I have been busy…

Although posts have been non-existent I have acutally been getting a lot done around here…

I’ve painted our family room, hall (up & down stairs) and entry…which of course leads to repainting trim…

this little table was turquoise…

my slipcovers have been fitted and are back at the “shop” being sewn…

 

the ottoman will be green with a polka dot peek-a-boo…something like this…

Effortless Style

and I’ve been playing with Instagram in case you didn’t notice…

I received my ebay purchase…

It’s huge…and very sheer, pretty sure if I used it for pillows  they would last a hot minute before getting trashed…on to plan B

I have a HUGE list of to-do’s before my little home party in a few weeks…posting will be slow so bear with me…

don’t look at the walls, I really don’t know what the hell I was thinking choosing baby boy blue… those will be changing shortly…

I’d like to get some different pulls for the cabinet doors…

vintage sari…

I went to a home party last night and ended up booking a party so my friend (the hostess) could get a freebie something…now that means I will be doing a whole lot of redoing around chez lemondrop…

I did win this vintage sari from this seller on ebay which will make great throw pillows in my family room

stalker?? perhaps…

Some might call me obsessed, a stalker…I’d like to say I’m a really, really BIG fan!!

I know everyone has seen Bailey’s Mr. Banks on Design Sponge and floating around the blogosphere…if not, then I’m not sure what to say to you…

I am getting some major inspiration and creative juices flowing from her spread.  I was starting to lose confidence in decisions I was making but now, I’m going for it!!

Here style is exactly what I love…bright & somewhat traditional, tastefully quirky…

I’ll be adding fringe to anything I can get my hands on…

I’m getting a green couch, it won’t be velvet or tufted but I can live with that..

I’m going to give my chandy a face lift because this one is so good it makes me want to slap your momma…

I loved this fabric for her nursery…

and think I’ve found a decent substitute for my family room chairs at a hell of a price…

and this will be my green couch…

extremely indecisive…

I really need to make some decisions about my family room

I had decided to do the loveseat in cream and the chairs in the polka dot ikat…

Well, that was before I saw Bailey McCarthy’s home tour on Design Sponge

That green couch is calling my name…and I can still throw in some pink!!  One problem, I'd be slipcovering my couch and loveseat which was not the plan…

I’m pretty sure the hubby will have an aneurysm when I tell him my new plan…
