  1. Hi Lora, thank you for your sharing. It gives me some ideas how to decorate my house 🙂 I would like to know where you buy the rabbit (green one) in your photo! Thanks <3

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Moss rabbits can be found on Amazon or at hobby/floral/craft stores.

  2. Lora, thank you for sharing this spring cottage decor with us! It’s awe-inspiring. After reading this post, I had some new ideas for my house decor

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Wonderful, Jennie! Have fun:)

  3. Hi Lora, I’m a little late, but have thoroughly enjoyed your wonderful cottage-y Spring Kitchen tour. Every photo is a feast for the eyes. Just beautiful. I think my fave is your wonderful comfy sitting area next to your kitchen. I love it all!!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thank you, Debra:) Yes, that little sitting spot gets plenty of love.

  4. Lora, I just love your kitchen home tour! There are so many fun finds to see and I am sure you enjoy them all. Also, I just heard you on the Blogging Creatives on Fire podcast – you did a great job😊 You and I have a lot in common so I wanted to pop over and say hi! Pinning this post 😊

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Cindy! I love your style, too and caught your MMSMP painted pinecones tutorial; great job! Glad you enjoyed the podcast; it was a first for me and really fun!

  5. I just loved seeing your spring home tour Lora! The ceiling colour in the kitchen really caught my eye. I love how you have included so many pretty vintage details in your home, and those florals are so lovely and charming!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks so much, Shawna! All the home tours were amazing!

  6. Lora your home looks SO pretty all decorated for spring! I love your kitchen!!!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Stacy!

  7. Lora, I just love your cottage farmhouse kitchen! It is so charming and you have it decorated beautifully! Your vintage treasures and vignettes make me smile! It is so much fun to join you on this tour. Happy Spring!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Enjoyed touring with you, too, Lynne! Thanks:)

  8. Your “fake” farmhouse is one of the cutest I’ve EVER seen. Your tour was amazing and I think I stared at each photo for several minutes trying to soak up the adorable details. Plus I think I pinned all of them as well. You’ve done such an incredible job with all the projects and it totally looks authentic. You need your own several page spread in a magazine! At our farmhouse, everyone enters through the back as well and I’ve barely touched it. It’s full of crap. Boots, horse feed, tools, the vacuum, paint cans etc. We have no storage but you’ve changed my thinking. That space is getting an overhaul. So glad to have hopped with you this week and was able to see your oh-so-fun cottage kitchen. Happy Spring Lora.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I appreciate your kind words, friend:) Yes those dumping grounds are a challenge to make functional and pretty, but so nice when you can enter with a smile!

  9. Lora your vintage cottage decor is so charming as always! I really love your picnic basket vignette–pinned! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Cecilia! I borrowed that idea from Debra at Common Ground; loved her picnic basket arrangement she did for Spring!

  10. Lora, I keep coming back to your sweet blog. Just love the farm house decorated for spring! You’ve given me so many ideas and inspired me to keep collecting those adorable ceramic planters, pretty dishes, linens, picnic baskets and even to create a cozy sitting area in my kitchen/keeping room! I’m on the hunt for just the perfect love seat or small sofa and chairs to fit the space. Thank you for sharing your home with us. Jan in MA

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks so much, Jan; glad you’ve been enjoying it here and feeling inspired!

  11. I hope you know by now how much I LOVE your beautiful home, Lora. I am in awe of all your vintage goodies. I found a vintage canister in one of your glass cabinets that looks identical to the one I have in my hope chest that was my Nana’s. It’s the exact same one and I’ve never seen another one before. I imagine sitting in that cozy spot having coffee with you and checking out all your vintage finds. Happy Spring!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I so appreciate that, Kim:) Which tin is like your Nana’s? They each are a garden’s worth of beauty; I love looking at them!

  12. I am a dish person, too! It’s so fun to see part of your pretty collection. Your built-in cabinets are one of my favorites. Thanks for sharing all your wonderful treasures with us. So nice touring with you this week!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’ve had to part with a couple sets lately; just couldn’t find places for them all! It’s good though; makes me have to decide which ones I truly love and will use:) Thank you!

  13. Lora I love seeing all of your collections displayed in your kitchen. You did a great job designing and I love the window and how it has such a pretty vibe. The cafe curtains are darling too! Pinned and so thankful to have you join me this week!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’ve loved joining in this week, Kelly! Such a talented group of kind ladies. Thanks for organizing all the details!

  14. You know I am loving all of your vintage cottage accents! Even during the farmhouse craze I have stayed more true to vintage cottage style, mixing in English, country French, and even American kitsch in with farmhouse, and you have always done an eclectic vintage- cottage mix too, which is why I enjoy your tours so much!

    Your built in cabinets are so authentic and filled with the most wonderful springy treasures.

    Wonderful tour!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, incorporating some of the trends can be fun, but sticking in our own style lane creates a unique, personal and collected home. That’s why these tours are so fun; to see everyone’s unique homes:) Thanks, Amber!

  15. Love your pretty spring farmhouse Lora! So many beautiful colorful details. Fun touring with you this week. Pinned!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, ladies!

  16. Such a pretty tour Lora. You have a pretty kitchen and pretty spring touches

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Cindy! I’ve so enjoyed all the beautifully decorated homes this week:)

  17. Too many things to comment on that I love!! Everything looks fabulous..and I really love the light above your sink.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Jennifer! Got it years ago at Restoration Hardware; it was definitely my splurge choice:)

  18. Hi Lora!

    Ok I am in love with your home!! I love all of the details. It’s so warm and charming! I love how you have kept the charm of the era. So beautiful! I pinned your outdoor tea party to my spring board to share. Thanks for letting me stop by!

    xoxo

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Aw, I appreciate your kind words, Jennifer! So happy to be touring with you today:)

  19. Lora, I adore your pretty cottage kitchen all decorated for spring. My favorite is all of the green vintage finds. And the flowers! So happy to be on this tour with you this week. Pinned!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, I love green; it’s my favorite and I use it as a neutral all year long. I went a little crazy at Trader Joe’s-I’d never been there before. Now I know how dangerous their flower dept will be for me;)

  20. Your cozy cottage style is so welcoming, Lora! I love that you have made your 60s house work for your decor style.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Well, it’s a 1900’s house that had 60’s decor…but there’s nothing left of that anymore;) Thanks for visiting, Julie!

  21. Rebecca Payne says:

    Beautiful. I love how you incorporated your antiques.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’m enjoying the collections I’ve had packed away for 2 years; it’s like reuniting with old friends:)

  22. Your sweet floral curtains are cottage-y perfect. 🥰 But wait! There’s a wonderful vintage basket tin that looks like it was made just to go with the curtains! Lovey combinations throughout the tour. Definite inspiration to celebrate the seasons in my own home!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, that basket and the curtains do coordinate nicely! And I’ve never used them together! The vintage curtains were a thrift store score and the basket I got from my mom, because she knew she could give me anything vintage and aqua and I’d be a happy girl:)

  23. I LOVE all of your vintage Spring goodness!! It’s so festive and cheery for this new season! You style shelves so beautifully!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thank you, Rachel! I love styling shelves. I used to do it for clients and then for my store. Now I just do it for myself…and the WWW!

  24. This is so pretty Lora, I love all the spring accents and vintage details. Pinned!

    Tania

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Tania! On our gray Spring days, the happy colors help!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      You’re so sweet; thank you!

  25. Lora!! I love your Spring Cottage Kitchen!! It’s so much fun and full of life!! ❤ But I’m 100% certain that if I had a Chocolate Bunny Centerpiece sitting out it would be half eaten!! Hahaha So much fun touring with you sweet friend!!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      If he were real chocolate, I’m sure he’d have an ear missing;) Thank you!

  26. Lora,
    I loved your tour. The cute seating area with the awning was precious. I loved everything about it.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      That awning wall is my favorite in the whole house:) Thank you!
