Spring in My Step

I decorated for Spring yesterday.

It's pushing it even here in Texas (considering we had a brisk 39 degree morning-it was 60 by lunchtime), but I needed a pastel friend or two.

My bulbs decided to make a surprise appearance this year. I didn't expect them to bloom again. I also didn't expect those tiny weeds to be so obvious in the picture:


My handsome bunny topiary:


And my afternoon jelly bean snack:


I decided to put these small wreaths on my chandelier (I bought them last year after Easter for 90% off!)


My kids take this sign literally every time they enter the house:


My pretend carrot garden makes me happy! So does the hidden nest:


My Mom painted these wooden eggs when I was a child. I think this makes a fun display:


And this bunny? He just makes me hungry:


Welcome to Spring!

Join The Inspired Room on Monday for more Spring Decor!

OMG--your blog is adorable! Love your spring decorating. I will "hop" over and visit your blog again soon! (Totally corny, I know)!

very cute decorating!

I have two glass containers that have candle holders suspended in them, and I also fill them with seasonal things.....never thought of jelly beans!

and I am a sucker for nests. ;)

Bridget said...

Those jelly bean candles...you're going to find that idea stolen next door! Adding jelly beans to my grocery list...NOW! :)

MommyAmy said...

I can't wait till my kids are old enough for me to decorate without worrying that things will get eaten or destroyed!

Karla said...

Your jelly beans around the candles are too cute!! I too will be copying that idea! :) Hope you don't mind!

And the eggs that your mom painted are adorable! I love it that you display them now!

You have inspired me! Even though we had snow here in Mississippi this morning! I plan to get out my spring decorations tonight after church!
Happy Spring!

Tara @ Feels like home said...

I love it! I don't know how you find the time to blog as you do and still decorate your home so nicely. :) Me, not so much.

I'm going to include this in my Things to Write Home About that I'm writing right now.

Very cute. I was just thinking about getting my spring clothes out. Here in Arkansas, it snowed yesterday, was in single digits this morning and should be 75 next Thursday. We must be prepared for everything. :) Did I mention it was 70-something LAST Thursday. Yep, shorts one day, snow boots the next.

Love your Spring decor!

These are some really cute ideas! Unfortunately, it's snowing here. We are expecting 10 inches tonight. Sigh.

srowell01 said...

It snowed in my state today, March 1! Do you think if I go ahead and decorate for Spring that it will come faster? :)

I, too, love the jelly bean idea.

momstheword said...

I love your spring decorating! I haven't done any of mine yet. I have to focus on my spring cleaning first. Love the jelly beans. I would eat those up way to fast!

Amber, That's Me! said...

I was going to say I love the jelly beans, but as I scrolled through the rest there is so much more that is too cute! Great job!

Staci said...

I could totally use a spring in my step! Now where did I put all those spring decorations I got last year on sale.......

AmyG said...

So cute! I love seeing all of your decorations. Thanks for sharing!

The BLAH BLAH BLAHger said...

The jellybeans are such a GREAT idea!!!

Kimm at Reinvented said...

Hah! That bunny looks like he's chocolate with a foil wrapper. No wonder he makes you hungry!
Love the wreaths. Great find.

Jerri Ann said...

HolyCow that is awesome....I need you to come to my house. I still have my Valentine's cling things for the windows still in the store bag, never ever made it out of the flippin' bag never mind open and put them up...I'm pathetic

Sarah @ BecomingSarah.com said...

Happy Spring!

Also, those tiny weeds? Would it make you feel better that today, my husband and father spent THREE HOURS mowing down weeds in our backyard (I swear those suckers sprouted over night) and some of them were taller than me?

My weeds could kick your weeds butts any day of the week. I'd kill for your weeds lol.

Nancy said...

that's fabulous! I'm in Texas too, and ready for spring. Not as ready as you though! I still have to trim my rose bushes.. ooops!

Ethan, Zach, and Emma's Mom said...

Daffodils! You have daffodils! Do you know what I have? SNOW! YES! SNOW! Sorry, my jealousy took over.
Your decorations are so great! It's nice to see a little big of spring these days.

ilovemy5kids said...

Spring is in the air...Yeah! I can't wait to decorate my Easter Tree. :)

Muthering Heights said...

Everything looks wonderful!

MemeGRL said...

Totally inspirational! I never would have noticed the weeds if you hadn't mentioned them. And the jellybeans are inspired! I usually do that with candy corn for Halloween. Maybe I never thought of it b/c the jellybeans are eaten much quicker! LOL But it will happen shortly here.
Thanks for the touch of spring in the middle of our snowstorm here!

Cute! I am starting to get our Spring stuff out too. I'm really looking forward to not wearing coats!

Katy said...

Fun decor, now you're making me want to be ready for spring.

Dawn said...

I love, love love the Jelly Bean Candles and this seems an appropriate thing to do with them because they do not contain chocolate so are useless for eating. But as a decorating item cannot be beat! And I'm so annoyed with myself I didn't buy some Easter Decor like your chocolate bunny at Hobby Lobby Friday when I was there. I talked myself out of it! I needed your page before today !:) Thanks for sharing!

Hillary @ The Dunham Diaries said...

Love, love, love the decor! Esp. the easter egg chandelier wreaths. I might have to copy those! It snowed here today in AL, so I'm not much in the spring spririt, yet, but hopefully VERY soon!

Suz said...

Cute decorations! I'm so ready for Spring!!! :)

Jenny@ L.O.T.s of Love said...

The jelly beans are the best! I can't think about Easter decor until St. Patrick's Day is over! Thanks for the inspiration!

Lynne said...

I love the jelly bean candles! How adorable! I agree w/ Jenny above...can't do Easter until St. Pats is over! I'm looking forward to welcoming Spring...we just got 10+ inches of snow today! Spring can't come soon enough.

JanMary said...

Love your Spring decor - I think I need a rethink about not really getting into seasonal decorating. Not something traditionally done here, but some traditions need to be broken!

(I hope you may have some St Pats decorating stuff in for my irish St Pats bloggy carnival! (hint, hint!))

Liz@Violet Posy said...

Adorable! You have such a 'Springy' house - love it! Happy Spring!

Pam said...

Fabulous ideas! I'm inspired to start decorating for Spring!

nottryingforaboy said...

You've inspired me. I'm springifying at some point this week.

Love the wreath on the chandelier idea!

Jaden Paige said...

Yay! I am so excited for spring this year... and I absolutely love that decoration with the chalkboard and the eggs your mom painted. Seriously righteous :)

Mary @ Giving Up On Perfect said...

Love the jelly bean idea - I may have to try that at my house!

Jerralea said...

I was thinking about getting out my spring runners and bunnies. I may have to add jellybean candles to the mix! Your spring items are adorable.

Joy said...

I like your easter and spring decorations. I think the the jelly beans in with the candles is very cute.

Valarie Lea said...

Oh I love that last bunny!!

Sherri S said...

Love the jelly beans in the candle holders. Too cute! ALL of the decorations are adorable. Oh yes, I am wishing for warmer weather today! The wind out was bitter cold.

Mrs. Naz of All That Naz & Becoming Me said...

Oh very very cute! And you say you aren't crafty-peshaw! (I have no idea how to spell that non word) You know, all this Springy decorating you do makes me think that you should join my little Easter Carnival next week. :-)

Lisa @ Stop and Smell the Chocolates said...

Very cute! I have to think about how I can make my house more "springy"!

Debbie @ ribbonwoodcottage.blogspot.com said...

I love the jelly beans. What a great Easter post. I love all your creative ideas...very fun and very festive.
Blessings,
Debbie

Jen said...

I'm getting mine down this weekend. I too need a little pastel in my life.

common mom said...

You certainly have a knack for decorating! I would love to be able to decorate that well . . . it's just not in my genes :-) But, thanks for some fun ideas!

Melissa @ The Inspired Room said...

Spring has definitely sprung at your house! It is looking great around there! Thanks for playing along and showing us your springy ideas!

blessings,
melissa

Beth said...

I'll cook for you if you'll decorate my house for me????
