With the chilly weather we’ve had lately it’s been difficult finding the motivation to break out some Spring color in my home. Just last week, we had a winter storm, freezing rain followed by several inches of snow. The one good thing about a Spring snowstorm in April is the nastiness is usually short-lived and within a couple of days, temperatures rise and the snow melts away. I’m anxious for the “spring green” to return though. Everything is still so brown and the trees still bare. It will come, but it sure seems to be slow in getting here.
I thought yesterday maybe a bit of inspir-shopping might get me motivated to start thinking Spring. While browsing around one of my favorite home-decor stores, I saw this wicker basket hanging on a doorknob and picked it up. My original idea was to fill it with spring flowers and hang it on my front door. But, there isn’t enough space between the steel front door and the glass storm door for it to hang, so that was a no-go. I had already brought some bright orange into my dining room, so I decided to fill it and try it in there.
I stuffed it with these bright orange tulips. I love this color with green.
Not a bad find at $19.95 and I already had the tulips, so for very little, I added a little Spring indoors even though it’s not very spring-like outdoors. I hope we see no more snow but only April showers so things will green up very soon. Hope it’s warm and sunny where you are!
