one week of March down. You know what that means, don’t you? Only 13 more days till Spring!
I am sure you are as tired of winter as I am. There is still snow on the ground here and too cold to do much outside. I am craving warm sunshine and ready to break out of winter mode right NOW! The doldrums are running deep and have taken my energy right down along with them. I had to get out of the house to get recharged and decided to go to a few of my favorite shops – the thrift store, JoAnn Fabrics, Target, and HomeGoods.
From the long lines at each store, I think many others are feeling the need to get out & about as much as I am.
It was nice to see spring color in the aisles and shelves. Lots of pretty stuff to look at.
I did come home with a few things.
I could not pass up the polka dot vinyl with my 40% off coupon. I bought all that was left on the bolt, which was only a yard. You will be seeing what I do with it in the powder room next week. Stripes go perfectly with polka dots in my mind :-)
I walked out of HomeGoods, HomeGoods happy after finding the dipped basket on clearance. I think I will be using it as the powder room trash can. The napkins were a deal. I plan to use them for my Easter table setting.
Can you guess where the turquoise hand towels will be going? The powder room. I want to bring the color in to coordinate with the vintage industrial light I spray painted turquoise.
I have no idea what I will do with the chartreuse and white striped wrapping paper, but it is in my color scheme and I know someday soon an idea will pop into my head and I will be glad I have it on hand.
And speaking of ideas… here are two that I found this week.
Are you the creative type? I know I am…you will love this… It resonated with me in a big way. I want to go back in time with it in my hands and wave it in front of all my school teachers that said in a negative way… that I was a daydreamer.
One reason I did not get further on the powder room this week is that my brother came in from Denver and stayed with us. I could have used this free printable to make life easier for him while he was visiting – truly a sign of the times.
If you saw my Wednesday post, then you know that today is the day I could use your help.
