A Springy House

I've been doing some small and inexpensive things around the house to celebrate Spring!  I'm a decorator at heart, so it is so much fun for me to change things around the house with each season.  Of course, I'm a broke decorator; so the things I change have to be cheap (or free) and in small doses. ;)

Since buying a house, I've become a huge fan of wreaths! I think they make a wonderful first impression, and can express so many seasons and holidays.

Hydrangeas are such a beautiful Spring flower.

Remember that wreaths don't have to go just on the door.  They look great hanging on mirrors and windows too!

I bought some apothecary jars awhile back, and love filling them with beautiful items.  Of course, they are set WAY back on my counter, out of reach of coasting baby hands ;)  Here are some ideas for Spring fillers:

You can buy the bags of fake fruit (apples, lemons, etc...) and fake flowers for an inexpensive price at Walmart (where nobody cares how loud my children scream) ;)

A beautiful Spring tablecloth or place mats are next on my list.  Here are some pretty ones at Pottery Barn (I'm waiting for a good sale to get some) ;)

And last, but certainly not least; I take out my vase to start filling with all the beautiful wildflowers that Madelynn loves to pick for me (and a few garden flowers too.) ;)

Have fun turning your home into a Springy one!

  1. Great ideas! I've always loved your sense of style! I have told Andy on numerous occasions that if we ever decide to really decorate, we will be calling you to help us figure out what to do! :)
