Bring Spring Indoors

Are you ready for Spring like I am? I am so ready!! If you have been reading my blog since I started it back in August you will know that I was so sad when summer was over. I'm not much of a winter person. I LOVE spring & summer and very happy to see it on it's way!!

The forsythia bushes,dogwood trees,cherry blossom trees, bradford pear trees, flowering quince, and pussy willows are all sprouting forth new life (blossoms) I just love it!!

Bring some of that spring indoors and make a great decor statement in your home.


These are forsythia branches



This is how the forsythia bush looks...it can get huge!

This is a stunning cherry blossom tree


This is suppose to be dogwood branches but they look yellow to me so not sure if that is correct, but either way it's very pretty!

A row of pink & white dogwood trees...gorgeous!! I wish this was my driveway to my house!

These are Pussy Willow Branches
...this is my vase in my kitchen with faux pussy willows and some burgundy feathery branches that I got from Pier One...I think I'll remove the burgundy for spring and summer and get some more pussy willows.

Now go out and find you some blooming branches (real or faux), put them in a vase or urn and Enjoy Spring Indoors!!

I love the look of spring! It's not that spring here yet, but I will be on the look out- so I can cut my own branches and have some of them in vases to enjoy!
