Getting My Green On

Hello everyone!

With the time change happening this weekend (ugh!) and the sun shining brightly, I decided it was time to fluff up the house with a little greenery.  So, I made a few changes using plants around the house.  

It all started when I decided to fluff up the centerpiece on my dining room table.  I added some (faux) flowers in my urn along with the wispy fern greenery that was already in it.  

It says instant Spring to me!





Then I filled an urn in the family room with some more wispy greenery.  This one is a (faux) maiden hair fern.


Over in the sitting room, I added a white urn with a (faux) asparagus fern.


Can you tell I like faux?  LOL!

And last but not least, I placed a little wooden planter with a moss covered sphere on top in my wire basket in the family room.  I made that moss covered ball too.  I just used a grapevine ball that I already had and hot glued sheet moss all over it.  Easy peasy (but messy)!  


So now I have a "little" Spring color around the house to offset all of the neutrals everywhere else.  I like it!

Hope all of you have a wonderful "Spring" like weekend!

Thanks for stopping by.

I love all things FAUX!!!! I am resolved that I won't be decorating for Easter this year....but I AM going home tomorrow so maybe I can pull some SPRING out of the storage building (that's where ALL my seasons live!) and brighten up the corner where I live - at times - for a few days - ever once in awhile!

Rosemary@villabarnes said...

Very nice, Kelly. A touch of greenery always perks up a room.

Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage said...

Your home is always so beautiful!! I love all your greenery! I've been adding a lot of real grenery to my home, but it remains to be seen wether or not it stays alive! :)
p.s. Got another email from Joss & Main and they ran out of both sets of prints I ordered. boo hoo
They gave me a $10 credit, but I would much rather have the prints. :(

Vickie @ Ranger 911 said...

Your house is ready for spring with all that yummy green. Your faux plants are very realistic looking. You could have kept quiet and we'd never know!

I'm glad you got all your shoveling done so you could get to work making everything pretty indoors. :)

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Love your addition of green, Kelly! I go the faux route, too, since I don't do too well with houseplants anymore. Some of them look very good anyway, so except for a little dusting now and again I don't have to fuss with them.

Babs said...

Love your faux plants and vignettes..especially the maidenhair fern one.
