Just a Little Bit of Spring

After getting to a point where I accepted I wouldn’t decorate for this Easter I got sick.  I laid on the couch for a day and a half and when I finally got up to do something I gravitated towards my Easter bins.  I believe it was the fact I had to do nothing for a day, that I let go of my to-do list and simply allowed myself to go through those bins.  It was all very soothing {as it should be—decorating should not be a chore, at least in my case}.

I only picked a few items that I loved.  Trying to put it all out was too overwhelming.  I wanted simple.  And thoughtful.  For so long I just put out stuff.  And it was cute stuff.  And properly placed.  But I like having just a few things and letting them have the spotlight.

I do always love Spring though.  The colors mesh well with my already existing d├ęcor.  And something I am learning with the other holidays…to find holiday items that work well with what I already have.

Each item makes me smile.  And the idea that they will be out for only a few weeks is very appealing.  I know, who have I become?  I think I am still in organizing/simplifying stage.  So the idea of just a few things out keeps me from feeling like I am adding clutter to the house.

I am finding that it is fun to really love a few things instead of really liking a whole bunch of things.  The less I have the more I enjoy.  Story of my life right now I guess.
