Welcome friends, I'm so glad you're here today!  If you're looking for a bit of distraction and cheerful photos or maybe some ideas to spruce up your home with all the time you're spending there these days, you're in the right spot because it's time for our It's A Colorful Life Spring Home Tour week!  Today I'm sharing my Spring Front Porch and Living Room, and later in the week I'll share the rest of my home decorated for Spring with you.

I'm thrilled to be co-hosting this tour with the impeccable Jewel from Jeweled Interiors and an amazing group of other color loving bloggers.  Check out the schedule at the end of my post and don't miss each tour for the next few days.  They're sure to be a bright, happy spot in your day and I bet you'll gather more ideas than you know what to do with!

Today we'll start on the front porch.  I live in Oklahoma and we're still a few weeks away from the danger of frost and freeze for fragile flowers.  So, when the Christmas/winter decorations come down I like to use these faux topiaries on my porch until it's warm enough for the ferns I buy for my porch every year.  They are an investment but SO worth it over time.  A bright spot of green- even faux!- cheers up the porch while the rest of the landscape wakes up for Spring.

I did however score a few $5 Lowe's clearance pots of pansies for a little bit of life that will last for a while until it's time to switch them out for Summer flowers.

I love this giant personalized ginger jar door hanger so much!  Such a nice fuss-free alternative to a wreath.

Still loving the layered door mat trend.  I have a green and white mat like this that I've used in the past, but the black has been out of stock.  They finally got more in and I snatched one up, it's perfect for any time of year.  In the meantime I had picked up a light weight cotton buffalo check mat, but it never stayed in place and stayed wet when it rained, so this one that is truly an indoor/outdoor rug is so much better!

Lastly, because I get questions every time, the door color is SW Dignity Blue.  Here's a post with more details from a previous little front porch refresh!

Now, come on inside... welcome to my Living Room!  

I don't think I purchased anything new for Spring except some fresh flowers.  If you've been here before you know that I like to shop my house and rotate things around from room to room.  It was only a matter of time before I swiped these floral pillows from my daughter's room to use in here for Spring!

I used some faux lemon stems on my mantle.  I've loved adding in some bright yellow to my home this year for the season.

Do you spy my little #photobomber?  He literally jumped up there right when I pushed the timer button on my camera!

I've had dreams of a pair of pink velvet club chairs for a few years.  The right pair finally came across on Facebook Marketplace and I had them recovered last Fall.  You can read more about them here.

Another stellar second hand find, this bamboo console table is one of my favorite pieces.

And to round out the second hand furniture talk, how about this antique chest that I picked up from my neighbor's curb on trash day?  The marble top was broken so I had a piece of wood cut to fit and did a faux marble paint technique on top.
