Hello, Hello! Spring is in the air around here! Well, I thought it was until I looked out the window today at noon and saw pretty snow flurries here in the South. They melted pretty fast once they touched the ground. The birdies are a bit confused!
I sure hope Spring is getting there in your parts of town. I have to tell you straight up. Spring is actually my least favorite season FOR DECORATING! I never have been into it much.
Today, I am sharing all things Dollar tree, thrifty Spring craft and home decor ideas!
IF you would prefer not to scroll all the way down this post, I created a thumbnail gallery that is easy to scroll through
HERE. Just give it a second to load once you get there.
The reason I am not fond of the season, is mostly because I am not fond of pastels and pinks. I enjoy the season itself for the most part. The flowers, the birds, and all the pretty trees. I love to start digging in the dirt and sprucing things up after a long winter season. I can live without the pollen, but otherwise it is a pretty time of year here in the Carolina’s.
I was surprised though to look back and see all the decorating and crafts I have done since the beginning. I thought I would share them. It’s fun to see how I have evolved some. You will see the difference as well. My crafting skills have somewhat improved:)
I am lumping in all things thrifty in this post as well. Not necessarily ALL from Dollar tree. I pretty much consider any home decor under $10.00 to be budget friendly, wouldn’t you agree?
All links to go directly to the project are highlighted below the pictures.
Let’s see, first up are some throw backs from years ago.

Thanks so much for walking down memory lane with me. I hope some of these Spring ideas have inspired you for the season. Whew, I did way more than I even remembered! Have some more Spring tricks up my sleeve, so stay tuned.
If you are new to me, welcome! I sure hope to see you back again.
Feel free to browse my galleries down below.
You sure make some cute crafts! You don’t seem to have a Pin It on your images. I saw it at the bottom, but once I’ve reached the bottom, with my attention span, I’ve forgotten what I wanted to pin! Oh well. I’ll try to remember. I’m not a fan of pastels either.
I should have one on there Brenda. It must be glitchy!
I see a lot of fun things you’ve made and I am a firm believer in recycling and upcycling just as your are. The printable is so sweet. Thanks and thanks for all the inspiration! I don’t mind pastels, but I’ve decided spring is the time for brights. Bright greens for the new leaves, blue, purples, reds, yellows and oranges for many of the spring bulbs and shrubs. I don’t know, maybe I’m turning gaudy in my “old age”, but I really love the pop of bright colors instead of pale in my surroundings. I never was much one for real frilly pink things! LOL
Have a lovely dinner and a Happy Valentine’s Day, Debbie!
Thanks Kris! I agree with you. I love the fun bright colors, those soft muted tones don’t do a thing for me:)
I like to decorate for Spring cause I LOOOOVE bunnies! It gives me an excuse to get them all out. You are the most creative person I know, I swear! Your projects and IDEAS are amazing! The new site is loading pretty fast for me. My computer is horrible so you can’t go by me:) Happy V’s day tomorrow!!!
Thank you Pinky! Happy Valentine’s day to you too. xo
I love the post. I didn’t remember some of the items. The little dollar tree basket with the bandana is so cute. It makes a nice quick gift to take to someone. The bunny buckets are adorable.
I always love your posts and your creative thrifty projects.
Holy cow, you’ve done a lot of great stuff! Spring is a long way off up here in NJ. We are going down to -1 tonight, but all of your springy projects cheered me up!
