get ready for spring!

April 5, 2011

Spring is in the air! It’s warming up, the snow is melting, and it’s staying lighter longer… you gotta love spring! I know we have been looking forward to it, here at hauthaus.

We thought we would highlight some fun products to help get you in the mood for the new season…

Having a spring brunch? What about pouring fresh squeezed orange juice from this lovely floral ceramic pitcher from Anthropologie?

Do you need something to make spring cleaning a little more enjoyable? Pick up one of these ‘mum scrubbers’ at Patina Stores.

The white bud vase, also from Patina, is a great little display vase for individual flowers.

And, who doesn’t love the smell of fresh-cut grass? Try this fresh-cut grass candle to really make your home smell like spring is in the air!
