Adding a Little Spring

As I write this post it is a blizzard out my window.  We are only supposed to get an inch but it is snowing very hard. So I am focussing inside to make it look a little more like spring. I am trying to force bulbs for the first time this year. I posted a picture on instagram, you can follow along by clicking on the link. I hope they bloom! Every fall I mean to plant some but I never get around to it, so the only way I am going to get my own tulips is if I can get these to bloom. Wish me luck.

I switched my mantle around a little and added a new banner. I had so much fun making banners for my kids birthdays I needed to make one for myself. I got a Silhouette for Christmas but have not played with it much until now and now I am addicted. I can't believe how much it can do and I am sure their is a lot I am missing. I see more Silhouette projects in my future.

I made my wreath last year and was excited to pull it out again this year. I love burlap and chevron. It was super easy to make.

I added some shredded paper or basket filler to a glass jar and some speckled eggs, so fun for Easter and Spring! And the bird my son brought home from school is perfect. I love the kids clay projects.

I added some dollar store moss rocks to my cloche (actually it is a cheese board). Their are so many easy ways to add spring around the house. Now if I could figure out how to add some spring to outside that would be fantastic.

I hope you are getting some warm spring weather wherever you are. Have a great day!
