Who is ready

For spring?  I have gotten the spring fever so bad and I’m not really sure why, we have had a very mild but COLD winter.  At church Sunday I saw all the flowers starting to bloom. 

I saw crocus up through the ground.crocus5


And I saw daffodils already in full bloom.

One of the first reminders that SPRING really is on it’s way.  Which got me to thinking about how I can ready my home for spring.  What are some of the things you do to ready your home for the Spring season?  One of things that I have noticed for spring this year is all the bold colors.  (Have you noticed that when you have been out shopping.  Seeing all the greens, pinks, deep purples, and orange (tangerine) they are calling it. From jeweled accessories to shoes and blouses.  I think they look like HAPPY colors.  How could you ever feel “down” or “blue” wearing those colors. ) I distress, but the same is true for you home.  Now my question is this…….How can you add spring touches to your home on a budget, when you are in a rental?  or your own home.

A few things you can do, refresh a room with blooms.

Arranging white flowers in weathered watering cans (look at thrift stores and flea markets.) Tulips are a great choice, as they’re affordable and evoke a casual-yet-elegant feeling.

milk pail pots

Arrange ferns or other greenery inside milk buckets.  The contrast between the green and white is spectacular. Simple and doable.

Use bright colored table linens that shout Spring!

blue eggs

Using a touch of nature, like a birds nest with robins eggs tucked inside, atop a pedestal or under a cloche.

spring door decorA wonderful colorful arrangement to greet your visitors.

pansies-vasesPretty blue mason jars full of spring flowers.  Pansies are always a hit!

Moss BallsCreate some moss balls to put around in bowls.  

 

These are just a handful of little ideas you can do.  Feel free to share any ideas or links to ideas so that we can all make our homes more inviting to welcome Spring.

Blessings,

  Cindy

  1. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful spring pictures. You don't know how that has blessed me today. Our weather here in Iowa is gray and cold and I am so wishing for spring. Our springs take so long to come and it can really get you down. I love looking at all the beautiful pictures on the blogs.

    Blessings to you as well, Your blog is just wonderful.

  2. Dear Cindy,
    I just found myself lost in your wonderful Pintrest site. Under your "Old Fashion" Christmas section I was thrilled to see that you had re-pinned a picture of my old fashion wagon with Christmas tree in the back and our Victorian house in the background. It was from one of my blogs...iowafarmhouse....I haven't posted on that site for quite some time. You have inspired me to post more. I'm hoping to get a Pinterest site of my own going, but haven't yet. Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. Hi Cindy, How special to be seeing signs of spring so early. Here in Colorado, we are still under a blanket of snow and although many of us would love to see spring flowers, it is just too early. I think those vibrant colors liven peoples spirits in the dead of winter. Thanks for sharing.
