I made a bright yellow wreath to welcome spring... all done on the cheap, of course. Dollar store flowers hot glued to a grapevine wreath. It shows up pretty from the road. (I love using a hot glue gun...it brings out the inner child in me)
I put out my little Easter flag just a few days before Easter. I had forgotten that I had it; I bought it last year after the holiday from Pier One. That's the best time to buy holiday items, as long as you don't forget them or forget where you put them.
Remember the tool box from a few posts back? I found plastic fruit on sale at Wal Mart today for $5 a bag. It took 3 bags to fill it, and I'm happy with it. These fruits remind me of my grandma Butler; she had lots of faux fruit in her kitchen. My favorites were the styrofoam ones that she covered in sequins. Does anyone remember those?
And I found a cool 'new to me' toolbox at Goodwill today for $3. This one is pretty large... it measures approx. two feet long. I am going to paint it and fill with geraniums for my porch. I just love treasure hunts when I can find treasures.
Happy Spring to you!
