Fluffing Up the Living Room

While the hubs' away, the chick will play. Or in this instance I'll redo the living room and family room walls. Yep, Love Bunny is away most of the day, will come home to eat dinner and go up north to teach a class about 3 hrs away from here and be back tomorrow evening. I've been waiting for him to leave to give the house a good cleaning—which in my case means dusting. I hate dusting and don't do it regularly enough to the embarrassment of hubs, but I don't care. Really, I don't. This is a dusty area with all the farms around us so we're gonna get dust!

This morning I was shaking rugs out back and saw this little clump of moss. I hope it grows and fills in around the grapes, but I love moss!

Now, these pictures are for the sky but the little lanterns I made (and are so dirty from the winter!) were hanging there and thought I'd show you our cloudy sky beyond the hanging jars. Cloudy and rain today and tomorrow.

So, one thing leads to another and here I am rearranging some wall decor around the living room. It's times like this I wish more devotees of romantic shabby chic decor lived around here because I've much to give away.

I'll post more pix tomorrow for Pink Saturday to show what it looks like now...if I finish in time. Sigh...


  1. I can't wait to see the finished project!!!!!! I also can't wait until after tax season when my dear friend, Julie, will be helping me with the family room. I am possibly painting it. I am not sure yet. But I do know that 1/2 of the room will be a sewing/crafting room and the other 1/2 will be a library/TV room. It shall be so cool! I just wish my mom were here to enjoy it too. I am going to put up some family pictures and lots of other wall hangings that I have. I have a desk that I am going to repaint white. I think it will look better white. I also am going to paint the bookshelves and DVD shelves white too so it will all match nicely. I am counting down the days until it gets done!

    I look forward to Saturday to see your pictures! You so inspire me!!!!!! Now that I am feeling less sad, I am anxious to get this stuff done.

  2. I always look forward to a glimpse of your rooms, Connie.

  3. Oh, do I know how one thing leads to another. I've gotten good at sticking to the ONE thing at a time that needs to be done!! Most of the time.

    Can't wait to see your other photos.


  4. Well, you have to take advantage of your husband's absence! I mean, what's a girl to do? Can't wait to see how it all looks, Connie.


  5. Oh! Really nice job when your husband's absence as well as i motivate for some thing doing when any member absence in my house.Thanks

  6. There's nothing like a bit of Spring cleaning!
    De cluttering is my mantra for 2011.
    Good luck, just don't put it all back,that's what I tend to do!


Comments are so nice and I thank all of you that leave one for me.
