Spring Bling Part 2

So far, I'm getting much faster on the laptop. This post only took me about 4 hours to do. I'm getting there. And yes, ladies, I'm SO getting a mouse this weekend! Edited to add: Rhoda at Southern Hospitality is hosting a spring party! I was so obsessed with getting these posts done that I completely forget to mention it!!! Forgive me, Rhoda!!!

More spring means more eggs, right? Pottery Barn last year--$2.00 a bag.

Ugh...love them!

Just a little dash of color here. Pier 1 last year--$1.50 for a whole little crate of them. I bought the last two, and I was mad they didn't have more!


I sure hope you're not sick of Pier 1 yet. You guessed it. Got these last year. It was a pricey $4.50, but it was worth it. :) The eggs are little soaps. Cute, eh?

The little nest goes well with my Dollar Store ceramic egg.

To be honest, this bunny's a little cutesy for me, but she was so cute in the store, and she was so beat up, and she was only $6.00. She needed a home. Plus, the kids like her. I shall name her "Bunny". (For you, Amber!)

A couple of you were concerned for my lack of glitter in my spring decor. Never one to disappoint, I am making sure you know that there is, in fact, some glitter. Sparkly candle eggs do the trick!

I think that's about it for spring. I'm hoping to get some larger projects done around here, so the little decor may have to take a backseat for a moment. Thank goodness there's a repreive (repreave? too lazy to check) after Easter!

Yeah, I get to be the first to comment. I love your "Spring Bling" especially that you got everything at such a good price. I can't wait for the after season sale, I will definitely be visiting Pier 1. Happy Spring!!!!

When I was a little girl, my mom decorated for every holiday. Unfortunately, my kids haven't had those memories yet - I'm heading out on a hunt tomorrow for some eggs and a few nests! Maybe even a tattered bunny . . . I want my kids to have that. Thank you for the pep talk!

Lisa said...

Lovin' those blue eggs!

Lisa said...

TELL ME, TELL ME, TELL ME, WHEN EXACTLY DID YOU GO TO PIER ONE TO GET THE EASTER DISCOUNTS?

THANK FRIEND. I LOVE WHAT YOU'VE DONE

HUGS FROM MAINE

Andrea said...

you are going to have so many chicks around your house when all those eggs hatch! :-)

Janiece said...

I love all the eggs!
Spring really is in the air!

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Ahemmmm, OK, so it's ALLllll pretty and springy, but I was hoping you'd mention my PAR-TAY this time. :)

Ladies, there is a Spring Fluffing Partay going on over at Southern Hospitality! Chris forgot to mention it.:)

Amanda@Imperfectly Beautiful said...

After reading this post I have come to the conclusion that I do not have nearly enough cute little eggs in my decor! I WILL find some tomorrow.

Jenny said...

Cute!

I have to recommend a great mouse for you. It's a Logitech V550 Cordless Laser Nano Mouse. It's not cheap, but I had been through so many cheap ones that broke.

The best part about the mouse is that the part the plugs in to USB port hardly sticks out at all! Before, all of the other mice receivers stuck out more than an inch and would get bumped and eventually broken.

Good luck with your mouse hunt! LOL!

Tara said...

Okay...everything is adorable! love it all....great ideas!! ♥

Natalie Jane said...

I will not let my jealousy about your computer keep me from telling you that your eggs are fab. But my jealousy will not allow me to say more....

Amber said...

What the heeeezy, did I seriously just get a shout out in your post!? :) You're freakin awesome.

And I shall call him cutesy.

Also love that you're too lazy to check that word too, lol.

Oh ya, and I LOVE all of your decorations!! I gotta go me some purty little eggs like that.

Jen - Balancing beauty and bedlam said...

oh yes, I am going to be on the hunt for some of those cute ones in the first pictures after Easter. Hope they have some left. :)

Michelle said...

Love all the eggs - I'm seriously coveting the ones from Pier 1!

cmanning76 said...

I am definitely checking out Pier 1... Talk about deals!

Sweet Nothings said...

I LOVE your spring decorations! They are great! Definitely my style. I'm not a bunny person, so the eggs work great!

Have a blessed week!

Laurel @ Ducks in a Row said...

The blue soaps are too cute - I really love them.

HouseMama said...

I feel so classy now that I know you and I have the same Pier 1 dish of egg soaps! Aren't they cute? I'm re-doing a bathroom and that color of blue with brown accents. Thank you for the other ideas from Pier 1 - I'll have to check it out.

Sheryl said...

Oh, what lovely spring decorations I've been seeing in blog land! I hope next year I will have pretty things to share, too. I am still learning and taking notes!

Sandy Toes said...

So pretty~

I may have to pull out my eggs

Linda said...

Love all those pretty eggs. I see some pier 1 and pottery barn shopping in my future. I have only been in pottery barn once and found it so expensive. I guess they too have sales though. I see you didn't leave the glitter out. Cute! :)
Blessings,
Linda

foxxy said...

I like all your decorations. My favorite was the speckled eggs. Very pretty.

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Of course, you are forgiven, my dear Chris! HOpe you get to know that laptop (I hate working on laptops) and get yourself a mouse pronto.

So glad you joined the party!

Scooterblu's Whimsy~Rhonda said...

Hi! I just saw your blog over at Diane's and it looked really interesting! :) I love all your different eggs and how you have displayed them. It is all so pretty! I have the same candlesticks, they will be in my post today, later. {I've been blogging almost a year and it still takes me a long time to do a post, too! LOL!}

You have a delightful blog, so glad I found you! ~hugs, Rhonda :)

Kelli said...

Lil' Woman said...

Sarah said...

Goodness I need to get over to Pier 1, I have been so busy getting to know Hobby Lobby, I have been neglecting P1. ;)I love your Easter display!

Susan S. said...

I can NEVER get too much of Pier One, or for that matter, the Dollar Store. Ms. Bunny is Precious....she's very lucky you gave her a good home!

Té la mà Maria - Reus said...

Pretty pretty and I knew you would give us some bling~

Mimi Sue said...

Everything is looking mighty springish. I'm loving Pier 1 this year. Have you seen the bunnies on a stick? Mimi

Tanya said...

I had to stop over this morning because I knew that your blog would remind me of spring! Happy Spring!!

Sarahlcc♥ said...

Oh my, your egg wreath was such a steal of a deal! Which reminds me, it's time to put up the spring things! I've enjoyed my visit to your site. :-) Have a happy beginning of the season!

Barb said...

Nice spring post honey! L O V E the basket on the mantle. They are colorful and have specks too..I love specks. I almost forgot your egg purchase when we went to Birchrun. Looks really nice. Those blue soap eggs in your 1/2 bath look great. How come you didn't call and tell me you purchased a lap top. Don't you know I need alllll the details?
call me

You find the best bargains!!! All your spring decorations look wonderful.

cydlee61 said...

just discovered your blog and love it for so many reasons...i too used the idea of fabric on bulletin boards when teaching (on med leave hoping to return)...i could put it up and it would look nice for a couple of years or more whereas paper and that corrugated cardboard stuff always got so ratty looking so fast...of course i taught younger kids too...also i know you say you aren't a dog person...i wasn't either until we got our german shepherd and now i am in love with her...she is currently lying head in my lap as i type this...anyway i just wanted to comment that the moment i saw the first pic of your dog i was enchanted...he is gorgeous and i adore him!

PJ said...

Great shots! I had to get a mouse for my laptop too. That touch pad thing-y was made for someone, well, someone else.

restyled home said...

Chris, I have to tell you this: not only are you one of the most creative (yes, creative) women in blogland, but you are also hilarious to boot! I just got caught up with your posts (I am so behind on everyones)and I have enjoyed reading your funny dialogue as much as seeing all of the beautiful photos.

You are a gem...

Cheers,
Linda

Jo said...

Lara said...
