I’m back from visiting Eryn and ready to get back to work.
I must say though, not touching my computer for four days was very liberating. We had such a good time and it was nice to not think about work for a little bit.
I arrived home to sunshine and warmer weather (sort of) so that was nice. I think you can tell by my recent posts that I’m ready for winter to be over.
Right around this time of year, I have to peruse some spring and summer inspiration just to remind me that it will be here eventually.
I just have to be patient.
Not an easy thing for me.
Here are some things that are helping me count down the days…
1. Old rake garden tool holder.
This picture is supposedly from Better Homes & Gardens but I cannot get the link to work any longer. It is pretty self-explanatory though.
2. A glossary of cherry blossoms.

This is a fun idea for a spring wedding or table setting.
3. Collection of vintage enamel pitchers

I’d love to have these to display. Even though they are old, they look so fresh.
4. Green patio chairs.

You can spray paint any outdoor chair to get this look. Turn those plastic white stackables into some colorful fun.
5. Cabbage dip bowl.

A beautiful way to serve vegies and dip.
6. Flowers ‘N’ Boots
Don’t let spring rain get you down. Embrace the season and show off those rain boots with simple flowering branches.
7. Small Space Garden Crates
If you don’t want to commit to a full size garden, or do not have the space, this is a great idea. Just plant your garden in individual crates and place them on a bench on your back porch, patio or balcony.
8. Downspout Trellis
Don’t like the look of your downspouts? Hide them with a trellis.
9. Outdoor Door Trifold

Photographer Emily Johnston Anderson captured a beautiful image while sharing an idea for those who need some architectural accents on their patio.
Perfect for hiding less than desirable parts of your home or storage areas.
10. Heather pathway.
Add some color to your path or sidewalk.
11. Herb hues color palette.

Every time I see this, it makes me want to go buy some Mod Podge, wood letters and start tearing magazine pages!
Maybe I will this year.
13. DIY Air Fresheners.

Freshen up your home with spring-infused scents. These are made with all natural ingredients – no chemicals – and essential oils.
14. Potting “shed.”

Turn an old cabinet into your go-to potting shed.
No foundation required.
15. Refresh. Relax. Enjoy.
Of course it is a beagle!
Hopefully one, or all, of these will get you in the mood for March, April & May. We aren’t too far off.
