Freshen Up Friday

During this week of all our wintry weather, I got an email from a store in our area ~ Gracious Designs. They were inviting customers to their store so they might turn their home and thoughts from winter to spring.  My thoughts are definitely there!  How about yours?

I guess it’s no surprise that we’re all anxious for some sunshine, warm temperatures, and flowers!

Even my chalkboard and mantle have spring fever!
I drew this the day before we got six more inches of snow!



As I suggested earlier this week, we can still think about spring, even if it will be a while before it arrives!  I went to my Pinterest board for a little inspiritation for the inside of my house.  I am hoping to make this adorable wreath for my Apricot-colored front door…


 How cute is that?!

I’m also planning on doing this little craft from Better Homes and Gardens…

Use paint chips to create cute Easter art! See more Easter crafts that are perfect for kids: http://www.bhg.com/holidays/easter/crafts/easter-crafts-for-all-ages/?socsrc=bhgpin022313paintchipeggs=2

You use paint strips from the hardware store to make the eggs.  I’ll be shopping for paint for my dining room, so I’ll use the colors I find for it, then it will also blend into the room’s decor!  Ahhh, I can’t wait!

So along with my longing for spring, my shopping list is also growing.  But when spring arrives, I’ll have several adorable projects under my belt!

What projects are you working on while you’re waiting for spring to arrive?

Stay refreshed!  The best way to do that is to attend a Bible-preaching church on Sunday!

With prayers for a wonderful weekend,

  1. At the moment I am working on a birth sampler for my granddaughter who will arrive around May 12th. My birthday is May 17 so I look forward to sharing a birthday month with her! Like you, I am ready to decorate for spring and I just might do that next week!!


  2. Love the wreath idea and your chalkboard! Still feet and feet of snow here. I hope to decorate my hutch for “early spring” today, which generally means a few St. Patrick’s Day cards and some green dishes — and usually a shelf devoted to a maple sugaring display.
