A Bit of Freshening

This weekend, being very bitterly cold, I used the time to "freshen" the house. All the garlands from the holidays are now put away until next year, and in their place some ivy and other types of garland. Also some pretty flowers.

I am not sure I like the garland here, just kind of playing with it. I did however change the items on the dresser top around.
The piano looks a bit more victorian than is my usual style. I usually attempt cottage or romantic country...
I like the way the clementines and Pink Lady apples look in the wooden trough. Very perky on a cold winter's day!
A bit of Ivy over the sliding doors. Can you see the our snow out the doors?

Have a lovely day!

Very Pretty!

I have begun the bathroom painting project. I had Mikey measuring for me this morning and then both boys peeling wall paper border and taking down shelves, etc. This was in between Reading, history and Grammar.

I think if we tackle it a little bit at a time...we will get it done this week.

You know I love the victorian look on your piano!

I would gladly come and help you paint Becky. Maybe tomorrow after bowling? The kids could play the wii????

That would be fun!
I have some patching to do where the former wallpaper border pulled off a drywall layer...I'll have to see if that is done in time.
