Dreaming of Summer!

I have been wanting to incorporate more white, and light into my home. I have dark wood floors, dark furniture, dark curtains, and I am ready to shake off the heaviness of winter and let the sunshine pour onto my soul. So when I heard that Songbird was having a WHITE party, well, lets just say that that was all the nudge I needed! I pulled things from all over my house and yard to add to my white collection. I stole borrowed! a few things from my Mom. I did do a little spray painting and a little crafting, but it didn't cost me a dime. I love the concept of shopping your home to find the stuff you need. A little tip I learned from reading blogs!



Anyways, I think the pictures speak for themselves mostly. I will have a rundown of tips for the sand footprints, the wine bottle, the wreath, the shadow box, and the pitcher later in the week. I had a soooo much fun doing this project! And I can't help but feel sunny and warm, and RELAXED when I see it!

  4. Shopping your home is the best! Unfortunately, though, nothing I have is that summery... maybe time for some spray paint!

  7. How fun. I am working on a beachy mantel. I don't usually do that look, but I thought it would be fun for summer. I like your footprints!
