Spring Spruce Up!

What is it about the Spring time and the desire to de-clutter, clean-out, purge and lighten our surroundings? For me, it is having 7 wonderful women staying with me for a Weekend Getaway of crafting and creating and day tripping to Savannah to get me motivated! LOL! But every year with or without company coming, I love going through the house and switching things up. I changed out the lamp shade on this lamp and chose a smaller one that matches the color of my kitchen walls. I love this soft spring green color.It then needed a little something else. I added a small hanging nest with a small egg and feather. It is just the sweetest little touch that makes this spot in my kitchen sing that it is Spring! I found these small hanging nests in a three pack from Andrea at Faded Plains. They were 3 nests for $3.00. You can't beat that price! Besides the title of this book that grabbed my attention, I really have enjoyed perusing through this book for ideas. It is wonderful at showing how to group things old and new that you love in unique and inviting ways. I recommend adding this to your collection. After spending time inside sprucing my nest, it was time to get outside to enjoy that weather!

Ahhhhhhhhhh! The sun in our faces again and the warmth that it gives. I want more!!!!

Time to play.Do you rememberthose days of getting on your bike and riding with the wind in your face? That sense of freedom and fun of going faster and faster? Shelby reminded me of that yesterday as I kept telling her to slow down!!!We have out grown the bike helmut from last summer. I must get one today. I was a wreck about her falling. She just wanted to ride and ride and go faster and faster. Last summer when she got this bike from Grammie and Grandpa, she could barely touch the pedals. Not anymore. We are not ready to take the training wheels off, yet. Maybe by the summer.Look, Mom I am flying!

I hope that you are enjoying the spring weather. Georgia is a wonderful place to be this time of year. By March 1st the flip flops and sandals are in use and we are enjoying the warm sun. I hope the weather is improving where ever you are. Enjoy!
