Spring has the house at least

 So I am welcoming March with Spring Decor.  I know it seems a little early, but I am ready for warmer weather, aren't you?

ON a little side note...I need you opinion on my front door.  Getting this door was a VERY long process, let me tell you!  I went through Lowes and it was a bit of a nightmare.  We started last Summer and after waiting 7 weeks for it to be made, it came in wrong and had to be reordered.  In the end, it is still not how I ordered it, but I got tired of the fight.  It is supposed to have panes on the windows that are black--an extension of the door--not plastic inside the glass (do you know what I mean).  I guess the manufacturer can't do that with this door, so I am not sure why they told me yes when I ordered it that way.  So what do you think?  Should I have them make panes or do you think it is fine the way it is?  My husband likes it without, but I am not sure??  I really wanted them, but now having some installer try to make them from scratch,  kind of worries me.  It may not be worth the trouble.  What do you think? 

 I found that cute little burlap bunny at TJ Max for $7... what a bargain, huh?!  Hopefully he lasts better than my pumpkin.  Remember that?  BOYS!!

Our board has a little reminder for my crew---what is it with boys and trash talkin'?  Ugh...

I got a new Potterybarn catalogue in the mail this week.  I am dreaming about Easter parties.
I love that banner--I think I could make it.  Burlap is so cute, don't you think?
Oh and the tulips and branches in blossom--BEAUTIFUL!
I am now on the lookout for a big white pitcher and pretty blossoms for my dining room table.

And I wanted to share a little inspiration that I watched this week and LOVED.
As I turn my thoughts toward Easter I am so thankful for Jesus Christ--I know that peace and happiness are found in trusting in Him--we are never alone.

Favorite quotes from the clip "Acting on even a twig of faith allows God to grow it" and
"...serving God and others persistently with full heart and soul turns testimony of truth into an unbreakable spiritual strength."  

Have a wonderful weekend!

Your front door is really beautiful! Sometimes I too have a hard time just accepting what it is when "it" is not what you ordered and then after re-doing I wish I had just left "it" alone...does that make sense? Husbands do have lots of insight on this type of thing as they can be more accepting and not so emotional :) Your Spring touches look delightful.
