Spring Is In The Air!

Spring is in the air here in Arkansas! I have been in the mood to freshen things up around here. I'm adding flowers, butterflies, nests, and birds throughout the living room, dining room and kitchen. I'm loving the bright and cheery colors!

 I found the birhouses and cage in in Dallas and dressed the cage up with a butterfly swag. I also added a bird and nest inside.
 

I found the green grass balls here in town at a local gift shop. I thought they were unique.
 
 
This is a vignette in my entryway with rabbits, birds, eggs and an arrangment I made in acrylic water.  

I made this arrangement on my dining room table and added the butterfly lanterns on each side.  I am really loving baskets and the texture they add!

Of course I had to make a colorful wreath for my front door! You can definitely see this from the road and maybe even from space! lol...
 The wreath has all of the colors of this pretty flag. I am also going to plant flowers in these bright colors. You sure won't miss my house when you drive by!
 
 
 
I sure hope it's warming up in your neck of the woods! Happy spring!!
