Inspiring Easter eggs

Martha Stewart




These are not just any ordinary Easter eggs - you know, the ones you buy in the little kits and make with your kids every year? From beautiful gold foiled, marbleized, moss covered, to fun painted silhouettes, beautiful robins egg blue, to chalk painted eggs to personalize, these eggs are beautiful and so unique. They would make a beautiful addition to any Easter d├ęcor. And I love showing off eggs in glass vases and cloches. Here are a few of my favorite photos to help inspire you this Easter season.

Spring Cleaning


Apartment Therapy
It's coming! Even if we have to force it a little bit like these branches above, but Spring is almost here!
Usually with Spring I start to get that Spring cleaning bug. It could be because it is lighter out later into the day and I start to notice more of the dust and clutter and signs of being trapped indoors. So I started thinking about how to tackle this seasonal chore we all seem to do every Spring, I know I need motivation!

Spring Cleaning 101

What not to do:

    ~ Get overwhelmed.
    ~ Take on more then one room at a time.
    ~ Keep all the cute winter projects up your kids made, new spring ones are sure to come.
    ~ Hold on to all those snow boots, gloves and snow pants you think your kids will get one more
    year out of when they are already jammed in.              
     ~Keep all the Christmas and Valentines candy you still have, Easter is right around the corner!

Things to do:

     ~Work in one room at a time and don't move to another room until you are finished.
     ~Clean out the closets and really throw out those clothes you've been holding onto since college
     hoping they'll come back in style and they still fit!
     ~Wash all the salt and grime off your floors.
     ~Wash your windows inside and out, although if you haven't cleaned inside yet, it will only
      make it brighter showing off more clutter and dirt.
     ~Open the windows and get some fresh air in.
     ~cut some flowering branches and put in water, force the buds to open, it will make you happy.

Happy Spring Cleaning
