I hope your weekend was a good one. I got some work done, made a dent in my magazine stack and the hubs and I finished watching season 2 of the Orange is the New Black. We are anxiously awaiting season 3 which is supposed to debut sometime in June.
I just wanted to drop in today to share the plans for my spring bedroom refresh. Because I’ve decorated our bedroom on a foundation of black and white and use color as the accent, I get the urge each season to change the accent colors. It’s a good thing I love color and love to change-up my decor.
What started as a love for these pillows (which I may have shown you before) and the assurance from the hubs that he could embrace pink…
has turned into a plan to freshen up the bedroom for spring.
Here’s what I have planned:
New black bedding (some custom and some diy)
New pillows for the bed (oh how I love pretty pillows)
Create a gallery wall with LOVE as the theme (I can’t wait to share the incredible source of these beautiful images with you)
New accent pieces to introduce more gold into the room
I’m hoping everything falls into place because I love the feel of the inspiration board~
Stay tuned, I plan to have the makeover done by mid-April.

Growing up my mom would make Easter baskets for me and my brother. She went to great lengths to create those baskets and would always make them more than a basket full of candy. It wasn’t unusual for me to find slippers or crafting supplies in my basket and my brother to find socks or drum sticks. Every year the baskets felt special and unique, and they always brought smiles to our faces.

Hello there and welcome to spring!
I hope everyone had a great weekend and found time to indulge in something you love. It was pretty quiet around my parts with a good portion of the weekend rained out. One of the highlights of our weekend was purchasing a new vacuum. After some research and trying to decide between a Dyson and a Shark, we decided on the Shark Rotator Powered Lift Away. Let me tell you this vaccum is awesome! I can’t believe the amount of carpet fuzz and dust it picked up.
One of the other things I was able to do this weekend was to pop into one of my favorite thrift stores. I literally had about 10 minutes to look around but was able to find a few treasures in that short period of time (some for me and some for my Etsy shop) and happy that I spent less than $25.
Here’s what I scored…
This gold ice bucket is a vintage piece from designer George Briard. It was a deal at $8.00 and is signed by the artist on the bottom. I’ll be putting this piece in my Etsy shop.
I’ve been looking for a small accent table to place in our bathroom and came across this one for $5.00. The style is definitely not me so I’m going to paint it black or gold, or maybe a combination of the two.
I love vintage brass pieces and thought this brass damper hook was a great find. It’s going in my Etsy shop.
And the last thing I found were these metal wall bins. They were $1.50 each and I’m planning to stencil numbers on the front of each one and then hang them on a wall in our kitchen.
Pretty good scores right?!
Now that spring is here, I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of antique and thrift shopping.
Have you had any great thrifting finds lately?
