I owe you a few white posts, so let’s start the week with a few springy, white shots. Have you planted any fresh blooms at your front door yet? I think I’d like to plant some soon. The chickens murdered my topiaries with all of their digging and dirt bathing. I swear they can smell fresh dirt a mile away.
Last year I made Easter favor bags for my ballerinas who performed at the amphitheater of our neighborhood’s Easter Egg hunt. I know these aren’t exactly “pinterest worthy” pictures, but I wanted to share this cute idea in case you were looking for an easy project. I liked placing the chocolate chicks on the jelly beans because it looks like they were nesting on their eggs ; ) This would be adorable in a basket or jar too!
Happy to say I squeezed in a little vegging over the weekend…although not nearly enough. Now it’s a wake-up call kind of Monday. It seems the coffee is just never strong enough for the brutality of a Monday morning. Can I get an amen? How about some stripes to jump start our week…
This lamp shade caught my eye. Gold stripes on a plain lamp to spice things up? Yes, please.
One of my favorite colors to work with is blue. You’re probably like, “duh.” I think blue is such a happy color – it’s the hue of a brilliant sky or glassy body of water. It’s so organic and pure. Plus blue has such a versatile quality and can easily blend in almost any color setting. It doesn’t take much to add a hint of blue, even the presence of a soft blue lamp and paintings with murky blue skies, as seen in this charcoal bedroom, makes an impact.
As we begin to experience the wisp of warmer air, chirps of birds, and peeks of spring buds in the trees, I can’t help but long to bring fresh blue indoors. Infusing a little blue in your space is a great way to add a touch of spring. Love this tailored blue slipcover and wallcovering combo via.
I put together an inspiration board for you with a collection of soft blues, minty blues, and even a powerful navy stripe you can add into your bedroom. Not all together, of course. See which one of these you like best.
It’s been an action packed, nonstop two weeks – I’m really looking forward to chillin in my pj’s as much as possible. As a mom of four, I’ve learned you have to embrace relaxation moments whenever you can, because the marathon schedule rarely slows down.
