I love the theme to this Home Tour… Ringing in Spring
It reminds me of bells being rung for a special event and the arrival of spring is definitely a special event.
To begin my tour, I wanted to fill my Bread Dough bowl with the beautiful greens and purples that are now filling the garden.
I have wanted to make Lavender bud balls for a while.
Then I found these paper mache eggs at Hobby Lobby! These were large enough and would work beautifully for spring!
I used a combination of Tacky Glue and Mod Podge. I painted the egg with the glue quite thickly. Then I rolled and patted the Lavender buds on to give it full coverage. Once dried, I placed them here and there with the faux Lavender and faux mint – both green and purple.
I decided to make Moss Balls
I loved this project! Taking 3” styrofoam balls I cut sheet moss into what resembled an open faced flower; fitting it on the ball as I went. I used the tacky glue to adhere the moss to the ball – stretching and pressing to make sure it was completely covered. I could have made a whole lot more of these – they were quite fun and easy!
To give a punch of purple in the center of the Bread Dough bowl decor –
I set in an African Violet. It brought all the natural greenery and the faux greenery together.
My sweet bunnies found a new home
along with a pitcher full of spring flowers on the chest by the door.
The Bunnies were residing on the Dining Table –
one of the first places I decorated for spring.
The Daffodils and Forsythia vignette was the first.
This year the spring bulbs are performing beautifully – I’m looking forward to what will come next!
Then while doing some spring cleaning…
I made this clock.
well, that was a change I was reluctant to make, until I realized all I needed to do was to add green to brighten the look that I already loved.
I loved the look of a Preserved Potted Hydrangea
So I took a couple glazed pots and transformed them with Gesso, Plaster of Paris and some touches of greige.
In the kitchen…a Redbud Vignette.
On the Front Porch…
I was inspired by the beautiful greens of spring. I found this fantastic green burlap ribbon and painted the ‘R’ a Jubilant Green.
On my desk in the kitchen…
I placed these two beautiful blue vases I recently found and filled them with Forsythia branches. I love how the two brilliant colors compliment.
A Spring Lunch…
Spring has only just begun…
And in the Home.
