Inspiration for Spring

Are you ready for Spring to arrive? I know I sure am! We keep getting a little tease of it, temperatures were even in the mid-70's for a few days...my tulips are starting to come up...but winter isn't quite done with us yet. We got a dump of snow and the kids have been out of school all week!!

But it won't be long now.

I've been busy pinning ideas and inspiration for Spring onto my pinboard because it is so handy to have them all in one place for easy reference.

Here are a few of  my favorite ideas that I want to share with you today. Maybe the sun is shining where you are, maybe you're still buried in snow drifts...either way, grab a cuppa joe, diet coke, tea or whatever you like and join me as I share these wonderful Spring creations.

The Goodwill Gal sets an adorable table using a tiered stand made with cake tins, filling it with Easter grass and chocolate eggs. I also love her painted soup tins with flowers at each place setting...and look at the vintage glass bunny (she found it at Goodwill - a girl after my own heart!) Yes, lots of inspiration here!

Craftberry Bush has a delightful teacups mantle that I adore. From the moss and paper-whites in pots to those darling hanging teacups and saucers, it truly says "Spring is here!"

How about this take on a fun door decoration? A rusty watering can spilling over with tulips? I love it; Thanks BHG for the inspiration!

C Jane Blog has one of the cutest spring traditions I've ever seen. You plant jellybeans and grow giant lollipops! Really fun if you have little ones...not sure my teenagers would go for it, lol! But, they were young once too, and their Grandpa had them believing he had a real live M&M tree in his backyard because whenever they would come to visit, there would be mini bags of M&M's 'growing' on his tree :) Oh, it was magic at Grandpa and Gramma's house!

These might be the easiest and best looking easter eggs I've seen! Simply {kierste} shows us how using glue dots and rolling in glitter gives perfect glittered dots on easter eggs! Simply brilliant!

Sweet Something Designs shows us how she recreated the DIY cabbage bowl from Martha Stewart Living. It's the perfect little bowl to hold a pile of pretty eggs on Easter morning! And it looks so real! This is a craft that you could make once and reuse for several years.

Kimberly at Serendipity Refined, shares the sweetest DIY egg tree made from branches spray painted white and tucked into an urn. Doesn't this give us hope that spring is indeed on its way?

I hope you're feeling inspired by these Spring DIY projects. Maybe if we all start decorating for Spring early, the weather will take the hint and warm up sooner...whadya think?!
