A Bit of Spring

I worked super hard to add some Spring touches around my home.  Like 20 minutes and a couple bucks hard;)  With a trip to the dollar store and shopping the house, here are some of the bits of Spring decor 2012.
I made a simply Spring garland from egg doilies I found at the dollar store.  All I did was clip the doilies to some jute twine with tiny clothes pins.  I already had the hooks up from my winter garland, so I just wove the twine through.  To dress it up a tiny bit, in the center I tied a bow out of some satin ribbon I had.
Nothing to fancy, but adds the touch of whimsy and Spring to our family room.
I hung my dollar store egg basket I made a couple years ago to the fireplace screen and wrote ‘Spring’ on the chalkboard tag of my $6 thrift store (new with tags from Target) basket.  Spring grasses I already had and the little yellow birdies were stolen borrowed from my little love’s bedroom.
I changed up my little vignette for Spring and added a new quote on my glass.  You can see my other season quotes HERE and HERE.
Love this quote.

I added some Spring twigs & greens along with my Moss Eggs {tutorial HERE} and tied an egg doily on my lamp shade with jute twine. Oh, a little butterfly I bought at Joann's a few years ago for $2.  All I did was lightly paint it. 
Everything I used I already had (except for the doilies) and by simply using things in a different way or changing them up a bit I have a new look for Spring!
Is it feeling like Spring where you are?
