In other news--spring has sprung, and I've got the itch. The spring itch. I've been moving things around in my house, eyeing places that look a little too bare and are begging for some attention, and putting out as many light, airy, and green things I can get my hand on.
I have been holding onto some bridal credit at Batte Furniture from our wedding, slowly eeking it out a little at a time. I really have enjoyed waiting a while before I used all my credit at various places...it's a great way to be able to fund a rainy day shopping trip! It's all gone now though, except for a big chunk we had left at Batte. But I put a large dent in it today with...drumroll please...............
THIS!! I am so excited about it! I have really been wanting a bench for our bedroom, and I finally found it. It fits our style perfectly, and I really think it looks good in the room. I did some other rearranging in our room as well as the rest of the house--it's amazing what that can do for your house and your psyche! It's really refreshing. We are going to hang this painting over the bench. Lisa, Taylor's mom, painted this and gave it to us the night we got engaged. It's from a picture that was taken of us at Taylor's Old South KA formal our senior year. It's really special to us.
We've had it in our room, but now it has the perfect place to hang. Another new addition is this plate in our kitchen. I was going through my parents' hall closet last week looking for something and found it. It was a wedding gift from my grandmother's old boss, the Vice Chancellor of UMC, to my parents. They had never really used it, and so mom sent it with me to use in our kitchen. My grandmother really loved working at the medical center--that job was very special to her. She passed away just a few months ago, and so it makes me really happy to have this little reminder of her in my kitchen.
I made a few other changes, but I won't bore you with those. I just wanted to share a little of my springy-ness!
