It's Cold Outside but Sunny Inside!

Hello everyone!

Many years ago, I decorated with yellow.  I even had yellow walls!  After my love affair with lots of color was over, I transitioned to mostly neutrals, removing all hints of cheerful colors along the way.  But, recently, for some unexplained reason, I've come back to liking yellow again.  Only this time, not in heavy doses.  I'm using it in more purposeful ways just to bring some cheer into my spaces.  I'm also not mixing it with other bright colors.  I'm choosing to use it with my neutrals and lots of white.  So, now, it's not too much but just enough to liven up my spaces.  It's making me smile!  Yellow is a happy color, right?  Here are some photos of rooms around my house using this new happy color.

Share Your Style Party #51

Hello everyone!

Welcome to the 51st Share Your Style party!  I am still knee deep in painting and trying to get my son's room completed.  It's hard to work all of this around my husband's work schedule.  I've injured my hip so he is having to do most of the work.  In the meantime, I'm enjoying seeing what everyone else has been able to accomplish!  This week, Lynn from The Vintage Nest is your host.  She will be sharing some exciting news about our party too!

My Son's Bedroom Progress and Other Changes

Hello everyone!

What a busy weekend I had!  My husband painted our son's bedroom  and I painted his furniture.  We hung a new light fixture in there too.  That's about as far as we got!  I bought a new curtain rod, so we will hang drop cloths in there and we still have to put together his furniture (gaming desk and chair). Then we will arrange his furniture and can call it quits.  

Here are some progress pics.

Some Pics From "Hometown"

Hello everyone!

Remember me telling you about the new show on HGTV called Hometown?  It's hosted by Ben and Erin Napier in Laurel, Mississippi.
Well several of you said that you didn't get a chance to see the pilot episode last Sunday.  So, since I recorded it, I thought I would snap some pics to share with you today!  I heard that they will be re-running it again, but the network doesn't have a date set yet.  

Anyway, my pics don't do it justice.  If you get to watch the show, you can see everything more clearly and hear the interesting stories behind everything that they did to the home.  I'm only sharing the after pics.  They are the pretty ones, after all!

Share Your Style Party #50

Hello everyone!

Welcome to this week's Share Your Style party!  I hope that you are having a good week so far.  Are you still covered up in snow?  Ours melted long ago and we're expecting warmer temps this weekend.  I'm hoping that I can finally get outside and clean up our yard.  The gusty winds, last weekend, blew down a lot of limbs everywhere!  I can't wait to see what you all have to share this week.  Barbara from 21 Rosemary Lane is your host.

Hi everyone and welcome back to another Share Your Style Link Party. This one is number 50 and I am your host this week Barbara from 21 Rosemary Lane.

Did you Survive the Blizzard of 2016?

Hello everyone!

I hope that if you're reading this, that means that you're inside a warm house with the power working.  I know so many of you in the Northeast have had a rocky weekend.  Hopefully, the worst is behind you now.

Here in my neck of the woods, we just got a light dusting of snow but we endured extremely cold temps and gusting winds.

Some Pretty New Things

Hello everyone!

I wanted to share some things that I purchased with my Christmas money recently.  I have a thing for fur this year.  Faux fur, not real fur!  So, when I found this fur covered stool at World Market, I grabbed it up.  It was on sale, which helped me afford it.  It is only available online though.
