Happy First Day of Spring

Easter and spring always gets me in the mood to make a couple of small changes to freshen up my life.  After doing so much at Christmas time as far as decorating, I get a little burnt out on getting the house all cute again until Easter time.  I am ready for spring blooms and green grass and Easter morning!

Here are the first signs of Spring at my house:

1. My Dining Room Table.  My mom hand painted these little bunnies when I was a little girl.  I just did something really simple to look festive but not too much since we will be away for Easter.  A lavender bundle from our garden is tucked in between them.  I used a cream linen table cloth that has some simple stitching around the hem and round rattan place mats.  A shabby chic napkin looks so cute with my grandmother's little flower porcelain napkin rings.

2. Switching Purses.  I love this little yellow straw bag.  My mom didn't want it anymore and thought it was just what I needed to have a little sunshine on my shoulder.  And you all know I LOVE yellow!

3. Front Door Wreath.  I love wreaths.  It is the easiest thing to use to have an instant makeover on your home.  I made this one years ago with my MOPS moms.

4. Spring Bulbs.  I love spotting the first green shoots of spring bulbs.  There is just something about Lent and Easter and rebirth and spring bulbs!  I just love this time of year.

Happy Spring to Everyone!  
Have a blessed Holy Week to you all.
