Spring Updates

My house always feels a little dull after the holidays are over and winter sets in.  All the sparkly decorations are gone and things start looking a little boring.  Once the weather warms up and spring approaches I'm always ready for something new.  That's why I was so glad when Coupons.com reached out to me and several other bloggers to hear about our favorite spring trends.  


When I think of spring I automatically think of bright colors.  So I decided to add some color to my otherwise neutral living room.  I think most of us try to refresh and brighten things up this time of year.  I'm loving yellow right now, particularly a bright lemony shade of it.  So I took that thought and ran with it.  First I went to Coupons.com and searched for Amazon coupon codes.  Actually, I always check for coupon codes before I purchase anything online and I'm usually able to save some money.  Then, I browsed Amazon for pillow covers.  I didn't see any ready made ones that I liked so I decided to make my own.  I chose this fabric with this trim for two of them and then this fabric for the other one.  I added zippers to them so it's easy to slip them on and off when the seasons change or I'm ready for something different.   



Fresh flowers are another great addition for spring!














I love the citrusy yellow paired with a more natural trim.  



Now for the fun part.  You have a chance to win a gift card to West Elm or Target!  Two of my favorite places.  Just use the form below to enter.  This giveaway will end on April 7th.
