Is it Spring yet...

Hey everyone!  Hope this finds you all enjoying some warmer weather these days.  It is typical springlike weather on the prairies....wind, some snow, followed by melting temperatures and then another mention of snow in the forecast!!  Mother Nature can't seem to make up her mind.

I find that I take quite a break from blogging during January, February and into March....but I have been checking up on what some of you have all been doing!  I have to admit as well, that I am still having some adjustments to being an empty nester and having married sons.....a new season for me and I may be like Mother Nature,,,,not knowing how to make my mind up about it all!!  Seasons of life and definately one that I have to walk a little closer to the One who knows all things!

I have started putting some ideas together for bring some spring time into the house.  I bought some new throw pillows and have used them as a "springboard" for bringing some color into the fireplace area.

Some pretty blues and yellows to brighten things up!



The wash stand that Darrell got to keep in a coin toss!
I love how it is just the right size for the fireplace area.









I am working on the fireplace mantel.  It is such a large mantel and since I am so stuck on having the sides balanced it is taking some time!! and I find that I have to buy 2 of everything!! Thank goodness for some awesome sales at Michaels this past week.  Some great 2 for 1 deals!  Stay tuned!

It's nice to see you back Dawna. I love that wash stand turned coffee table! What a score that is. Your touches of blue and yellow are nice and cheery for spring and I can't wait to see what you've done with your mantel. Have a great day. Pam

Blue & yellow always makes such a cheerful color combination!

You made me giggle, Dawna. Your mantel problems are mine exactly! It's such a big mantel it's hard to fill, I'm obsessed with symmetry & I always want two of everything! lol

Love the wash stand! And I think I will hire you to come add a splash of colour to my main living area. You have the touch!

Blue and yellow is such a great combination. Love that bright pillow on the chair. And the wash stand is a wonderful piece. I hope spring comes quickly to your corner of the globe.
