This morning, I woke up with that peculiar ache in my nose that signals the onset of spring. Of course, someone should clue Mother Nature in because it’s still way too cold out there. Despite that, I am already thinking spring here — and am so excited to see all the pretty spring-like kitchen accessories hitting catalogues and websites.
Window shopping for seasonal room makeovers is so much fun. So when I was asked to check out a whimsical Victorian Isles Collection at World Market and share some of my favorite items, it was a perfect fit. I decided to go with a spring makeover for my favorite room — the kitchen. The fun items above would bring such a refreshing sweetness to the kitchen this spring, wouldn’t they?
All of this comes from World Market, which I visited a few years ago in Seattle and absolutely love. With an incredible selection and good prices, I would shop there all the time if there was one here in Connecticut. Here’s what I am totally crushing on in the Victorian Isles Collection (photos above, links below — L-R, top to bottom).
- Rectangular Victorian Glass Plates, set of 4
- Beechwood Bird Spreaders, set of 4
- White Deep Dish Open Baker
- Eyelet Lace Tablecloth
- Aqua Bird Ceremic Salt Cellar
- Let Them Eat Cookies Canister
- Blue Lila Wallpaper Memo Board
