We are having some beautiful spring like weather around here. And it is making me long for spring cleaning, spring flowers, spring decor, and YARD SALES. I am pumped for the yard sale season to start back up. I need a fix of second hand frugal bad! Since it's not quite time for that, I had to go digging in my closets and drawers for things to repurpose. I love that feeling of finding something you'd forgotten about and pretending like I just went shopping for something new!
These neutral candles were packed away in a drawer waiting to be cutesified with some scrapbook paper scraps. My kitchen is drowning in beige right now and needed some rich bold color to save it. I love this combination of aqua blue, apple green, chocolate brown, and red. But that's not what sold me on this paper. Look at that adorable little bird up there...isn't he precious?
I made another monogrammed frame for our family with the extra paper. I LOVE this paper! I applied the vinyl lettering directly onto the glass so that when I get tired of this paper I can switch it out for another pattern or even a scrap of fabric. This one is busy, but I like it for now. I needed some pizazz in here!
Add in a chippy white iron bird, some red pears, a little nest, and you've got the perfect touch of spring.
Everything looks better by lamp light...it does a great job hiding flaws on people and decor.
And just because I think this adorable...I had to share my 4 year old's centerpiece she insists on putting out. Last week I was working on science projects with my boys and she got into my closet full of home accessories. She put together this white candlestick with a giant pink gerbera daisy on top. When I first saw it I thought...awwwww, how cute. Then I put it back in the closet. Next thing I know it's popping up all over the house. Every time I turn around it's in a different spot. It's become quite comical and something I look forward to finding everyday! But, the Legos in the corner of the picture...not so much. They are seriously taking over my whole house. They're everywhere I look. We need a room just for them. Here's hoping and dreaming of a massive playroom addition in my near future!
