Good-bye April Showers

Well, I don't know about all of you, but I'm very done with April! It has been a non-stop roller coaster which I'm hoping has come to an end. Not a fun ride. This past week especially sums up the whole month. Like this picture - disappointment in the snow and beauty in the bird.

From the devastation and sadness of the tornadoes to the joy and stunning beauty of the royal wedding. This parallels the highs and lows of my week and month with frustration of selling our house to resolution(!) and feeling like a queen while I enjoyed a spa day yesterday, thanks to my awesome hub!


Featured Designer: Decorating Is Bliss

 Tween Room by Sharon

If you haven't discovered Decorating Is Bliss, you are missing out! I just love the colors Sharon uses and her posts feature so many great products, ideas and advice. And if you arrive to her blog a bit grumpy, Sharon's smiling face will jump right out and make you happy!



Finding A New Sofa

As previously mentioned, I have changed my decorating palette colors from the jewel-toned dark green, red & gold to soothing-spa colors of aqua blue and lighter greens.  However, I was really stuck in our living room since our sofas are those exact colors I don't want anymore:


More Great Finds!

So a few days ago, I had another shopping excursion for various decor pieces.
My last Mom's Day Out was a fun, nutty and exhilarating day! This shopping
 day was as productive, but a bit less nutty. Though I did still have great old
 rock & roll playing in the car!

I hit my usuals: Target, TJMaxx and Bed, Bath & Beyond. I picked up
new towels at BB&B to go with our Master Bath Makeover.
Lusciously soft aqua blue and seafoam green:


A Flower Bed Haircut!

In my quest to continue turning this new-to-us house into an updated and colorful home, we recently did some outside yard work. Here we are clearing the overgrown bushes in the front flower bed.

And here they go.....


Project Simplify - Laundry Room

Well, it's the last installment of Simple Mom's Project Simplify. This week we could choose our own spot for clearing out. I chose our laundry room. Someday, I hope it will be bright and colorful, use your imagination!

  Nice and clean!


Decor Blog Therapy

Over the past 36 hours we've been consumed by house selling hell. So today I'm just focusing on things that I like, that are pretty, that make me happy. I've missed looking at all the great blogs out there! And I'm really behind in comment follow-up, so sorry, will catch up soon!

I love the style of our old house
