I love spring. . . . I love when the weather starts to warm up . . . . I love when I can finally leave my doors and windows open . . . . I also love buying new flowers to plant . . . .
Unfortunately, I'm stuck at home today since my car is in the shop getting an inspection and new tires so I'm finding all kinds of things to work on. I started with laundry, moved onto cleaning off the desk in my kitchen . . . . . way too much for one day but I got a good start (I'll post once it's finally organized - it was one of my organization challenges I never finished). Then I got bored with house work and started playing. I started to decorate my mantle for Easter (I know, I'm behind . . . . but better late than never). I found these glass canisters at my local thrift store yesterday for 50 cents each. I bought them all! I lined them up on my mantle and filled them with grass and eggs. I like the look but it still needs something more . . . . . Thinking about wrapping them with ribbon or paper. . . . I also cleaned out my fireplace from one last fire we had a few days ago and added my candle holder with new white candles.
Then I moved onto the island in my kitchen. I started with this . . . .
Jillian found me these awesome glass candlesticks for $3 at the thrift store. I added three empty salsa jars, ribbon, and more easter grass. . . .
. . . . . and ended up with these. I just need to buy some wrapped chocolate eggs to toss inside.
Next, I'd like to get started on new curtains for my deck. I purchased this fabric and thread the other day. . . .
I think it goes well with the gerbera daisies I got to line up on the deck ledge. . . . .
I'm still working on my son's new monkey room as well. I think it's coming along nicely. Here's a sneak peak of a couple of the monkeys. I still need to add the details to their faces and paint the vines. I'm also on the hunt for monkey stuffed animals. . . .¨)
