Spring Has Sprung On My Nailhead Sofa

by | Mar 10, 2017 | Home Tour

Spring has sprung!  Until it didn’t.  🙁

Remember the other day when I was all about the great 60 degree day we were having here in Minnesota?

Yea, it’s 2 degrees today.

We had two days of high winds out of the west, and with strong wind and temps in the upper 40’s, all of the ice melted off the lake.  There were actually swans swimming near our little beach and the sun was a true, warm, early, Spring sun.

Now there is a thin layer of ice by said beach.  But ironically, the swans still showed up to catch some breakfast.

By the way…don’t swans head south for the winter? That water has to be cold.

Anyway, I’ll google it. I am getting way off track on what I wanted to tell you.

Yesterday I spent the day with this little nugget.

She is the daughter of a friend of mine and her name is Piper. Her Mommy went back to work but her daycare provider isn’t available until the first of April.

My day to play with her is Thursday. Her Grandma and her Mommy’s cousin play with her the other days of the week.

Yesterday was my first Thursday with her and we had so much fun! Unfortunately for me, she took a looong nap, so I absorbed some major TLC cable channel viewing time.

There was an episode of Love It or List. It was the episode where the wife was a contractor. The couple bought a fixer upper, but she was so busy working on everyone else’s home, that she had a lot of projects yet to fix up in her own home.

And that got me thinking.

The recent bout of warm weather put me in the mood to “Springitize” my house. But then it got cold and I had a rush of Etsy orders for others that were “Springitizing” their homes.

So my house went on the back burner.

But today is a new day!

Today is the day, that I start with some fresh spring pillows.

I’ll give you a full room view after I complete the whole area, but for now here is a quick Winter to Spring before and after.


Let the Springitizing commence!
