It’s finally the first day of spring. I’m so ready to bring some light, bright spring touches into the house now that March has arrived! And with Easter just around the corner, that means some Easter decor, too. Living in a fixer upper isn’t always the most fun but I decorate where I can. Seeing the cute spring/Easter touches make me happy even if the rest of the room has dated wallpaper or ripped out walls. Here is a little peek at this year’s spring greens and Easter touches around our home. If you want to shop any of the items shown below, I’ve included thumbnails with direct links. If an item isn’t linked, it’s no longer available to purchase.
What you can’t tell from this photo is the bench is up against a patched bare sheet rock wall where I removed the brown wallpaper because I couldn’t stand the darkness anymore. Adding these fun touches makes me not notice the wall as much until we have time to finish it. I’m loving blush colored things this spring. I grabbed the blush pillow covers last weekend for $4 each, I pulled out a matching blanket scarf I already had, added an Easter basket from years ago and the sign I made from pallet wood and BOOM, spring has sprung.
I’ve had these plants for years. I usually move them outside for the summer. Last fall I forgot about them and left them out too long. I thought they were goners but I brought them in and look at them now. I wasn’t thrilled with the pots they were in so I bought these cute baskets from Home Goods and just stuck the ugly pots inside. Now I’m not sure I want to move them outside because they are so cute.
Just a touch of Easter in the kitchen along with the last hurrah cookies I made before I started Keto and can’t eat them anymore.
Everyone told me, you won’t want a dining room. It’s just a waste of space. I love my dining room! It’s one of my favorite spaces to decorate each season. And, by the way, we use our dining room all the time for friends & family get togethers. The cork holder, cake stand, bunnies & eggs are from previous years at Target. Always check the Dollar Bins at Target, they usually have some cute stuff. That’s were I got the bunnies and faux eggs last year. Looking for a mirror? I always start at Kirkland’s for mirrors and use a coupon to keep the price down. This one is from years ago but I still love it.
The dining room isn’t totally finished like I want. My Hobby Lobby vase is filled with fresh eucalyptus from Trader Joe’s. I didn’t have bunnies so I used my owl salt & pepper shakers from Target several years ago. This time I layered placemats. The jute tasseled mats are from Wal-Mart. I couldn’t find the exact ones online so I linked similar below. I still want to get the Hearth & Hand stoneware (shown below) to finish off the table. I really wanted the bunny egg cups but I refrained. And how cute are the bunny ear napkin holders?
All of these items are old. The eggs were from the Target dollar bins, the basket is from when I was young, the rocking chair is a family heirloom and the petal pillow was from Pier 1. I still think all are adorable, simple touches for spring. My house is happy now and ready for warmer spring winds blowing through the windows.
