A Spring Sampler
Spring is in the air, or at least we all wish it were! If you'd like to get rid of the winter doldrums and usher in some life to your home, here are some easy steps you can take now, before the crocuses bloom.
· Put out several bouquets and arrangements of "silk" flowers in bright colors. Throw in some variegated greenery and you have an instant brightener.
· Put away the woolen throws and bring out your lighter ones for a quick pick-me-up. The same goes for your table linens; it's not too early to dress your dining room for Memorial Day houseguests.
· If your draperies are heavy and dark, shop the sales for some sheers and taffeta panels. Discount stores are great resources for inexpensive panels and curtains. Find something light with a beaded fringe to add a little sparkle and a bit of whimsy.
· Scented candles are an easy way to lure your mind to tropical shores. If you'd rather not have an open flame, use candle chimneys or, better yet, a fragrance lamp that burns clean and can diffuse scent throughout your home.
Here you have four simple ways to entice your senses and bring some spring into your home.
