Spring Fever!

Last weekend~ in the midst of our own little Blizzard here in Northeast Ohio, I felt I was going a little crazy! As the snow fell, I just couldn't stand it anymore so I decided even if it was going to look like January outside it was going to be Spring inside of our house :) I started my Spring and Easter decorating with a bang~ first in the dining room and then in the family room~ I did buy a very cute Spring wreath with little Easter eggs on it for the front door, but I thought I would cry if I saw it frozen and covered in snow~ so I am holding off on hanging that till the snow completely thaws...maybe by June??? LOL

This is my first little Easter display, I found some AMAZING new bunnies over at TJ Maxx of all places~ I like the way they look added in with some of my own handmade Spring craft delights and some from other crafty artists that I bought on etsy!
As you can see I still haven't been able to put away my pink bells nickle Santa that my husband got me for Christmas~ I just LOVE him, and since he is in pink I think he can stay around through summer.

This is the bottom of the shelf in my family room~I used this flea market find stool to add a little height to the vignette, and topped with a few of my favorite Cody Foster putz houses. The large papermache bunny is from The CountryHouse ~ I picked him at the store in Salsbury, Maryland a couple years ago when we visited Ocean City~ he is actually a candy container too. You can check out their website here, check out their seasonal items~ really cute stuff!!
Next to him, the picture kind of cuts off, but that little bunny I picked up at a garage sale~ I love the chipped paint on him.

This is also a little vignette from my family room shelf~ these are some new little guys that I picked up at a local "never-know-what-you-are-going-to-find"/bargain/grocery store that we have in Northeast Ohio called Marcs. These were so inexpensive and are SO SO So adorable! I feel so lucky to have gotten them~ usually they only have a few of each item there, so you have to go often to find the best stuff~ because it goes quick, I guess it just happened to be my lucky day!!!

I hope that all of you are having fun preparing your homes for Spring and Easter time too!

Happy Spring!
