Spring Wreath



The ornamental pear trees that line the circular drive in the front yard are almost ready to bust out in full bloom......spring is here!  

Spring Topiary



The porch is always so dirty after winter is over and H has been busy cleaning.   Our porch is pretty large so he cleans it in sections.   As he gets a section clean,   I get to do the fun part.....decorating it for spring!

Repurposed Wicker Settee


There comes a time when you have to decide whether to put something in the trash or try to repurpose it.     I had a worn out wicker settee that was headed to the trash....but....could I breath new life into it?    Well,  maybe.

Fun Flat Spring Wreath



I may be rushing it a bit,  but the truth is.....I would be happy to have bunnies out all year long!    I packed up the Christmas decor weeks ago and  didn't decorate for winter or Valentines in the entry so I had a fresh slate this morning to begin spring decorating.

Birch Candles and Spring Tulips


I bought some birch candles in the 90% off Christmas isle at World Market about 5 weeks ago.    They have been laying on my work table in the utility room ever since I brought them home.   This morning I decided I should either put them away or use them in a new vignette....lol!

Week End Treasure Hunt


The warm weather we enjoyed on Saturday was perfect for a road trip to Amarillo Texas to check out a few yard sales and visit some of my favorite antique shops.
Before I give you the details on the treasures that I found,   I want to share the last of my Valentine decor in the kitchen.   When I saw this photo,  I realized that I hadn't shared the coffee corner in the kitchen.

New Decor in the Master Bedroom



I was in no hurry to decorate the master bedroom after all the Christmas decor had been packed away.   It has patiently sat with an unadorned mantle and an uncluttered look.  
This morning I got up and declared "today is the day"...lol!

Valentine Decor in the Hallway


I wanted to share the last section of the hallway all decked out for Valentines Day.    I am up and down this hallway all day long,   so I really enjoy having holiday decorations to look at while I'm on my way to the laundry room....bathroom....etc.

Valentine Centerpiece



Is anyone old enough to  remember a time when you could get milk in glass bottles delivered to your home by the milkman.....well,  I can....lol!   When the kids were little,   I would get a gallon of milk delivered to our porch about every other day.
