Is it Spring yet?

This post brought to you by Pier 1. All opinions are 100% mine.


Did you know that the official first day of Spring is next weekend?  Does it feel like it in your neck of the woods?  We had more snow last week.  I’m over it.  I’m ready for Spring.

So, I put on some Spring-y shoes


and I headed to Pier 1.

See that ice melt residue on the sidewalk?  Told you it’s still yucky here!  It’s definitely Spring in Pier 1, though.




Let’s take a closer look at that pillow (on another chair):


THAT, my friends, is outdoor fabric.  And because I didn’t believe the tag, I manhandled it just to make sure.  Awesome.  Put it on your couch so you can enjoy it all the time and then take it outside when you’re barbecuing to show the neighbors just how fancy you are!  Plus, it’ll smell like meat when you bring it back indoors!

The other indoor/outdoor thing that blew my mind?  This rug:


It’s so pretty I don’t think I could stand to take it outside.

Are you ready to celebrate the official start of Spring next weekend?  Pier 1’s got a special in-store offer to help you do just that.  Sign up for the Pier 1 Outdoor newsletter to get the scoop.


I think I need those napkin rings…to wear.  So, so cute!

Whilst I’m taking about Pier 1, remember the bloggers night out in the Salt Lake City area in December?  There are more headed your way.

Dallas: March 22nd 
Atlanta: April 5th

Visit the Pier 1 Tweetups page for the details, because a moment like this when you win a $500 gift card is too good to pass up!


I picked up a couple of things for myself.


I’ll show you how they play into my Spring/Easter mantel tomorrow.

  5. I just have one question.

    So if you were a petal pillow that smelled like meat, what kind of meat would you smell like?

    Totally cute, super happy, lovely springy stuff! I'm so happy we're getting some hints of spring here and there!!

  8. Ok, I MUST have that vase of multi-colored daisies. Those are daisies, right? Well, whatever they are, I MUST have them. They make my eyes giddy.

    Ha-ha. I'm glad you told me that was ice residue on the sidewalk. I sometimes forget where my bloggy friends live, and when I saw the flipflops (and your lovely polished toenails), I thought you were standing on a sandy beach. LOL!

  11. lauren@warmandfuzzy says:

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE your flip flops! and your cute toes too! Everything they have is adorable!!

  12. Look at those big girl shoes you have on! Good grief I need to go to Pier 1. Like now.
