I’m Ready for Spring, Really Ready

I am ready for Spring.  In Florida, we have a very tiny window of opportunity where we can open our windows and celebrate the glorious weather before the heat and humidity settle in.  We call it….spring.  If you blink, you miss it.  But however many days we have, 4 days or 4 weeks, I love it.  Windows open, flowers starting to bloom, grass turning green, and a cup of tea on the porch, these are a few of my favorite things!  I wanted to get the house ‘spring ready’ without over doing like I normally do.  My motto is “Bigger is better” but then that mess has to be put back in the box.  The more I set out, the more I have to put back in the boxes.  So I knew I needed a new motto, “Keep it simple, Jody, keep it simple.”  There has been a lot going on in Sheaffer home the last couple of months and I needed to stick to my new motto.

I love tiered trays, no secret there.  Like I have stated before, I just keep cramming things in until I get it looking the way I like, or until I smile.  Colored jars, flowers, greenery, birds, whatever I could find went in.  I had never done a green and white tray before and I must say, I’m diggin’ it.

I set this monster on my entry hall table.  It weighs…a …ton.

Ok, last view. I was just so pleased with it I wanted you to see all of it!

Across from the entry hall table I put two little bunnies out to great guests.

There are the bunnies! I tied the green and white theme to the three tiered tray that is directly across on the table.

This little cutie is on my kitchen counter. You can see Edna, my beloved oven trying to get into the picture.

Simple coffee table tray. I love pink. I would live in a pink house if Sir Struesel could stand it.

I had shared this tray earlier.  It sits on the end of my kitchen counter.  You can read about it here.

This cart can be found on the same post.

 

I kept to my new motto, “Keep it simple, Jody, keep it simple.”  I set out just enough to make the house ‘spring ready.’ Very little Easter decor as it comes so early this year.  The rest I will enjoy until summer.  If you are putting an arrangement together, do like I do, just keep cramming it in there until you get it like you want….or until you smile!

 

Love ya, 

Jody and Edna
