Spring has sprung!

Finally spring has started to show around here; it was in the mid 60's and gorgeous today. With spring comes one of my favorite holidays, Easter. Also, my camera showed up! So I can finally do some crafts, and take pictures!

Here are a few of our Easter decorations.

A crucial part of my decor is dollar store eggs. I think I got at least 5 packs, love the dollar store.

I changed my burlap wreath by adding some of the fabulous dollar store eggs.

I tried to also add a bow, but it didn't work for me, so I took it off.

In addition to the wreath I did my take on an Easter tree, like Martha's. It is just a vase, with some sticks from the yard, moss in the bottom, and dollar store eggs. Love it though!

The last thing I did with the dollar store eggs was to make a topiary. I got a dollar store pot, some moss, Styrofoam, and I had a rod and ribbon. I covered the top part of the Styrofoam with moss, lots of glue from the glue gun, and also the dollar store eggs. Then I attached all of the parts together and tied a ribbon.

It was fun and I think it looks cute. I do wish that the moss was greener, but sometimes you have to work with what you got.

Ok, enough with the dollar store eggs.
Next up were these super cute burlap bunnies, I found via a blog link party.
I had some left over burlap from my wreath, so I had to give it a try.

Mine was slightly bigger, and it would be great as a pillow, but since burlap is messy it sits near the fireplace. Brady loves him.

Finally, I did another dish towel. It was the end of naptime, so I rushed, but it turned out ok.

Other things that are making our house feel springy...

My birthday flowers (a week old)

I think tulips are my favorite flowers

And another birthday present, this runner that my Mom got me while in Germany.

I really need to iron it, but I looove it. Wouldn't it look great with a matching dish towel? Gosh Mom! Just kidding, thanks I love it.

So that is spring in our house, and just looking around it makes me happy. What spring decor makes you happy? Happy spring everyone!
