Forcing Spring

I'm not a very patient person at times.  I used to sneak and peak at my Christmas presents as a kid.  I learned it's better to wait.  But I don't want to wait on Spring any longer.  I want it nowwww!!!!!!  (Do you know what movie that's from?) Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
Anyway, I decided to just bring some Spring inside.  While everything outside is crispy and crunchy from the big freeze here, I can still have a little spring inside.  One thing that isn't crispy and crunchy is my hedge in front of my window.  It stays green and pretty all year long.  So I went out and trimmed some off and stuck in this cute little grape vine wreath.
I like how it looks in my bay window

I put together this little vinnette for my hutch

And put some Spring in this box my parents made and gave to me for Christmas

The mantle needed a little something.  I found this cute rabbit at Homegoods.
 I've had my eye on these little potted plants at Homegoods for awhile
I liked the little grapevine wreath so much I decided to make a bigger one for the front door.  And because I already had the grapevine, it was free.  Except for the burlap on a roll I got at walmart.  I love it, I've used it for so many things.
 Who knows how long the wreaths will stay green, but good thing I know where to get more.
 Sadly, as I was sprucing things up, hubby was cutting things down.  Those trees were so green and gorgeous before the cold snap.  I hope they come back even better than before.
Are you ready for Spring too?

I am so ready for Spring. Your house looks so cute and fresh with your green. I will be using some of your ideas. Got to get me some of that burlap ribbon! And let's see...which bush can I attack... Love the vignette and the mantel. Where did your little wooden stool on your table come from?

Yes, where did the cute stool come from. I love everything you did. I've been ready for spring ever since I took down the Christmas decorations, but snow and freezing cold has a way of putting a damper on things. Good job tho.

It was either goodwill or a yardsale, I can't remember. But I'm sure it was only $2, hahaha.

Soooo cute, you are amazing! I have to admit spring is a little scary cause that means summer, that loooong lovely summer will get here so fast! But you are getting me in the mood for some spring, love it.
