all jazzed up for Spring


it’s been unseasonably cold here lately, as we’ve been lashed with seemingly non-stop rain and wind. last weekend, i got tired of waiting for Spring to get here, and decided to dress up our front door.

instead of spending $34 on a Springtime wreath, i made a quick stop to JoAnn Fabrics, where i picked up a plain grapevine wreath for $3.99, and two bunches of pink silk hydrangeas (normally $4.99, but 40% off). $9 later, after 20 minutes clipping and sticking and rearranging, our door was ready to be shown off!

after a long day of work, it’s so cheering to come home to a pretty door. silly, but true.


in addition to prettifying things, i’ve been cleaning and organizing like a madwoman; my newest favorite things are large, stackable storage tubs. all of our winter clothes and blankets are now packed away, stacked in the closet; and i’ve also gone though my wardrobe and weeded out everything that no longer fit (thank you, 19-week belly!), or will no longer fit by the time it’s seasonable to wear them, and packed those away, too. my closet is looking quite sparse right now, as i’ve not done much shopping for maternity clothes; i’m growing quite rapidly now, feeling the baby move around every day, and definitely will not fit in the remaining clothes much longer – i think this calls for quite a shopping trip.

how are you heralding Spring? have you done any Spring cleaning?

    Your new wreath is so pretty! I will see it soon. :-)

    Good for you for cleaning out and organizing. Just when I think I’ve organized something, I look around and see the other 99% that needs to be done. :-(

    More crocuses, please, or whatever else is up and blooming. :-)
