About Me

My photo
I have discovered it is really hard to be Queen in a household with 3 princesses! Somebody is always borrowing my tiara! Well in between hunting my stuff down I am the proclaimed Queen in the Land of fluff (where my husband swears one day that he will die from glitter lung (you get the picture!) Besides that I am a dieting, exercising, crafting, biblestudying kind of girl.

Spring decorating

Well here are some picture from my attempt to start decorating for Spring! YEAH!! I love sunshine, & here Spring is the season where it is 70-80 degrees (What I consider to be the perfect temperature)
I brought out my spring bouquet from last year, rearranged the flowers and ***ironed my ribbon from last year with my flat iron - it went straight & perky again just like new! I got that tip from another wonderful blogger full of great tips at www.granvillehouse.blogspot.com You should check out her site if you have not found her blog yet. (it was so convenient I didn't have to get my ironing board out!)
The next picture is a pic of my front porch (I am trying to use the color scheme yellow, black, & white) The seat covers on the bistro table came from the $1 fabric at Walmart last year, it's yellow with bees on it, The black & white fabric for the seat cushions in the rocking chair also came from Walmart $1 section last year. (oh, how I wish my Walmart still sold fabric!)
The two rockers are not identical but by painting them both the same color I think they blend nice.
& the rug I just took a picture of because I got it yesterday on clearance at Walmart (humm..where is one of my favorite haunts) for $9.00 - I thought that was a steal! Looks more posh than $9.00 and was a good medium size rug for my entry way which is not very big.
(I also changed all my cleaning products to orange scent & bought candles in orange blossom and coconut & lime scent. I love Scents!! They help my attitude and boost the enjoyment factor I find in my own house)
What is your favorite color schemes to decorate for spring? Or what is your favorite scent to use around your house for spring??
(on a personal note: thanks for putting up with all my pics at the beginning - I have not learned how to disperse the pics thru out my blog - some things I am still learning about. )


  1. I actually don't change my colors for any season other than Christmas.

    I really love that fleur de lis rug that you have! So cute and for a great price!

  2. I am completely inspired! Love the flat iron idea!!!!

  3. Flat iron?
    Who knew?!
    Love the photos.
    That porch is calling my name.
    Hang on to the good weather till I can get there, OK?

  4. Oh, I love the tin on your front door. That's something I am going to keep my eye out for. So glad the flat iron trick worked for you!! I wish good 'ol Wally World still sold fabric also. Have a great weekend!!

  5. You certainly have a talent for decorating. Everything looks great. And I love the trick of painting dissimilar items the same color.

  6. Wonderful finds here! Also, I found something interesting I thought I would share…from something I wrote this month…
    DÉCOR TIPS & QUIPS from AlphabetPIX.com
    Bringing Out Your Inner BOLD!
    Bill Blass said, “Style is primarily a matter of instinct.” Decorating takes on a new meaning for each individual. Clever and chic for Janie may be yesterday’s yawn-fest for Carol. Different tastes in décor mean different furniture, artwork and color palettes. So what is the rule of thumb for making your place zing if it’s not a certain style, pattern, or color?
    Bold, baby! Bring on the bold!
    Boldly say what you want to say when designing a room. Make a statement and let your personality shine through. If you go in for the palest blues to soothe and relax, add a custom zing to make it pop! Love black and white photography? Maybe even some of that ultra-hot photo alphabet wall art in black and white? Splash in some passionate pink or revved up red on the wall to make it sizzle.
    No longer are walls content with neutral shades. Any color of the palette goes! Splash on muted melons or eccentric eggplants with savvy sage. Classic colors cozy up with velvety crimsons and Dijon yellows. Color is fantastically bold and beautiful! Rich textured throws, swags, rugs and runners jazz up every room, every time.
    Patterns are all the rage now, too. Twists and twirls, paisleys and pearls-bold is key! Did you ever in a million years think of dotting stripes and striping dots? Designers these days are pulling out all the geometrical stops. Paisley mixes with all sorts of combinations-checks, polkas, and weathered solids. Discover a new way of looking at the world around you in different shapes and deigns.
    Mix it all with gorgeous gilding in silver and gold. Toss in a few well-chosen accents-bold and beautiful. And with the trend of decor becoming more and more personalized, a meaningful piece of photography will make you feel right at home. Black and white as well as the historic look of sepia photography looks gorgeous in any room. Add all these ingredients together, and you’ve got yourself a decorating design that not only expresses your individual style but does so as personally and beautifully as you want it to.
    Whatever you want to say while decorating, say it with your own personal sense of style. Put it out there for the world to see and don’t look back! Embrace your individuality whether your nature is “Janie jazzed” or “Carol calm”. Express yourself! When people enter your home they’ll shoot you a complementary smile, knowing it looks and feels sooooo perfectly like you. And no one can do YOU better.
