Spring has Sprung!

I would like to think that I decorate for every single holiday. I have a box of decorations for each one! As much  as I thrift and rearrange, you would hope so. But who am I kidding?!

I don't.

Wish I did!!

This year was different. I was at the grocery store last night and happened to stroll down the seasonal isle. ALL EASTER ITEMS WERE 50 % OFF! I got excited. I picked up just a couple things and only spent $5.50. I'm pretty sure I dreamed of how my entry way table would look when I was done.

This was only $3.99! I love the fabric, country background with the stitching. 

And this sweet little bunny was only $1.49. Perfect! 

And believe it or not, those were the only 2 things I spent money on. Everything else I had on hand.  :) 

Here is how it turned out...I LOVE IT. 

See that beautiful pane-less (is that a word?) window? Scored that baby a couple weeks ago while decorating my friend's new apartment. Her landlord is the cutest old man ever and has piles of "beautiful treasures" out back. I was in heaven! 

I got that mirror last summer at a yard sale in a set for only $7!! 

The tin oiling can came from Montana antiquing adventures :) 

The blocks that say, "Grow, Bloom, Flowers" are from a thrift store. 

The lamp has been in my living room for almost a year now....stole that from my father-in-law's "shop" in Montana. 

I just love how spring-y it is :) 

Isn't that window gorgeous?! Fits in perfect for Spring/Easter. 

On to the kitchen....I couldn't leave my hutch out! 

I didn't do much...Just wanted to a touch here and there. I made those blocks last year with my sisters and finally get to use them! 

Mr. Bunny stayed on the hutch in the kitchen. I pulled those lemons out of another fruit basket and put them in this white, antique vase. 

Do you love that green rooster plate as much as I do? It looks so "country kitchen". Found that several months back at DI for about $1. 

So, there ya have it. It's not much but at least my house doesn't feel so wintery anymore! I'm grateful that the sunshine has arrived! Let's hope it stays for a while :) more look! Just because I love it so much! :)
