Happy Friday Friends!!
Spring is definitely in the air! We have almost one week of the time change under our belts and I’m loving the longer days already!! We’ve gotten the kids’ bikes and scooters out and that little bit of extra sunshine seems to give everyone an extra boost!
I haven’t decorated much for spring before, but blogging seems to have changed me a lot (in good ways!) and I’ve been adding some lil’ spring touches here and there…. and planning some more, too! Can’t wait to share some more springy DIY with you soon!
Today I’d like to show you that decorating for Spring doesn’t have to break your bank account! Earlier this year I shared my DIY Coffee Table and ever since my husband built it for me, it’s been soo fun to style and create different vignettes! Flowers always add such beauty and color to a room, but if you’re like me, you might not be able to afford flowers every week. So, the next best thing…. faux flowers!!! And a trip to your local thrift store! Come along and I’ll show you my finds!
I bought three bunches of faux tulips from The Dollar Tree. I usually buy our faux flowers from Michaels or from a décor store in town, but last year I bought these same tulips in orange and got TONS of compliments on how beautiful they were! When I told one friend that they were fake, she could not believe it! Nothing says spring to me like the color yellow, so these prettys came home with me!
The DIY Tray Makeover was $1 garage sale find last year and I love it still! The distressed finish is perfect and I love how it’s large enough to hold a variety of items! Last week I had an appointment and I got sidetracked
majorly just a little bit because my favorite thrift store was just a round the corner! These two vases were exactly what I was looking for! The “clear” one is actually quite green but you can’t really tell in the picture. Who knew thrift stores had holiday displays?? Apparently they do, but I have never noticed that before! I found it on their all-things-green St. Patrick’s Day display 🙂
I just love this white milk glass vase! I’ve done a little searching online trying to find out how old it would be. My husband was surprised when I came home with it… he said I needed to go raid his mom’s collection of vases. She has lots of these! Well, good to know! (*wink*)
Don’t you think flowers make a room so happy and cheerful? And one more just because! Oh! And I just had to add a picture of these precious little ones… there’s our two little ones and my sweet lil’ nephews!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I just might be found curled up right there with a good book!
