More Ideas for Spring Decorating!

Now that Spring is here - and the flowers are in bloom - why not take advantage of this in your decorating? The flowers in the Spring are some of the most colorful and pretty.  Cut them from your garden or buy them in the store or  nursery and display them in your home.  They will add life and color!
Bring "Spring" inside by cutting branches and flowers and displaying them in different sized, clear vases - which are very popular this Spring!  They make a great centerpiece, or display them on top of your furniture or mantel.
Create your own tablescape for spring by using colorful plates, glassware, placemats and napkins in decor appropriate for the time of year (or holiday, special occasion or the season of the year).  Or use  neutral colored plates, such as white or cream.  You can add personality to your table with accessories, such as flowers, candles, napkins or napkin rings.
Have fun decorating for spring!  If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at:

However, now that I’ve been living in the same house for the past five years, my “stuff” has been multiplying exponentially. Not only is the crawl space under the house filled up completely, but we now have a garage that has no more extra room – especially for a car. And it's migrating to my two spare bedrooms and the closets are bulging at the seams. I'm really tired of the piles which seem to grow on a weekly basis. And eve…

A Relaxing Bedroom Color

Your bedroom should be calm, it should be a place of rest and relaxation. But all too often it becomes a place to catch up on work on and watch TV. While bad habits are hard to change you can still make your bedroom the oasis it ought to be using one simple trick-- paint it blue.


The color blue soothes the mind and promotes physical relaxation. It is a color that represents peace and tranquility, and it promotes calmness. It has been shown to slow the metabolism, suppress appetite and even to help reduce blood pressure and heart rate.
