Random thoughts on a Monday morning:
1. First really good yard sale of the season on Saturday. I knew it was going to be good by the lettering on the sign. I found a vintage swivel chair for the office and a mid-century dresser for the upstairs bedroom and a tiny table that I may or may not paint.
2. Where have all the really good romantic comedies gone? Every time I think I may go to the movies, I look at all that’s playing are horror films or superhero movies. No judgement Superman, but I need a really good Sleepless in Seattle sometimes.
3. My littlest twin is in Nicaragua this week with my mother on a mission trip. She was so excited about going. I am excited for her, too, but I’ll be more excited when she’s home.
4. The new Trading Spaces comes back on April 7 on TLC. I can’t wait. Did you watch the original one? I hope they bring back Hilde and her flower walls.
Let’s see what the internet has been up to last week.
My favorite decorating budget is FREE.
It looks like Lauren’s is too.
And for a little more free.
These farmhouse spice labels are free downloads.
See the entire set here.
And look at this simple spring vignette.
It’s so fresh and so easy to recreate.
And everything about this spring tour makes me happy.
This is one of my favorite blogs.

And in random news this week:
These dyed Easter eggs
This house tour
These fun DIYs
And these Easter egg ideas.
When did Easter get even cuter? 🙂
One more for the road.
I’m speaking again this year at the Becoming conference, April 20-21.
It’s one of my favorite conferences. It’s at the beautiful Lake Junaluska conference center in North Carolina and it’s SO AFFORDABLE—only $55.50 for the conference. I’m going to be teaching a session on budget decorating for your home and a DIY workshop on painting wooden signs.
PS If you are in the Atlanta area, I’d love to say hello and shop together.
I’ll be at the Kirkland’s in Buford, GA TOMORROW at 5:00pm! There are the best coupons and I’m giving a decorating talk and styling a bookcase and there are giveaways and so much more!
Hope to see you there!
