Spring is Coming... I hope!

Here in Chicago, it doesn't feel like Spring quite yet. The temperatures are in the 30s today...brrr! BUT the sun is shining and I get the fever - Spring Fever! I run out to feed the birds and spot a few of my tulips and hyacinths peeking up from the ground!! There is hope...

It's all I need to get a jump start on Easter decorating and planning! (Stay tuned for recipe updates!)
Love that I don't have to invest in tons of plastic stuff I have to store for holidays. By simply adding the color of the season with linens, flowers, and veggies to my dinnerware collection, I'm good to go!

I LOVE Spring!

Welcoming Foyers

Organizing A Gift Wrap Station

Get Organized before the holidays hit!! One area of organization that saves me tons of time is having my gift packaging items organized and easy to move from one location to another. A tiered basket is perfect for holding bowls filled with ribbons, trims, tags, stickers, tape, pens, scissors, and festive embellishments. A container to store gift wrapping paper, gift bags, and tissue. Next time you want to wrap birthday gifts by the fireplace you have everything together to make gift wrapping fun rather than frustrating! Off to wrap gifts for a birthday "Winter Wonderland" party!
