This post has been in the making for weeks. Like, a draft of this has literally been sitting in front of my face, but I never actually published. So here it is: a post about getting our spring on a month after we got our spring on. Yep, we were all about pulling out springy decor when our inlaws visited 4 weeks ago.
My papery eggs ended up in a bowl containing pinecones and other earthy nonsense. I perched a few birds next to the bowl (PS Kathy Gifford TOTALLY has these in her house.) (PPS I haven’t figured out if that is awesome or not, given her mix of green plaid & yellow/pink florals.)
Speaking of birds, we also got out the sweet bird house that our niece and nephew made us for Christmas. I’m looking forward to hanging it in the tree outside our dining room window… you know, after I’m done staring at it on the mantle.
I also want to mention that we’ve got an Easter tree. I picked up colorful wooden eggs from World Market months ago, and hung them on branches that are stuck in a metal bucket.
And you know that I got eye rolls from my darling husband upon finishing. He was all, Easter tree whaat? I assured him that it was perfectly normal to decorate dead branches with painted bits of wood and string. Check it:
Yep, that’s little sister and I circa 1988. It’s important to note here that I loved those turquoise earrings. Also, it’s quite possible that my parents were as frugal with the heat as I am now given that I’m clearly wearing a fleece sweatshirt OVER a sweater. In SPRING. I’m going to remember this next time they suggest that the temperature in my house is a bit cool for their liking.
You know that awesome 80s photo is like the only reason I went through with this post. I hope you all love it.
When I purchased the wood eggs for the Easter tree, I also had to pick up a pack of these stupidly ridiculous little pipecleaner chicks. I don’t know why, but I love them.
And that’s about it for my spring decor. Pretty low key, but then again, it’s been a busy spring. How about you guys? Did you decorate for spring? Anyone else into the Easter tree thing (or are you rolling your eyes at me like JT?)? I know I’ve seen Janmary’s sweet tree… Anyone else?!
And while we’re at it: anyone have great tips for summer-type decor to pull out whenever I get around to taking down the spring-y stuff? I think that the Easter tree has to go soon since Easter was a month ago… but seeing as we’ve still got frost advisories for this evening, it doesn’t seem like a good time to celebrate summer either…
