Come on Spring!!


I'm trying to think happy thoughts of Spring today. We are right in the middle of a nasty winter storm and they are calling for 1/2 inch of ice and 2-4 inches of ice and snow. Not going to be good here. If we loose power, we can pretty much bet it will be a week before we get it back. Praying it doesn't happen. So instead of sulking about how annoyed I am with this crazy long winter, I'm dreaming of Spring and all the pretty happy things that come along with it. My favorite seasons are Spring and Fall. I love everything about them. I've made a few small changes around the house trying to get it more springy...nothing big, but I like the changes.

 I changed up the front door hanger to this.
 When I think of Spring, I think of green, moss, burlap, and pale pastels. I had my eye on this moss topiary that I saw in a flea market booth. I finally decided to buy it. For some reason, I have a thing for moss topiary's.
 I also needed something to go above our TV. It was a big blank wall and it was driving me crazy. I didn't want anything too crazy because I didn't want too much going on seeing that our gallery wall is next to this wall. I didn't want it really busy and cluttered. I've been wanting a moss and burlap wreath and I like the look of window panes and wreaths. It reminds me of vintage, rustic, and spring. I'm happy with how it turned out. I made the wreath and bought the window pane at a garage sale. It's not in the greatest condition, but I like the way it looks old and vintage so I decided not to do anything to it.
 I also found this D at a flea market last weekend and knew it would be the perfect addition to our gallery wall. 
 I brought out my dried wildflowers and burlap mason jar. 
 I went to TJMAXX yesterday in hopes of finding some Easter decor. Easter is my most favorite holiday, but I'm sad to report that I don't have one single Easter decoration. I was hoping to find some stuff at TJ. TJMAXX is my weakness and I never leave the store without spending $50 and yesterday I left with these three dish towels. I was proud of myself and I'm so in love with these fun, bright kitchen towels. They were $10 for all three. 
 I'm also a huge sucker for stationary and dollar bins. I don't ever pay more than $1-$3 for stationary. Why would you when you have the Target and Michael's dollar bins? The notecards, stamps, and stickers are all from Michael's and the pins and pencils are from Target. 
I've already switched over all my candles to fresh, fruity, floral candles. This one is my current favorite. It's called The Smell of Spring from Aromatique. It smells amazing. You should get one NOW! 


So we will continue to stay warm inside and wait on this storm to hit. Aaron says he already has cabin fever and it's only 9:30am haha. Samson is enjoying it and hogging the entire couch, but he sure is cute! Stay warm friends and pray for warm weather.

  1. Hi Quincee, I was just in TJ Maxx the other day..lol. I love the fact that you're taking your mind off of this nasty weather by focusing on spring... great idea. I think I'll try it, because the snow is continuing to fall here in Pennsylvania, too... :(
