I'm not sure if it's the paint & primer fumes I've inhaled lately or just typical mid-week brain fog...
But I'm kind of random today.
I finally put my Valentine's decor away and brought out something a little bright and cheery for the upcoming-soon to be-I can wait for-daylight savings time will be here- days of spring.
I changed up the dining room table again, this time no one made fun of me... now that we're officially in empty nest mode it's a 50-50 split on the female/male ratio... well unless I count the dogs and then its 4 ladies to one fella.
Speaking of empty nests, they may not have a nest but a flock of swan's have taken up in our field since last Saturday... their numbers seem to grow a bit every day. Strangely our two labs don't even seem to notice them... or mind that they are hanging out in the middle of our winter wheat.
But one thing our labs have noticed is that the bed they slept in every night is now gone.... a mostly empty room is left behind.... their boy moved to his first house of his own.
Left behind is just some books, hockey posters, Lego's and an old Snoopy collection from years ago. Well and of course the paint job that was never finished. Blue and green like a favorite hockey team, the Vancouver Canucks. Now covering up THAT is going to mean some more inhalation of primer fumes!
But now I have another room to fix up... this one into a real guest room, not a bed in my sewing room... and one with a door that actually latches so that said guests aren't awakened by said yellow and black labs... two almost 100 pound labs jumping on you in the morning is sure to keep the guest from staying more than a night or two!
I have lots of ideas for this room and I found this little gem for a bit of inspiration.
I'm thinking pale robin's egg blue/aqua walls like the sewing room but with some old quilts and fun pops of yellow perhaps instead of the pink.... as you can see I couldn't pass this chenille bedspread up since the price ($5.99) was certainly right!
And a final little inspiration and reminder of springtime to come... green and all the colors of flowers that I'm just dreaming about right now...
Counting down the final days of winter,
