Michigan isn’t getting a whole lot “springier” right now, so anxious people like myself must take matters into our own hands. Here are a few signs of the new season “posted” around my home. Many of them sprung up with the help of my mom and sister while they visited.
I bought a pair of the above wreath (for two front doors) at a store going out of business. The wreaths looked a little bare, so I bought two framed bird pictures at T.J. Maxx for $4.99 each to hang in the center. This reminds me of something my decorating idol, Mary Carol Garrity of Nell Hill’s, would do.
My $20 wire “tree” on the front porch (purchased at another store going out of business) holds some moss and a few sets of large plastic eggs from the local dollar store.
This bunny — another T.J. Maxx find for less than $7 — greets folks on the entryway table.
Another sign of spring in the entryway– a Joann’s egg purchased by my mom at 50% off. Happy Easter to me!
I was so excited to find this lovely tray for about $12 (maybe less?) at Marshall’s. It ties my birds and bunnies together in my living room.
Bunnies from Hobby Lobby flank a vintage postcard standing in an antique metal frog inside a Michael’s lantern. Oops! I need more moss in one of my candle holders (another Mary Carol move).
I have another frog on my side table holding a copy of a vintage postcard that arrived from With a French Accent, a shop in Liberty, MO.
Well, spring weather cannot come fast enough. A lingering pile of snow in my front yard reminds me of the long, hard winter we’ve had on Michigan’s west shore. A few bunnies and bits of spring nature decor make the long transition more bearable!
