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!

Collect

I’ve been thrifting for a long time and over the years I’ve picked up some really great pieces, but I’ve never started a collection.  Seeing amazing displays like the ones below really inspires me to start one.
