Today I thought I would bring you another little touch of Spring.
I don't know about you but I am needing it.
This week is Spring break for the kiddos
Mother Nature has not cooperated at all.
On Sunday they were swimming in the pool
on Monday the rain and the cold came.
Now it's so chilly you have to wear a jacket outside
swimming is out of the question.
So, I decided to make a little Spring in my cloche to help us
remember it is - in fact, still Spring
Just a simple little display that brings Spring back
on this gloomy, chilly and rainy day.
This is a very simple little project that takes only a few minutes.
The cloche is one I got at a thrift store last fall for $2.
(I love changing the little displays in it regularly.)
I just put some craft store pebbles on the plate first.
Then I covered a piece of Styrofoam with some moss
stuck a couple of faux Spring dogwood twigs in it.
Placed that on top of the pebbles.
Added one of the little birds I got at Cracker Barrel for $.99
it was done.
A cute little bit of Spring to get rid of the rainy gloom of the day.
I know that Mother Nature has not been kind to most of the country
a lot of you are now covered in snow again.
We had lots of fun outdoor activities planned for this week
with all the rain, wind and chilly temps have been forced to indoor fun.
I am just hoping that the rain forcast for the weekend doesn't make it here.
So, how about you ?
What are you doing to keep Spring alive in your home?
