Good morning! Spring has arrived in Texas, so this weekend I cleaned up my front porch and added a few decorations.

A favorite new find from Michaels.

I redid my entryway this past fall and went for a more simple look.

I'm going to be updating my blog sidebar in the next couple of weeks, so there will be more house pictures coming up. Thank you for stopping by for a visit and Happy March!

Kelli, I'm so jealous that it's springy there. Still pretty cold here in Oklahoma City. Your porch looks very welcoming. I love the birdy touches.

Cherrie said...

Beautiful! I love your wreath! I love anything with birds!

Wendi said...

We still have snow on the ground, but I am ready to break out the spring items. I love how you added the house numbers at the bottom of the door! I had never noticed that before. Enjoy your spring weather.

Hi, dear:

It's been a long time. How are you? That is a very lovely entryway, thanks for sharing.

As you may know, Chile has suffered the most terrible earthquake in 50 years. If you want to help, you can find some useful links at my blog http://ablogbykittyvalerie.blogspot.com/

Hugs from Chile,
Val

Your wreath is gorgeous, I love the colors, birdnest and the pretty ribbons too. The birdcage on the table just made me drool. Love it. Such a welcoming sight. Your entry table vignette is gorgeous too. So pretty. You should link this to Table Top Tuesdays tonight. It is a party for all kinds of vignettes, and this certainly qualifies. Love it. Hugs, Marty

Hi Kelli! I love the new look of your blog. The pictures you shared today are lovely. I have always wanted a bird house but wasn't quite sure what to do with it. Now you have given me a simple and beautiful idea, Thanks.

Hi, just surfed in, I live in TX too (but am originally from England) wanted to say hello. Your entry way and porch are so pretty. We had a lovely warm weekend here too (Austin) but it rained today and is rather windy tonight. I can't wait for Spring.

Lara said...

Simply beautiful! Love that little egg nest!

Kerri said...

Kelli I love your new decorations. I love the little bird nest in the cage, it's so cute! Your entry way is beautiful, I love the color of your walls!! Makes me want to do a bit of sprucing up here, but we are still under snow, and spring is far off for us!! :) I think it will be melting fast as we are suppose to have 40 degree temps! :) Have a wonderful day!!

Tina Leigh said...

Kelli I love all the new looks you have going on! Did you or Phillip do your blog? I love it! I love the house too.

Kim~HomeIsWhereTheHeartIs said...

Everything is so pretty! We still have several feet of snow here in southwestern PA.

Frazzled Mom said...

Kelli - I'm loving that bell! I'm thinking you are giving me permission to put out my Spring decorations! I'm ready to take my "between seasons" decorations down and commit to Spring! I'm so excited for my favorite season.

Michelle said...

What a welcoming front entry! This is my first comment on your blog Kelli, I call Australia home! I love visiting your Texas culture!

Much Blessings

Hello, Kelli!
One nice thing about my having been too busy for blog-surfing in the last couple of weeks, is that there are so many lovely posts to read as I go around catching up! Your daughter's snow-scene painting is a treasure! I wish I had your inspiration to get into the kitchen and make such lovely treats for my family...
Thank you for sharing all these lovely things with us all!

The guestbook gives a nice touch to the hall table !!

Jenn said...

So pretty! Oh, I have missed your blog so much! I am so happy to be moved into our new house and able to peek at my favorite blogs again.

We've been in moving mode for 3 months where we were originally supposed to move to GA in Jan, but ended up in upstate NY just this week. WHEW!

That little nest in the wreath is just perfect. It welcomes Spring!

Kelli~ What a blessing you are to me and I'm sure to the other readers as well. You have made your house a beautiful, welcoming home and being a home-schooling mom myself, can certainly appreciate all it entails to teach as well as maintain a lovely haven for your family!
So looking forward to hearing more from you and seeing the wonderful ideas, recipes, etc. that you are so generously sharing with us!

just wondering if your entryway still looks like this and if anyone signs your guestbook. I always forget about stuff like that, it's more for looks
