Weekend in review

My friend Lynn helped me with a little bit of home decorating on Saturday.  I've had some of the walls in my home painted a rich terracotta colour, and Lynn stencilled some flowers onto the freshly painted walls.  I love the look of the guest bedroom...



while Lynn stencilled, I painted the econo-heater in my bedroom,
and touched up paint on the ceiling and walls

A year after moving in, all the new curtains are up in my home - big yay!  This is what my bedroom looked like before with the awful yellow office blinds left by the previous owners, and now with the new curtains.  I call it 'bollywood meets french country lane', but I love the soft feminine look

I love circles, so I'm delighted with these curtains in my craft room

I spent some time packing for a 4 day scrapbooking retreat next weekend.  If I'm organised with pre-packed layouts, I can get sooo much done.
Stay warm and have a great week!


  1. I LOVE the curtains and newly painted walls. Had fun doing the stencilling!!!

    Well done on all your packing for the weekend. Can't wait ... it is the only thing keeping me sane this week.

  2. You have an awesome friend. I love the terracotta colour and the stencilled flowers look great. You are really turning your house into a home.

  3. Your guestroom looks so inviting and I do love the stencils on the wall. The colour on the wall is divine (did you use the hotel room as inspiration?) ... very nice, but yours looks nicer.

    As Lynn will tell you ... 15 minutes at a time a-la Flylady.
