Learned What?

I didn't plan on spring cleaning my computer today.
It was just too pretty outside.

But it had been giving me problems
that I had to keep fixing over and over again.
I spent most of my day backing up files and purging.
Somewhere today, in between laundry,
vacuuming, and dusting
I realized this blog was one year old.

As I sat there,
reading and deciding what was to be saved,
I had to laugh a little, cry a little,
even humble myself 
and be proud just a little too.

I noticed a pattern, at least I thought I did.

Maybe I even matured?
Maybe I learned a lot about myself?
Maybe I made some new friends?

All of that and more.


We are still in working mode here.
The floors are ordered and 
the "floor man" has been out to measure.
I am still finding some new and some not-so-new
treasures to scatter about.

I hope it all
comes together...

A Sneak Peek
at our transformation so far.

This is a brand new color for me.
I think I chose it because I wanted a challenge.

This is what started me in that direction.
I fell in love with this bowl
at HomeGoods in Kansas City.
It had to come home with me so 
twelve dollars later, it was mine.


  1. As I began to decorate each room in my home, it always started with one item. One item that I fell in love with, that set the stage for each room!!

    Love the blue!!

    1. Thanks Debbie. I have been enjoying it! Hope it comes together.

  2. it is a beautiful bowl and a great starting place for you decorating... i have been blogging for 5 years and it has changed my life in many ways

  3. Congrats on your one year of blogging. It is amazing the changes that it makes in your life, isn't it?
    Love your new bowl. I have a love for turquoise even though I don't have much of it-xo Diana

  4. One year! Time flies by! I can't wait to see what you've done. Love the color!
    You SHOULD be proud of yourself!
