Nearing the End!!!

When you home-school, some years seem to be more hectic than others. I am very happy to say that this year has been one of the less hectic years. We were able to take some really fun classes, do sports, and I am still relatively sane.  But, it is always nice when we begin to see classes finish. Last Wednesday the kids had their last Spanish class. Thanks to Aunt Dee, they learned a ton, and we finished with a cinco de mayo party!

Have a great Monday!

Feeling Gray

So here is my chair. I would like to use it in the boys room. I know that it is pretty feminine in the lines, but I really am trying to make their room more eclectic. I think I can make it work. I am in love with gray velveteen right now!

What to do...What to do? I am leaning toward the wood color of the first picture with Grey tufted velvet.
What do you think?

Around the house

I almost always have a project going on around the house; actually, I have a long list of things that need to get finished. But, sometimes that list seems tedious and boring. So, when I run across ideas that have a small price, big impact, and can be accomplished very quickly, I always get excited!

1. Paint an interior door a fun color.

Again I love a barn door as an interior door.  Especially painted yellow!!!

2. Add something green.

Awesome house plant


3. Add a cool basket. (I have a basket obsession.)

4. Re-do or update family photos.

6. Add some books!

I really love the use of antique books in wedding decor

It is a great rainy Sunday afternoon here. Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.
