Seeing this sign means Spring is coming and that solidifies 2 things for me today - 1: deciding to not wear tights with my skirt is now a justified decision and 2: starting to put up Easter decor is A-OK!
Easter, for me, is no where near Christmas when it comes to the amount of decor I attempt to shove into my small home. And while I am known for devouring entire packages of Peeps in one sitting, I am not known for enjoying the pastel colors that Easter is traditionally known for. No offense if you do, it's just not my cup of tea.
Every year I attempt to find neutral/non-traditional Easter decor and every year, fall short. Last year, I took matters into my own hands... I scooped up 3 foam eggs at Michaels after the holiday- scoring 3 different sizes for a total of $3 (Love 80% off). They were originally pastel pink, blue and purple - which translates to no, way, and Jose.
Enter Easter 2013, my kids and acrylic paint!
2 kids: one 11 and one 7
Paint: (I chose)cream, grey and chalkboard black
3 eggs (one for each of us)
