Yesterday I redecorated some of the kitchen cabinet shelves.
It feels so good to bring in spring blossom branches.
I grouped some of my chinese celadon plates together with my Syrian vases.
Last week the painters painted the inside of my kitchen cabinet niches in a more ‘verdigris’ color . I love the new color in combination with the oak shelves and celadon pottery. Don’t you?
And I brought in a new slipcovered chair.
Libeco linen of course!
A few days ago we went to visit Jan’s daughter and son-in-law and their children Alexa & Tristan. Because they live rather far from our place, we don’t see them that often. So it is always so nice to visit them to see the grandchildren growing!!! And Alexa, who is almost 3 years now, has made us some beautiful drawings!
I scanned and resized them to fit in these photoframes.
Brother and sister are hugging!
My husband and his dearest granddaughter!
Do you also feel these spring tickles?
To end this spring post, a beautiful saying :
“Spring is nature’s way of saying : let’s party!”
Hope you will all enjoy this new week!
All pictures by me.
Stunning and so beautiful! A lovely family.
I've so enjoyed the pictures today, Greet. Brother and sister are hugging….wonderful! I have some similar on my notebook: brother and brother are hugging (I have 2 boys 🙂 happy new week
Love the redesigned kitchen shelves and the framed artwork! I really enjoy children's artwork displayed in a home and you have a beautiful family.
So ready for Spring!!! The inside of the cabinets look great as does all the little seasonal touches! Framing the artwork from your grandkids is such a sweet sentiment…makes me miss the days of doing it for my kiddos.
Such great pictures..your home is so beautiful, elegant and most important, inviting….it has great karma even in pictures!! Love the soft warm woods..beautiful Greet!
And those kids…are just soooo cute and sweet!
Looks like it was a wonderful visit..always a fan of framed kids artwork, truly one of a kind, thats what makes its so special and endearing…
Love, love the new arrangement. The linen covered chair is perfect. I have gone crazy over linen. WHo am I kidding; I have always loved linen clothes, bedding, bath, furniture.
The photos of the children are adorable, Greet. Just precious. Oh how I wish they stayed this age longer.
Have a great week!
Love all your beautiful touches of spring. We don't have anything flowering quite yet – can't wait!! Of course LOVE the beautiful orange slipcover – adds a subtle element of my favorite color!! And the grandchildren are adorable – what a ray of sunshine!
Oh, what a beautiful post, my friend!
The children made me smile. So sweet!
Thank you for sharing this… so special!

I love all of your little touches of Spring. Just beautiful and doesn't it make you feel good? It's hard to imagine that there are those that don't enjoy these things as we do? Your grandchildren are absolutely adorable. I'm sure that they are very proud of their framed artwork. XOXO. Mona
Robin Williams, what a grand quote Greet..adored you letting me peak at your home & family. xxpeggybraswelldesign.com
Het ziet er prachtig uit Greet…heerlijk hè om het huis in lentesfeer te brengen!!
Lieve groet, Ingrid
Beautiful home, beautiful family! You are very blessed my friend!
Happy new week!
These images where the perfect start to my week! They warmed my heart on all levels! What a beautiful life you have created… I'm so happy for you and thanks for always sharing!
I am so ready to do some "spring" rearranging Greet! and I am thinking some painting too.
Those are sure cute grandkids! Thanks for sharing.
You have a wonderful life,
your home looks so lovely with the new paint colors and the spring blossoms…
and Tristan and Alexa are so sweet….
Congratulations on your lovely family. It's always good to keep in touch. I wonder what it says on that wall, could you translate it for us? Thanks, Greet, and have a great week!
I am so glad you got to visit your grandchildren. I know I feel so happy when I get to see mine. They bring so much joy, don't they.
This is an awesome room! Hopefully you'll also post a picture of the wall that's behind the linen chair, the one with the painted quote with beautiful calligraphy. What does it say? Who made it? From what little I can see it is a wonderful element of that room. Do you have more quotes on the same style throughout your home? Is that a trend in Belgian decor? That would be a great theme for a future post. Thanks in advance! The best to you and your lovely family.
Good Afternoon Greet,
Doesn't spring just want to make you go outside and hug a tree? The first blossoms on the trees budding out, and the first peeks of hyacinths and tulip bulbs breaking through the ground bring such a sweet smile to my face.
Such sweet children! I love how they are hugging each other. Everything they do and say is so special. Those pictures remind me of paintings that my grandson painted and the scribbles from our granddaughter that adorn our walls.
Have a wonderful week.
Pour moi personnellement, vous avez une si belle maison et un si bon goût…
The celedon is delicious. And I adore the sienna chair. The children are petty delish too. Huggable!
Spring makes my heart happy…and I too bring flowering branches indoors.
You asked me about the email subscription feature for my blog…it's up and running! Thanks for prodding me to do this.
We are having Autumn tickles and it feels great too !
I love the celadon, the chair and the grandbabies 🙂
Your renovated orangery is beautiful Greet and I love your simple but elegant flower arrangement….I’m really coveting your Syrian vases and your new linen chair, love the colors! Such beautiful Grandbabies you have, glad to hear you had such a nice weekend visiting.
What a wonderful way to greet Spring Greet! Your kids are adorable.
We are finally having Spring weather here after lots of rain and gloomy weather. A little sun really puts a spring in your step. 🙂
Love to bring Spring blooms in my house every day – so cheery! What a beautiful family you have, Greet!!
Greet, you have an eye for color, like my Sally. It's wonderful and I am always in awe! I can design and detail cabinets or a custom piece of furniture, but I will never be able to do color the way you do!
Are those crab apple blossoms I see? Ours will bloom in about 4 more weeks.
firstly….i love your style.
and the grand babies!!!!
they are absolutely yummy.
cute, cute and so sweet.
Hi Greet. I've got that "party" feeling also. Arranged apple blossom branches in vases and brought them inside…we are so far away yet so close! Adorable children (and husband!) XO Trish
Wat een leuke post, combinatie van jouw passie en je
kleine schatjes, ideaal !

Bonjour Greet !
Belle vue lumineuse de l'orangerie à travers les branches de printemps…
Je vois que le livre "Quiet living" est en bonne place !
It's been a while since I've visited, and I'm not sure why. I always enjoy viewing images from your beautiful home. Seeing the adorable children today was a lovely bonus. Your interview on the Skirted Roundtable was wonderful! I was so pleased when I saw your name on their list of special guests.
Hope the rest of your week goes well. Have a very happy spring!
Zo mooi ingericht! En die kadertjes met de tekeningen van de kinderen is zo origineel! Super mooi ! x
Greet so beautiful!
Love those sweet babies…..such joy!
love it all but the last photo… made me M E L T.

Love the child artwork, beautiful!
What adorable children! And I just love your decorating touches. Although orange is not my favorite, I love how you've used it.
Just added a bit of yellow to my own decor (kitchen curtains and some pillows in the living room) in celebration of spring. It's still chilly here in New England, but the brave daffodils are poking up, ready to bloom.
