Yet Another Clean-Up

So like I've said before...I can never keep my sewing room clean!  I can't blame it on not having enough space.  I'm sure if I had all the space in the world I would still find a way to make it look like the room just blew up!  I have been trying to do better lately.

I spent an entire day on attempting to make places for things.  We are moving soon, so we aren't doing anything major in the way of re-vamping, but I tried my best.  Here are a few pics of the little nook in my sewing room that loves to collect things.  We'll see how long I can keep it this way!

Fresh Designs

Justin and I are still on the hunt for a house.  It is a fun and exhausting process all at once.  We look forward to finding one soon!  Always love looking for fun decor ideas.   Love these cheery designs...

White As Snow

 I am so excited about the warmer weather, but the snow was so beautiful last week! God is so amazing! I was driving home and saw these gorgeous scenes...I just had to take some pictures!  I called Justin and told him he had to grab the camera and hop in the car.  We went on a mini adventure trudging through the snow to find the best shots.  It was so fun!  I'm so glad he likes to be spontaneous with me.

Old Treasures Re-Vamped

I have always loved revamping old things, whether it be clothes, decor or furniture.  I guess I've re-discovered that by having to be inventive if I want unique furniture in our home.  I've also had the opportunity to work with Sharon Taylor of  She's opening an adorable little shop this month featuring re-vamped furniture and decor.  I have learned lots through working with her.

My mom is a very talented Woman who knows how to do just about anything.  She's taught me lots and I have loved working with her on a few projects of my own lately.  Thanks mom! My sister in law helped too...thanks Becky=)  Becky also re-vamped an amazing couch.  She transformed it into the most beautiful piece of furniture.  I'll try and get pics from her.   I don't have pictures of the chairs that we recovered yet.  I'm saving them for our new house.  I'll post them as soon as we move! 

Here are a few pieces of furniture that someone put lots of love into.  The first few are before and afters.  Thought they might inspire you like they did me.

         ...LOVE the simple shelf.  Crazy what a cute print will do

        ...wouldn't this cute vintage floral be so neat on this gold chair?
