Hello Lovelies! Spring Colours Week 2010: Purple Day. Beautymist (c) 2010. Back in 2010, I participated in the Flickr group called " Spring Colours Week".

It's Springtime! Time for a Makeover!

Hello Lovelies! wonderful interior styling by the happy home. You'll find exactly 101 ideas for Spring makeover of your place right here. As to me, I tackled several rooms. First, I have decluttered! Then... The living-room: I have added some "Spring flair" to my living-room, by replacing rich brown velvet pillows by a light off-white cotton and one accent linen one. To add some pizzazz, I gathered all my chartreuse accessories just by the now off-white sofa. Mine is more of a settee, really. Cute. ;-) The color... [Lire la suite]

Speaking of pink and the use of colors... Jan of the famed... [Lire la suite]

Sunday Deeds & Toughts

Hello Lovelies! Spring comes in all kinds of blue hues... photo by Beautymist. So far, i’ve been to the countryside for a day and a half. Had a long walk in the woods.

I made a fire from scratch in the fireplace. Did some yummy meals, talked to friends, learned to crochet, relaxed with tea and decor ... [Lire la suite]
