Time For Change

So are the birds singing a little bit louder this year? I think Mother Nature turned the base up.  I love love love the change of seasons.  No matter what time of year it is.  I was feeling the need to change something myself.  So yes the spray can and I spent some time together.  I put everything that "screamed" spring that I had already in my home...and if it didn't...I made it "scream" with white spray paint and a "Barely Jade" paint color I bought.  The little bird house actually had  a star on it and was a mustard color..man I wish I had a before shot!




This is before the spray can found them...everything was sprayed with exception to the Mason Jars and the green plate. 

Mr. Right and I decided to sell our house and so I have been busy getting it ready to show.  The company my husband works for is going under...I know ScArY!  So his last day is Friday.  Now that we aren't sure about the future, we think it's best to sell so we can save our credit.  The real truth, underneath everything, is that I am looking forward to a new adventure.  This is just a trial that will strengthen my marriage and put into perspective the real things that matter in life.  Yes these type of things drive me to my knees often but I have a peaceful feeling that we'll be okay.


We replaced our old bead-board and painted it.  I hope the new owners appreciate the love that has gone into this house;)!

    I love the work you did on the wall and display shelf. You're right -- it does scream "spring". Well done. I think your house will show beautifully!
