Spring is definitely here in Dallas. Forty degrees one day, eighty the next. I’m okay with it because the alternative is 100, 100, 100, 105, 100…
Plus, spring in Texas is pretty, which is a nice change from the awful muddiness of Alaska. Spring in Fairbanks is one of the few things I don’t miss about living there.
My winter wreath is looking pretty sad these days. I guess I’m going to have to do something different next year because I think it’s seen its last season on our front door. I’m not actually even a huge wreath person, but sadly, my door is still damaged from the time we had to break in after locking ourselves out, so it needs something to distract from the ugly. (Don’t ask….it’s not a happy story.)
A quick trip to Michael’s and half an hour putting it together and my spring wreath was ready to replace the well-loved specimen on my door. (I’ve gotten so many compliments from strangers on that wreath that I’m sad to see it go…someone even suggested I sell them at a farmers market or something. If she only knew how easy and inexpensive it was to put together!)
I intended to go with more of a green theme, but couldn’t find green hydrangeas that I liked so I went with white instead. Not quite what i wanted, but I still like it pretty well.
P.S. Please ignore the scratches on my door. I obviously need to break down and re-paint.
