R&R - Renew and Refresh for Spring

Spring is the lightest, airiest season.  Time to de-clutter and freshen up.  Refresh and renew.  Breathe in all that warm fresh air.  

I've been doing a little refreshing and renewing, but admittedly, I would love to do even more. "Simplify" has been the motto around here for the last few months, and spring just gets my organizational juices flowing.  I've also pulled out those Easter decorations, and revamped the mantel for spring.  Here's a peek at what I've done......



Here, I simply printed and framed the words I was feeling that day.  My motto for spring this year:


This little birdie spoke to me as I was strolling through TJ Maxx.  My kind of pet!


A sneak peek at some pillows I made!  Perhaps I'll do a separate tutorial on those.  I think they really freshen up my dull old sofa!




Now, if I could only get to refreshing those dark roots.....;-)

    1. Thanks Kim! I've had those candlesticks forever, and they are definitely a go to. I recently gave them a coat of cream paint though...much better than gold :)

  2. This is so pretty Lynette! The colors are so fresh together. I love how you achieved gorgeous balance without resorting to perfect symmetry; that's definitely something I need to work on. And the cushions are to die for - you are so lucky you have sewing skills! So nice to see a new post from you :-) ~Kerri

    1. Thanks Kerri! Still want to get WP going, but haven't had much time to work on it. Like I said before, I'd rather decorate than mess with the computer! But yes, I'd love to post more too, when I get up and running!

    1. Hi! Paint color is Sherwin Williams Nantucket Dune, but the niche above the fireplace is a little darker. I used Restoration Hardware's Flax up there. I'm actually getting ready to paint that back to white. Thanks so much for stopping by!!
