & Lavender and I hope you take a look around and sign up to follow my blog.

I enjoy sharing home decorating ideas especially seasonally to inspire my readers. I also share easy crafts with detailed tutorials to inspire my readers to give these craft ideas a try.

Today, I want you to see the face behind my blog. You may also want to take a moment to read my three year journey. This may give you a better understanding as to why I have hidden behind the camera.

Reeses is my shadow and is taking time keeping an eye on things outside.

Every month I see more and more regrowth on my scalp however, there’s still a long way to go. My doctor says this is encouraging.

As you can see, I use a walker, this is due to my battle with MS. Yes, MS is scary however I’m on a great new biologic that has given me many abilities back. When I first began using a walker, I was truly angry. But I have learned this walker is my best friend. It allows me to take my blog photos on my own again.

It allows me to grab what I need to pile in the cart for cooking and baking. Extra bonus it gives me a bit of ability to play with our Mini Dachshunds, Reeses and Peanut.

Pieces I Enjoy Adding and Decorating Our Home for Spring

When it comes to adding pieces and decorating our home I often lean towards ironstone, vintage and new dishes. Also, Italian Florentine plaques, trays and pictures.

Welcome to our home and I hope you enjoy seeing easy spring decorating ideas in our home. The calendar says spring, however, in Northern NJ the weather is still quite cool.

I’m hoping tomorrow we can finally buy some violas. Violas are one of my favorites because of their delicate nature.

Immediately as you enter our kitchen, I keep our centerpiece simple with an ironstone pitcher filling it with pussy willows on a wood riser for spring. HERE, you can see how to add a new look.

Outside is the puppy’s playpen with its own artificial turf they us on putting greens. We especially built this for pup to sunbathe and play. It’s known as Dachshund Drive.

As a rule, I enjoy changing our hutch seasonally. This spring adding antique blue mason jars, brings out the blues in our china.

The iron cloche and set of three cutting boards are from Antique Farmhouse. I highly recommend these pieces. Here are the links Crown Style Cloche.

I’m loving these bunnies with their long ears. Adding green Spanish moss to this white platter adds a fresh spring addition. Also nestling a signature small crown adds a bit of whimsy. In this post you can read about my love of adding crowns to home decor.

Having a collection of antique teacups from grandmothers and an antique rabbit candy mold finishes this warm weather hutch. Incidentally, this egg is an easy craft idea.

Lastly, is this easy spring wreath I made with a simple to follow tutorial. The combination of the green moss and dried lavender buds with nest is truly amazing and will work through the summer months.

Finishing Adding Simple Touches to the Great Room

Here in the great room, I’m sharing a view of our beautiful ceiling. At times I think ceilings can be overlooked. Remember ceilings are the fifth wall. Details like this can add tons of character and charm to the room.

Meanwhile I keep our coffee clutter free. I try to keep the remotes in the French Table which has doors with metal wire for storage. Having remote controls everywhere makes me a bit crazy.

This spot in the great room will have pots overflowing with pretty summer blooms to enjoy when looking out the window.

If you look closely, you can see the top of Peanut’s head as she’s sniffing.

Incidentally, this a a urn I had bought while thrifting. The edge had a large piece broken however I easily made a repair and it’s like new. This urn many favorites of mine. An Italian Florentine tray, a lace crown and Florentine picture as well as other pretty pieces.

The antique frame is from my grandmother and is holding a piece of lace from the 1920’s.

This spring, I am keeping this simple and filled with my favorite pieces. Ironstone, Italian Florentine especially my new antique Florentine easel from a favorite Etsy of mine.

I also enjoy nestling a bit of the unexpected like antique ironstone tureen that is holding a moss ball. I created this craft using an easy organic lime wash technique. See a full simple to follow tutorial.

By the way, this nest is a great project, looks real and takes 5 minutes to make.

Have a great week. xoxo Kris

    1. I can’t wait for my infusion tomorrow and get something to take away this COVID inflammation away.

  11. Your home is so beautiful and I was inspired reading about your story. After seeing your home tour, I’m convinced that I want more bunnies in my life. You’ve displayed them in such creative ways.

  14. SO many beautiful details Cindy. I am in love with your iron cloche and your moss and dried lavender wreath. Perfect for spring! And the piece that holds your moss balls is lovely. Happy Spring!

  15. Your home is so lovely, peaceful and beautifully styled. I especially appreciate your clutter free attitude. I have lupus and have many of the same challenges as you do. I used to work in a museum and do complicated, engaging displays. Now, as I accept my physical limitations, i only decorate my home. It is clutter free, clean and quite pretty. My little china bunnies and minimal spring decor make me happy. Walking is so very difficult for me now. Yet, I told my doctor last week to expect me to have a SPRING in my step when I see him next month. Positivity goes hand in hand with creativity. You are truly inspiring and your home tour brought me joy on this grey, rainy day in Michigan. Thank you.

  16. Your home is so beautiful Cindy! I love how grand it feels! I love all the sweet little touches of spring!

  17. So much fun to see your home all dressed up for Spring, Cindy! I love the picture of you and Reese too. They are such faithful companions and I know they are cheering you on for all the progress you’ve been making lately. You constantly inspire me to show up and be creative! Can’t wait to see what you’re up to next. Big hugs, CoCo

  18. Hi Cindy! I loved seeing your pretty home dressed up for spring! I love your cabinet and the way you styled it! It was so fun to stop by!
