Decorating for Spring on a Budget

Where I live signs of spring are showing up all over; the beautiful spring trees are in full bloom.

I've also added some spring decor in my home.

I created this cute little cloche by taking a cheese dome and painting the base black. I then added some moss and a birds nest purchased for $1.99 at wal-mart. The eggs I found at a cute local shop.

This little vignette sits on my dinning room desk.
I started out with this.....
I painted the pear with an ivory spray paint. Then I added the cute little plate my daughter gave me as a gift. Finally adding a Goodwill plate I found for 99 cents. The little flowers were left over from my daughters wedding.

I love the colors in this little vignette!

I created this with my thrift store finds. Isn't the little table runner cute! It was only $1.49 and the candle sticks and greenery pot were previous garage sale find for a total of $2.50.The cheese dome 49 cents and little blue from a thrift store. The place mat was 13 cents, making the total cost....under five dollars.

Lastly my dinning room table runner and at home America candle holder were garage sale finds last spring. The runner came with a price of only 50 cents and and the at home America candle holder (new with tags on it) for a mere two dollars.
