In my little corner of the world, spring is a magical time. It's green grass, orange blossoms perfuming the air, spring training, and hours of jumping rope and soccer in the backyard. Naturally, I gravitate to the color green this time of year. Here are some of my favorite spring green picks for indoors and out. — Elaina from Fun Finds for Mom
These Leafkeepers actually make me want to display my bunched-up cable ties. That's saying something.
This grassy bookshelf would be perfect in a kids' bedroom. I'd also like it in my green-accented kitchen, mounted on the wall and holding a few cookbooks.
In Arizona, spring means citrus. I framed this original crate label from the '40s in a white frame in my kitchen, next to a similar lemon label. They look so fresh and cheery!
Numbers, letters and green all in one bright graphic pillow cover.
Probably the coolest toy box ever — a green Tolix Kids metal bin on wheels! This would also be perfect for corralling all of our board games.
If I ever put decals on the wall, these would be a contender. They are subtle, yet whimsical.
Grab these vintage spring green '70s pillows before they're gone! The caning design reminds me of my childhood.
A new houseplant is an easy way to add a shot of spring green. My dad bought me a Zamefolia plant, which seems to be impossible to kill. It lives happily inside the white pot on the left.
A magnetic urban vertical garden is perfect if you have limited counter space — or just want cool living wall art!
I've loved these white tub herb planters on wheels since I first saw them at True Food (Dr. Andrew Weil's restaurant in Phoenix).
Growing grass from seed is a fun spring activity to do with the kids. Set out a spray bottle of water and let them mist the planted seeds. My dad (gardener extraordinaire) actually planted 100 tiny pots of grass seed and grew them for me to use as place settings at my spring wedding.
I drove by a house with a huge tree in the front yard that was absolutely dripping with birdhouses. What better way to welcome spring than providing colorful birdie real estate?
My future white beach cruiser will look smashing wearing this fun and fancy bicycle basket.
I dig the color of this green powder-coated steel hose cart. I really need to set it up with our tangled mess of a hose. I know it would be love at first sight.
This grassy green Frog FLOR tile can be used as indoor carpet or an outdoor rug.
If you like the Boon grass drying rack, I'm sure you'll love this Umbra toothbrush holder.
I've long admired these colorful ceramic berry baskets from Anthropologie. Time to get to the mall and pick one up!
