Even though my little patch of grass in Wisconsin is still covered in snow, I’ve heard rumors that spring has sprung, so it’s time to celebrate with a Spring Home Tour and a fabulous giveaway from Kirkland’s! I don’t typically do a spring home tour post, but a few things happened this lion-like March to change my mind:
- The lovely Jen Migonis from Migonis Home invited me to be one of 25 fabulous bloggers on her Spring Home Tours blog hop.
- I stepped into a Kirkland’s for the first time and wanted to buy all the things.
- I shared last spring that G and I had set the wheels in motion to find our next house – our “forever home” – and the time has come! Soon we’ll be packing up boxes and saying goodbye to this house we’ve called our home for the past 9 years, so I thought it was only fitting to dress her up one last time for some final photos.
Welcome to our spring home!
Things can get a little dark and heavy in here with G’s massive man TV taking center stage in the living room, so I lightened it up with some pillows, spring flowers, and a light colored throw draped over the ottoman.
The other side of our living room, looking into our kitchen:
I made this easy spring floral arrangement from a large glass lantern and floral filler found at Kirkland’s – I love this lantern so much I bought two of them! (See the second one below in our kitchen.) The geometric wooden vase and faux eucalyptus filler, and porcelain bird are all from Target.
Fun with more spring flowers in the kitchen:
Another Kirkland’s obsession – this mason jar candle runner which I filled with fresh hydrangeas and used as an island centerpiece:
Fresh tulips, my other large glass lantern from Kirkland’s with a faux floating water lily inside, and a preserved boxwood topiary arrangement (also from Kirkland’s) that promises to be nearly impossible to kill. (We’ll see how my black thumb does!)
The eat-in section of our kitchen:
To make this centerpiece I took branches I had spray-painted white, and glued the blossoms of faux dollar store flowers to them:
Kate fell in love with this cute little golden-eared bunny from Target, so we had to find a spot for her in our spring home as well. She goes beautifully with our new gold sphere from Kirkland’s.
