Busy Bee

I've been quite the busy bee lately....

sewing lots of custom orders....


and dreaming....

of spring.....

and color.

Along with all this....

I've also been busy planning some new designs for pillows, napkins and other linens.

And you know what comes with spring.....right....

the urge to re-paint and re-do....

now with that being said....

I'm also busy changin' up the rooms in this old farmhouse....

yep....you heard right....helping Mary with our Urban Plains project has got me itchin' to do some work to to this old gal....

and no I'm not talking about me guys...I'm talking about the house....geesh.

I know...I know....it was less than a year ago that I re-did the house....

well...in decorating years....that's an eternity....

so I'm on a quest....to re-vamp and re-fresh.


  1. Re-freshing is always nice. Paint doesn't have to change. Just changing some things around or even changing the purpose and use of a room can really make a difference. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

  2. You may be busy but painting and sewing must just be a delightful way to by busy! LOL

    Can't wait to see how you refresh your decor! I'm sure it will by FAB - U - LOUS!

  3. Hello,
    It's fun to change things around a bit especially during the month of January.
    We are doing some decorating around here. Can't wait to see! Have a good week.

  4. I love to freshen the house up and move things around a bit.....lucky for me, this spring I get to move a whole house! LOL
    Quick question - where the heck are you getting all of this energy chickee? Love it :)
    Cant wait to join you on your "quest"!

    ps - looking forward to your new designs too - yay ;)

  5. I am slapping up a coat of Ivory Tusk on my kitchen cabinets and they are looking so much better than my first attempt at painting. The hallway is next.

  6. what else is there to do in these cold months, but a home refresh??!!
    i'm sure it will be beautiful...

  7. All of it sounds like fun! From the sewing and designing to the refreshing of your spaces. Have fun and make sure you show us what you've been up to :)

  8. Your house is already so pretty...what are you going to do now? I can't wait to see what you come up with :)

  9. A whole year already! I can't wait to see what you're up to. I always get so motivated and inspired when I see your pretty rooms.
    I love that red pillow...hopefully that will be in your store. :)
    I can't believe it's been a year and we still haven't hooked up...let's do so SOON.
    Hope you're surviving all the snow!

  10. Oh, I am loving the colour combinations in those pillows!

  11. I can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve. Refreshing is so much fun and seeing your fluffing is a great thing.

  12. I can't wait to see what you do...I bet it will be just dreamy...



  13. Cant wait to see your new stuff!! Hugs,Rachel ;)

  14. it's all this gray outside i swear...that, and how I slipped everything white for awhile...and you know first hand, when Fifi came, it was awhile ago!! so, you are right, it's time for some color, a fresh approach to decorating...
    are you getting into graphic prints? I never thought I would, but I really am liking the graphic colors I see this year...

    can't wait to see what you and Mary put together!

  15. Oh oh...did you say napkins..they are indeed my latest fetish,I have enough pillows to sink a ship so I have moved on!!!! I can not wait for spring either,got a real itch this year...maybe cause we are going back to Ireland..I just want winter to go away!!! Oh and I have to tell you that EVERYONE loves the # napkins..they are one of my favorite things in the kitchen!! x0

  16. Yes this month just ask for moving around new inspiration and redecorating.
