Spring Days & Birds are Chirping...finally

I am one of those people
who is never really convinced it's Spring 
until she sees that first robin.

I saw one this past week and
along with it, came Spring!
Finally.
It was such a perfect week, too.
Warmer temperatures & sunny skies...
finally.

Spring is always a busy time for us.
Between end of school year activities,
baseball games & now even
touring colleges on weekends, 
I haven't been around as much as I would like.  

But the birds are chirping
and that makes me sooo happy!




I had a little fun here in the dining room.
I plan to enjoy Spring this year instead of hurrying it along...
even if my calendar is filling up quickly.



I hope you are enjoying Spring to the fullest as well.
Have a great day!

Spring Mantel 2015

Hello friends!

♥♥♥

I would love to share my Spring mantel 
with you today.

Welcome...come take a look...


I kept things very simple.

It all started with this sign that I made a few years ago.


The sign was my spin on a Pottery Barn sign.
You can read about that right here.

I added a couple of cute birds from Joann Fabrics.


I filled two matching white pitchers with yellow Spring blooms.
I find there are never enough white pitchers in my life!

 I used the white lanterns that I purchased at Kirklands 
once again just because they are so versatile and 
really fill in the space of this large mantel easily.


I don't know if you've noticed, but
I've always had an empty space to one side of my fireplace.

Well...
not any more anyway!


I did a little IKEA shopping on Friday.
This wicker chair came home with me, along
with a lot of other goodies!
♥♥♥

Happy Spring to you!

Spring Living Room

We are still desperately waiting for Spring around here.
It seems Mother Nature is playing tricks on us, 
but at least my living room is ready for the big day.

I took the neutral basics of my living room
and accented with yellow & green
for a pretty Spring palette.



Some pillows I made, some I bought.


I've had this bunny for a few years now.
I love him!


The shelves of my entertainment center
got filled with Spring & Easter goodies.


Thanks for popping in today.
I'll have a separate post up for my mantel soon.

Have a super day!
