Spring Mantel

Hello,

It's suppose to warm up this weekend.

I hope Spring will start soon.


This past week we had snow and thought,

Will it never end?


I have been trying to update the house for
Spring.

Lots of wonderful times ahead....

We are looking forward to celebrating our daughter's 4th Birthday.

She was born on the first day of Spring.

The theme this year is
Makeup, Nails, and Pink Panther.

We will see what we come up with........

She loves Pink Panther.

We are also looking forward to our
Spring Break vacation.

Heading to sunny California to be exact
Coronado....

We love that place. So many fun things to do.

Back to decorating.

I have updated our fireplace mantel....

I have one question.

Should I paint the mantel white?

I go back n forth with this.

When we first moved in our Cape House it was all about wall paper, stencil, and all dark wood.

We ended up painting our family room all white.

I have never really shown pictures before because I am still trying to finish decorating.

Lots of changes through out the years.

I left the mantel dark for now because I felt nostalgic that there is something left from when we started updating our house.

What do you think?

Should we paint it white?

I would appreciate your opinion.

Left of the fire place is my desk nook which I love and where I am writing this post from....

To the right is our sun room which I am slowly updating for Spring/Summer season with a few changes.

I will post more pictures of our family room in the future so that you can get a feeling of it.

I am also working on a blank wall on the opposite side of the
photo below.

Let me know what you think?




We are updating the fire screen soon too. We are looking to see whether to change the screen to black or open up the fireplace.


Happy Decorating and have a beautiful weekend!

Take care,
Claudia

Tulips, Tulips, & more Tulips......

Hello Everyone,

I have been gone for awhile....

My family and I have been sick with ear aches, fevers, bronchitis, and stuffed up heads....

Not so much fun the last two weeks.

I can't wait to catch up with your blogs and take a look at your latest projects.

I came across this today and it made me smile.

I'm anxiously waiting to go out and shop for more tulips to brighten up our house....

One or two more days and we should all be better.

Take a look at this fun festival happening in April...

I wish I lived closer to stop by.

Have you visited?

Beautiful pictures.

Have a good rest of the week.

Take care,
