It’s almost April and time to do some Easter decorating with bunnies and blooms! I have always loved adding lots of decorative bunnies and fresh flowers around my home for spring. Thanks to some great new spring hashtags on Instagram I was inspired to create a blog post to share some of the ways my talented IG friends have added Easter joys to their homes with bunnies and blooms too.
Here are some of my favorites!
Go ahead and grab a pretty teacup to sip some tea (or coffee) and get ready to swoon over some amazing Easter decor ideas from Instagram, beginning with Lora @driftwood_decor. She always has perfectly styled spaces and vignettes with awesome accessories. I adore everything about this photo! Her heirloom teacup and little bunny picture nestled behind a “thicket” of sweet pink blossoms is so darling. If you love this photo as much as I do then you will definitely want to visither shop,Driftwood Decor.You are certain to find some beautiful items to use in your decor too!
Hello Spring! Today it was 80 degrees here in Eastern Kentucky and just a brief stroll around the yard had me dreaming spring gardening dreams! I am now ready to start making plans for some changes in the landscape that will take place later this spring and early summer. My thyme, oregano and mint is already growing rapidly and filling the March air with a delightful herbal fragrance. Even some of my succulents have survived one of the mildest winters we have had on record. There are a few daffodils left, and dainty grape hyacinths are popping up beside them too. Everything is greening up and gardening time will be here before we know it! I have some ideas for what I would like to change in the landscape this year but I thought it might be nice to take a look at some older pictures for inspiration.

Shiplap is definitely one of the hottest trends in home decor these days thanks to the show Fixer Upper and the popularity of farmhouse style. I originally thought the craze would have died off by now, but shiplap is still showing up in all types of homes and it seems to work well with many different decorating styles. I don’t really decorate solely around trends, and it took me a while to warm up to the “shiplap fad” as I called it. I repeatedly tried to convince myself I would not fall for shiplap but there were just too many beautiful rooms popping up in the decor world. I still didn’t want to commit to covering my walls with an expensive wood treatment that I would be sick of in two years once the fad was over. In addition I didn’t really think I had anywhere to use shiplap.
Spring has sprung and it is time to change up my chalkboard! I know we have been seeing chalkboards for a while now in home decor, but I am still crazy about them! When they became “all the rage” a few years ago I fell in love with using them as decorative accents, but I figured their popularity would be short lived. Instead, creative decorators and crafters are continuing to come up with new designs for chalkboards using drawings and gorgeous hand lettering techniques. Old furniture pieces, windows, mirrors, and all sorts of fun junk can be transformed into beautiful works of art with the simple addition of some chalkboard paint.
