Welcome home, Spring

Updated: Apr 2

Birds are chirping, flowers blooming and bee's are buzzing.


As the clouds part and the temperatures rise, signaling the arrival of Spring, we find ourselves emerging from our Winter hibernation with a sense of renewal. Just as our beings undergo a transformation with the changing seasons, our homes also evolve to reflect the spirit of Spring. The cozy ambiance of Winter, with its soft lights, warm knits, and comforting rituals, gives way to a desire for sunlight, fresh produce, and outdoor activities. It's a time for longer walks, tending to gardens, and rejuvenating our living spaces to embrace the energy of the season.


Here are five ways to breathe new life into your home for the Spring season:


Plant Flower Seeds: Planting flower seeds is a delightful and rewarding activity that can bring a burst of color and life to your home throughout the summer and fall seasons. By sowing a variety of flower seeds, you can create a beautiful array of blooms that will not only brighten up your living space but also provide endless opportunities for creating stunning floral arrangements. Whether you prefer vibrant sunflowers, delicate daisies, or elegant roses, planting seeds allows you to cultivate a garden that reflects your personal style and taste. With a little love, care, and attention, your home can be transformed into a vibrant oasis filled with the beauty of nature's bounty.


Open up your windows: As you nurture your flower seeds and watch them grow into a colorful tapestry of blooms, don't forget to invite the fresh spring air into your home by opening the windows. The cool breeze that wafts through the open windows carries with it the sweet scents of blooming flowers and the chirping of birds, creating a tranquil and refreshing atmosphere indoors. Opening the windows not only allows for better air circulation but also helps to bring the outdoors inside, connecting you with the beauty of nature right from the comfort of your home. So, as you enjoy the sight of your flourishing flower garden, take a moment to savor the joys of spring by letting the cool air and natural symphony of sounds fill your living space with a sense of peace and rejuvenation.



Visit the farmer's market: After immersing yourself in the beauty of your blooming flower garden and enjoying the refreshing spring air flowing through your home, why not take a trip to the farmers market to bring home some fresh produce? Visiting the farmers market is not only a wonderful way to support local farmers and artisans but also a great opportunity to stock up on a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, and other delectable treats. From vibrant berries and crisp greens to artisanal cheeses and baked goods, the farmers market offers a cornucopia of flavors and textures to elevate your culinary creations.



Choosing locally grown and seasonal produce ensures freshness and quality while allowing you to connect with the community and the land from which your food comes. Whether you're seeking ingredients for a garden-fresh salad, a homemade jam with ripe berries, or a flavorful dish made with locally sourced ingredients, the farmers market is a treasure trove of culinary inspiration waiting to be explored. So, grab your reusable bags and head to the market to discover the bounty of the season and bring home a taste of farm-fresh goodness to complement the beauty of your home-grown blooms.


Swap your winter wools for cotton or linen: As you return from the farmers market with a bounty of fresh produce to inspire your culinary creations, it's the perfect time to transition your home from the cozy comforts of winter to the breezy lightness of spring and summer. One way to embrace the change of seasons is by swapping out heavy winter wool and fabrics for light and airy linens throughout your home. Replace thick blankets and wool throws with soft, breathable linens that exude a sense of freshness and relaxation.


By incorporating linen curtains, tablecloths, and cushion covers, you can instantly update your living spaces with a touch of effortless comfort. The natural texture and drape of linen create a laid-back and inviting space. As you adorn your home with linens that capture the essence of spring and summer, you'll create a harmonious balance between indoor coziness and outdoor vitality, making every corner of your abode a sanctuary of style and serenity.


Get fresh flowers: Consider hosting a gathering to showcase your floral arrangements, culinary creations made with fresh produce, and newly adorned home spaces with loved ones. Sharing the fruits of your labor, both literal and metaphorical, with those closest to you fosters a sense of connection, joy, and gratitude. Whether you gift a bouquet of freshly picked flowers, a homemade meal crafted from farmers market finds, or a cozy linen throw to a friend or family member, the act of sharing brings warmth and happiness to both the giver and the recipient. By extending kindness and generosity to others, you create a ripple effect of positivity and appreciation that enhances the beauty and meaning of the season.


So, as you revel in the delights of planting flower seeds, embracing spring's freshness, exploring the farmers market, and refreshing your home with linens, remember that the true essence of these experiences lies in sharing them with those you cherish. May your home be filled with love, laughter, and the spirit of giving as you celebrate the beauty of the changing seasons and the joys of community and connection.


Happy Spring, friends!
