Winter / Valentine Master Bedroom



It's so hard for me to decorate after Christmas. 
  I would happily skip right into decorating for spring, ,  but it's still a little early to do that......so I will try my best to decorate the master bedroom in a Winter /  Valentine theme even tho my heart is singing SPRING.

Whimsical Farmhouse Valentine / Windmill Mantel


I had been thinking about designing a mantel using wind mills as the theme,    and I couldn't decide whether to do the wind mill mantel or a Valentine mantel.

Simple Valentine Mantel



Packing away all the Christmas decor has been OVERWHELMING to say the least.....lol!    The thought of getting out Valentine totes and unpacking them has not been very appealing to me,   so I decided to just put out a few simple pieces to just give a hint of Valentine's Day.

Laundry Room Makeover Reveal


The laundry room makeover all began with the washer deciding it would stop working the first week in December.    It had been about 7 years since the laundry room had been painted,  so we decided that when we took out the old washer and dryer we would paint over the pale yellow walls with a fresh coat of white paint .

My First Big Project for 2020....the Utility Room


Our washer decided to stop working the first week in December........wouldn't you know it would quit working around the holidays!    We decided to replace both the washer and dryer since they were over 15 years old.     The new ones we picked out were a special order and didn't come in until after Christmas.     In fact they won't be delivered until tomorrow.
