It seems like this has been one of the longest winters, or maybe it's because it snowed so much. We've had a lot of snow and it's finally melting. I usually don't mind the snow but I'm ready for some warmer weather.
It really was a beautiful day out today and is so welcomed.
I was so happy I could open up the windows and let some fresh air in. I caught every sickness that was going around this season unfortunately. That has never happened before. I am well now and thankful for it. I have to get healthy.
I just ordered T25 and am scared to see what I'm in for. I am out of shape and haven't exercised in a while but I have had it with myself. I hear it's majorly intense but 25 minutes so I am going for it. Pray for me.
Anyway, I have been wanting to redo my bedroom for a while now and haven't got to it. For some reason it always seems the last place that gets done. I still have to paint the furniture.
I am not done with the bedroom but this is way better than what it was. It used to be a pale yellow and I just needed something more soothing. I don't have any blue anywhere else in the house and I'm really liking blue lately so it's in the bedroom and I love it.
I went out and bought a quilt and shams the other day at Home Goods. It definitely needs more pillows and something else. I need curtains too and would like to get something else behind the bed and move the picture to the wall on the left that is not shown. I didn't show it because it's got a sign there that I don't like and doesn't quite match because of the color. I will update when it's all finished. I hope to take a trip to Lancaster to find something cool for behind the bed.
The other day I took a trip up to one of my favorite towns. Allentown NJ. It is a sweet place. For a while, many businesses had closed and they were some of my favorite shops. I was so sad when they went out and it was disheartening going through the town and seeing the empty stores.
But, recently they are starting to fill up the stores again and some really great people are now shop owners. The Old Mill is a real cool old place. A well known Italian restaurant in another town nearby will be occupying the bottom space in the Mill soon. Looking forward to going there when it opens. Three new stores took the top and I love them all.
I got the piece above at one of the stores. I fell in love with it. Loved the color, the etching, the saying and the cute birdy.
Encourage your hopes not your fears is on the back of the plank. He has some nice repurposed stuff in his place. Great guy too.
Allentown is back! Yay!!
I probably posted this picture someplace else at another time but I have this temporarily behind my bed. I love scripture.
I've been going through some stuff lately and I don't know what I'd do without God. When I see this, it comforts me. He understands me and is everything to me.
This picture is very tranquil. I saw it on Beneath My Heart's blog and ordered it. I fell in love with it at first sight. I love God and trees. To me, one of the most beautiful sounds is a soft breeze blowing through the leaves of a tree. Nature is being close to God for me.
I got this door at a yard sale a while back and I just made that burlap wreath at a church craft day and I hung it there. I think I may do something else with this down the line to.
I love when the sun shines through the window. When I wake up in the morning the sun shines on my side. This is hubs side of the bed. I found that table at a yard sale for $10 a while back. It was a perfect end table.
This is the window that the sun shines through in the morning. I am really excited for the spring and summer sun. It's so much brighter than winters sun. The sun instantly brightens my spirits. I don't like to bake in it though. I'm not a lay on the beach for hours type person. I just love the light that the sun emits and the warmth on my face as I close my eyes and lift my face to it.
I got that old pitcher in Georgia at a really awesome antique place. I loved Georgia. I really hope I can visit there again some time.
I had to wind up taking another picture because I had a pink fuzzy sock under there and a big clumpy doggy fur ball. My dog sheds horrifically, it drives me insane. You could pluck him as he walks by, it's terrible.
I think I may get a different blanket for the bottom but this is good for now. Definitely needs more pillows. I saw a really nice one in one of the stores in Allentown. It had burlap and lace. Thought maybe a fuzzy one. Our bedroom is tiny but it's cozy.
White is so crisp and clean. Every picture I see of bedrooms I like, I always get drawn to the ones with a white comforter or quilt. Our bedroom is tiny but
Wondering what color curtains to get. I don't know if I should white overload it. I was thinking of painting the furniture either all black or the body distressed white and stain the top dark walnut.
The set was Ralph Lauren, the quilt and shams. The original price was ridiculous, I would have never bought it at regular price. Home Goods is awesome, they have great prices.
So happy I found two of each sham. They were in different spots and I didn't think I'd have as set so when I found the other one, I was doing a jig. They were the last of each.
Target had a cute fluffy pillow that was fluffy that I may get for this. I think I need one more Euro sham too in the back. I will have to get a different one since they had no more at Home Goods. I will also have to wait a while because I will give my husband a heart attack if I spend any more money.
There are little cottages behind the Old Mill in Allentown. One of them became a consignment shop.
I saw this cross bracelet so I got it. I hardly ever wear bracelets but I really liked it. I picked up a few tops there too. She had great stuff in there. I love giving business to small businesses. It's much more personal in a world that is trying to make everything impersonal. It's always a pleasant experience too. We chat and get to know one another and I enjoy that.
Enjoy your day friends!
