Remember how I said I was embracing Winter?

Not anymore!

Today I flung open the doors and welcomed Spring with open arms.
Well not literally…it’s only 27 degrees!  Instead, I exercised my decorating creativity and paper crafting skills to make a fun pennant banner embellished with colorful birds and music pages from vintage hymnals.


Do you have a vintage window? No? It's the best investment ever. I have had the omst fun decorating my vintage window for the seasons. For spring I've used vintage hymnal pages, crafted birds, and made a fun baner. Plus there's a link to a tutorial so you can create one too! inspiration.


My vintage window has now undergone its third transformation since I received it as a gift on Thanksgiving.  Take a peek at it as a Christmas Window and later as a Valentine Window.

Who knew that an old window would make such a fabulous gift?


Easy Home Decor Vintage Window Decorated for Spring ::


Those of us who live in the North have another month and a half of Winter, regardless of what good ol’ Phil has to say about it.

The snow has been flying most of the day and the forecast is for freezing rain in the morning.

I’m going to ignore it and think Spring.  You too?


Vintage Window Decorated for Spring with Fabric Floral Wreath & Birds -


I’m going to sing!

Sing like the birdies.

Since I’ve been hearing the birds sing in the morning when I walk, and since Bluebirds have come visiting, I’m pretty sure that Spring is here….regardless of the calendar or the temperature.


Sing for Spring Vintage Window Banner ::



We need more music in our lives.

If you want to be extraordinary….you gotta sing!!


Sing HIS praises.

Sing the psalms, compose hymns and songs inspired by the Spirit,
and keep on singing—sing to God from hearts full and spilling over with thankfulness.
Colossians 3:16 (The Voice translation)


Decor : Vintage Window & Spring Bunting Mosaic -


Are you inspired to sing?

Don’t tell me you don’t have a singing voice.  We were all created to sing the praises of our Creator.  So, if you don’t like hearing your voice…sing in your heart.   Joy will rise.

I love it when I wake up with a song in my heart in the morning.  Does that happen to you too?


A Vintage Window Dressed up for Spring with a Bird Bunting & Wreath -


Spring has come to my home.
Spring has been splashed all over this sentimental vintage window dressed in pennant banners and embellished with vintage hymnal pages and paper birds.  What do you think of this whimsical burst of Spring?

Thanks for popping by!  I love reading your thoughtful words…please be sure to leave a few.  They will be like a warm hug in my day.

What a great end result! I’d have never guessed that one! Well done you. NOW you can plot the Easter one. 😉

    Following from the Pinterest party. This was a really pretty display and the post was just what I needed to hear and be reminded of. I’m grumpy today, things aren’t going my way, and it’s raining and the rain is the best part of the day so far. I needed to be reminded about singing His praises. Thanks

    Thanks so much for joining in this week.


  21. Hello Diane!
    What a positive attitude you have- it’s contagious! It must be so fun to seasonally decorate the window. That is something I would certainly do! Your banner is charming and looks sweet in Easter pastels. Yes, I often wake (or am accompanied all day long) by a song in my head – and laugh when it get’s stuck there into the next day. The only remedy is to sing it aloud! haha~ I must say, though, that this is an issue of the ‘grass is greener’ when it comes to wishing away Winter. In SO CA we get very little ‘winter’ and so I hang onto it for dear life! I know only too well that we will have hot temps up to October 31 and that the long sunny days begin to loose their charm when the sun is glaring in late Fall. I enjoy the cold. I revel in wearing pretty scarves and lovely boots. I embrace the chilly nights (ok, so it is RARELY lower than the 40’s but I have to take what I can get) with charming quilts on the bed. I’ll send some sunshine your way and won’t you please send us a cool breeze or two?
    Visiting from SAT Show Off,

    • Diane says

      You are so sweet!! Funny how perspective makes such a difference in how we view winter. I’m am so grateful that I live where we have all four distinct seasons. It’s truly a blessing. I’ll try to blow really hard and hopefully it will travel across the states to whisper some coolness in your neighborhood.
      Thanks for taking time to stop by and leave your charming words.

  22. I am so jealous of your vintage window! I can’t wait to hear how you did your pennants. I made one for my cousin’s bridal shower, and I am hoping you might have found an easier way.

    • Diane says

      Thanks Maggie! It will be up on Tuesday, I think. I’ll be interested to get your feedback.

  23. Diane – you do such beautiful things with this window! I was drawn to your Valentine’s display too. Following you on Facebook and email!

    • Diane says

      You just put a big smile on my face, Cathy!
      Welcome to this Extraordinary world!
      May your weekend by beautiful!

  24. Pat says

  25. Patti says

    Such creativity! I just love the wreath and welcome banner, can’t wait for spring to arrive!

    • Diane says

      Thank you Patti! Though we wish it to come quickly….it will be here in a wink!
      May your weekend be blessed!

    I still love this window!! I kinda forgot. I like the hymnal pages. I’m so hmm sentimental I photocopy my pages of hymns!! I really like the birds. Reminds me of teaching, changing for the seasons no matter what!! I’m praising God for Tahoe down the Sierras are getting snow–was up to 43%!!! I’ve been shaking my snow globe and last week said to The Lord, Do you want a drought for our sinfulness is great in this state? Should I shake no more for snow in prayer to You? And then quietly just a couple days later, SNOW!!! And more in the mountains tonight too!! I keep praying for we were allocated zero water for AG and zero for oil industries. Big resources for our country. Praise God for snow in the Sierras and yes,, for my blue jay called a scrub jay in my yard. He’s so funny to watch! Ahhh…the storm is coming and that brings much needed rain to the valley floor and snow which feeds our canal systems to water all our crops in the summer blistering heat. Praise God!!
