Getting My Nesting On

Spring is in the air
and everyone knows what that means.
It's time for me to get to work.
I get spring fever really bad.

I thoroughly enjoy the rituals
of spring cleaning
and making the house come to life.

This year is a little different for me
because Mr. M and I purchased
a 1951 farmhouse and we
are in the process of renovating.

I've waited all winter to paint
and peel ugly wallpaper
and paint
and sew pillows
and paint
and hang new curtains...
did I mention paint?
(Let's just say there's a certain red in my bedroom that is giving me angst.)

I also have the need to purchase
some new furniture.
As newlyweds, Mr. M and I have
tried to meld our furniture together.
Some of it has worked and some of it...
well, let's just say....not so much.

(I'm not trying to say names but Mr. Couch and Mr. know...)

I've been looking at some barstools
and a small table to make a sitting area
and I stumbled upon this store.
All I can say is WOW!!!!!

This place has EVERYTHING you could ever imagine.
I'm not kidding.
I got so sidetracked by looking at everything else they had
that I still haven't decided on which barstools I want.

(I have a few dozen in mind...A girl has the right to change her mind.)

C'est la vie!!!!

I'm also hosting a few giveaways over the next two weeks.
There is just something about spring that I love
and want to share with everybody.

If anyone else is suffering from
nesting syndrome and spring fever like me,
then I hope you find a cure
or at least the right shade of paint.


  1. Hi! Just received an email from sweet Sarah that we are partners for her swap. And, it looks like we have a mutual friend...Miss Jodie Lejuene. As I was looking at your blog I saw a photo of her! I love that girl.

    So wanted to say hello and introduce myself...It's funny---I too am in the midst of spring cleaning AND contemplating a bar stool purchase! I've had these stools that are way too short for my counter, but love them so much that I have told my family to make them work....I believe after 7 years though that it is time to get some taller ones!

  2. Good grief woman - when you get done with yours will you come help me with mine? LOLOL I started painting my bedroom a few months ago... "started" being the operative word. haHA!

    LOVE the bar stools and table! Oh my gosh... makes me want to clean.

    Or paint.

    Or come help you - put me to work. LOLOL

  3. No cure... but paint sounds good! Have fun!!

  4. Thanks for stopping by! I had never seen your blog before, and I read back quit a ways -- Really enjoyed it. You sound like my kind of girl!

    Hope you get your house straightened out. When you meld two households, a lot of stuff doesn't make the cut! I did just that 20 years ago, and I think we have very very little today that we started with then!



You know you've got something to say...
