Yellow Flowers and Polka Dots

It's now spring, and there is more snow on the ground than the last days of winter : (  And possibly more to come.  Lately, I've been working from home and to distract myself from the white stuff out the window, I buy flowers.  This week I went for yellow with forsythias and I'm not sure what the other kind are.

 
 
I hung some sequiny eggs from the branches to get in the Easter spirit.  I also decorated a little broken creamer I had and use it as a pen holder.
 
(Wood Finish Marker ready for any emergencies!)
 
I got the idea from Modern Jane's blog post.  Instead of using a sharpie, I used yellow craft paint and a toothpick to put the polka dots on.  I think it looks really cute, I just wish the creamer wasn't broken.  O well, it does it's job.

Spring and Easter Time

It's almost springtime, though the lingering snow on the ground suggests otherwise.  So it was time to start decorating for Easter/spring. I am loving the longer days and the arrival of lots of tulips and daffodils at the grocery stores. And we’ve even had a couple 50 degree days, gotta love it. Here are some pictures of my springtime d├ęcor.
 
(balloons from my birthday in the back, will probably be around for all of birthday month)
 
 
 
I hung a sparkley egg from my chandelier and the beautiful azalea plant is from one of my best friend's bridal shower a couple weeks ago.  The small terra cotta pots on my mantle were also from there, they were the cutest favors.

I found these cute tiny little bunnies at a local gift store that closed during the winter. I couldn’t wait to bring them down from the attic and let them play! I love that they are mid-hop!  Happy Spring!
