Think Spring!

Spring is right around the corner, and if you ask me, it’s not to early to start adding some freshness to your spaces. After being surrounded by the dullness that is winter, it always makes me feel a bit lighter to do some cleaning, and sprucing in preparation for the pleasant weather that will be here before you know it. Start with the front door to welcome the season with some flowers and color.

Wreaths and fresh flowers are the normal go to.


I found this lovely available on An Extraordinary Gift.

Grandin Road offers this metal wreath hanger that’s almost prettier than the wreath.

But you don’t have to confine yourself to the ordinary.

Consider using a metal container filled with something fun.


The Nested Sanctuary  sells great containers, like the one above,

for you to fill with your heart’s desire.



Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box either.

Look for rubber boots at second hand shops or the Goodwill, and turn them into vases.

Here are a few fun things I found when I searched for “spring decor”.

There are plenty of on-line tutorials to create your own spring art.  I found instructions for this burlap, bird print at Honey Bear Lane.

Create this display with items available at The Nested Sanctuary.


I found this cheery pillow on Grandin Road

Cloches filled with spring items, make great table top vignettes.  Affordable cloches are available at Pier One, or World Market.

This chalkboard is available from Shop On A Lark on EtsyIf you like a more shabby chic look, fill an old milk bottle crate                       with containers for fresh flowers.

Don’t be afraid to experiment.  Just adding something green will make                                                      your space feel fresher.
