I love the word metamorphosis.
This weekend, I had a sun room metamorphosis of sorts, as I notched up my spring decor.
The biggest change is the addition of flowering branches.
Do you see them?
They were so. very. difficult to photograph. Seriously impossible.
In my quest for decent pictures I took photos on multiple days.
You’ll notice that some of the photos are taken on a sunny day. Yup. We had ONE!!!
The others…on not-so-sunny days.
Actually today was a cloudy snowy day.
What is it with April? Didn’t she get the memo? Spring arrived more than 10 days ago!!
Or maybe, Mother Nature is in cahoots with April and they are pranking us for April Fools!
The second big change was hanging my old forsythia wreath in the window.
I absolutely love it!! It’s like having a sunny orb in the house. Almost.
Just in case you’re into details…several years ago I wanted a forsythia wreath for my front door. Everywhere I went those bright golden wreaths required real gold to purchase. They were expensive. But, at a stop to A.C. Moore…I miss that place…do they have one by you? …I saw that I could purchase a garland of forsythia for about half the price. Since I have a tendency to remake things and had a small twiggy wreath form hanging around, I just wired the garland to the wreath form and voila! I had my wreath! Oh…and if I remember I had a coupon…more savings!!
The other change was to move the white cabinet at an angle across the corner of the room….which necessitated the rescued wicker chair be moved too. If you have a really good memory, you’ll also notice that I changed out the pillow on the chair to one I made a few years ago. Are those ruffles still in?
And in case you’re wondering about the pretty eggs in those even prettier Longaberger Baskets…
Those eggs are the real deal and all were blown by my husband. (I know, I’m blessed. Or he got tired of picking me up off the floor from fainting from all my efforts to blow out the eggs.) I dyed those eggs with food coloring. That was my Easter project about three years ago. The eggs are kept in egg cartons for storage and even survived a state to state move.
My sweet tabby cat wanted to be in on the photo session. It required a bit of patience on my part as I had to wait until she was looking at me to snap the picture.
Animals are always a plus. Right?
Did you notice my daffodils are holding up pretty well? Formerly prop stars from my traveling show of old, they have weathered well and are vying with the forsythia to steal the sun room’s show.
So what do you think of the sun room metamorphosis?
I’m pretty happy with it.
Really who doesn’t like a bit of spring decor to brighten up the house?
I almost forgot. We never talked about those flowering branches. Aren’t they lovely?
You are going to flip when you hear this.
They are in reality book-page flowering branches. Yes! I made them.
I’ve got your attention now. [ear-to-ear-grin]
I’m going to make you wait until tomorrow when I’ll share a big splashy tutorial.
The wait is over….here is the tutorial!
