Springified Front Door Wreath for Free

Being the thrifty decorator that I am, I prefer things that are free...don't you?
With all of the gorgeous pre-spring weather that we are having I, desperately, wanted to "springify" our front door and do it with what I had already around the house.
 So, an old frame, a chippy white grapevine wreath, a few hydrangeas and a teenie li'l basket came together to make our new wreath for FREE!

and sure I'd love to go out to my favorite place in the world, Hobby Lobby, and buy some new flowers and start from scratch, but I'd rather save for other important things.....we've got grandbaby #7 on the way just about any day!

I got lucky when I spotted this old rustic frame just sitting in my craft room. The wreath was a bit too small for the door and it needed to be just a tad bigger.

I was worried that it was going to be too small for the wreath, but the overlapping turned out to be just perfect.

I've displayed our sweet, little, love birds ( year 'round) many, many times before....
each time as cute as can be.

I love, love love it!

In case you missed it, just after Valentine's day, I re-did our bay window with a breath of spring. You can hop over and see it here.

I've been on a roll and the living room is done, so I'll be back next week to share that with you, too.

 Love, Hugs and Kisses,

and Gucci, too!

I think I have spring fever!

Winter is over in our house as soon as Valentine's day passes. That means that our kitchen window is the first area to get a fresh look of spring.

This special magnet is always hanging somewhere around for me to see. 
It's a gift, from my daughter Shaine, that always manages to be a part of the window design every spring and summer.

It's center stage for this years spring look.

Perennial candytuft wrapped in burlap will get planted in the ground outside next month. For now, we'll enjoy the early blossoms indoors.

This faux creeping jenny wreath was a $2 Goodwill steal that's gotten lots of uses all around the house.

Since we moved here these are some past looks...I'm not sure which one is my fav... will you click on the links and help me decide?

Hi ho, hi's off to re-do the mantel I will go!

 Love, Hugs and Kisses,

and Gucci, too!
