We're Going Green!

Top of the morning blogging friends!

Things have been busy around here lately!
First, have you entered the giveaway over at The Foley Fam - {unedited} yet? If you do, you could win a pom pom ring hand made by me and a bunch of other goodies!! Don't miss out! Hurry up and enter and then come right back! {I'll wait}...

...

... AND Welcome back!! {Good luck! And if you really just entered - I hope you win!!} :-D

Next, I thought I'd share a few ways I decorate this time of year! Because life has been so full of fun, I didn't even get to post Valentine's Day, so I thought I'd do a little 'before and after' because we're already seeing GREEN over here!




I just do little touches around my house for these in between holiday's, but even the little things can make a big difference! And I know my kids enjoy seeing our house change too!

During February my side table looks like this:


{The large printable is from Tattered & Inked, the candlestick jars were inspired by eighteen25; the birdcage I bought last spring at Michael's for $1! Woot woot!}

Now my table looks like this!


{The printable I've had since last year - before I started blogging and didn't even think to track where I found it. So bummed! If you know where it came from, let me know!}


My kids got their Valentine's Day table decorated that morning too-

 {Hot chocolate with whipped cream and heart sprinkles!}

{Treats & little prizes set at their table with a heart shaped straw! 
Which of course sipped up strawberry milk!}

I can't wait to surprise them on St. Patrick's Day morning! And I always try a green food theme! :) Hmmm, green grapes, green eggs, kiwi's, can you think of any other  green foods?


I also change out my apothecary jar in my kitchen...

From Valentine's Day red...



To a lucky green!




And my 'mantel' {since I don't really have one yet} went from this...



To this!!

{That Lucky printable is from the TomKat Studio! I added the "Us"}

And finally, my wreath was also decked out for Valentine's Day,



...but I still haven't figured out how I want to decorate her for St. Patrick's Day. I have some shamrocks, another little bunting and I might try to do something with these straws--


How about it? Do you have any creative ideas for my wreath? {If I know you, and I think I do, I'm pretty sure you're creative!}

But for now, my door will have this little chalkboard sign!



I made it out of a $1 chalkboard sign I bought at Michaels, I cut out the frame shape {by hand, by the way. This girl needs to win a silhouette!} from sticky-backed foam and glued that little decal on from one of those straws shown above! What do you think? This little frame is quickly becoming one of my favorite green decor items! :) Thanks for reading and indulging in my decor today!

How 'bout you? What is your favorite St. Patrick's Day decoration you like in your home?

I dig the green transformation. I never thought to use colored cupcake liners to fill a jar like that. I'd love for you to share all your green ideas at my St. Patty's link party. :)
