Switching to Spring Deco....

Ann mentioned that she had started switching to spring deco at home...
wondering if anyone else has?
When will you do that?

*****************************************

I haven't done anything except make the Easter Wreath for my front door and hung it today.
It's not outstanding but "will do" for this year.
  Now I'm wondering how long it will take my dh to notice it hanging there.... LOL
(really takes him a longgggg time).

I just switched from Valentines to St. Pats recently, so will stick with that until after the 17th.

Then I'll be buying new fabrics for my front porch chair cushions and throw pillows. I'll have to change my wreath maybe depending on what colors of fabrics I choose. I'll also paint my front entrance door a different color, some shade of med. green maybe leaning towards teal a tiny bit. Not sure of the exact shade yet.

Inside the house I can't do what I want to do due to the budget, so I'll probably just change my table centerpiece. Not sure if I'll do anything else.

Suzan...I hope your dh surprises you and notices the wreath right away!! :)

Will you be doing your egg trees again this year? I remember the photo of them from last year covered with snow!! I showed the photos to J as it was both pretty and sad seeing your egg trees with snow!

My neice came over the other day with some Easter Bunny stickers for our window.  They were all supposed to be for my sisters place but my neice kept saying "no no grandma grandpa" so she brought some over.  So we now have Easter stickers on our window.

Yep, I have just about finished the switch.  I put flowered curtains on the bedroom windows, pale blue cotton sheets and a quilt and pillow shams with hummingbirds and flowers on a white background. And, since it's still kind of chilly (cold!) at night, I have a green blanket at the foot of the bed to use if the quilt isn't warm enough.

Also I put lighter fabric pillows on the sofa and change the centerpiece on the kitchen table.

I do the switch on or about March 1st.

Oh Ann, that all sounds so nice and springy!  Great job, you've given me incentive to start ... I like the flowered curtains ,,, I only have the ones that hang there,, but then again they are just sheers no drapes or curtains so nothing to change (DARN!!)  

Hummingbirds,,,  I love them,, so very tiny and sweet! So powerful!

Hi D,

 Yes I plan to do the egg trees again,,, not sure when exactly... this week the weather is warmer and the snow is melting, so if I wait until Friday I won't have to wade thru the snow to decorate the trees.  I need to buy a few more plastic eggs... I like to do it ,, it 's fun and festive.

My dh did NOT see the wreath yet.  Hello, wake up dh, see the light,  notice the wreath.... etc etc....
