Here in Boston we got our first real taste of spring on Monday when temperatures were in the high 50’s. It’s been a long winter and it was like the whole city of Boston collectively came out of hibernation. Feeling the heat of the sun definitely lifts your spirits and can inspire changes in your space.
Every year (right around the same time that the spring cleaning bug hits) I get an urge to buy a zillion house plants and bring out my brightest bowls. These Ball jars are one of my favorite vintage purchases and make for laid back vases in the spring and summer. Around Easter floral selections improve and bouquets are reasonably priced after the holiday. I recommend Trader Joe’s for an inexpensive bunch — a lot of flowers are just $5.
It’s becoming a tradition that each spring I buy myself a new succulent for my work space. This one is “Pachyveria glauca” meaning “Little Jewel.” Succulents are good air purifiers and are relatively simple to care for. I love the blu-ish tones in this one!
I think bringing touches of the outdoors in helps to signify spring. How do you prep your home for the new season?
