Signs of Spring


It's been halting, but signs of spring are popping up around our home and yard.  Of course, I had to make a new banner for my wreath, and a matching one for the mantle.




I also decided I needed something extra for the couch. I made a this fun pillow cover, inspired by Corey's pillow.  I used my finished edge for the circles.


I was excited to discover the previous home owner planted some bulbs in the front yard!


I wanted to bring a little of the feeling of outdoors in.  So with some of the left over crepe paper from our rainbows and my hot glue gun, I added some little flowers to the branches in my vase (also on the mantle).


My poor camera struggled to get a good photo of the mantle, but here it is:


Hoping this weekend is filled with the promise of spring where you live.

The wreath is so sweet! Here nobody hangs wreaths on their door except for christmas time. I wish it didn't look weird if I made one for my door!
The circle pillow is so original. I love it!

Loving spring's promise at your home.

The yellow tissue paper on your branches is perfect. I think I love yellow most in the spring.

Sometimes it is the little things. The branches look like forsythia and they really light up that space.
