Spring is finally here!

Last week I decided to get out all my spring things.  We had some warm weather and I just couldn't wait to put it out.  Next week my kids are out of school for spring break and we are planning a trip south to see some friends so when we get back it will almost be Easter.  I just love the new promise of life you see everywhere.  It seems that after the snow melted my yard began to wake up from it's long winters sleep.  I love being here not knowing what will come up since this house is new to us.  It was already landscaped much to our delight.  It's almost like Christmas.  Sure, we saw the end of summer while we looked at it in August last year but Spring is a whole new season.  We have already started planning some other projects for the yard and a garden is our top priority.

My husband worked on the box for our media room.  He finished it and now is looking for another project to occupy his time.  He does like retirement though.  We just have to buy some carpet to cover it and then I will show you what it looks like.  It was very heavy though and I have some bruises and scratches to prove it. LOL!

Now onto the decorating!  I'll start with the table in my kitchen and show you the family room. This is my little paper mache' eggs I've collected over the years.  I really like the ones and I have a few but most of them are reproductions.  My bunny on the mantle I got at Hallmark several years ago and he is a favorite. 

I added the vintage, white, round table cloth found on ebay.  Then I put spring flowers in my coffee pot, some sprigs of forsynthia,  with some eggs and nest.

I'll leave you with these pictures for now and promise more later this week.  Also, I think I will be sharing my daughter's and son's room.  We have pretty much finished our decorating for them and I think some of you with children and grandchildren might enjoy seeing what we've done in there.  Enjoy the weather hope it's springy where you live!
