pop a cork on spring!

To be honest, I can’t quite figure out why I’m inside right now when the loveliness of spring is tapping on my window. Outdoors blue skies and less-icy weather are begging me to come out and play! Alas, I’m an unfortunate adult with work to do…blah…oh to be a kid again!

Taking a short break I wanted to post some recent spring related decor updates I’ve undertaken.

If you’ve seen my house and where I live you know that it’s almost cabin-like in its remoteness and architectural style. Therefore many of the wonderful decorating inspirations I come across are hard to mesh what we’ve got to work with – speaking in terms of design and budgetary constraints.

So, when I was shown this idea, I jumped on it!

It was cheap, doable, and, most of all, so lovely! At least to me…

All I did was wash out various sized and shaped wine bottles (thanks Brittney!) and peeled off the labels. Then I chose several complimentary faux flower stems at my local craft store. I picked out an arrangement of peonies and hydrangeas in three different color shades to highlight the advent of spring while making sure it didn’t clash with the rest of my house. You can use whatever flower you like best!

I’m not done tweaking (in fact I’ve pushed the arrangement closer together since these pics were taken) and may yet add to it…we’ll see 😉

See what you think. I’d love to hear what you’ve done to spruce up your space for spring?!
