Holiday Decorating

Spring has Sprung

Never in a million years did I think I’d be the type to decorate my house for Spring and Easter … I mean, really? Christmas for sure, that’s normal, but Spring? What would I even use to decorate? Bunnies? Eggs? Birds nests? Well according to Target, Cost Plus World Market, and every other fabulous store in between, yes, you should decorate your house for Spring using bunnies … and eggs … and even birds nests.

I think I set one rabbitΒ out last year and hung some decoupaged eggs from the branches in the dining room, but that was pretty much it. This year’s a bit different though. I went to Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago to purchase some crafting supplies to help amp up the inventory in my newly opened Etsy shop (www.etsy.com/shop/myhouseoflove) and I walked out those doors with a cart full of Spring & Easter decor. And no crafting supplies. I totally lost my train of thought while perusing those aisles of pastel goodness. Luckily I had a gift card so no money lost. Of course I still need to purchase those crafting supplies.

Now don’t get too excited – our house looks nothing like it does for Christmas (it’ll probably take me a few years to get to that point), but we do have a little festiveness going on so I figured I’d share our Spring Decor Home Tour with you. Hope you enjoy πŸ™‚

Our Lenten Roses are in full bloom so I created a pretty display on one of the tables in our den and I may have added a little porcelain rabbit that was gifted to me in our powder room. It’s addicting once you start, you guys!

Last but not least, I’ll take you outside where I did a touch ofΒ Spring planting this past weekend (only because Home Depot didn’t have a very large selection of flowers yet). Check back after any potential frost and I’ll have lots more.

Thanks for coming along! Hope everyone has a great week ahead!

And be sure to check out my Etsy shop if you get a minute … I’m hoping to add lots more to the shop in the next few weeks. Hope you like what you see πŸ™‚
