Five on Friday – Vol. 49

Happy Friday to you and to the lovely hostesses of Five on Friday - A.Liz Adventures, Carolina Charm, The Good Life, and Hello Happiness.



Austin’s office had a luncheon this week, and he was smart enough to swipe a centerpiece for me.  Fresh flowers are always a bright spot in my week, and these give me hope that spring will come! 



I’m wanting some boxwood wreaths in my life to freshen things up a bit.  I’d love one on our front door and a few baby ones to use inside.

I couldn’t resist getting out a few Easter decorations yesterday while snowed in at home.  Come on spring!

March 2015 



We have a big day of errands and little house projects planned tomorrow.  Austin’s parents gave us some framed duck prints from his old room at their house, and the colors actually go pretty well with one of the rooms upstairs, so we are finally getting those on the wall.  I’ve also heard that the weather next weekend (my birthday weekend!) is going to be quite spring-like, so I may squeeze in a tiny shopping trip for something springy.  If I could ever find this scarf I pinned ages ago, I would be so so happy.  Doesn’t it scream spring?!  Unfortunately, the Pinterest link goes nowhere helpful.

One thing on our agenda for next Saturday is filling the planter next to our front door.  Love this porch shot for inspiration (via).  And I’m thrilled my parents, who both have green thumbs, will be here to tell me what to do!  And they happen to have lovely planters flanking their front door, too.

  3. Hey Emily, I don't know if this is helpful but I recognized that fabric from the scarf as being part of Candy Kirby Designs ( since I've ordered things for my daughter from the shop. If it's not the exact one, it's super similar! Maybe the scarf was made by someone who ordered that fabric? Anyway, have a great day!
