Spring is right around the corner!  Can you believe it?  Soon we will start seeing signs of life.  The crocus will start blooming, the irises and tulips will start popping up, the grass will start turning green, and the leaves will start budding on the trees!  I so love spring!

I’m sure you all know that another thing about spring is that it’s time for spring cleaning! Yes, time to clear out those winter blues and bring the life and color of spring into your home!  I have a few simple home décor ideas to bring springtime to your home!

I wanted to update this post because there are some new items I would like to share with you and some of the items from last year are no longer available. So I hope you enjoy my new picks!

Quilt Racks

Let’s start by putting away those winter items that kept us warm and cozy! That beautiful quilt you snuggled into can now be placed on a quilt rack!  Unfortunately, Plow & Hearth are no longer carrying this quilt rack, so I hope you picked one up last year because they are wonderful for displaying a beautiful quilt!


Braided Baskets

We also need to put away those delightful afghans and throws that we wrapped around us while the snow was blowing outside! Why not use a basket that is the color of spring! These braided Polypro baskets are perfect for the job!

Crafted in America, these Floral Garden Braided Baskets are flat braided using texturized polypropylene yarns, which create a wool-like finish and make the basket stronger and more flexible. With a woven polypro core, these heavy-weight braids will always retain their shape and strength.

These baskets add country flair to any room of your house and serves as a handy holder for knitting material, blankets and more.

Made with pride in the USA by Rhody Rugs, a family run company.

  • Indoor/outdoor polypropylene construction
  • Flat-braided for strength and durability
  • Country accent for any room
  • Handles for carrying items to and fro
  • Stain-repellent, will not fade, rot or mildew
  • Easy to clean! Just hose down and air dry
  • Made in the USA by Rhody Rugs

Window Treatments

Now let’s think about our windows. When spring starts peeking through the cold nights and the smell of spring is in the air, I always want to throw open the windows and take a deep breath! I also love to put light, airy window treatments on my windows. Look at this beautiful tie-up shade!


A beautiful blend of embroidery and clipped fabrics on a faux linen background add interest and dimensions to our Hydrangea Balloon Tie-Up Shade. Four columns of rings sewn onto the back allow it to be adjusted to six different heights. Sheer, easy-care polyester offers privacy while letting in the light. Machine washable.

  • Easy-care, 100% polyester
  • Faux linen background
  • Embroidered hydrangeas add interest and dimension
  •  4 columns of rings sewn on back allow for custom height adjustment
  • Coordinates with our Hydrangea Sheer Panels, sold separately (#34774, #34775, #34776)
  • Machine washable


I think these sheers are absolutely stunning!


Add elegance to your windows with these beautiful Hydrangea Sheer Panels. The delicate embroidered hydrangeas add interest and dimension to the classic semi-sheer fabric. You’ll love the airy, flowing style that offers some privacy while still letting in filtered light. 100% polyester; dry clean. Imported.

Patio Ideas

I know as spring approaches, I will have a very strong desire to be outside! I love the outdoors in the spring! Here’s a couple of ideas for the patio!

A simple yet unique metal wreath with the color of spring –


Our handmade Blue Floral Metal Wreath adds serenity to your porch, front door or backyard.

Each bloom is hand-cut and hand-painted in beautiful, dimensional detail. The subtle shades of blue will bring you peace and harmony, indoors or out. Made by artisans in Bali from recycled metal – each wreath is a unique piece of art.

  • Made of painted, recycled metal
  • Blue hued decorative wreath
  • 3D flower design for added depth
  • Use indoors or outside
  • Handmade in Bali

Please, please try to sit, enjoy and breathe!

For porch, covered patio or yard, our Easy Care Resin Wicker Swing means real summer comfort. You’ll love its clean lines, timeless style and inviting design. But the best part is that it’s beautifully hand-woven in all-weather resin on a sturdy powder-coated steel frame for long life and low maintenance. Store in the off-season to extend its longevity. Cushions not included.

  • All-weather easy care wicker swing
  • Beautiful wicker swing has timeless style

And Don’t Forget the Pet!

Although not necessarily just for spring, I know when I am ready to get outside and enjoy watching spring “spring” to life, my little dog, Lola, does too! Why not have that leash ready to go!


Here’s a great way to keep leashes, collars and other canine gear in one place and ready for any activity. The whimsical bone design features three wooden hooks and whatever personalization you choose.

Use it indoors or out – it’s custom-crafted from eco-friendly recycled aluminum with a hand-painted all-weather finish. A great idea for your own home or a thoughtful gift for your favorite dog lover.

  • Keeps leashes and collars handy and ready for use
  • Eco-friendly recycled aluminum with an all-weather finish for use indoors or out
  • Durable and rust-resistant
  • Personalize with up to 12 characters/spaces
  • Easy to mount – hardware included
  • Quality made in the USA


And after a long, hard day playing in the spring flowers, my little Lola is worn out! A great place to relax would be this pet bed!

Cats and dogs alike will love cozying up in the Sherpa Puff Ball Pet Bed. The beanbag style invites your furry friend to nestle in, while the plush, zippered Sherpa cover removes for easy washing.

  • Bean-bag style pet bed
  • Made of 100% polyester
  • Zippered Sherpa cover removes for washing
  • Easy-care cover is machine washable

Spring Decorations

I found one more idea that I think you will love. It’s called a bulb gift garden and would be perfect in any home!


Our Fuchsia Tulips and Hyacinths Flower Bulb Gift Garden is a special way to surprise and delight anyone! This vibrant garden is a living, growing gift they’re sure to love. A unique way to celebrate birthday, anniversary or any occasion.

Eight gorgeous 8 Synaeda Amor Tulips are joined by two vibrant, fragrant Woodstock Hyacinths and 12 Pink Giant Glory of the Snow.

Pre-planted in a grower’s pot, this top-quality blooming bulb garden arrives in the first stages of growth, with blooms appearing in about three weeks. Just water and enjoy the show!

A reusable vine basket is included with the garden; reuse the basket with the subsequent gardens.

  • Pre-planted flower bulb gift garden
  • 8 Tulips, 2 Hyacinths and 12 Glory of the Snow
  • Fresh, fragrant growing gift is an alternative to cut flowers
  • High-quality bulbs bring color, cheer and fragrance

Even though it is almost the middle of March I am currently awaiting another Nor’ Easter in New England that is heading our way…. thank you so much for lifting my spirits and reminding me that spring is indeed on the way and it will arrive sooner or later! I absolutely love the porch swing— I will be checking that one out!

    1. Hi Sharon! You should definitely display your quilt! To me, quilts have a personality. They tell a story. My quilts are my family’s story and have been made with love and I can feel it when I look at them. They are also one of a kind and when you think about the time and patience in making one it can bring a special appreciation to the one that made it. So get that quilt out of your wardrobe! I appreciate your comments and hope to see you soon!

  5. Great products, Brenda. I had no idea that a wicker design could be achieved with resin which probably lasts a lot longer than wicker would outside. Appreciate the introduction to Plow & Hearth. It appears they have lots of wonderful products.
