Spring Banner


April is almost here! April (at least this year) means Easter, which is my absolute favorite holiday! I had friends in town over the weekend and the weather was gorgeous, so it’s only appropriate that we celebrate with some bright spring décor!


This Spring Banner was the Silhouette store’s free shape of the week a couple of weeks ago (but you can still get it now for 50 cents!). I pulled some brights out of my cardstock stash and went to work!


Here’s the finished mantle with some bright eggs in jars and a vase. I brought in some white wrought iron pieces. Love this for spring.


Note: I changed the holes in the banner to fit my flat ribbon. The pattern uses circles (probably useful for string or twine), but I wanted an oval shape so the ribbon would lie flat.


I had leftover eggs and no candles for these candle holders, so this idea was born. I’m rather proud of it. 

My friends Jen and P and their darling E were in town over the weekend. We had a blast checking out a bunch of local spots, including something I’ve never done before – a tasting at Landry Vineyards! ’d tried several of their wines before, but I need to head back for their Redneck Red and Blueberry Merlot. Both were really great!

So many great things to love about spring! Colors! Things blooming! Warmer weather! Oh. And BASEBALL! Happy Opening Day, everyone!
