Happy Friday peeps! Well, with Easter just 3 weeks away, it’s time to start thinking about Easter ideas!

By now, you probably know that I’m all kinds of crazy about seasonal decorating. Every season has it’s own beauty, but I find that Easter decorating is especially good for the soul.  After a long winter, who can resist pretty pastel colors and sweet baby animals? … Keep on reading —>

Tulip Therapy

So. Apparently, it’s Spring.  You know…that season between Winter and Summer where tulips begin to peek through the soil? Kinda like this…

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not bitter. I’m totally happy for any of you who are basking in Spring weather. (OK, so maybe that was written with a hint of sarcasm ;-).) Spring comes late here at the best of times. … Keep on reading —>

Gettin’ All Spray Paint Happy (in Caribbean Blue)

Seriously, is there anything better than a spray paint makeover? It’s one of the fastest, cheapest, easiest, and most fail-proof projects around.

.

Take for example, this neglected iron patio table which has been kicking around for a few years.  It’s been made-over with spray paint so many times that I can’t even remember what color it was when I bought it!… Keep on reading —>

Ceramic Table Lamps: My Decor Crush de Jour

One of my home decor crushes right now is ceramic table lamps.  I love them in any shape, but the gourd lamp is definitely my fave!  It’s all I can do not to put one in every room, but I’m trying my best to show some decor-trend restraint!
