DECORATING FOR SPRING


We've returned from our Spring Break road trip but are still enjoying a few more care-free schedule-free days at home this week.  It's been fantastic!

For whatever reason, it's taken me this long to finally get my house totally put back together after Christmas.  Just sharing some photos today...   The Entry is pretty much back to normal with the clam shell orchid arrangement.



I did a simple winter mantle in January, but added a bit more to it, including my faux orchid that you saw yesterday.


I won this custom Ramsign piece (our wedding year) from a giveaway at Vintage Gwen a while back.  I'm planning to use it in my bedroom but really like it hanging out on our mantle for now.



I definitely like kelly green accents, and added a few more pops of the color.  You already saw my new green and greek key trim pillows:


Here I painted an old tray to carry the color across the room:



And you know I brought the green into our Breakfast Nook with a fresh coat of paint on my lanterns:


The dining room has plenty of green, and like I told you on Monday, I struggle with what to keep on my tables.  When all else fails, throw some things on a tray and call it good!


Well, I guess I got everything done just in time, since today is the official first day of Spring!  I'm sure that we all agree it can't come fast enough this year.  I'm going to enjoy my kids for their last days off, but I'll see you on Monday for a fun Spring collaborative post with some of my favorite blog friends!
