Just as I promised, our Spring shelf decor is finally all done and ready for us to share today!
Don't get me wrong, the holidays are great, but I'm extremely excited to finally have decor on these shelves that can stay up longer than just a few weeks!
I wanted to keep everything really simple and clean, but full of Spring colors that I knew would pop really well against our white planked wall.
I found these moss covered "rocks" (that are really made from light foam forms) at ZGallerie on clearance, so I picked those up and put them into a $3.00 basket that I found at Home Again consignment.

These awesome, over sized, colored, netted mason jars were a new product from Down to Earth at Gardner Village and I immediately fell in LOVE with them. I knew I could use them as decor, straight into the summertime as well.
The thin frame that I hung this green pip berry wreath over with a piece of burlap was one that I snagged up at a thrift store. You can spray paint an empty frame any color, to coordinate with your decor. It's a super inexpensive project and only takes a few minutes + dry time.
I'd love to say that this cute paper pennant banner was my idea, but I'd be lying. ha!
My really good friend Margie Aslett hosts online video craft idea workshops every few months and I took her "Spark your Spring" classes a few weeks back. There were so many fun, adorable ideas for home and everyday crafting, and this pennant garland was one of them!
Since Cason's been teaching Aubrielle how to sew, I commissioned them to assemble my little pennants together after I punched them out with my Fiskars punch.
I have to say that I'm pretty proud of my little chick, who, for some reason, has taken to sewing and loves it! Cason is the one who taught ME how to sew, after I asked for a sewing machine a few Christmases ago (No kidding. His mom made him learn when he was young). I swear this guy has got an overabundance of patience to spare, so standing beside and helping Aubrielle, while she sews straight lines on her first pair of pajama pants, was something both her and him have loved to do together after she gets out of school each day. Typically our little 5 year old jumping bean has a hard time staying still, but surprisingly, will sit and concentrate on sewing for really long periods of time.
I snagged this short little video of her assembling the pennant garland all by herself, because I thought it was so cute.
the girl can barely reach the pedal. ha!
While flipping through some books a little while ago, I came across this quote below and was determined to have it somewhere in my home. Unlike Cason, I struggle daily with patience. It's not that I lose my cool or get mad at anyone... I just have a hard time waiting for things to happen, or not getting a list of tasks completely done at the end of the day.
Cason frequently reminds me that slowing down, taking some time to let things work out on their own and not worrying about them, is sometimes the best way to get through my day. Easier said than done, for me, but I'm trying to embrace this way of thinking; because the latter only stresses me out.
I designed this vinyl decal and put it in The House of Smiths Design shop, so that anyone could purchase it and have it for their home too... oh! and I also put it on sale! whoo hoo!
Okay, so now that I've shared some of our Spring ideas with you...I want to see YOURS!
