Happy Spring! Here’s a simple decorating tip from familycircle.com
Getting Fresh
 
Bring spring indoors by arranging bunches of bouquets in monochromatic clusters on a windowsill or table. 
Here’s How: Choose buds with bright contrasting colors, such as yellow daffodils, white narcissus, and pink tulips. Select short vases (ours are 4-inch Japanese teacups), and cut stems at an angle to the height of the vase. Remove most leaves from the stems. Fill containers halfway with water and arrange blooms in tight bunches.

 After a full day spent working or tending to the garden, there’s nothing better than a hot bath — except, of course, a hot bath enriched with fragrant bath salts. While there are many commercially prepared bath salts available, it’s surprisingly easy to prepare your own blend at home.
 
In a large bowl, mix to combine: 6 parts coarse sea salt; 3 parts epsom salts, to soothe tired muscles and reduce inflammation; and 1 part baking soda, to soften waters and alleviate skin irritation. Add a few drops of essential oils, and combine. Add a few drops of food coloring, until you achieve the desired shade. If you intend to present the bath salts as gifts, be sure to store them in a stoppered and labeled container to keep out moisture.
