I smell Spring & Easter in the air!

Centsational Girl is having a little Easter party today.  I'm linking up over there.

So even though I already posted about my Easter mantel, I thought I'd show you a few other things I've been doing around here to brighten up for Spring.

But first, here's another looksy at my Easter mantel, which I've finessed a bit since my last mantel post.

Sticking with the robin's egg blue theme, here's a few of the other Easter touches you can find in my main living area.

Couldn't resist showing you my favorite outdoor Spring prop!
Now that it's starting to look more like Spring outside (can you believe that our snow is STILL melting - ack!), I decided to brighten up my front porch.

My twin boys are super cute, but unfortunately, they don't stay still long enough to be good permanent decorations, so I decided to add some other touches too, haha.

I started with a few little pops of yellow.

I'm not that much of a yellow girl to tell you the truth.  But I've been stuck in a color rut (yup, turquoise!) and wanted to branch out a bit. Like my Spring pun? "Branch" out.  Get it?  OK, moving on!

I've also added a few whimsical touches here and there around the house for the kiddies, like this chubby little chick.  Just love him!

And here's a few little Spring and Easter touches in my 6-year old daughter's room. Her room is limey green and pink,so these sweet little bunnies and feather wreath match perfectly.  In fact, I may keep those bunnies out all year.

And, these were her very first rubber boots when she was 18 months old.  When we were cleaning out the basement a few months ago I discovered them in a bin of her old clothes, and decided that they were too precious to throw out or give away.  (I'm sentimental like that!) So here they sit, filled with bright pink gerber daisies, on her nightstand.  A perfect little Spring decoration.

If you're new here, I hope you'll come back again!

Until next time, happy {Spring} decorating!

I love your pics. I have been trying to figure out what to put above my china cabinet (mine looks similar but in black). I am so on the hunt for baskets now. Thanks!
