The temperatures are still a little cool around here to start setting out spring flowers, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t started thinking about what I want to plant.
I’ve recently happened upon all sorts of neat ideas for turning things into unique planters. Recycling unwanted household items by filling them with beautiful flowers is a win-win situation, in my opinion.
My grandpa gave me this cute old chair. It had a metal slat seat in it. I took the seat out and popped a planter into it. Doesn’t it look cute with this fern in it?
I want an old washtub so I can do this! Wouldn’t that be cute?
This toolbox planter is absolutely adorable.
I need a carriage now so I can plant flowers in it.
I have never thought about planting anything in a flour sifter but this is pretty cute!
I hope you all have a great week! Join us on Friday for our spring home tour.
Have you all been to your local Dollar General lately? If you haven’t, you might want to pop in. If you’re a fan of the Pioneer Woman line at Walmart, you will love their spring stock. They have some of the cutest kitchen items I’ve seen in a long time…and it’s not expensive at all!
And those are just the things I bought. I wanted waaaaay more! I thought I’d share the cuteness that I loved, but left behind (and might still go back and get).
My kids are not allowed to use glass drinking glasses for obvious reasons. They sometimes get offended that they can’t have a pretty glass like the adults. With these, they could feel like they have a fancy glass…and at $1.50 a pop, if they drop it and break it, it’s no big deal.
Any hobnail fans in the house? I love that these glasses are hobnail and I love the color.
If you like glass bottles, grab a few of these to stash on top of your cabinets. Or you could even fill one with mini Christmas lights.
These small canister jars would be great to buy and fill with candy for a small gift, or even to store small goods in your own kitchen.
This flowered butter dish is a cutie. I have a cow creamer that I’d like to put this beside.
You all know how much I love lettered signs! Here’s a pretty one for $10!
This tag frame could look cute in any room.
This bucket reminds me of enamelware.
Which item was your favorite? My favorite would definitely have to be the drinking glasses. Comment down below and tell me which item you liked best!
Spring will soon be upon us. The gray and dreary winter days will give way to sunshine and green landscapes. I thought it would be nice to share some spring quotes today. I did not make these but found them on Canva.
I think these would be great additions to your lock screen wallpaper, your computer desktop, or you can print them out on sticker paper and put them in your calendar.
1. “Spring is when you feel like whistling, even with a shoe full of slush.” -Doug Larson
2. “Despite the forecast, live like its spring.” -Lily Pulitzer
3. “Springtime is the land awakening.” -Lewis Grizzard
4. “Bloom where you are planted.”
5. “The promise of spring’s arrival is enough to get anyone through the bitter winter!” — Jen Selinsky
I hope you all enjoy these quotes! See us later this week for a spring craft and a cute project.
One of my absolute favorite holidays is approaching and I’m looking forward to it. As a Christian, I absolutely love Easter. I also really love springtime. Easter is important because it celebrates the death and resurrection of my Risen Savior Jesus Christ, but it also represents a time of renewal and rebirth.
I love crafting and creating pretty things, but even more so, I love sharing those things with others. I haven’t had much time to create anything lately, so I decided to share some of my current favorite Pin-spirations.
This old rugged cross wreath is so simple and beautiful…and best of all, it represents the true meaning of Easter. I’d hang this above my mantle or maybe on a mirror like this blogger did. I cannot wait to make this.
Our entry table boasts a simple wicker charger with a large jar, some florals, a faux birds’ nest and some colorful speckled eggs.
I absolutely love these colors together and I can’t help but smile every time I walk past this table.
There are touches of greenery everywhere and natural woods- things that remind me of spring without being too overpowering.
On our coffee table, we have a little vignette with a tray, a candle, and some greenery. I love how simple and how farmhouse-ish this is.
We also repurposed our wood trough box on our dining room table for spring. We used this thing to decorate for Christmas and winter, and it works nicely for spring too.
I can’t wait to fill in the spaces with some grapevine spheres or some greenery.
Lastly, I decorated this ledge in our dining room. I call it our “mantle” because we don’t have a real mantle. I love how realistic these faux branches are…and how cute are those little eggs in the nest?
This is definitely a low-key spring home tour. Way less elaborate than what I’ve done in the past, but I like it!
Have a great week. Join us on Friday for a roundup of farmhouse mudrooms.
