Styling the Seasons: March

Styling the Seasons March | Growing Spaces

March has been about a renewal of our decluttering efforts, and about finishing off all those snagging tasks to make the house finally feel more finished and a whole lot calmer. As I’ve cleared out the clutter, I’ve been able to give the things I really love more space to be displayed. Whilst tackling the mammoth job of clearing our garage, we discovered a collection of pots made by Ben’s gran, that were carefully wrapped up and stored away in a box buried deep in all our accumulated junk. I can only think that they hadn’t gone out on show when we first got them because I just couldn’t find any free space on all the already jam-packed surfaces in our home. And so they got packed away into the garage and forgotten about.

I decided to display all these beautiful ceramic pots together on my bedroom shelves. Not only does this allow us to really appreciate them (Ben’s gran had such a talent, and each piece is really stunning), but they also serves as a little reminder of how much I’ve achieved with decluttering this month. Plus they’re a great source of motivation to keep going, and to make sure our hoarding tendencies are kept in check.

    i love those pots. It looks like Ben’s Gran has quite a talent. I knew a potter in cornwall with a very similiar style, unfortunately can’t remember his name as I was only young at the time.

      She definitely had a huge talent and she produced so many pots – all of the family have some in their homes

    Those ceramics are so beautiful – you’ve really got a knack for displaying things so well – even having the old books facing out like that is a different twist I hadn’t thought of – I like it! Lovely xo

      Thanks Mel – I can’t take credit for the idea of displaying books face out as I’m sure it’s something I spotted on Pinterest, but I do really like how it looks x

    Oh my goodness, theses really are lost treasure. I think my favourite one ifs the small light blue vase and it looks so beautiful next to that blue hydrangea. Completely joyful x

      I keep changing my mind about which is my favourite. The blue of the hydrangea is so gorgeous, isn’t it?
