Spring is here in spirit, only.

I have been bitten by the spring cleaning bug, I have cleaned closets , re-caulked the tub which failed and I don't know why as I followed all the directions, bummer, moved around lots of things for instance my bedroom, it is still in flux, and organized my magazines, cleaned windows , even listed things on Craig's list and sold one item immediately last night what fun. This is a family piece from my father's side I believe, I have always loved it and my mother was kind enough to give it too me a few years back, and I brought it out into the room after it was in my closet , it looks so lovely here with my accessories I think , this is right across from my elliptical machine where I have been sweating up a storm lately , to no result, of course, my husband changed his diet a tad and looses 5 pounds, I work out for 3 weeks and eat much more healthy options and I gain weight , what !
I also brought up this table that I refinished 8 years ago to use for my side table, I like it , and it is the perfect spot to put the dogs cage. I want to paint it because I don't like the color, or maybe I will stain it darker , or paint it , any suggestions will be accepted and appreciated. The walls will be changing soon either all to the brown or all deep grey still undecided. As well the chair will be sprayed black .

Look at my little girl , she wanted to have the same cut as her big sis, this was her first visit to the hair dresser , its not exactly hard to cut hair straight after all, so I have always done it , but not the layering I will leave that to the professionals. She loves it , she looks so big , what a deal $9.00.

Where do you find the energy to repaint whole rooms? I find it to be the most ardous task. I won't even do it if its just going to be me slaving away. Again, I bow down to your skills!

I, too, have been picking away at the spring cleaning. Oddly, I find it enjoyable for the most part, which is a bit disturbing, I know!

Your Sophie is such a little sweetie!! You're such a girly mama!!

I have an old fan similer to yours---mine still works , but I told my hubby that I wanted it rewired for my birthday--it has electric tape in one place. A friend of mine did most of her house in a warm rich gray--I was amazed at how wonderful it looked and somehow it gave a warm feeling (she did have some reds in her furniture). So I will be interested in what colors you choose--if I remember to come back and look!!

Happy Spring Cleaning! You've inspired me to tackle some of mine. If winter isn't going to go away on its own maybe we can "will it away"!!

What a sweet little girl you have! She has such a pretty smile. :o)

The giveaway is going to work so that anyone who comments with a suggestion about about my newly painted green room will be entered for a draw to win a digital photo keychain! I need your advice!! LOL!!

I can't really tell what colour the table is so can't comment on that but I do think grey would look lovely on your master bedroom walls. Do you have other shots of the room, though, as it is a little hard to tell what the overall look it from the one photo.

I agree with the others that you are just a decorating whirlwind - and I bow in admiration.

Oh I forgot to say that I love the new haircuts on your cutie-patootie girls. They look great.

That girl is just precious!

I wish I had the spring cleaning bug. I'd rather do anything BUT that right now! :)
