Blue Flowers

Hello everyone!

It is finally looking and feeling like Spring around here!  It couldn't come at a better time too.  It is Spring Break here and it has been a welcome addition.  We've been getting some things done around here and still have more to do.  My husband has been pressure washing the driveway and walkway.  He's half way done. It takes a long time.  Also, we had new pine straw put out in our flower beds.  We plan to paint our master bedroom later this week too.  So you can see it has been a "working" Spring Break for us.  

Inside, I added some light blue flowers to my flower arrangement on the coffee table.


I'm liking the softness of this color against all the grey and white in the room.  



It's very subtle.



Also, I wanted to show you what I ended up doing on the bench in my foyer.  After I removed the burlap pillow sham to place back on my bed, I moved my ticking striped shams (from Pottery Barn) and a burlap pillow in there.


My husband and I also just celebrated our wedding anniversary and our waiter snapped this pic of us at the restaurant.


Hope you're having a great week so far!  Hopefully, I'll be back soon with pictures of our bedroom makeover. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Finally , I can place a face to the beautiful [posts and home! Hello Kelly.
Congratulations on your Wedding Anniversary .
We had Spring break 2 weeks ago... college. He had a working one as well, he works for a software company and was there almost the entire time.
This weekend, yes a holiday weekend :-( we (finally) tackled the sanding and painting of the 4 dining side chairs. YIKES!!!! But they are done, the painting... recovering is next.
Luv the touch of blue on the coffee table.
Enjoy your Spring break.
Hugs, Gee

Great picture of y'all.

Hi Kelly! Congrats again on your anniversary - such a great picture of you & your husband. My daughter had her college spring break a few weeks ago, and my school's is this week! Loving being able to stay up late and sleep in (if I want) and also the chance to do projects at home like you! Love the addition of that pretty blue with your flowers. Happy Spring Break! Jane

Busy busy! You're going to need a break from your break! lol
I love the pale blue flowers in your room. They look so pretty with all the white and gray! I think the ticking pillows look really great on your bench too!
I know I've already told you this, but I am so excited for your master bedroom makeover!

That's a great picture of the two of you. Happy Anniversary. :)

Love your bench. Having a bench in the entry is such a nice touch. It really welcomes people in.

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

Love the bench in the foyer. I've thought about swapping out my sofa table for a bench in my foyer. Such a sweet pic of you and your hubby. :)I know what it's like to have a "working" spring break too. Sometimes I think my hubby is happy to get back to work!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY KELLY! How many years?

I bet your bedroom will look awesome just like the rest of your house. Can't wait to see it. Maybe it will motivate me to get ours done. I had done it in a pale gray but sometimes it looks plum and I have tried to like it and after more than a year I just can't.

Kelly, everything looks great!

I especially love your bench freshening up! Fantastic!

What is the name of your wall colour on the long shot pic of your basket of pretty blue flowers please? I have been looking for a subtle neutral new colour for one of the guest rooms and that may be it- not sure- looks grey?

I am loving that bay window with the sofa beneath it. My daughter lives in San Francisco and has a similar window.

Sounds like you have had a busy week.

Happy Anniversary, Kelly! Love the photos of the pretty basket of flowers in your home. The first photo is my favourite- I love the perspective with the greenery in the front and also in the background on that great pillar. Thank for the kind comment on my feature over at Old Time Farmhouse.
