I suppose a case could be made for each of the seasons.
After all, summer brings lazy days and popsicles.
Fall has that crisp breeze and candy colored squash.
But spring brings a freshness. A new start, bird chirping, perfect weather, not too hold, not too cold Happiness.
Spring means it’s not too hot to jump on the trampoline.
In full costume, no less.
High kicking robots battle dinosaurs of various shapes and sizes.
The littlest right in the middle of it all.
Because he thinks he’s 7. Instead of 1.
Spring is an overflowing antique baby bathtub of succulents.
Spring is the perfect time to try on a pair of muscles.
And to practice standing.
And to wear the 20+ year old costume your grandma made for your dad when he was a boy.
The grass starts growing almost faster than dad can mow it, and it serves as a perfect backdrop to a tub of costumes. Just take your pick.
And while she picks just the right outfit, these keep right on keeping on.
The littlest right smack in the middle of it all.
Over the years, I’ve found a love of decorating my mantle.
It’s a simple way to be festive without going all out and having to add a ton of stuff all over the house (although I totally do that at Christmas.)
And I’ve found that I prefer to decorate for full seasons rather than holidays. Holidays tend to whiz by so fast that by the time I get my stuff up, it’s practically time to pull it all down again.
So rather than decorate my mantle for Easter, I stick with a longer lasting “Spring”.
And you can even choose from a wide variety of custom frames.
They show up on your door step all ready to display.
A succulent. An ampersand. Perfection.
I also got this pretty peacock feather drawing.
Next to roses from my garden it makes me happy.
The high quality of the print is amazing. It looks like a real painting. For a fraction of the price.
I love that I can bring some of the lightness of spring into my living room without resorting to plastic eggs and stuffed bunnies.
Also, I think I need to go back and get this print too. Because it’s just SO happy.
