6 things to do at home to welcome Spring

Spring is fast approaching in the US and that’s a fun thing to know after a
long and cold winter.  Isn’t it?  There are a few things we can do to
get into the Spring mood and welcome the pretty days of blooming flowers and full
leafy trees. 

Clean your windows from all the whitish marks of snow that get accumulated
throughout the winter and let the glorious morning sun come on in without any
interruption.   I remember when growing up that was one of the first
things my mom used to do come Spring and she still does it.

While you’re at it go ahead and place some potted herbs on the
windowsills as Mark D Sikes did in his home.  Herbs such as mint, parsley, rosemary or basil will not only
look pretty but they will also smell like heaven.   Especially mint- remember, you can always put it in your Mojitos.

Remove that heavy and sheering rug.  If you prefer a carpet in the
area, replace it with a cowhide or a jute rug.  Jute is softer than sisal
to the touch.

With Spring comes the occasional chilly night but everything made of wool to
cover ourselves will still be too much.  Pull a light cotton throw out of your
closet and keep it on your sofa or buy
an Otomi throw
with its colorful hand embroidered designs is perfect to
bring that pup of color home for Spring.

Replace your heavy curtains for lighter ones.  It’s great to have thick
and darker curtains during winter to help keep out the cold but in warmer days
where everything gets lighter and fresher why not our curtains.  Panels
that you can buy at home stores are ideal and easy!

And last but not least bring those new flowers inside the
house.  Some people prefer carefully done flower arrangements while others
prefer to have them organically placed in a base with water as if they were
freshly picked from the garden.  I think a cluster of fruits or vegetables
on top of a dining table also look great.  Enjoy!
