Welcome Spring!!

Well, I feel that now spring has (maybe??) arrived in Northern Michigan!! The weather reached a scorching 50 degrees yesterday and the snow is finally melting. I debated starting up the grill and cleaning my windows, but that is too much spring cleaning for our first warmer day in what seems like YEARS!! I definately got a lot done around the house and thought I'd share some pics. I pulled out some springtime decor, brighter colors and more vintage items. Away with the darker heavy winter colors. We need some cheer around here!! A long list of items to be finished around the house before summer and the garage sale season hits!! yeah, I can't wait!!

Grandma's dishes and some cute bunny napkin rings look very "spring-ish" in my kitchen china cabinet. Love all of the pink in the springtime!! The pic of the birds nest is an abandoned birdie home I found in my yard a couple of years ago and I think it may be one of my favorite spring decor items, along with my painted wooden eggs!!

I made a trip to Goodwill this weekend and got this cute teal vase for $1.99 and then headed over to the dollar store for some fake pink peonies to fill it with... not bad for 3 bucks, don't ya think??

Feeling crafty this weekend, I got to go into town ALONE and without kids!! I found this cute green canister at Goodwill for a sweet $1.99, these melamine pink bowls at target for .98 a piece!! ( I bought six of them ) and the fabrics I got at Joanne's to make some pillows for my girls bedrooms.. still working on that. This warm weather sure has me motivated and I wish the same for you!!
