Today I'm delighted to be a part of the 2018 Spring Home Tours hosted by Marty of A Stroll Thru Life.  If April sent you over from House by Hoff, I'm so glad you're here!  She always has the best ideas and I love finding inspiration in her beautiful vignettes, I'm sure you enjoyed her tour.

If you're visiting for the first time today, let me introduce myself.  I'm Jennifer and I live in Edmond, Oklahoma, where my husband is a Southern Baptist minister.  We have two teenagers, a son (dimples) and a daughter (tangles).  You will quickly see that I adore bold color and mixing patterns, get excited about a great Craigslist score, and am not afraid to get my hands dirty with a DIY project.

Welcome to our home!  Although there's not a fern to be had in town yet to fill my planters, the rest of the porch got a little spruce up for Spring.

I picked up this cute bunny wreath at Hobby Lobby, removed the burlap ribbon it came with, and added ribbon more to my liking.  He's hung with a command hook and I looped a small piece of pipe cleaner through the back of the wreath to attach to the hook.

I filled my lanterns with green Spanish Moss, pillar candles (don't worry, they're battery operated!), and some decorated eggs.

If you're familiar with my style, you won't be surprised that as soon as I saw it I had to have one of these buffalo checked outdoor rugs (it comes in several colors and sizes).  I layered a coir mat over it since I can't resist an opportunity to mix and match colors and patterns.

Come on in, and join us in the Living Room!  I've been busy for the past month or so making a few major changes in this room.  Last week I shared that I painted the backs of the builtin shelves in a bamboo lattice pattern.

And I've also had my sewing machine working overtime to make new curtains across the back of the house in the living room and breakfast nook.  I used this fabric and I'm enjoying the fresh new look.  Actually, I've had some form of black and white curtains for so long that I'm not quite used to it yet but I like it!

I assembled the craziest bunch of flowers for the coffee table, and I'm completely in love with how sprawling and wild it turned out!

I can't share a seasonal tour without a new pillow or two, and these vibrant new floral pillows were just the right mix of colors for my space.

My mother-in-law made these sweet vintage hankie bunnies years ago that I put out every Spring.  She got the pattern from the March/April 1991 issue of Country Woman magazine if you're interested in trying to hunt it down.

A poinsettia in a Spring Tour?  I used these pink pretties at Christmas and they're still going strong, I couldn't bear to throw them out!  My son carried the blue and white plate back for me from Buckingham Palace earlier this year when he went to London with his school band to play in the London New Year's Day parade.  He chose wisely.  :)

I also made some new curtains for the Dining Room, and kept it pretty simple for everday with just a colorful orchid centerpiece,
