Spring Forward Inspiration – Best of the Weekend 3/8/19

Is everyone as excited as I am about this “spring forward” weekend?  Sure, it might take a couple days to get used to the new time…but hooray for longer days!   Before long, we will be eating outside and enjoying the warmer weather.  For now, I will just settle for having dinner while it’s still light out.  You have to appreciate the little things…

Welcome to this week’s edition of Best of the Weekend link party!  As always, we are so happy you could join us!

    I just purchased one of those metal tired trays yesterday and I’m anxious to decorate it for Easter. The St. Patrick’s Day example will come in handy.

      You’re welcome Paula! I can’t wait to start filling my outdoor flower pots! I know what you mean about getting used to the time change. It’s hard for a couple days isn’t it? Enjoy your weekend!

    Thank you for featuring my coloured vases. The clocks here in the UK don’t go forward until the end of the month. Hope you have the best weekend.

      You’re welcome! They are so pretty and it looks like a fun project. I forgot that different countries spring forward with their clocks on different days. Either way, I think we are all looking forward to spring! Enjoy your weekend.
