The other day I went looking for spring flowers to decorate the front door with.
It looked kind of empty….
….after I took the Christmas wreath off it.
I looked everywhere….from home improvement stores to local nursery’s.
Nothing to decorate a spring front door with.
What were they thinking?
….didn’t they notice that it was in the 40’s.
That’s swimsuit weather around here.
After hours of looking…..I didn’t find any fresh flowers…..
…..but I did find two of these.
They were only $5.00 and the tag said “Peach Picking Baskets.”
Have you ever seen a basket like this?
Total trash to treasure.
I have seen the apple baskets….they are low and round and I use them to decorate for fall.
But peach picking baskets?
I decided they were the foundation for my “almost spring” door.
I brought them home and placed a topiary inside and put them on the front porch on either side of the front door…..
…..and then I shopped the house for the rest.
I found an entire generation of round spheres.
Metal and wood and rustic and simple and big and small.
They had a family reunion on the almost spring front porch.
I found a random metal object and used it as a wreath.
Perfect for an almost spring door.
(total aside: if you have a random metal object at your house and you want to use it on the front door….add those sticky circles that go on the bottom of furniture on the back to prevent scratching).
In the end with a little trash to treasure and shopping the house…..
…..the almost spring door decorating finally came together.
It’s a definite improvement from the Christmas wreath still on the door in March.
But just between us….here’s hoping that March showers…..
….bring the front door plenty of April flowers.
Need a little more trash to treasure inspiration?
