Spring has Sprung...okay no it really hasn't here in Minnesota. Again I hear the dreaded word "snow" and think when in the world will this eternally long winter end and spring begin. But with all that negativity about snow and winter I still have the spring bug. This bug has bitten me and inspired me to do some brightening up of my house. As I looked around all I could see was drab, dull colors so I decided to take on the misson of adding some much need spring colors into my house.
My first project was inspired by the blog http://www.theletteredcottage.com/ ! First let me say...Love it! She is amazing and has great ideas. In her blog she called it pillopalooza and so I will too. If you click on pillopalooza she will link you to the exact fabrics she used. Most were purchased at http://www.fabric.com/ one of my new favorite fabric sites. So I pulled out the trusted sewing machine and set to work. If you want directions on how to make the pillows you can click on her site. This was a fun, easy, quick, fresh update to my living room and I do absolutely love them!
Next I set to work on some of my shelves. I began adding bright colors. I decided to pull in greens, yellows, pinks, and blues. I found bright paper to add to frames and cute flowers to add to bud vases. I also thought that lemons were just what the doctor ordered so I began pulling them in as well. So for under $30 dollars I felt like I gave my house a little....and much needed "Spring Lift"! Now if Spring could only get here!
