Spring weather has made it’s way home, and I could not be happier about that. The warmer weather just makes me feel a little more hopeful and happy…and it makes me want to bring spring indoors!
Since it is warming up, it is OK to pack away some of those cozy and warm decor items around your house. After all, who needs an afghan or warm quilt laying about when you can open the windows and let the sun shine in! Fresh air is one of my favorite things about the warmer weather. An afternoon breeze can simply make my day perfect!
I made this adorable little tray from 1″ X 3″ and 1″ X 4″ pieces of wood. It was quick and simple and I love that it helps to create a vignette on my table, or anywhere I place it.
You can use it on a dining room table, or any table in your house. I think it would be cute holding a pitcher of lemonade and glasses, along with some cookies.

Flowers are a simple and inexpensive way to add color to your home. Spring is all about color and growth and change, and I want that idea to speak in my decorating.
Old, vintage pieces can easily substitute for planters. You will need to drill some holes in the bottoms for drainage, but other than that you are ready to go.
When you are thinking “spring” think bright, fresh and happy. For me, that is what this season is all about. It is a loss to let all of the loveliness stay outdoors, don’t you think?
Cute baskets, bottles acting as flower vases, and metal accents all bring a refreshing update to your home. A little bit of color here, a bit of color there brings the sunshine of spring indoors.
Redecorating can be as simple as moving around the items you already have and adding just a couple of new ones. It’s not always necessary to go out and break the bank. In fact, I am quite prone to moving things around and calling it a re-do!
Enjoy your day as you bring spring indoors!
