Spring Is In The Air -- Part 2. What?

Didn't know there was going to be a Part 2, did ya?  Actually, I didn't know it either until I just couldn't shake that "tweaking" bug that I caught a couple of days ago.  It's still not completely out of my system, but maybe if I eat some chocolate & take a nap, I'll feel better.  Hmmm?

The first part of Part 2 took place in my kitchen.  Apparently, all of a sudden, I have a green thumb.  At least I haven't yet killed this lovely poinsettia, but was getting tired of it being in this window.  I've moved things around a bit, but basically the window has been the same since the first of the year.


Time to make a clean sweep.


Just shoppin' the house & the deco closet was really all I did.  I moved the poinsettia out to the sunroom (there are now 3 out there), brought in one of my orchids that's starting to get blooming stems,  added the little framed painted glass (bought years ago at Michael's on sale), snagged the lantern from the patio & added a candle & shells, added one of my Pier 1 bird plates, & the silver pedestal dish with faux moss.
Voila!!!


The only new items I purchased were the candle (Michael's w/40% off coupon), sea shells & the faux moss from the $Store.  This faux moss looks like a cross between chia pets & pet rocks.  Kind of weird little things, but they filled a need.



I still liked my large apothecary jar filled with the faux fruit, so I just moved it to the island & added the little raffia carrots like a tassel.  Am I clever or what?  lol!!! 



 I was kind of tired of my tiered metal basket that I was using for the real fruit, so I grabbed this little Smith & Hawkins wooden crate.  My son gave it to me several years ago filled with tulips for my b-day. Yes, those are all real & came from trees in our yard.


You might think I would have been "tweaked out" by now, but I wasn't finished yet.  The buffet needed just a few quick changes -- like adding a pic of our new little "grand" Avery.


Found a perfect spot for another one of my hurricane creations filled with little green foam beads ($Store) & a remote controlled, battery-operated candle (love these things).  I've had this little bunny (originally from Big Lots) for years.  He opens & there are several more in graduated sizes.  It's really cute to have them lined up, but too much of a temptation for the furry feline who resides here.  The baby bunny was missing for years under the china cabinet until I rearranged the dining room furniture a couple of months ago!  So I just posed the large bunny on a clear candle stick, and Abby & I can both 
live with that.

I decided to trade out a lamp that was residing here with this floral arrangement.  I didn't buy anything new for this, it was all in my decor closet just waiting to be lovely again.


I've been having fun adding just little bits of spring here and there.  Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will come again soon.
