Guest Groups: Spring Green

In my small corner of the world, spring is a magic time. It is green grass, orange flowers perfuming the air, spring training, and hours of jumping rope and soccer in the garden. I gravitate to the green this time of year. Below are a few of my favourite spring green picks for inside and out. — Elaina out of Fun Finds for Mom


Leafkeepers Cable Ties – $5.96

These Leafkeepers make me want to exhibit my cable ties that are bunched-up. That is saying something.

Boon, Inc..

Turf, Front-Facing Bookshelf

This grassy bookshelf would be ideal at a kids’ bedroom. I would also like it in my green-accented kitchen mounted onto the wall and holding a few cookbooks.

The Label Man

Orange Crate Label – $6.99

In Arizona, spring means citrus. I framed this initial crate tag from the ’40s at a white frame in my kitchen, alongside a similar lemon tag. They look so fresh and cheery!

Boon, Inc..

Grass, Countertop Drying Rack – $17.99

I purchased this “grass” drying rack out of Boon after reading about it on one of my favourite blogs, Chez Larsson. It makes me happy every time I pop a thermos on it.


Pillow Numbers & Letters, Green – EUR 19.99

Numbers, letters and green all in one glowing graphic pillow cover.

Antiquaire Online

Green Toy Bin

Possibly the coolest toy box — a green Tolix Kids metal bin on wheels! This would also be more ideal for corralling all our board games.


Green Lawn Children’s Vinyl Decal Wall Sticker by Elmo Studio – $30

If I put decals on the wall, these are a competition. They’re subtle, yet whimsical.


Vintage 1970s Spring Green Caning Printing by Wary Meyers – $125

Catch these vintage spring green ’70s pillows before they’re gone! The caning layout reminds me of my childhood.


Kardemumma Plant Pot – $1.99

A new houseplant is an effortless method to put in a shot of green. My father bought me a Zamefolia plant, that seems to be impossible to kill. It lives happily inside the white kettle on the left.

Beau Oyler

Large Happy Family – $200

A magnetic urban vertical backyard is ideal if you have limited counter space — or just want trendy living wall art!

Food Map Design

Food Map Container – $112

I have loved these white tub herb planters on wheels because I saw them at True Food (Dr. Andrew Weil’s restaurant in Phoenix).


Porcelain Egg Planters Wheat Grass Kit Egg Sprouts by Eco Components – $25

Growing grass from seed is an enjoyable spring action to do with all the youngsters. Set out a spray bottle of water and then let them mist the planted seeds. My father (gardener extraordinaire) really implanted 100 tiny pots of grass seed and then grew them for me to use as place settings at my spring wedding.


Custom Painted Wooden Birdhouses by Sophias Rosie Room – $50

I drove by a house with a huge tree in front lawn that was absolutely dripping with birdhouses. What better way to welcome spring than providing colorful birdie real estate?

aStore for Amazon

Carrie Bicycle Basket, Green – $74

My future white shore cruiser will look blasting wearing this fun and fancy bike basket.

Gardener’s Supply Company

Deluxe Garden Hose Cart – $119

I dig the colour of the green powder-coated steel spout cart. I really need to set this up using our tangled mess of a hose. I am aware that it would be love at first sight.


House Pet, Frog Carpet Tile – $11.99

This grassy green Frog FLOR tile may be utilized as an outdoor carpet or indoor carpet.


Umbra Grassy Plastic Organizer, Green – $10

If you prefer the Boon grass drying rack, I am sure you’ll adore this Umbra feeder holder.


Sam Buffet Lamp – $515

This spiky floral lamp is handmade by artisans in Mexico by Stray Dog Designs, a company that gives some of the proceeds to people who do great things for hungry and homeless people, stray cats and dogs.


Farmer’s Market Basket, Small Square – $14

I have long admired these vibrant ceramic berry baskets from Anthropologie. Time to get to the mall and pick up one!


Color-Blocked Balloon Cutting Board – $248

This handmade cutting board, finish with leather grip, is a work of art.
