I finally got with it, though, and brought a trash bag in and took all the greenery down. I looked around the house and placed some new things on the mantel. I found some spring branches at Michael's and put them inside this black urn. Here is the finished product.
I was surprised at how fresh the room felt with this change.
I've also been loving these...
Don't you love fresh flowers? I found these at a flower shop here in town - 2 bunches for $10.
I brought out my Easter bunny, too. (T.J. Maxx purchase from a few years ago)
Now for a few random comments...
I've been looking around and pricing monogrammed pillow shams for our bedroom. This photo isn't our bedroom, but I love the look. (photo courtesy of Traditional Home April 2014). There is just something so crisp and fresh about those shams. It's just a little touch, but it makes a big impact.
I posted this photo of the front of our home on instagram today. I need to blog about how we came to build this home. It is truly a testimony to the kindness of God.
Finally, even though I said I took down all the "Christmas" greenery, I couldn't quite part with my amaryllis...here they are in the dining room! You can see now how much I really do love the color red.
Have a happy week!
