I can feeeeeeel it! Spring is coming! It might not be exactly warm yet, but we put away our space heaters and for that I am truly thankful. I love the thaw of spring when you can start to see things budding and little green dots poking up from under the ground. It means that warmer things are coming and always puts me in the brightest mood. I invariably jump the gun and want to take out all of my shorts and tank tops and get into full summer mode, but this year I’m practicing patience. The house needed a tiny decor refresh just to lighten things up a bit, so if yours needs the same, just tackle this two-minute-or-less idea and you’ll be feeling all kinds of springy.
I grabbed a couple of cool little glass containers from Michaels — you should check their home decor aisles right now because they have some really fun stuff that I haven’t ever seen there before! I marched out to the alley behind our house and found the first flowering tree I could, and cut off a couple of small branches (luckily it was our tree, but you should probably ask first if you decide to go stealing your neighbor’s blossoms). I popped those branches in these geometric glass and gold containers and yayyyyyy instant spring! Right now they’re on our little traveling yellow bench, brightening things up for us. I think I’ll have to put them up higher sometime soon, though, because Henry has discovered them and is fascinated with the flowers, which he confidently calls “fha-yas.” He’s pretty positive he’s saying it right.
I never used to be into flowering branches instead of actual flowers, but these days I actually love it! It’s easy, fast, and free if you’ve got a tree (which is maybe the best part). Hope you try this one out and that spring is making its way to your neck of the woods! To see lots more spring decor ideas, check out what the rest of the Michaels Makers are up to right here! xoxo
