Spring Home Decor Etsy Finds

It is the 2nd day of spring.  I must say spring and fall are my fave seaons here in Minnesota.  The transition time.  My body doesn’t really like spring (allergies) but I try to ignore, take allergy meds and get the windows open.  I also like to change up my decor.  Move into the colors of spring.  Hope you enjoy these spring home decor finds found on Etsy. . .

spring wedding day etsy gift guide

I’m so ready for spring.  We have been so fortunate here in Minnesota for very spring-like weather lately.  I’ve had the windows open already and that feels very strange in February but it’s helped me get in the mood for creating spring-inspired creations.

I thought I would put together an Etsy gift guide featuring beautiful gifts for the couple getting hitched this spring (or really anytime!).

Enjoy. . .

book lovers’ etsy gift guide

I love that February is Library Lovers’ Month!  I grew up going to the library all the time.  My mom loved to read.  A lot.

My fondest memories are going to small bookstores in the area (not many of those around any longer) and the library.  My favorite library to visit, with my mom, was the downtown St. Paul library. She would tell me about the time period in her 20’s when she worked at that library.  I think that was her first “real” job.  She would light up telling me about her fun experiences with the people she worked with there.

For a long time, before having my own kids, I really didn’t visit the library.  That changed when I became a mom.  We are fortunate in Dakota Country (in Minnesota) to have some great libraries.  I like to spend the summers at the library with my kids; they have so many wonderful programs, for both kids and adults.

Over on Etsy, you can find so many great finds, just perfect for your book lovers.  I like to give a book (or 2) to my boys for Valentine’s day (not just candy).  A book will outlast any box of candy.

an uplifting etsy gift guide

“Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact.”  – William James

As a lifelong resident of Minnesota, I find January and February to be a difficult time to get through, mentally.  Winter blues.  Whatever you want to call it.

If you know someone (or yourself) that needs a little pick me up,  send a special gift, just because.  I’ve been going through some ongoing medical issues since this summer and it felt so nice to receive a card (an actual card, not an email) from a friend recently. It really made my day.

Send a gift just because.  Be kind.  You never know what someone is going through.

Tip: Most Etsy sellers will ship directly to the recipient with a gift card/message (I know I do!), which makes it even more convenient.
