A Fun Spring Craft Project: Leaf Print Easter Eggs

Easter Egg & Spring Decorating Ideas

These leaf print Easter eggs are QUITE adorable, aren’t they? I want to make them.

And, I still love the tea stained blue speckled eggs I featured last year.

Do you dye Easter or spring eggs?

After a week of rain, snow, hail AND glorious sun in the NW in this first week of spring, I’m pretty much ready for gardening weather. My goal at some point later this spring is to begin work on my very tiny front yard which is currently basically a muddy patch of soil. I’m so excited about transforming it!

I’m planning on bringing in some gravel for a little pathway through the yard and creating some garden beds to fill with evergreens and creeping plants. Then I’ll finish it off with a bench or place to sit. I think it is a manageable outdoor summer project for me this year.

There is something so rewarding about working on a little patch of ground and turning it in to a pretty garden, don’t you think?

And wouldn’t it be pure bliss if you had a garden shed like the one below? Well, yes it would! I snapped that pic this week while strolling through one of my favorite little garden shops, Ravenna Gardens at University Village in Seattle. I love the copper roof on that shed!

To get us in the mood for spring gardening, I had my daughter Courtney put together a collage (above) of some favorite spring gardening items. So much cuteness to behold!

Since it may be a little early perhaps for some of us to actually go outside and garden, maybe you’d like a little inspiration for bringing nature into your home decor or spring fashion to your closet?

Whether you are planning to be inside or outside, I hope you have the perfect spring-like weather for your weekend!

Happy Friday! What are your plans this weekend?
{Our plans for Saturday include staying inside and painting some walls!}
