Here in Florida, we pretty much go straight from Fall into Spring. Not much Winter in these parts. I mean, temps reached 80 degrees yesterday, y’all. And it’s only the beginning of April! So, I pretty much figured it was time for the Spring Holiday Shelf!
When I started this whole “Holiday Shelf” deal, it was because I wanted a certain spot in which to be festive around the house, just because I could! After a little bit it turned into more of a simple kind of celebration. Now, it’s a fun creative outlet! And a lil’ challenge sometimes. I like to buy one new piece and then create the rest of the shelf with things I already have at the house. Which is exactly how it worked out this time around!
The piece I bought this time is right in the middle…
Well, folks, by the calendar, it’s SPRING!
I have a love/hate relationship with Spring, myself. I love it because everything starts going towards bright and cheerful and colorful. I hate it because I can’t stop sneezing, and normally develop some kind of sinus infection or bronchitis attack. Gotta take the good with the bad, I guess!
And one of the good things is, I can make it look like Spring INSIDE my house without sneezing a bit! Allow me to present to you…the 2016 Spring Holiday Shelf!
The centerpiece of this design is clearly the glass milk jugs in the wire basket.
Well, Valentine’s Day has come and gone, so, of course, I’ve redecorated my Holiday Shelf! For those of you who are newer to the blog, I’ve always wanted a mantel to decorate to match the changing seasons, but we haven’t lived in a house with a fireplace yet. So in each home we’ve lived in, I have set up a shelf that I can decorate and have a bit of fun with as the time goes by. If you’d like to see last year’s Spring Holiday Shelf, CLICK HERE! And HERE is the one from 2013!
But, for now…
There she be! I call it: Spring is Coming! Here’s why:
On the right, everything still looks kind of “wintery”, right?
