Spring Done Sprung - Inside and Out

We’re in full-on sPrINg here and it’s beautiful! We’ve seen giant patches of bluebonnets coming up and I can barely contain my excitement and anticipation for the annual family war photo session.

Here’s a little of what’s going on in and out of our house right now…

DSCN0319The little chalkboard stake is another find from Canton last year. I think I need to add a pretty bow to it…DSCN0141

I give a little tute on how to make this wreath here.DSCN0316


Stay tuned… I’m going to give the cracked pot on the little table a makeover…223DSCN0320

Remember these beautiful blue and green eggs from two years ago? I store them in an egg carton in my Easter bin. The classically shaped Easter basket is from the Pottery Barn Outlet.DSCN0321


The kids love to eat lunch outside now that it’s warm and sunny all day. This little deck chair is a discarded satellite dish that my Jacob repurposed.DSCN0325

I can’t have enough white pitchers and creamers. I’m in love with having one kind of flower, in basically one color palette, in each one.210

I purchased the little nest at Home Goods in a box of 3. I gave one to a friend and kept one for myself . That leaves one for you! Watch for a giveaway soon…DSCN0334219


I changed out the berry garland on the skinny, little, worthless mantle for this floral one leftover from a wedding I did almost 9 years ago. (Same goes for the ribbon.) The little tin eggs are a Cracker Barrel find.

I decided to keep the battery operated candles out all year. At least for now. They did require a battery change since Christmas… they’ve been coming on for 5 hours each evening. What did we do before programmable candles?DSCN0137


This sweet cloche below was another Canton find at Laurie Anna’s Vintage Home booth. (And the pastry stands on the mantle above too…) The moss was an overpriced purchase from Pottery Barn and the nest and bird are from a sweet little shop in Fredericksburg, Texas called Hen Feathers. If you come visit me I’ll take you there.



The postcards I made using clipart from Hallmark card making software and some colored glitter. The paper mache (nesting) egg in the center was from Pottery Barn Outlet. The paper mache ducklings and “chocolate” eggs and bunny are other Fredericksburg finds. I’m telling you… I’m worth the visit :0)


The “Easter” basket (which gets a lot of use all year long) is another Fredericksburg find… I need to go visit there again… The birdhouse church is from Cracker Barrel. Keep your eye on their after holiday sales…DSCN0161

The flowers in the basket above and on the armoire below are more leftovers from that same long ago wedding. The blocks below are from Home Goods. You have to visit often since the merchandise changes frequently. It’s a hard life… but someone has to live it.DSCN0311

Leave me a link in the comments to pictures of your Spring décor. I’d love to see it!

I’m linking up to the parties below. WOW! There are some great ideas and inspirations… Take a bloggy walk and see what they’ve got.
