A Little Touch of Spring

Winter is the season that I am always SO ready to leave behind. Here in Nebraska, winter is cold, gray and harsh. And I've lived here my entire life...that's 52 Nebraska winters...bleh.

Needless to say, spring is always a huge mood booster for me.

As far as my decor goes, though, I'm not quite ready to bust out the faux forsythia branches or bird-patterned throw pillows just yet. I have this weird quirk that makes me want to change all of my seasonal decor in one fell swoop...and not until it (at least almost) feels like the season.

But it seems like the rest of the world is forging ahead, strongly afflicted with spring fever! And I hate to be left behind...

My home is largely decorated in neutrals and black with splashes of green. So I'm continuing this theme and bringing in some spring elements like the bird, bird's nest and topiary.

I also scavenged the house for little treasures for "filler" in my vignette. The picture of my daughter, which is one of my favorites from a few years back, adds some sparkle and life. And one of my very favorite accessories is this black hand. I display it all year...it holds a special item for each season and holiday.

So here is my offering of just a little touch of spring. I hope you enjoy it.
