Prepping for Spring – Bring in some green
The nice weather in Minnesota as of late has given me a bad case of spring fever. Since my garden daylilies and hostas aren’t really blooming yet, I decided to compensate by sprucing up the inside of house with some new plants and to give a facelift to some old favorites.
I replanted my jade and violets in new pots that look more spring-y than their original plain terracotta ones. They are now atop the black dresser in our entryway (sidenote – a dresser in the entryway is awesome for stashing gloves, scarves, dog leashes, etc.) giving the area a color boost. Now, I just need to convince my violets to bloom.
I got these beauties at Home Depot this weekend. The salesman assured me they would grow inside year-round. I am not sure I believe him, but they were less than a nice bouquet of flowers and I should get at least a few months of joy from them. They sit in the awkward space behind my kitchen sink in a half-price easter basket I snagged from Target.
The best part of the hydrangeas is that I can cut them and have flowers throughout the house. Remember my old dining room buffet display?
It was a little dark and fall-ish. I wanted something lighter and airy for spring.
I gathered all of the white vessels I could find in our house and filled in with some from Goodwill. I then added a couple of hydrangea and fern cuttings. Lovely!
Finally, I added a touch of spring to our bedroom window.
I picked up this little creamer a couple of months ago. I love peach lustreware, but wasn’t sure where I would use this little guy. Then I saw the tiniest succulents ever when at Home Depot. They are perfect!
Have you made any easy spring updates?
