Last Monday I woke up to 3” of snow on the ground, and it continued to fall all day. I despaired of ever seeing spring! By Thursday it was nearly 80 degrees, and although Friday was cool and rainy, that one warm day was enough to put the forsythia and daffodils in bloom. I am cautiously optimistic that we have at last turned the corner, just in time for the first official day of spring! Hurray!
In light of that happy news, this weekend I finally started putting out a bit of spring décor.
A few forsythia branches add a touch of sunshine to the family room.
We planted some forsythia bushes in our yard last year, but they are still too small to cut off any branches. I found these faux-sythia at the thrift store several months ago, and I think they are particularly good-looking for being fake.
My little nest of eggs has one real robin’s egg shell that I found last spring.
A couple of weeks ago I showed you some pretty spring wreaths, one of which was this dogwood wreath.
Using it as my inspiration, I gave my grapevine wreath yet another makeover with a $10 bunch of dogwood from Michaels (it was 50% off so I only paid $5). This time I used floral wire instead of hot glue so it will be super easy to change it again next time I want to.
Happy Spring, everyone!
