Happy Saturday! Is it cold where you are? They’re saying we’re getting ready to thaw out here and I so can’t wait. We awoke yesterday to frigid temps, ice and snow remaining on the neighborhood roadways, and frozen pipes. When the wind blows, the outdoors sorta creaks and crackles. My poor little frozen cottage. Where are you Spring? The kiddos have been off from school all week, that’s one long snow day. There’s been lots of fun sledding and hot chocolate, but I think we’re all ready to walk out the front door without hearing the snow crunch underfoot. And if I eat one more meal piled high with comfort foods, I’m afraid my “one size up” jeans won’t be zippin’. Who knew that a week of ice and snow came with a muffin top?I’ve been cooped up and that always gets me going, thinking about what I should paint or how to rearrange. I’ve been considering painting a couple of furniture pieces including the base of this vintage sewing machine, maybe lighter. And as you know I love to rearrange, it’s so noncommittal and an easy way to get a fresh look. I always have to think a bit before I come at a piece of furniture with my paint brush though.
I’m totally into this Country Living Decorating With White book I received as a gift. It talks about using texture and contrast and there’s a section highlighting black and white rooms and another on whites mixed with woods. It has loads of white cottage inspiration.
