Spring has Sprung – A Confession

Springtime is here, and if you’re like me you’re ready for some warmer weather. I can’t wait for our office move to finally be finished, so I can have some extra time to mess around in my yard. I have lots of re-planting to do and some outdoor projects that I can’t wait to get started. But…with each change of season and holiday, comes a small secret guilt I carry. I must confess: I hate decorations, of any sort, of any kind. I can’t stand ceramic Santas, stuffed Easter bunnies and you’ll never see a cornucopia on my table as a centerpiece in fall. I feel so badly about this because I’m a mother and I feel like I need to make things festive around my house during different times of the year. I’ve found the only way I can get around this horrible bah humbug challenge of mine is to decorate simply – using color. So, today is the day I’ll get out my vintage citron and grey tablecloth. I’ll bring out my aqua kitchen tea towel and replace some of the pottery on my mantle with some colorful vintage planters. I know, I’m awful. Here are some great spring accessories I’ve found for sale on Etsy, just in case there’s another horrible mother like me out there somewhere 🙂





















By the way, I’ll be having my Sunday dinner tomorrow night. I’ll be posting pics and my recipe on Monday (time permitting).

Have a great weekend!

  1. Love, love, love it!! Great finds!
    Oh, and by the way.. you know I’m the same when it comes to decorating for the holidays. My mother used to yell at me for it! Haha

    • Of course, I can’t see you having a rotating snow globe on your end table during Christmas. My parents bought me a life-sized nativity set a few years ago. It’s still in its box taking up space in my attic. Is that sacrilegious? haha

    • Thanks. I just love Etsy! Well, I’m glad you think I’m not so bah humbug after all. I guess as long as I don’t see a single strand of plastic Easter grass this week, I’ll survive 🙂 Hope you’re feeling good this weekend. Have a great Sunday.

  2. Don’t feel bad, I hate decorating. It always looks so festive and pretty when I see it in other people’s houses but I find it a huge waste of time. (I’m horrible!) These are some lovely spring picks, however… I love them alll!
