Spring Decor Essentials

Does spring fever have a grip on anyone else? You know, that itch to go out and start digging in the dirt even though you know full well that the ground is probably still hard as a rock and that there is still lots of time left for the snow to fly!  It makes me want to draw garden blueprints and buy every flower in sight at the grocery store to liven up the last days of winter while I impatiently (insert me tapping my foot) wait for official season for digging in the dirt to arrive!

My case of spring fever is at an all time high this year because we have had waves of unusually warm temperatures here in the heartland. When you are out cleaning up the yard in t-shirts in February, and bulbs that shouldn’t make an appearance for another month are already standing tall, it makes it really hard to remember that is still winter! While it may be way too early to start breaking out the gardening tools, it is the absolute perfect time to peruse your spring decor for gaps that you can start looking to fill in preparation for the calendar to announce the official start of the spring season!


Stockpile these spring decor essentials now to transition your home from winter cocooning into the season of color and re-emerging life.

Spring Decor! Bring It On!

Let me guess.  You don’t think you have time in your schedule to change out your decor from season to season.  You may have even resolved in your mind that you are one of those people who are destined to drool over magazine layouts and Pinterest ideas, but not the kind that will ever live in a home that looks like the pictures.  Guess what!  I don’t believe anyone really lives in rooms that look like the pictures all the time.  However, with just a bit of advance planning, and a few minor adjustments, you can transform your rooms with a little spring decor in no time at all.  For instance, now that Easter is over does that mean that you have to put away all of your bunnies? No way!!!
