Ironically, I have a holiday poinsettia in my kitchen. I placed it on the window ledge, facing the snow-covered backyard so it can look out the window and dream of a white Christmas for next year. The poinsettia is team mullet.

Here are a few ways to decorate for spring when one side of your yard looks like a mullet… I mean winter.

Somewhere between last July and February, I fell in love with gingham. I love to wear gingham, but I was a little hesitant to go gingham style on my house. Winter will turn anyone.

With a 2nd snow day, I caved and ordered gingham cloth napkins from Amazon. I just Googled gingham and three days later I had a set of gingham cloth napkins.

I first introduced gingham into the house with a roll of ribbon. It was a low-cost purchase. The boxwood loved it!

I purchased this little plant (does anyone know what type of plant it is?) for a seller’s kitchen during the holidays. She didn’t want another plant to take care of so I brought it home for the holidays. It’s still here!

It was time to switch out some of my pillows. I found this Cheers pillow from Pottery Barn in Salt Lake City when my boys played in a sectional tennis tournament. 

The pillow cover was perfect for the month of January, but by March it was ready for spring

I hold off on a spring wreath because we get some hair-whipping

winds in the spring. Nobody needs to see me chasing a wreath with velcro curlers in my hair. I love to decorate the back of my front door for this reason. 

Mother Nature appears to have her eyes on Colorado this weekend to give us a little more snow. Of course, we always need the moisture so maybe I’ll add a Christmas wreath to the back door.  Well,

I guess I don’t have to worry about this phobia just yet.  Have a great weekend! What plans do you have for the weekend?
