As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Spring Is Springing In The House

When I wrote my series 31 Days to Make a House a Home back in the fall, I told you that I like for my home to have some seasonal touches.  But honestly, this winter was so mild, that spring just kind of slid on in, and my spring decorating has reflected that!  I have been slowly adding spring touches here and there. 

I popped a bit of {faux} greenery into the bean pot that lives with Hudson Lamb on top of the pie safe,   

more {faux} greenery around the candle on the kitchen table, 

and some {faux} forsythia in the crock in the living room.  (Are you seeing a pattern here?)  I think the little wooden bird seems to be singing a welcome to spring!

A bunny made from an old quilt joins more {faux} forsythia by the back door.  (Yep, there's a pattern.  In my house, faux lives remains; real doesn't.  It's that simple.)

Of course, on the first day of spring, Spring Baskets appeared!  (You can read about Spring Baskets, our alternative to Easter baskets, ~HERE~.)

Ther transition into spring will continue.  I need to move the cozy tea tray from the counter, to make room for the rack of white dishes.  I will get out the vintage egg basket and fill it with eggs.  And I will add a few Resurrection Day touches. 

But for now, spring is springing in the house!

  1. That lamb is amazing! He has presence and I adore presence.

    I need some faux forsythia because I'm too lazy to go out there and keep whacking away at the forsythia bushes. Forced blooms don't last long enough for me.

    Love the window shot...wish I could do DO you do that?

  2. I need to get cracking', but spring is so short here all my work so far has been outside. Love these kind of posts, they really inspire me to look at my home through different eyes.

  3. You take the most *gorgeous* pictures! And I have a bean pot that is very similar to yours. :o)

    I also have to say that your faux greenery looks so authentic!

    Happy Friday. :o)

  4. Lovely! I think Hudson is very handsome!

    Sweet touches that really do add that spring feel to the room!
