Spring Cleaning

It has been months since I have done a post! I am not sure if very many people are out there anymore in Blogland but if you are please comment and let me know. I had a sweet lady on Instagram comment that she misses my blog posts and so I decided to check in with everyone!

Everything is well with me. I continue to enjoy painting furniture and spending time with my family. My life is not exciting...but it is happy!

This is my favorite time of year--with the first day of Spring being today! I have been working on Spring cleaning--washing windows, washing and ironing curtains, washing pillows and blankets, my washing machine has been working overtime for sure. I love washing away the dust of winter.

This year I decided to go even further with my cleaning with painting the walls. The five years we have lived here the walls have been beige and I liked them. I like to change things up once in awhile though and just finished painting the walls Benjamin Moore Woodlawn Blue. I couldn't be more happy with the color!

Do you like?

I really love the color. I struggle with clutter though, I want a clean look but I have so many little things (like clocks) that bring me joy!

I put beadboard wallpaper under the window seat. Janae bought it and used it in her house but her cats clawed it she ended up giving it to me. My cats are pretty good about not clawing fingers crossed!

Be a good boy Fez!

Usually I have a white cover on this chair but our yard is so wet and muddy I decided to use this grey cover Janae gave me during this time. The dogs go out and first thing they do is jump on that chair! You can see little Dafney sleeping on the chair. At almost 16 years old she sleeps a lot these days.

I decided to leave the other wall in the living room the original beige color. I may paint it eventually but I kind of like a neutral color behind the TV. My kids will tell you--I love the TV. lol

I have become recently obsessed with the HGTV show "Fixer Upper". Not only do I love the style of what they do on that show I love the couple and their kids. Don't we all aspire to be like Chip and Joanna?!

I have always loved the industrial look though I felt like it doesn't really go with my girlie looks I love. Joanna does a look that I love--she mixes the industrial with other stuff and creates a farmhouse look. We live in a farming community and I am loving the farmhouse look. I feel like she inspires me to change up my style a bit. :) 

I have been practicing my chalkboard skills too

I hope this finds everyone having a good day...and please do let me know you were here!

I close this post with a photo of flowers my Dad brought me the other day---

I'm a lucky girl!
