~~~I Couldn't WAIT!!!~~~~

Good evening everyone!!!!! Today was a beautiful day, 70 degrees so I decided I couldn't wait another day to decorate the front porch for SPRING!!!!!!!!!!! We are to have 2 days of cold again on Fri. and Sat. but then 60, 65, and 2 days of 70 again! I think Spring might just be around the corner and I, for one, couldn't be happier!!!! So this is how the front porch looks after all the Christmas decorations are put away. Do you remember the sleigh and reindeer and snowman etc???? They have been put away for quite awhile and this BARREN looking porch makes me crazy. So today was the day to SPRUCE it up!!!
 I thought I would show you a close up of this wonderful guy. I really love him. We bought him at the gift shop at Winterthur many years ago.
 I drug out the table and one chair from under the side deck where they are stored in the winter. OOOO, they were grody! Got out my soap and water and scrubbed them clean!
 There! That's much better. I hadn't raked the leaves yet when I took this shot, sorry. I'll show you around.....
 This wooden bunny was purchased at a local craft fair many years ago and I placed my 2 little clay bunnies at his feet.
 The bench gets a cushion and some Spring pillows. Just noticed that the cushion isn't cenetered:(
 A solid green pillow, a flowered pillow and a small bunny pillow.
 On the other side of the door is the table and chair.
 This egg wreath is temporary. I also made a NEW Spring wreath today and will post it and a TUTORIAL next week.
 This cute little guy was a gift from my girlfriend, Jackie, She made her from a coke bottle!!!!! I think she is adorable! She has a cute little dress and holds a rake in one hand and a basket of carrots in the other.
 I made this little arrangement from several different types of grasses. It is a symbol of the PROMISE of Spring and green grass!
 Aren't the little bunnies cute?
 A close up if the carrots in Mrs. Bunny's basket.

 This is a tiny basket covered with hydrangea blooms. I filled it with 3 different types of eggs.

 The flowered pillow and on this side a chick pillow. Both of the little pillows came from Christmas Tree Shops.
 I took a short break for some lunch on the porch. Egg salad sandwich and diet coke. Of course I NEED chips with a sandwuch:):)
 Now, here is a TINY sneak peek at the Spring wreath I created today. Remember, I will post it next week along with a tutorial. Please stop back!!!

  1. I love your spring decorations Pinky. The bunny with the basket of carrots is adorable!

  2. I understand perfectly about not being able to wait any longer, I feel the same way. Your spring/Easter decorations look very timely to me. I love the floral arrangement you made. And yes,the little bunnies in it are adorable for sure. I can't wait to see your spring wreath!

  3. Whoa! You really ARE ready for Spring!!!!!!! I'm right there with you, sister! Our daffodils showed their heads in full yesterday, so it's feeling like Spring when I look out the back window. We'll get some warmer weather this weekend again, too. You have SO MUCH room on your porch!!! That is fabulous!!!!!! I wish! I love the stone, too. You did a great job of decorating. Easter will be here in one short month, and then we'll be full speed ahead!

  4. Hooray for Spring!
    I just love that arrangement with the little bunnies! Everything looks like such a breath of spring.
    And I know from experience that your lunch was delicious!
    Love you.

  8. This looks so pretty, Pinky. I have been itchin' to do some "work" on the back porch.

  9. Looking springy! Here in Tennessee we have had a very mild winter. Some trees are already blooming.
    My back patio and porch and crying out for some attention.... Next week...Spring Break! Enjoy your
    warmer temps!

  10. Oh, are indeed getting ready for spring. It is cold here today so my basket of spring flowers look a little out of place...but, like you say, the warmer days are coming. :))

  13. Whoa are certainly ready for Spring! Your porch is looking so very cute...down to the pillow on the bench...Here, here for Spring!

  14. Pinky,
    Love the Spring that has arrived at your front door!!! The glimpse of your new wreath is just gorgeous...what a tease! I'll be back soon, dear friend! I'm off to unpack my Spring clothes as the weatherman states it will be in the 70's all next week on the Prairie!

  15. So pretty! You've done a wonderful job of adding spring to your porch. Would you please come here and help me? :-)

    Can't wait to see your wreath!

  16. The porch looks great! I especially love the arrangement that you made out of different grasses. And those little bunnies tucked in are so adorable! I'm going to be right behind on you on getting the porch ready for Spring. Thanks for inspiring.

  17. Love your porch and Easter decor!!
    It was in the high 60's here in my neck of Pa....


  18. Your front door and porch are taking on a spring look, for sure! I love the bunny!!!
    I think I fixed the inlinkz problem... stop over and post your menu.

  19. So pretty, Pinky! I love your Easter/Spring spruce up to your front porch ... the wreath is wonderful ... love the pillows ... and your bunnies are too cute! What a wonderful welcome!

  20. Your back deck area has been spruced up nicely. I love all of your cute Easter decorations too. We have yet to spruce up our front porch for Spring. Looking forward to making it look better.

  21. Oh,Pinky! Your wreath is gorgeous, and I'm feeling guilty because I don't have one on my door. I love all the gardening elements on the wreath and the bulb.
    I just realized you use a wreath stand thingy to hold it while you make it. Sooo smart. Better than flat on the table. I'm going to look for one of those too. I don't know why I never thought of using one.


Thanks you for leaving your lovely comments. xo, Pinky
