Summer Fluffin'

I have the "fluff" bug bad.

I have finally found a paint color for our bedroom, decided on new fabrics & vanity color for the bathroom, taken most things off the wall in the dining room to gear up for a re-do in there, and am plotting new light fixtures for the kitchen. I couldn't figure out why all of the sudden I had such a strong desire to start changing things, until I realized that come August we will have lived in this house for 5 years. I cannot believe it. We have never lived in a house for 5 years. In fact in my whole life I have only surpassed 5 years in one home only once, in Alaska during my teenage years. So you can see where my itch for change is coming from can't you?

Well, there was no time for painting or sewing or major project initiatives this weekend. BUT there was time to change up the mantle, and throw some fun, floral summer runners into the kitchen (found for only $5 at Big Lots!)

Guess that will have to hold me for now...
I am definitely deep into a pink phase again, can't you tell?
It is just so happy to me, like being surrounded by cupcakes.


  1. Happy, happy, happy colours, love the parasols above your mantel:) Rachaelxo

  2. I love what you did with the mantel! I must go to Big Lots asap to get that runner!!


  3. I love your mantel~ Those runners are so cute. Thanks for adding me to your blog roll. Have a Happy 4th

  4. OOH! Love, love, love the parasols! I have one hanging similarly in our bedroom - as our light fixture but to use them over the mantel is genius! The runners are incredibly sweet! I might have to visit Big Lots! xo-Mel

  5. I love how you decorate. I think mainly it’s because you use a lot of my three of my all time favorite colors of pink, green, blue. I also appreciate how you show us were you get your inspiration from, like designers, magazines, and other places. I was wondering if you wouldn’t mind giving me some suggestions. I NEVER see anything that remotely looks like my house, or the look that I’m going for, which is what I would call Rustic Woodland or Mountain. Everything I see is the lodge look or has moose or bears on it, which is not what I’m going for. I thought maybe you could give me some good places too look. I hope this isn’t too big of a question.

  6. I love the upside down parasols. Woo Hoo, what an idea.
