My "Springified" Kitchen Window

Here is the window above my kitchen sink all "Springified". I spend A LOT of time in my kitchen so I guess that's why I am always decorating in here and do a lot of posts about this room. Hope you don't mind. Recently my sweet husband added some wood on this window ledge to make a wider shelf and I totally love it 'cause now I can have a lamp and other accessories up there. Before I just had a narrow ledge and it was hard to find things that would sit there and not fall off. I always love new places to add more STUFF! I am looking forward to going to some yard sales this Sat. My mom and I have been missing them! Have a fabulous weekend!

Your "springified" window is very pretty and inspiring! I am soon moving to a new home with wide windowsills throughout the house. My current home has the narrow ones and I have never been able to put anything on them. I have a chicken plate just like the one in the picture.

Very pretty! I've been working on bringing spring to my home as well :)

I love all your goodies in the window. Love your green bee pitcher.

Katie said...

That is so cute, How did he add a shelf, did he added molding all the way around? It looks really good. Your house is so warm and inviting.

Stacey said...

I love it!! Now you do realize that looks like a model home window. It's so sweet and pretty. Great job!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Very pretty, Angie! It looks like it is a nice depth to hold your beautiful decor. I love your apothecary jar with the nest and the little bird sitting next to it.

Ok, not much makes me jealous...but, this window does! My sink is in the island of our kitchen...I'd love it to be facing a window. I have a wall of windows with a long window seat below it. This is very pretty!

I <3 this. My kitchen window looks somewhat similar. It, too, is between cabinets. I need to get my handy husband to look at this picture. I can definitely relate to the small ledge with things falling off.

Love everything! Your jar with the nest looks wonderful! I'm going out today to find some spring things for my jar. I don't decorate with pinks for Easter...I know I just posted the Easter terrarium, but I bought those bunnies for a demonstration I did at a lady's house. They are cute...but I would rather just do spring. Your hubby is so nice to expand the ledge for you to display your beautiful items on! Love the lamp too...that fabric is soooo cute!! You aways have such cute things...Kristen

Angie,
You've definitely inspired me. My kitchen is laid out very similar to yours. It needs to be redone so badly. I love to decorate like you do and love a lot of the same things. You inspired me enough to create my own blog as my house takes shape. Come and visit: http://wendyssocalledcreativelife.blogspot.com/

Lara said...

Angie that is so beautiful! I love your decorating style. I've never decorated my house for Spring before, but I will start this year. Thanks for the inspiration.. always enjoy your posts! :-)

Melissa Miller said...

Angie this really looks pretty for Spring! Love the nest in the jar and all of the fresh green colors.

Tracy @ ComfortandLuxury said...

Very pretty. Love your nest-in-a-jar and that you managed to squeeze not one but two lamps into this little space! Widening the sill was a smart thing to do, too. Happy Friday.

Mrs. Cozy Home said...

Where, where, where did you get the beautiful bronze apothecary jar? Oh please do tell... :)

grandmapam said...

I have to tell you Angie that I had a sofa with the same flowery fabric that's at your kitchen window. It looks so nice in your 'spring window'..loving wide that shelf!

Diva Kreszl said...

oh I just love the window sill decor! wonder if I could get my hubby to do that for me?

Lynda said...

What a fantastic looking window!! I'm going to steal some of your ideas! Beautiful, and so warm and inviting.

Lou Cinda said...

LOVE this! The nest in the jar is so gorgeous! I am going to show this to my husband and see if he can make my window sill wider!

Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend!

The wider shelf is great! I love your springified window. That pitcher is so cute (and you know that's one of my favorite colors)!

Megan said...

I really like the white pitcher full of flowers hanging from the hook. Very different display but very pretty. I'm glad I stopped by today. I've been inspired to do some "Spring Decorating" of my own.

Debbie @ ribbonwoodcottage.blogspot.com said...

Angie, I love your kitchen and never get tired of seeing pictures. In fact you give me such inspiration to try things different in my house. I love how you group things together. I think you have an exceptional gift for decorating. I never get tired of seeing your pictures...did I say that already? Well I mean it. Love your kitchen! Love your spring touches too. They look great. I have been on the lookout for more topiaries because of you. I love how you incorporate them everywhere. I would squeal with delight if I found a bunny one...I did find a rooster one at Michaels on sale for 7.00...yipeee. Made my day! I thought of you when I got it!
Big Hugs!
Debbie

Melanie said...

It looks lovely! The extra width let you add a lot of pretties!

Hi Angie,
This is absolutely beautiful. Nice shelf! You have a wonderful way of decorating. I love the pitcher hanging on the hook with the flowers. I would like to try that idea. So cute!

Jenni @ nest to keep said...

Hi Angie,
Your kitchen window area is AMAZING! I love it all! I like how you decorated the whole space, and could never get sick of seeing your kitchen! :) Your new window sill is wonderful! My husband just made our living room ones wider last weekend and I love them! I wanted a wider one in our kitchen, but we got tired and I just put moulding around the window instead...but now you have me thinking we should after all! :)

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Mimi Sue said...

Love little lamps in the kitchen. Makes things so cozy. Mimi

Becca said...

Hi,
I commented recently about how similar our decorating styles are. Today on my blog, I posted the before and afters of my kitchen. Check out my toile curtains in the "after" pictures! I've had them up for a few years now, but when I saw your blog I was stunned at how similar they are. http://becca-homeiswheremystorybegins.blogspot.com/2010/03/i-just-couldnt-embrace-blue.html

Connie said...

Love your spring decor. Especially the large bunny tray above the hutch.
I'm having a 'just because' giveaway over at my blog if you would like to stop by and take a look.

Thanks,
Connie

Hi Angie,
I just found you through Cathy at "Cobblestone Farms".
I love your blog and have enjoyed reading many of your postings. Your home is beautiful!
I was wondering what color paint did you use for your entry that you show in your March 4th post. It's the photo of what looks to be your entry with a table and mirror above it?. I have been looking for a creamy yellow color paint for my new home.
I have become a follower.
Take care and enjoy your day, Elizabeth~Home is Where the Heart is

Debbie said...

YOu have great taste! I love all your color choices:)
