renew...

The sun is shining brightly here today after our gloomy weekend and it is such a welcome sight to this native California girl.

Something about it streaming through the windows just inspires me.


My house has been sadly neglected while I have buried my head in my studio so I think this week I will shut the craft room door and focus on a little sprucing up.


I pulled some fabric (both vintage and new) out of my stash to make a few new pillows for the living room sofa.  I am craving more color in there and I think that will do the trick.


I still have a gift card to Home Goods from Christmas so I think I will head over there today and see if I can find a small lamp for the bookcase under the window.


Refresh, energize, rejuvenate, flourish...that's my plan for this week.  What's yours?

xo, Patty

  1. Patty - Sounds like a good plan to me. That's kinda what I'm doing this week also. Along with sewing some new pillows.

  5. I am having WAY too much fun getting my new craft room put together. I could probably blog about it everyday, but I know that gets a bit boring for everybody else. My house is struggling to stay presentable because of this. Oops! I probably should keep focused and keep the rest of the house appealing! Sounds like you've been enjoying yourself too! Have a delightful day!

  7. I'm cleaning out cupboards and getting rid of things l don't need. Hubby and l did all the kitchen cupboards yesterday, bathroom today and clothes tomorrow. Big job but feels lovely when it's finished :-). Gave away half my belongings when we moved 3 years ago, but there is still more to go. A lot more :-). Hope you have a lovely week, Pam :-)

  15. I'm into the refresh and reorganize. One problem is I tore two rooms apart and now can't settle on what to keep and what to get rid of. I want to keep everything but it just doesn't fit back in the way I want a refreshed room to look. Oh my, I have company coming this weekend so I best get a move on it!!!

    Seems I'm head long into Studio One or head long into the Upper Level here On Crooked Creek...all the while the other suffers terribly!!! Livin' life, huh???

    Fondly,
    Pat
