Did you notice the wire basket they're in? There is a glass container inside the wire basket to hold the water. I purchased this online at Katie's Rose Cottage. I'm sure you've seen this online shop before. If not, you can go there here. They have amazing farmhouse and French decor.
They included this cute little tag: Spring birds!
I bring in the SCENTS OF SPRING into my home with a new Spring fragrance. I found Colonial Candle's fragrance, SPRING AWAKENING. This scent promises to invigorate with fresh apple, grapefruit, and sun dried cotton. I'm looking forward to awakening my senses!
I'll throw open the windows ( yes, even just a little bit if there is still snow on the ground ) for another invigorating scent of CRISP FRESH AIR! Throwing open the windows enriches at least FOUR of my senses as I SMELL the fresh air, FEEL the cool breeze on my face, HEAR the birds chirping outside, and SEE the curtains billowing gently in the breeze.

Spring taste is lighter fare than the hardier, heavy winter foods. Vegetables, early strawberries, rhubarb, asparagus, arugula, radishes and more are some of the tastes of Spring. So I begin to make lighter foods, trips to the Farmer's Market, and use the produce of others before the gardening can begin. Different foods can highlight the beginning of Spring. It's fun to highlight the season with fresh new Spring foods!

In Spring I begin to de-clutter and the Spring Cleaning begins. Spring cleaning brings order and freshens my home. Here's one little thing I'm going to do this month. My husband and I are book lovers but we have way too many piling up here and there around the house, spilling out of their designated "home". So every day we'll take 15 minutes to sort through the books in one room ( yes, they're scattered throughout the house by now ) and sort them. We'll give away some to our church library or the Salvation Army OR put them back in their "home" in the little office space we have.
Maybe I'll create some new shelves in our little office space like the one pictured here. It's simple, small, and uncluttered. I found this on Pinterest, of course.
And finally I'll add a few Spring light and airy colored pillows to brighten the mood of our home.I found some new ones on Etsy here that are colorful and happy! They literally shout "HAPPINESS"!
By bringing a bit of SPRING into our home in early March we move ahead of winter. We're always ready for Spring before it actually arrives so MARCHING INTO SPRING inside our home gets us there sooner. We don't have to wait for the weather outside to catch up. How about YOU? Are you ready to MARCH INTO SPRING inside your home?
