A Tiny Bit of Spring Fever!

OK, I love snow and we are expecting another snow storm towards the beginning of next week....but I have to admit that I do have a tiny bit of spring fever. We were off of school today so I did a little shopping. Here are my little goodies. Can you tell I'm ready to put out my spring decorations? I found these things at A.C. Moore. I was looking for some new greenery to tuck into a few baskets, but did not see any that I liked. However, I loved this wreath!!

I couldn't resist these bunnies. Too cute!

I also set out some spring "grass" that I bought last year.

I did stop by my local GW and found these goodies. They were just calling my name. The candle holders will all get painted black. The bunny plaque is begging to be repainted and stenciled or something. I also need an idea for how to cover the heart on the little bench. Anyone have a good way to do that? I guess I could hang a little piece of homespun or something over the top to cover it. It will be painted also. Hmmmm....

I also wanted to share something I love to do. I like to take prim greeting cards and frame them into pictures to set around my home. Here are a few pics of ones that I have done. The pineapple one is my favorite!

Well, tomorrow I am driving to Columbus to pick up a shelf that I ordered from The Olde Farmstead (I love that store!). I have been trying to get up there to pick it up for three weeks now and have been stopped by snow each time! Tomorrow is the day! I will post a pic of it soon!
Enjoy your weekend!


  1. Great finds, those bunnies are too cute. I see a lot of people have AC Moore's we don't here.


  2. Nice finds and buys at A.C. Moore. And oh my I love your idea of framing the cards ! They look primtastic. Hope you have a wonderful weekend and a sweet Valentines Day =0) Can't wait to see your shelf.

  3. It all looks great Stacy! The cards look good. I have seen some people covering up those hearts by putting a wooden or rusty star over the top. Maybe That will work or you could use a small piece of coverlet or homespun to drape over the back like you would a couch. Hope to see the redo's! Love those bunnies! I have never heard of that store before though...

  4. The bunnies are perfect! And I just love the pictures. So prim.....

  5. I am a second grade teacher too, and married to my high school sweetheart. Except we have been married 32 years! I like your blog.

  6. You put me in the mood for spring! Love you new decor! It will be nice when there is no white in sight. Hang in there with all your snow!

  7. Love the bunnies! They are too cute.
    Love your pictures too. I've done the same thing with some prim wall paper boarder.
    Have a great day.

    Prim Blessings,

  8. Hi Stacy!

    I just found your blog last night and I'm almost sure we live very close to each other. I'm just across the river in Ashland!
    I love your decor and I enjoy going to AC Moore, M's and HL too! Where do you find all your frames? They look great!
    I am very new to blogging and would love for you to visit mine sometime.

  9. I love your goodwill finds. You could nail a rusty star over you heart on your bench if you like stars. They come in just about every size you need.
    Your framed prim cards are beautiful. Something so simple but very decorative. Thanks for the idea.

  10. Your Easter bunny finds are too cute! The candle holders are going to look very nice painted black. I was thinking the same as you on covering the heart... putting homespun over it, but I really like Amy's idea of covering it with a rustic star. That would look good too.

    I also frame cards. I'm always on the lookout for primitive looking cards. They are hard to find, I usually only find them at specialty/gift shops.

    Hope you have a delightful week my friend~
