There is not another season that we get a “fever”. You don’t get “winter fever” or “summer fever”. Okay, I know a few people down South that could possible get “fall fever” but really “Spring Fever” is just so contagious!!! A few warm sunny days in a row and even the grass is greener and buds are showing and the robins are all over my yard and I’m driving slowly in front of the nursery to see what they are putting out and I dare not stop because it’s waaay too early.
But we can and should bring Spring inside.
I decorated the dining room table and side board to get it all ready for Spring and Easter. I brought in sprigs of quince and hung little ornaments from the branches.
I made this cute little banner just with string and old music sheet, letter stamps and a rabbit punch. It turned out really cute and took me less than 30 minutes to make. It would look cute across a mirror or frame too.
I gathered some favorites and put inside my old birdcage.
On the sideboard I strung some vintage postcards along the mirror. I love that you can see the reflection of the beautiful penmanship of the sender on the back. I love old postcards. They are beautiful, witty and charming.
I tried something new dyeing my Easter eggs this year, first I put them up after boiling before dyeing (Jack, our lab, ate 20 eggs, shells and all last year). He spent 2 days outside after that. Phew!
I saw this idea on PInterest. You wrap the eggs in lace fabric or in cheese cloth & tie up and then dye. After you dye them, dry them with paper towels before taking off the material. I dyed mine in coffee to get a natural look. I think they turned out great.
It doesn’t take much time or effort to make your table look festive and make your home special for your family.
My cats enjoyed it so much they knocked over the branches swatting at the ornaments and the water made a ring on my freshly pressed “estate find” $7.50 linen tablecloth. We will have to live with it. Not re-ironing that!
I hope Spring is wonderful where you are or will be soon. We have had several glorious days of Spring over the last 2 weeks. I will leave you with a picture I took this morning with my phone.
She grows beside our driveway and everyday she looks even prettier and the sky even bluer.
Thank you for reading.
