Bringing Some Spring Into Our Home Decor

I made a few changes around the house this week.  The pear tree out front is in bloom, the bees are back in action and we've had the windows open; It's time for the winter decor to go.

In with the eggs...



and out with the pine cones.  
The eggs started as colored plastic eggs.  I painted them in neutral colors and bespeckled them (is bespeckled a word???).  I found the painted egg tutorial at Let It Shine.

This



used to look like this.

Despite my "let it snow" message on the dry erase lamp, we only had one pathetic little snow this winter.

I finally gave up the hope for any snow and decided to officially welcome Spring


And here are our favorite Easter decorations


These cute vintage bunnies were my mother-in-law's when she was a young girl in the 1950's.  I love having them around the house this time of year!

And did I mention they rattle???

Happy Spring everyone!!!  Are you ready for this warm weather?  Have you made changes around the house yet?  I'm wondering just how shameless it would be to turn the air conditioning on in March;  it has been over 80 degrees inside the house all week!

Blessings,
Jamie

  10. Love the eggs. I almost put the A/C on yesterday. My husband told me to open a window. Lol I'm loving the 80 degree weather here in NY but it's March so it's a little bizarre. Thanks for sharing at DIYbyDesign.
