A Bright Spring Front Porch
WHY does Dollar General only carry 1 (or maybe 2 if you are lucky) of a seasonal item? Lucky for me there are five Dollar General stores within a 5 mile radius of my office.
I love walking through any one of those five Dollar Generals at the change of the seasons. (not an affiliate link. I just love the seasonal products at DG.) They always have some really cute stuff for reasonable prices and spring was no exception.
I first found this bright yellow pillow a few weeks ago and fell in love and wouldn’t you know it … NONE of the other stores had a yellow one. I thought I was just going to have to make do.
When I found this A-dorable pillow with teeny tiny pom poms. How cute is that?!
But there was only one. Of course!
So, on my way home, I had to stop at 3 other stores to find two more.

I “planted” these two pots of yellow tulips right in the dirt in these flower pots on my steps.
The third pot of tulips sits beside one of the new pom pom pillows on the church pew.
Yellow and Pink are my favorite colors for flowers, live and faux. These were already in the watering can from when I used them a year or two ago. I love reusing items that I already own.
The bright yellow welcome mat made a huge change in the looks of the front porch. The old mat was a dark blue and I loved it but it was old and worn and had seen better days. The lighter color really shows up so much more on the dark porch floor.
I love the way it turned out, although I’d like to get something yellow on the left church pew to brighten it up just a little more.
Let’s do some comparisons now.
And a few final favorite shots:
So now, if the cold will leave and it will quit raining every weekend, I’ll be a happy girl.
Do you have spring fever too?
