Pink, Yellow and Orange Spring Porch

Good morning! I’m a day late, but I made it today! Did you do anything exciting this past weekend? I helped out my animal shelter at the adoption event at PetSmart on Saturday. We had two different adoption events happening and ended up with 18 dog adoptions! So happy for these furry friends!

I was finally able to get my Christmas stuff (!) off my front porch and make it a little more spring like. It’s been hard to get out to fix it up between rainy days and really cold days, but we finally had a nice weekend, so I got busy!

I always change up my chalkboard for the season.

Aren’t these the boots the cutest? These were my daughters when she was three. She wore them EVERYWHERE!! Even to church! Only when you are 3, right?

This is my favorite bunny friend. She is definitely ready for spring and for some fresh carrots.

I used to sing this song to my girls when they were small. Some of my preschoolers sing it too and it brings back such sweet memories.

I used a Dollar Store scarf and tied it around a small pillow form. This is a great simple way to bring some color to any room.

I try to fill this wicker box with flowers for each season. I usually use Dollar Store flowers out here because they tend to get faded and dirty. This way I can replace them easily and not be out too much money.

It is supposed to rain again this week, so these boots would come in handy. If I was 3. And had little feet. 🙂

Ready for Spring! Simple DIY Flower Box

Good morning! It’s time for spring break around here! Do you have plans for your break? I’m not sure what we will be doing. Haley will be home from school, so just being able to spend time with my girls is good for me. I’m sure we will plan one shopping trip to buy something for Easter, but otherwise we are free to do whatever might come up.

Today I have a simple flower box idea for spring. I found this box in my stash when I was unpacking. I believe I bought it at a thrift store, but I know they have similar ones at the craft stores. I also bought some styrofoam and flowers at the Dollar Tree. If you click on the Dollar Tree ad on the sidebar, Home on the Corner get a little compensation, but you spend no extra! I bought the rope awhile back for another project that never got done, so now I could use it for this!

I did give the box a light coat of white paint, so its just barely there. I decided I wanted the rope around the bottom to give it a little more texture. If it was around the top, it wouldn’t show because of the flowers. I like the little added touch of farmhouse or coastal the rope gives it. I added a line of hot glue and then placed the rope on top, gluing a little at a time. I ended up doing 3 rows.

I placed the styrofoam in the bottom of the box and used a little glue to keep it in place.

Lastly was the flowers. I didn’t have any moss, but it would probably be better to add it first, just to cover the styrofoam. I pushed some of the leaves towards the bottom of the stems to help cover it up. I placed the taller flowers first and then filled in around it.

I only used 6 stems, 2 of each kind. It’s just the perfect touch to add to my front porch!

My hall bathroom is complete, so hopefully I can get some pictures done and get it posted! Hope you all have a wonderful week!

My Entryway is Ready for Spring

Good morning! It’s March! And Easter is at the end of the month! I don’t like when Easter is so early. It just seems too soon and then it’s a long time until summer. Plus it’s too cold to wear a cute little summery dress for Easter. 🙂  Have you done some spring decorating? I have done a little. Mostly my entryway and living room. Lauren had a jewelry party at my home a week ago, so I spruced everything up! It’s nice to look around and see the cheerful spring colors.

I keep my same basic pieces here-my door table, the beach striped stool, and the green picnic basket. Then I change around the accessories.

I really like the soft colors of spring. It really brightens up the house when outside may be rainy and gloomy.

I added some speckled yellow and blue eggs to the lantern. I also placed some moss ones at the bottom to fill it up a bit more.

I found these cute little eggs a the 99 Cent Store. I love the turquoise and gold! By placing them under a cloche, it makes them seem more special.

See the little egg next to the bird? It’s an real bird egg. At our old house, we had a lot of trees, including a huge, old oak tree. We would find bird’s nest and eggs quite often. This one happened to survive the fall to the ground.

Of course, I had to add a bunny! It’s Easter! This one has such as sweet little face. I used a moss green blanket in the basket and it’s the perfect background for the bunny.

I am ready for spring! Not only my house, but myself too!  For your convenience, I have included some links below for similar items. Have fun decorating for spring!
