Happy Monday! My boys are on spring break this week, so I’m hoping we’ll actually get spring weather. My husband and I celebrated our 20th anniversary last week. In Hawaii. I can’t tell you how awesome it was to wear sandals again!  It was fabulous . . . .

Up until the day that I got kidney stones. Yes, kidney stones. In Hawaii. Who does that? Apparently me. Unfortunately it was the day we had two activities scheduled. We had to cancel both of them. And we had to get a doctor’s note to get our money refunded. Which made me laugh a little.  Because trust me, if I had to make up an excuse to miss a sunset cruise, it would not be kidney stones. Fortunately I was able to fly home pain free due to a bunch of pain meds. Which also made me totally loopy, so I don’t remember much of what happened that day.  Side note- my husband is rockin’ awesome.

Now that I’m back home, it’s time to start focusing on spring cleaning, spring decorating, Easter, and a couple of birthdays coming up at my house. Today I am sharing my knockoff Ballard Design Shelves all spruced up for Easter. I decided to go pretty subtle with my Easter shelves this year. No carrots or bunnies. Just basic spring colors with hints of Easter.
diy-spring-shelvesI really, really love this space in my home now that I have the shelves up. They are so fun to decorate!
diy-spring-shelvesI got a bunch of fake flowers at Hobby Lobby. I can’t even attempt to have real flowers right now, because Rachel goes right for them, spills the water, and pulls off the leaves. So fakes it is until she’s a little older. For the egg, I just hot glued some moss onto a plastic Easter egg and tied a ribbon around it. Easy!diy-spring-decorI found a flowered plate at my local thrift store and spray painted it blue. I also found an old plate stand and spray painted it white because the black stood out like a sore thumb. The little leaf ball is from Ikea.
spring-flowersMy interchangeable beadboard frame fit perfectly on the bottom shelf. Love it when that happens!
spring-flowersI ordered these little egg cups off amazon a couple years ago, and they have never held actual eggs. I use them solely for decoration, because I just think they are cute. I covered tiny plastic eggs with moss and plopped them in. Doesn’t get much easier than that!
diy-moss-eggsI got this mug on clearance at Tai Pan trading, and I love the color! Those are more sprigs of greenery from Hob Lob, and  I added a dollar store birdie spray painted white.
spring-decorHorray for spring, Easter, and all things warm and sunny!

  3. Sorry, about the kidney stones! Mom didn’t mention that when I talked to her about your vacation excursion. I love the fake flowers. Josh devours my real flowers too. Jared bought me a Valentine rose which hasn’t happened in a while ever since I told him I like practical gifts more than flowers that die. It only lasted a couple of hours before Josh dumped out the water on the counter and pulled the petals off.
