Spring Ideas


This is what it's doing outside.....

Tonight our friends Josh and Nellie came for a drive by in his rip-roarin' Jeep!!
He gave the boys a little ride down the BLIZZARD ROADS....they loved it.
I got them out of bed when she called and said they'll be coming by! *cool Mom award* :) And yes, Tyler has shorts on because our living room is practically a sauna at a steady 87*-90*. Our woodstove isn't messin' around tonight....the wood we're using is super dry so it burns like MAD!!
Well, it may doing all that snow/blizzard stuff outside, but in my head it's doing this.....
Kohls.com
In my attic sits this new "bed in a bag". I cannot wait to wash this thing,
hang it out to dry so it smells like sunshine and grace our bedroom with it!!
I would like to call it shabby-vintage! And the minty green!!!

PotteryBarn.com
And this pretty little bird from Pottery Barn will be my new jewelry holder.....or perhaps my candy holder or....here's an idea, my candy necklace holder! Perfecto!!
PotteryBarn.com
And see that little blue darling....I'm keeping my eyes open for something similar that I can paint that color....or maybe I'll just paint the one I already have.
Reduce~Reuse~Recycle!

And while I'm at it I'm going to buy some silver/metallic spray paint and go for it at my existing brown lamp bases. The shades are already very similar to the above picture.
Cool. Crisp. Clean. Shiny. Hopefully. INTRODUCING OUR NEW BATHROOM SINK for the upstairs of the carriage house, otherwise known as Jake's place.....it's going to be AMAZING!!
We will pretty much live there.
And hopefully she, (the sink) will sit atop something like this....inspired by Pottery Barn. I love the old, weathered look and we have a leftover random piece of granite to use and then the bowl will sit on top. LOVE! And that glass shelf. love that too!
And this is the back splash that we're using for the kitchen of the upstairs, (not for Grammie's house~which by the way is looking sooooo darling. Hope to be completed in less then 3 weeks)!!!
And I want this shirt.

I shall not covet.
I shall not covet.
I shall not covet.

(That should cover the bedding, jewelry holder, lamps and side table, and the time to do it all).

;)

Enjoy the winter wonderland, single-single-mama-for-the-night-and-day!

I love you and all your fun ideas!!
I've been feeling the same urgency to get things changed around here! A freshening up!! I've been thinking of all the things I wanna paint as soon as spring shows her lovely face! I have't left this house since last saturday night, so I'm feeling quite couped up and tired of looking at the same old stuff! Your day-dreaming post was refreshing!!!

Love ya!!! Mary Jo
