This time of year is one of my favorite times. I love watching things come back to life, the leaves back on the trees, flowers, and my garden is coming together. I also love changing up my decor.
My welcome mat is really easy to change out. The center part of the mat is interchangeable. Every few months I like to update it. This time I used a springtime mat that also matches my flag which is interchangeable. Both my flag and welcome mat also match my wreath on the door that I made. I had CKcustumspa customize my flag with a G for my last name. They did an incredible job on the flag. I love the fact that they were able to change an everyday item to a specialized item for my home.
Along with planting vegetables this spring, I also planted wildflowers, lavender, rose bushes, and Gladiolus mix bulbs. The wildflowers are along the wooded area in my backyard just to bring some color to the backyard. The lavender is in two pots, I want one for a centerpiece on my outdoor table. The other pot is for my front porch, however, after a little more research on lavender, it might not work the way I planted them. My rose bushes are from last year and I am hoping I get them back this winter, the one is doing okay the other two are still looking very small and I am worried.
For the wreath, I went to Hobby Lobby and bought a plain wreath, lemon, white flowers, and lavender. I hot glued everything on the wreath and hung it with some ribbon I had from Michael’s grab box. I have one more thing I would like to add to my porch this year and it is a welcome sign that I am making. I went to the hardware store and bought a piece of wood and I am working on turning it into a sign that I can use year-round.
I like keeping this simple but still looking nice and put together. What is your favorite piece to decorate your home with?
