Little Hallway Changes

Hi Everyone,
I made some changes in the little hallway
that leads to our bedroom.

~ this is how it looked for a long time ~

~ and this is how it looks now ~

I found this plate at a yard sale a long time ago and I love it.

I love it even with its little imperfections.
But I had never really found a good spot for it.

With the little bit of yellow in it, I thought it might
look good here with the yellow of this little table.

Then I just added some flowers in pretty jars.

I found the jars at Joann Fabrics and thought they were pretty
with the design on the front.
They were very inexpensive ~ $3 for the small one, and $4 for the larger one.
(They came with lids also.)

Doesn't it look kind of sweet?

A simple little change to freshen up this spot
for spring and summer.

I always appreciate your visits so much ~ 
you make this whole blogging thing so worthwhile!!


  1. This looks great, a little change is always a good thing. It is a super summer look, the flowers are perfect in the canning jars. I found you at the Cozy Home Scenes party.

  2. It most certainly DOES look sweet, JoAnne!

    Very nice change-up.

    Isn't it nice to refresh things every once in a while?

    You know a small lace or crocheted dresser runner scarf would be pretty there too, to give some texture to it.

    Well done, quite lovely.

  3. I also love your pretty floral plate, JoAnne. When I find a plate with pretty flowers I feel that I must have it. Thank you for sharing your hallway all freshened up for spring. It's nice to have you at Your Cozy Home Party.-------- Shannon

  4. Very simple and sweet, JoAnne! The plate is so pretty and I love the jars~~~have to look for those!


  5. I love the new look you created! Those jars are really cute too and you can't beat the price. Where did you get the flowers? I just love the little areas you create. You really are talented JoAnne!
