The advent of spring always seems to get me motivated to do things.
I had had the decor that was above this red cupboard in the kitchen in place pretty much since I got the cupboard itself. So it was time for a change.
This is what went on the wall in the dining space. Something I got at the antique mall some time ago, but couldn't hang until I finished the bathroom and moved the paintings in there.
And yes, that's Abi making sure she gets a photo op.
I love the simplicity of it. Just a poster of birds and their eggs glued to rustic wood.
I have a collection of candles in the dough bowl. I wanted something there that had a purpose and was not merely decorative, but that was also useful.
I like to light candles, and having a grouping of them in one spot makes that even easier.
I also added another coat of paint to this particular dining room wall. When I went to hang the bird piece, I noticed the wall just did not look up to snuff.
So as spring has brought new leaves to the trees and dormant plants have started emerging, I have gotten busy too.
I have to show you who isn't busy though. This is Charlie lying beside me on the couch with his head resting on his dog bed.
As he gets sleepy, his pink tongue comes to rest outside his mouth.
My sweet boy Charlie. I could not possibly love him more, warts (or tongue) and all.
