Spring decorating! (diy,crafts,chalk paint projects}

Spring decorating ideas, craft projects, paint projects, diy
IS it just me? or does anyone else just about this time of year, start yearning for Spring?

I looked back in my archives and this little Spring in a can project was done February 15th! So yep I start getting the Spring fever just about now.

I took a little trip down Spring memory lane.
Want to see what more I was doing last year?

One of my first out door projects was this bench...

{Post here}
Not sure if I will be changing the color  again this year.  I am still loving it.

I started getting into a bit more stenciling...


{post  here}

Spring 2011, was also my first love affair with Annie Sloan chalk paint.
Check out my stockist for some fabulous color choices

Now for 2012 Spring ideas....
I have nodda so far.  I best get crackin.
I did however, find some wonderful inspiration that I would love to share..





Now I am in the mood to get started!

Have a great day!

My hubby is off this weekend and we are heading out to the movies and out to eat with the kids.
Finally, the viruses are over for now in our house.

Still time to get in on the 
ANNIE SLOAN giveaway

All looks so fresh and Spring like but as I look out my window at the snow falling, I think it will be a bit until I can get in the mood for Spring because Winter has finally arrived here in Northeast Pa.!

Debbie, these are some great inspiration photos. I had Spring Fever all winter!! We've had unusually mild weather. Then, today it is freezing cold, with a chance of sleet and snow flurries tomorrow night. I give up!

Love all your inspirations but I think I like the watering cans the best,but could use all of them at this point. It's 14 degrees here and snowing.

I'm a new Linky Follower too!

I could always skip Valentines and skip right to spring. Always ready for spring. (And I rarely have to suffer through winter even...go figure.)

Hard to think of spring here today. Very cold and windy after I was certainly thinking spring with all the warm weather we were having.

Blogger Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

That bench was a great project, Debbie! Most of my Spring thinking right now is what I can plant in pots and around our condo. I don't have the yard and gardens I had in my old house here {which is okay with me}, as I tended more toward potting flowers in the last few years anyway. So, I'm the lookout for ideas for that.

We are having super weather, so I am really thinking spring. I need to get a few projects done. Love all of your projects and your inspiration pics. Can't wait to see what you create. Hugs, Marty

Beautiful photos Debbie, thanks for the the inspiration. I would love for Spring to get here, but we just had snow again last night:( It will be a while for me.

I start yearning for a Spring a bit I usually start thinking about all my daffadils I planted 300 bulbs and I think about my flowering trees.

sooo looking forward to spring =) I can't wait for tulips, daffodils and lush, green grass (where we live, it's all brown and yucky right now).

Pretty inspiration pice!!! We have had hardly any winter at all this year, got spoiled!!! But today it has returned with a vengence, so Spring is far off.....

It's not just you Debbie! I'm longing for spring and summer too! This is why I posted something of similar subject yesterday! Have a nice weekend!

Glad to hear that you all are feeling better. Sounds like fun to get out of the house and do something different for a change. Looking forward to seeing what new projects you come up with this Spring.

Winter returned with all it's wind, cold, and snow yesterday. I guess Spring is on hold here in the northern part of Michigan...for a while anyway.
At least I can come over here and get inspired.
Enjoy your weekend, Debbie.

Me, me... I can't wait for spring. Also, I've been dying to try out that chalk paint. I think I'll use it when I psi t the baby's dresser... When I find time! What's your favorite chalk paint project or color you've done so far?

That inspiration vignette with the metal cans is beautiful; but, no, I'm not anxious for Spring, although the last few days have been in the 70's & the trees all all budding out. The reason I'm not ready is because of what will follow close on the heels of Spring -- SUMMER with its scorching heat! Oh well, things are a bloomin', so best enjoy it now!

Thanks for stopping by to see my latest vignettes. So glad you like the candles, me too!

It has been spring all winter here so I really yearn for some rain but I did buy twenty four pansy plants yesterday so I guess I have the bug. Guess what I am doing today?

Yep! I'm in the mood too...ready to start "pinning" spring/Easter projects. I LOVE that bench and the color! Thanks for bringing a little spring into my day, especially since I'm looking out over the first real snow of the year here. :)

Hmmm, I know I have seen some of those cans in my dad's garage. Although they might be gas cans, lol. I really like that idea, and of course all the others. Since we are apparently not having winter this year, I might as well go on into spring too!

Beautiful ideas, I loved the Spring in a can and your last pic of the floral centerpiece. I thought we were gonna get by with virtually no snow this winter here in central pa, but its coming down hard here now so I will have to simply enjoy your ideas.
Yes, spring fever is here.

On a cold day like today, movies sound like a great idea. I had a few projects I wanted to work on today, but it's too cold for me! Love the photo of the watering cans.

Beautiful photo's Debbie! We honestly haven't had much in the way of a winter here so I'm craving some rain!!! I feel like I need to be active and outdoorsy when it's summery...I want some hunker down and stay inside weather:( Oh well...

No it's not just you Debbie. I am anxiously waiting for spring to get here. I want to get to planting and dining and relaxing outdoors. I love the spring and summer months.

I do love the color blue of your bench! Those are some great projects and inspiration. Usually I can't wait for spring, but we haven't had a big snow yet and it just doesn't feel right to move toward spring without at least going sledding once...and then bring on the sun :)

I love all your visions of spring. I usually get spring fever too, but this year I didn't have to because it's basically been spring here all winter! Had to use the A/C in the car today as we were out and about.

I've been thinking Spring too. We had some snow here in Illinois, but overall, the entire winter was rather mild. Great inspiration.

That easter egg thing got me excited! I looked at the weather in Minnesota today. 15 degrees but felt like 0!!!! Oh my and I was cold here and it was 51!!! I am in a spring mood too!

You have some really pretty spring things. I just adore those little pink flowers and mini daisies with the pink plaid table dressing.

I went thrifting last night and ended up filling my cart with front porch and back porch stuff only. I had no idea I was doing it until I went to check out. I guess a couple of porch makeovers are on the horizon for me. :)

Hi Debbie,
I have spring fever so bad but we still have snow on the ground so it may be quite awhile yet.
I love your projects from last season, that bench is just amazing!
Thanks for some inspiration!
