What a beautiful day we're having today! The windows are open, there's a nice breeze that's not too cold, and the sun is shining--it's wonderful! It seems like the perfect time to show you how I decorated for Spring. It's very similar to what I did last year, but with a few changes. Every item that I used was either remade, made for cheap, something I had, or on sale. I've linked to the tutorials for each of the items if you'd like to read more about them.
Rustic stars aren't typically associated with Spring, but when I took them off, the shelf seemed plain so I decided to leave them. I was also back and forth on whether or not I wanted to paint the ($6) bird cage white and distress it. I'm leaving it for now, but it will most likely see some paint soon to brighten it up, although I think that it helps to balance the dark color of the candle and stars. I'm so indecisive on this one.

My youngest is anxious to decorate for Easter, so I'll be tweaking our Spring mantel again this year and adding a few fun things for Easter this week, then after Easter it will revert back to Spring again for awhile.
I really hope you're fortunate enough to be enjoying beautiful weather this weekend! The sunshine and fresh air has moved me to get started on some Spring cleaning, so that's what I'll be working on this week while my kids are home for Spring break. That and some much needed yard work. I love it!
Have a nice weekend!
