My favorite things about spring

There are so many good sides to every season. With all the increased amount of light, spring is most definitely the season when it's time to create new, re-organize, de-clutter and of course do a good spring clean at home. You feel like it's new life and new you. I wanted to share my top 5 of spring so here it is!

1. Walking around the city center and having a cup of coffee at my favorite coffee shop. Actually, my favorite thing in any season is walking around our city center but especially in spring. I love looking at the old, beautiful buildings and "window shop" and just gather new ideas.






2. Re-decorating at home. Old furniture gets a completely new look when you move them around and add them differently together. Getting new ideas while window shopping and reading those ah, glossy decorative magazines help to see your old furniture on a new pair of eyes. I turned our office corner into a cozy corner and it became my favorite spot of the house immediately! (It's a work in process so more pics will be coming later.)




3. Cleaning outside and enjoying the new life. Absolutely my favorite thing as soon as the snow melts away and the ground is not completely frozen. I love working in our yard and garden and spring is the perfect time to plan. I can't wait to sit outside in the sun when it gets a little bit warmer, and I can't wait for the first freckles to appear on my nose!




4. Going through my wardrobe. Every spring there is something that I want to get rid off immediately and something that I fall in love again. Putting things on sale on the internet or second-hand stores is a cool way to get rid of old clothes and you also might make a small profit at the same time. By the way, is it possible to own too many striped shirts? My answer is no...





5. Easter. I don't have any specific relationship to Easter but I really love all the colorful decorations that come along with it! Last year my mom was visiting me here from Finland and she got me the most adorable Easter napkins. Now I just have to find all the other Easter decorations and get some color to our house.


So these were my top 5 things of spring. I'm writing this post on my new favorite place, the cozy corner and sipping on coffee. Sun is shining and it couldn't feel more like spring is here. I think it's soon time to run out and hunt those freckles! What do you enjoy most about spring?

P.s. The giveaway I mentioned earlier will be in my next post, stay tuned!

  1. Hello!

    Well, we're still in the winter! Right?

    This March has been very rainy, and although I almost could not do anything in the garden, rain is very necessary because Portugal, in recent years, is going through a period of extreme drought.

    I like to watch my five turtles wake up from hibernation and start eating again. And I like to see the lawn gradually become green again. And I like to hear birds singing. And I like to feel the temperatures increase and to wear a short-sleeved sweater while I'm working in the garden :) So many things to do in my garden!

    Have a nice sunday!

    1. Nooo, it's spring now :D! For me it's a strong sign of spring when I see tulips starting to grow. And for you I'd guess it's when the turtles start to wake up :). Being outside and working in the garden is really great in spring. I use a lot of my spare hours there - like today. Happy Sunday!

  2. Great post! I'm super excited to get into Spring and Summer, I've missed the warmer weather a lot! I love having a wardrobe clear out and general Spring clean too!- https://sophiehearts.net x

    1. Spring clean is the best, haha! And worst because you see all the dust you thought you'd already cleaned up... As much as I like winter, I really have missed the warmer weather too. But now it has started to warm up so we're in the right direction :)!

  3. This is a lovely post about Spring! I love Spring as well and I can't wait for it to be lighter later on in the day, it makes the day feel so nice and long!
    I can't wait to start dressing for Spring as well, I'm sick of bundling up and wearing 3 layers!!
    Love, Cally xx

  7. Super adorable idea for a post and I totally agree, I'm so ready for Spring now! There's been so much on and off snow where I am this month and I'm beyond over it. Bright, warm days with plenty of flowers and Easter goodies are much needed :)

  11. I have to admit I'm not very outdoorsy so most of this wouldn't make much difference for me. BUT I am looking forward to being able to run outside without slipping on some ice and breaking a bone or 10 (it's March?). And the one about the coffee shop too! It'll be nice to go for a casual stroll rather than running in and out of each shop x

    1. The amount of light inside the house is also making me happy, especially to wake up to light instead of pitch black is soooo amazing! And like you said, it's a lot nicer to walk outside when you don't have to watch out your every step!

  13. Loved this post, gets me so pumped for spring!! I adore the spring weather & clothes. But, I agree with you, there is almost nothing better than some time spent sipping on coffee and strolling around the city. Love walking and getting the chance to enjoy the sunshine!!

    1. Yey, I'm happy to spread the spring feeling! I love the napkins too, they are almost too cute to use, hehe. At least in Scandinavia it's a common tradition to decorate home for Easter (less than for Christmas though). I like it, makes homes so colorful :)!

  23. I can't wait for spring, seriously! We had our first taste of spring a month ago, and now it's back to rainy and windy cold weather...
    But yes, spring is such a perfect time for de-cluttering and cleaning! It feels a bit like coming out of hibernation, finally able to move around freely without layers upon layers of warm clothing, and with the first spring flowers blooming. I'd love to see more pictures from your garden - already your appartment is so pretty and green!

    1. It actually feels like coming out of hibernation! Like we're free again. This year spring has been quite on and off here too but hopefully now we're heading towards the lovely, warm days. I will take pictures of our garden when it looks a little bit nicer. Now it's still a little bit muddy with small green spots here and there. But thanks for the idea, I will definitely keep it in my mind and come back to it :).

  24. It's officially spring time! Even though the weather doesn't agree with the calendar yet. However, I totally hear you on venturing out and enjoying the outside world after long winter. It's one of my favourite activity to do in spring too. This year, I also plan to spend time working on my edible balcony.
