1). Spring Inspiration: I love to make simple DIY projects for each season. They are definitely my favorite decor! Spring DIYs are so easy! You can make this Simple Spring Centerpiece in about 20 minutes! And this WOW factor Spring Basket For Your Front Door in about the same time. Spring is a time to bring out the faux flowers and use them liberally!
2. Make It Easy: I love this spring salad…Mix spring mix + shredded carrots + sliced green onions + fruit + nuts + chopped rotisserie chicken in a large bowl. And toss with Poppy Seed Dressing: Combine 2 TBS sugar+ 1/4 cup white wine vinegar (I also like apple cider vinegar) + 1 tsp Dijon mustard + 1/4 tsp onion salt in a mason jar and shake. Add 1/4 cup oil of choice and 1 Tbs poppy seeds. Shake well. And Drizzle over salad. Add 2 Tbs of mayonnaise for a creamy version.

5. THIS WEEK ON THE BLOG I shared how I used white chalk paint to update a vintage sideboard, how to decorate a sophisticated Easter table with soft colors, this DIY chinoiserie paper craft and these FREE printable floral spring watercolors.
6. BEAUTY PICKS: Now is a great time to stock up on skin care so you’re set for the season. I’ve been using the same products for years. I use this exfoliant (once a week), this drugstore cleanser daily, and this amazing moisturizer that I’ve sworn by since I was 25 years old. It’s pricey but it lasts a long time and makes a difference you can feel. I use this on my neck and I LOVE this face mask. I do use serums, but I pretty much use anything I got a sample of.

1.) I’m thinking about spring…so I updated my Spring Ultimate Guide and there are more than 70 ideas to welcome spring into your home. Plus there’s a printable collection!
2.) In addition to spring, I’m starting to think about planting…but here in Ohio, it’s not time yet. So a quick fix to tide you over is a kitchen herb garden. This set of planters comes with a handy tray, and this set of metal pots has darling little handles. This set of oblong planters will hold several herb plants, and this wood box is the perfect touch to any farmhouse kitchen.
3.) FAVORITE QUOTE: “It is when you are going through the most difficult chapter of life that your true hero is revealed, and how beautiful it is when you finally realize–you always had the strength to save yourself.” ~Dodinsky
4.) WHAT’S INSPIRING ME: I love the way these tulips are displayed in the clear vase, and this laundry room is simply stunning. I’ve never seen wood shelves on kitchen counters like this, but I think they look amazing, and these floral cookies look too good to eat!
5.) AMAZON FAVORITES: I’m switching things up a bit, and instead of offering an outfit of the week, I’m sharing my latest Amazon favorites. I own and love everything I’m featuring, so take a look HERE. There are comfy leggings, awesome puzzles for kids, tulips, a cotton throw blanket, a tiny set of wooden birds, and more.
6.) Millie turned one a few days ago…and even though there have been moments when I questioned my sanity, we wouldn’t change a thing! She’s spunky, loving, and a ball of energy. She’s got me walking outside 30 minutes a day, and definitely keeps me busy!
7.) WHAT I’M WATCHING On Netflix: Five Feet Apart and Murdaugh Murders. On my watch list: Your Place or Mine and Full Swing. On Paramount+: Behind the Music/Hall & Oates, and the conclusion of 1923. Accused on Hulu: a little creepy but great stories.
8.) RESHARE: I follow a really cute couple on YouTube who call their channel “How to Renovate a Chateau” (Without Killing Your Partner). They actually bought a very rundown chateau in Normandy, France…and they are renovating it, room by room. Some of the work has been hired out, but they have done a huge amount themselves. They are funny, and their life is truly out of the ordinary. They recently shared a video called “2 Years in 15 Minutes” and it has over 5 million views!
9.) That’s it for me…have a lovely week!
