Have you even had the feeling that you aren't really in control of your life, because there are so many external factors that are? Well that's how I feel right now...and when I start to feel that way, I start to find ways to 'change' things that I can control, like decorating. Plus this winter just seems to be dragging by...so when I was in JoAnn's the other day to pick up that ONE zipper and nothing else, I saw that home dec fabric was 50% off and I had a 15% off total purchase coupon. I found myself being drawn to these bright and sunny patterns/colors. I picked up $25 worth of fabric and made my living room "look like Spring", according to my daughter.
I just took the fabric that I had picked up (guessing really how much I would need when I bought it, but ended up with 1 yard each of the 2 florals and 1/2 a yard each of the yellow geometric and blue/green used for the pillow in the middle) and managed to get 7 slip covered pillows and one little curtain. The big pillow on the right is one I already had and it kind of matches.
And now I have a reason to smile when I walk in my living room.
I think I'm going to paint the walls a pale blue next. My dream would be to recover that ugly but with oh so great lines sofa (we inherited it when we bought our house) in a dove grey.
