  1. Lora, I loved seeing more parts of your home on this tour. I can only imagine what it’s been like to try to get into selling mode and then hit pause again. Glad you took the opportunity to decorate for spring! As a budding gardener, I fell in love with your garden-themed mantel! Those bloom and grow pillows are the cutest, and I love seeing all your vintage finds. Pinned!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Crisssy! Yes, the sell or stay mode is not fun; think we’re stalled for now…covid has made everything crazy:( But I’m content to decorate!

  2. This was such a fun spring home tour for me Lora! You know I am all about anything garden-inspired! I am glad to hear that you are unpacking your treasures and are not moving. Your Grandmother’s garden quilt makes such a beautiful tablecloth. I can’t get over all your fun vintage pieces and you always do such a great job styling everything. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Kim! I enjoy the garden in and out, too!

  3. I love your home in every season, but holy moly does Spring look good on it! I’m so full of ideas from your styling and my vintage wish list has grown by a lot too!!!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Definitely think our homes have their “favorite” seasons, too, Kristin! And I’m always happy to expand someone’s vintage wish list;)

  4. Lora I always enjoy seeing all your beautiful vintage treasures. You have so many fun spring decorating ideas too🌷🌷

    I just love your vintage garden vibe. Those lockers are so cute with your sweet décor tucked inside. So fun doing these tours together.

    You have put a lot of thought into making your house a

  9. Love all your Spring touches! Such a great idea to to a garden theme! I’m getting so excited to have a garden again! Happy Spring!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, I’m excited for gardening season, too, Kori! Nice to enjoy it inside until that time comes;)

  10. Lora!! Your home is so beautiful!! I loved your garden theme!! I went back and forth between doing the same thing at my house this year! Great minds think alike!! PS Depression glass is my favorite! My Grammy has some and now I’m on the hunt!! I want it in all the colors!! Haha

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I love it too, Aliya! Think I have some of it in pink, green, amber, aqua, and light blue. I could almost set a rainbow table! Hope you find some!

  11. Lora what a lovely Spring Home Tour! I really enjoyed the garden theme…you did such a great job! I loved learning about you vintage prints and looking at all of your lovely displays! Thanks for joining us this week and sharing your beautiful home with us! Pinned!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks so much for including me, Kelly! Such a fun week to be a part of! Thanks for pinning:)

  12. Marilyn Holeman says:

    Hi Lora,
    I have the same Jesus Never Fails sign that you have on your piano, except that mine is stained wood where yours is white! (Yours is easier to read!) It belonged to my parents. Can you tell me anything about them? Mine is hanging on my living room wall. Thanks!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Wish I had more info for you, Marilyn, but don’t remember where I even got it:( I just loved it for the colors, the cottage, and the message. Happy Easter week!

  13. Lora, your garden themed spring tour is sheer perfection! I love the mantel, the lockers, and those fun “bloom” and “grow” pillows! Pinned and sharing on IG! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

    1. Thanks for sharing your charming spring tour at Vintage Charm! Pinned!

      1. Lora Bloomquist says:

        Your welcome!

    2. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks so much, Cecilia! I was certainly ready to enjoy all the beauty and hope Spring brings!

  14. Hey bestie! I loved this tour and wish I could tour it in person. The photos make me want to sit and stay a while. I think I could spend the entire day in the gold chair. Everything is so cheerful! And I totally need to take a cue from you and put one large thing on the wall and change things out on top instead of putting more holes in the walls. The hubs rolls his eyes and mumbles “swiss cheese” every time it’s a new season. :0 Everything looks amazing! So glad you shared it with us!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I am rolling on the ground laughing over your “swiss cheese” mention, Cindy! I can just picture it:) Opposites do attract, right? My hubs could and would love to live in a house that never changed. Poor him!

  15. A lovely welcome to spring bright decor. You did a lot of work, it is appreciated. I have a quilt top like that made by my grandmother, probably in the 1920’s or 30’s. She got carried away, I think, as it is king sized, but never thought to use as is. It can be folded up, thanks for the idea!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      King-sized?! That would make an amazing tablecloth! Definitely use it and enjoy! Glad you went away with an idea you can use!

  16. Marlene Stephenson says:

    I don’t know how you do it but, it is so pretty and filled with lots of spring inspiration. Thanks for all your hard work.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Marlene! Guess it shows that I love it all:)

  17. What a gorgeous home you have, Lora. I loved every detail. A garden theme is perfect for spring and you absolutely nailed it! Pinned!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Jen!

  18. Hi Lora,

    I loved your tour with all your goodies. You have so many treasures. I love your wreath and how you hung your pictures. So pretty. I remember that haul you found with all your finds. Love the chandelier and your tool boxes. We don’t have super great thrifting finds like this in NJ. I keep searching for pieces and when I find something I Love I grab it.

    PINNED your beautiful inspiring tour.

    Cindy

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      So glad you enjoyed it, Cindy! Yes, I’m still working through those great finds from last Spring, and now it’s almost time for another curbside season…but I don’t have any room! What a horrible problem to have:( But where there’s a will, there’s a way! If good junk calls…

  19. Your home tours are always a treat for the eyes, and your Spring tour was so fun! You have so many, many vintage treasures and you are so talented at making the “junk” look good! I want to go curbside junkin with you!! Loved your tour Lora!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Cindy! Yes, junkin’ season is upon me, and I’m struggling to find the space for more goodies in the rough. Can’t get to the projects fast enough:( If only my hands worked as fast as my brain does!

  20. Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces says:

    What a beautiful tour. Lora! Everything is so pretty dressed up for spring! I loved how you used the lockers and the chandelier and beadboard look SO good. Wonderful tour!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Linda! To think I was a little doubtful when we scooped that chandelier up in the curbside pile; glad I grabbed first and figured it out later. That’s what you’ve got to do with vintage junk! We always say, “you can always burn it, or scrap it”!

  21. What a lovely tour, Lora! I truly enjoyed every single picture that you shared. I’m also happy to read that you are no longer planning to sell your home and that you are unpacking and enjoying your vintage treasures. I loved how you displayed your R. A Fox prints. I need to start paying attention when I’m antiquing to see if I can find any of his work. Your mantel looks so good. Love your vintage pot collection. That’s something that I collect as well. Your Grandmother’s Garden quilt makes a great tablecloth and seeing it brought back memories of sleeping under a quilt made with that pattern by a relative. Using an old cosmetics case on your piano for a vignette is a great idea! My mom still uses her cosmetics case from the 1960s!

    1. What a pretty tour, Lora! I especially love your R.A. Fox prints. Hanging them was such a unique way to display them. Saving that idea! Your grandmother’s quilt is fabulous and love the way you used it! I so enjoyed touring your home!

      1. Lora Bloomquist says:

        Glad you enjoyed it, Kim! Yes, I love those prints and have been collecting them for a long time. It’s so fun to enjoy them this time of year and decorate around their pretty colors.

    2. Lora Bloomquist says:

      So glad you enjoyed it all, Paula! I was struggling with the mantel for quite a while, but when I remembered that old pop crate, it all started falling into place. Can’t say I’m unpacking everything:( Not until we know for sure what we’re doing or not doing. Kinda feels like a huge failure to unpack it all and have to find a place for it all. Time will tell. Kind of in a holding pattern right now; covid has screwed up so many things:( I’ll just keep shuffling things back and forth to the storage unit (and get rid of whatever I’m sick of).
