Ruthie’s Easter/Spring Decorating Favorites

Spring is seen as a time of growth, renewal, of new life (both plant and animal) being born.  We are all starting to think about Easter and the renewal that brings to our lives.  I love this time of year because we gather with our families and friends to celebrate the resurrection of our savior.   I love this quote:
 
“Our Lord has written the promise of resurrection, not only in books alone, but in every leaf in springtime.” Martin Luther
 
Beautiful reminder as we watch things start to bloom and blossom.
 
 
Speaking of needing renewal, I’ve been diagnosed with Asthma which has put me in bed for a few days to try and get myself well after an ER visit and many, many breathing treatments.  Trying to figure out what triggers the attacks.  In the meantime, I’m looking at it as a time for rest and trying to appreciate that.  It’s hard for me to sit still but I’m learning that it’s necessary for our bodies to recover.

  So….what have I been doing while in bed?  You guessed it, catching up on Spring Ideas.  I’ve put together some images that are my favorites of the year.  For Easter, some like a formal table, some take their families to the park and some of us barbecue!  I’ve picked a few of my favorite Spring and Easter decor ideas to get your ideas flowing while you plan for this special time.  Thought I’d save you some Pinterest searching time.

but….my question of the day is, what do you think about this mesh ribbon?  I’m not that crazy about it but it seems to be everywhere in the crafting world.  I’d love to hear your personal opinion in my comments feed.
