Branching Out

With the low temperatures and endless rain Vancouver has received these last few weeks I find myself dreaming of Spring!  Although I'm thankful to live in a city where we are able to enjoy four seasons I have to say I'm partial to warmer days, lighter jackets and open windows. For me, nothing says Spring is here like the sight of a beautiful tree in blossom (my dream is to live on a street lined with huge cherry trees).  When thinking of Spring decor for the home, flowering branches are a perfect way to bring in a little "new life".

Whether your home is modern or traditional, shabby or sleek a vase filled with flowering branches in yellow, white or pink is a perfect, inexpensive way to make a big impact.

Although I prefer real flowers, I will make an exception in this case.  You can find gorgeous, true to life branches at Micheals or your local HomeSense or HomeGoods store so you can enjoy the beauty of Spring even if the weather isn't co-operating!


  1. I love them so much ! I am thinking of jazzing mine up in time for Easter ... mine are like cherry blossom so yummy and sweet !

  2. Love this! Hoping to "branch" out and add some of these fun designs to my home!!!

  3. Great idea!! Never thought of doing this :) so modern and chic!

  4. I have to laugh..... while walking the dog today I saw some gorgeous pussy willow branches and I wanted to steal some, no really, I would've nobody was around but the problem was a very large ditch. All of the branches reached across a friggin ditch. It's like the branches were saying "We dare you, come get us ..... and fall into the ditch while you're at it" Anyways, I didn't end up getting any. I have some company coming over on Friday night so I guess I'll just go and buy some :-(

    1. That is awesome! I can picture it now...all for the cause of decorating:)

  5. I can't wait until spring will finally arrive. This weather here is CRAZY! Thanks for the comment - love your artwork too:)
