A Spring Makeover!

Sometimes it is the little things. A new blouse, a change in hair styles, moving items around in our homes to create a different little look that just makes us smile and SHINE! Notice the difference here? Today, my new SHINE is a spring blog makeover!

Much appreciation and gratitude to Jan & Tom, the husband and wife team of Rose Haven for sharing their time and talent, with a beautiful new springy blog! Every week they post a new blog makeover as a give away. I was thrilled to find out yesterday that I won blog makeover #5 ! Week 6 is up now, so head on over to their blog to enter if you would like a pretty new makeover too.

While out and about in town Saturday, my daughter and I saw this:

We slowed down and my daughter snapped the photo from the car window, all the while we are laughing about how funny we must have appeared to the 'chicken'!

Then my daughter and I headed over to a baby shower for a friend of hers. They have known each other since attending the same daycare together and throughout their school years. The shower was held at her grandmother's home which was any designers thrill! Elegant and beautiful.

They know the baby is a girl, little Miss Emma is expected to make her debut in about 20 days.

After the shower, my daughter and I stopped by Hobby Lobby to drop off an art piece that I have had for many years. A watercolor of a local round barn (and you should know by now, I LOVE old barns!) I am having it matted to place in my 'junk' store find of a beautiful old wooden frame. It won't be ready for a few weeks, but I can't wait to share it!

Hobby Lobby had their floral items on 50% off this week. So I picked up a couple of things to add a touch of spring to the house. I wanted something for my wall window in the living room. Found a vine on clearance for 59 cents! And a dogwood 'branch' for half off. So for about $2, my window now has a new spring makeover too.
