Almost spring!

Just thought I would post a few pictures from around the house today. I have been feeling like it needed some sprucing up around here. In general it needs some COLOR in my opinion...a little spring make-over so to speak. So while Hobby Lobby had a big sale on prints and art a while ago, I purchased this cute little matted print. (I think it only cost me $9.00!) And the chandelier print was also purchased there. You can't tell from the picture but the black chandelier image is actually fuzzy velvet. (This one also cost me $9.00! Such a deal.) I have it hung in the back hallway which is also my office. I have had them sitting here just waiting for me to get my act together and get them hung up. Sometimes I feel like I have so many "projects" in progress...this was one of the many! So it felt great to get it done, and it's so refreshing to have something new and spring-like to look at while I work. Very inspiring! (Oh, and the "Love what you do" plaque is from Hallmark and it's printed on a ceramic tile.)

I like to redecorate from time to time even if I don't have anything "new" to put out. I just go around the house and kind of reorganize things. Change them around, take some down, and then pull them out later as if they are brand new, even though I may have had them for years! This is a little antique wire message board that I had gotten last summer on a trip to Colorado. I had it sitting here all this time, and it was time I found it a home. I am still playing around with what I want to hang on it, but this is just what I stuck up there so far. It will definitely be changed out frequently!

And here is one more project that I have had sitting on my desk for a few weeks. It's an old EXIT sign that doesn't light up anymore, but I had envisioned maybe putting different patterned papers behind each letter? I am not quite sure what I will do with it. It needs to be cleaned up a little first. I liked it though, it was unique and only cost me $5!
Any ideas? I would love some! Hope you all had a great St. Patrick's Day. I am so lame, I totally forgot to even wear green. (I didn't get pinched though!) At least the kids had it on...that was totally accidental! LOL.

I have that "love what you do" sign in my scrappy area! :) Great minds think alike!

I think that exit sigh is awesome. I like the ideas of paper on the inside. I think it might also be cool to paint the inside and rub it off or antique it some how. You have such cool creations!! The pictures are really pretty and so colorful. Love this time of year. :)
Miss you,
