but as the opportunity to do what is right.”

    Saturday Sparks — Inspiring Your Spring

    Spring has finally arrived here in the Midwest, in truth and deed. The birds are singing, the forsythia is blooming and buds are popping out all over the trees. Since today is the first full day of Spring, I thought it fitting to share a bit of decorating inspiration related to the occasion. Last year I did a whole post about Spring mantels; unfortunately it didn’t make it through the crash, so you will see a few repeats if you were a reader at that time. If you weren’t, then it’s your lucky day. Enjoy the inspiration, and as always feel free to send me your own favorite ideas.
