It may seem like I’m primarily focused on fixing up the bathroom, but that’s not true. I’m literally all over the place when it comes to setting up our apartment. Seeing as it was warm enough for us to turn off the heat and open up the windows this past weekend, I thought it was appropriate to start decorating the apartment for Spring. Sure, we still have some unpacking to do (and I wasn’t sure how to dress for 50°F because it’s been so long), but it’s practically mid-March. That means I’m behind in decorating!
Up first is one of our hurricane glasses filled with Easter grass and pastel eggs on our television stand. I thought about putting a candle in there but truth be told, I have no idea where those are (probably with the Christmas stuff). I’m going to save that idea for when we need a centerpiece for the table.
Most of my decorating involved our Expedit bookcase, which is one of my favorite things to decorate. Heck, I even spent some time this weekend organizing the books on the shelves. I’m such a wild child.
The first part of decorating involved our Jonsbo Barby table lamp from IKEA. Since it’s hollow, I’m able to fill it up. Since last Spring, I’ve been keen on these sweet little white flowers (for the Fall I always decorate with leaves and in the Winter I decorate with holly… and and elf). The lamp’s shape sort of distorts the flowers and makes it look pretty cool.
On my trip to the grocery store, I spotted these sweet little pots of shamrocks for $1.69. They pot fit perfectly in this little planter I grabbed at IKEA quite some time ago.
Clearly, this shamrock plant was the first thing I put in my shopping basket, which I then carried home every-so-carefully. This explains why I am not the typical person who goes grocery shopping. I return with things like carrot juice and shamrocks.
At the other end of the bookcase, we’ve got another hurricane glass filled with easter grass and pastel eggs, a block calendar that I won at a bridal shower, and a little chick who chirps when you put it in your hand.
I also got to hanging the wreath I tackled for the Pinterest Challenge on our front door. Thankfully, there was already a screw in the door so I was able to hang it off that. I don’t have a picture to prove it (yet), but it looks pretty darn cute up there.
So, did you start busting out the Spring decor? Anyone else forget how to dress for the warm weather?
