April Features: 

As the crocus and tulips push their way up through the ground, we are reminded of the resurrection that Easter represents. Spring, in itself, is a time to celebrate, especially if you live in one of the colder climes. If you are hosting Easter dinner this year, try these simple homemade Easter decorations to help revive spirits after a long winter.


See Easter Treats for the full story.

 

 

With the warmer weather on its way, many of us feel the need to lighten up our indoor spaces. Make one of these easy and inexpensive vignettes the center of your dining experience or top a coffee table to make an inviting area for tea and conversation. 

Donít be afraid to make use of smaller outdoor items. Garden birds, lanterns and other decorative summer pieces from the dollar store are all fair game for use inside, as well as out.

If you like to create faux snow globes and cloches for Christmas, think about using the same method for making summertime accents. 

For these projects, I used round glass vases but you donít need to limit yourself. Any kind of clear container, from mason jars to any clear vase can be used effectively.
