spring thing round up

I totally wanted to do a linky party with pictures of everyone’s Christmas decorations that are still up.

We could show our wreaths and our garlands and our red bows and our random ornaments hung from chandeliers.

Wouldn’t that be fun?

But then I realized that I would be the only one there.

Because you are amazing.

And so much more organized than me.

And you took down your wreaths in December…..and moved onto decorating for Spring…..because it’s umm…March.

So let’s have a Spring Fling linky party instead!

Spring Thing Graphic

Let’s start with some fun projects my incredibly talented friends (people who would never have a Christmas wreath in sight) have been sharing over the last few weeks.

    You aren't alone I just took my decrepit Christmas wreath off the door yesterday, and I haven't begun to decorate for Spring yet! I'll be looking through the links for some inspiration, now if I could just find a little extra time there too.....

    I have been voting, hope I have been geting it right! And....I bought egg-shaped doilies at the dollar store...they would look so cute on the canning jars with twine! (which I also have!!!!!( Horray for an after school project today. Boo for having to leave to go in 20 minutes :(

    Wow, what an array of inspiration. So fun checking them all out on this gloomy NC morning. I never remember to link up to parties, so I was excited to see this one, but alas is the place to link up hanging somewhere on the door next to my Christmas wreathe? It seems to have disappeared. (And yes, hosting Tasty Tuesday link up myself, I know this has happened to me too often. It could be my wifi?)

    Whew, so glad I'm not the only one who still has a pile of Christmas hanging around! I'm hiding mine inside a lampshade in the hallway, does that even make sense?!! And I'm dying over your project, yes we can SO tell which one is yours!!! You're a clever one, missy :)

    Ok, let's be honest here...while my decorations are down, yesterday I just realized two boxes are still sitting out in my lower level family room! Oh, the shame! Guess I haven't been in a hurrying because it's still snowing here...another 4"! Yikes! I voted for you, or what I thought was you! Good luck! ;)

    We are having a blizzard today so my holiday ice skate wreath on the mud room door unfortunately still screams Winter just like everything else in the view from my windows. Bliss

    I could have joined you with the leftover Christmas decor - wreath on my front door ;) Party for two?! Heading over to vote - wonder if I'll be able to guess which one is yours this time?

    I just found a Santa flying above my laundy room door. He has to go to the attic. He can be greatful for his tropical vacation in my attic over the summer. Going to go vote.

    It was lovely to meet you at the Midwest Meet Up. I just voted in TCWS and looked for the "bigger than Pottery Barn" entry. I think I know which delightful project you did. Fingers crossed for you! Michele PS We'll be driving through Kentucky this weekend, so I'll be looking for treasures on the side of the road. Hooray!
