I don’t know about you, but I am so sick of cold temperatures, ice storms, and feet of snow on the ground. I’m ready to see green grass and to bust out my flip flops. While I don’t know if we are done with this terrible weather, I can be hopeful by packing up all my winter stuff and bringing out some springy items. I have banished every last snowman object around my house and cleared off all surfaces of anything that suggests cold. And then I was left with…nothing. I then realized that I don’t have any spring decorations. Our old house was small, and other than the occasional candle or picture frame, we just didn’t have many decorations because space was so limited. So off I went to Michaels and Joanne fabrics, and all their spring stuff was just so…pink. And full of carrots, and bunnies, and eggs, not what I was looking for. I need bright colors, not pastels and fluffy tails. So I decided to shop my house (a wise friend told me to do that once, Hi Carrie!!) and I found this box of my daughter’s. It’s a Melissa and Doug box that’s supposed to store her animal magnets, but who am I kidding? This box doesn’t store anything, those magnets live strewn across the floor. So, I decided to repurpose it.
This color is bright and springy and just what I was looking for. You can see where this is going right? I stole the two year olds toy box and painted it. She will never know.
