March 2019 - Dimples and Tangles


Happy Friday!  It's been a while since I've shared some recent favorite products or purchases, so I have several to tell you about today.  Have a great weekend, I'm working up to cleaning out and having a garage sale (read my tips here!) so I hope to start making a dent in cabinets and closets.  Fun times!  Not really, but I'm anxious to get rid of some stuff and Spring Clean.  Do you have big exciting weekend plans?  (*This post may contain affiliate links, read my full disclosure policy here.)

I've loved the pink rug in my Entry so much (I think you all have too!) that I recently bought it in a smaller size for my kitchen.  It comes in a ton of sizes so it's perfect for the space, and has a price tag where I don't have to worry about hurting it.  It hides things well but is easy to wipe off or give a quick vacuum (PS, if you don't have one of these, best money I've spent in a loooong time!!).

I recently upgraded my computer and have been working to get all of my unorganized photos and files in order and transferred over.  This 3 pack of inexpensive metal thumb drives has come in handy for back up photo storage, plus, their finish is just pretty!  One holds family photos and the others are extra storage for blog photos.  I keep them on a ring hook and even attached them to a tassel keychain so they don't get lost in the shuffle.

While we're at it, I love my label maker!  It's super simple to use and comes in so handy for just about everything.  Mine is probably 15 years old at least, so this is the newer model with several more features but still just as easy to use.  I think I might be overdue a new one!

Have you caught wind of the jade face roller hype yet?  I bought one months ago and have been using it in the mornings (when I remember!).  I don't know that my puffy spots and lines are magically gone after I use it, but I do think it makes a little bit of a difference and if nothing else rolling the cool stone feels good under my eyes.  

Through the weekend, don't miss the Kate Spade 30% off site wide friends and family sale!  (code ONEBIGFAMILY)  So much cuteness... click on any photo for product information.

Doesn't it seem like Spring is taking it's sweet time coming this year?  It's still pretty chilly here in Oklahoma but I see peonies sprouting and tulip bulbs coming up so surely it's knocking on the door! I'm so glad you're here for my Spring Home Tour today.  I'm excited to be hosting another "It's A Colorful Life" home tour, this time with my friend Jewel from Jeweled Interiors.  We're thrilled that the  most fun group of bloggers has joined us for the next few days to all share our Spring tours dripping with color!

Honestly, I don't think it takes much to decorate for Spring.  Grab a few bunches of fresh flowers to spread around and maybe switch out a pillow or two, and you're set!  I didn't do much more than that, just rearranged and cleaned things up and made sure there was plenty of happy color sprinkled around.  So, I don't have much to chat about today, I'll let you just scroll and enjoy the tour.

I actually decorated my porch for Spring a few weeks ago (original post and sources here), but here's a refresher if you missed it.  It will be perfect to stay just like this throughout the season.

Come on in to the other side of that door, the Entry!  All of the major pieces here are second hand (most with DIY makeovers of course!)... the mirror, dresser, lamps, and some of the accessories.

If fresh tulips don't say "Spring," nothing does!

Next we'll move on to the Dining Room.  My regular followers might know that I just completed a Dining Room makeover a few weeks ago, you can see that post here for all of the details.  However, you might have noticed above that I pulled out an old faithful again... my navy striped rug... to use in the Entry.  I've enjoyed having it out again after a few years of the pink one that was there (it's not going anywhere... just switching things around for a while!) and think it coordinates better with the new Dining Room.

After the makeover was fininshed,  I didn't waste any time putting together my first tablescape for Spring!

After I do a tablescape we usually use the settings for a meal and then clear it all off, but I've kept the table set for several weeks now, it fits in so well with Spring. We just keep replacing the plates and it's been nice to have some (faux!) flowers that haven't needed to be replaced or cared for!

Turning around from the Entry and Dining Room, let's tour the Living Room-  this bamboo console is another Craigslist find, I lightly refinished it and recovered the stools.

I was digging through my stash recently and came across these coral geometric pillow covers, I forgot I had them!  When Better Homes and Gardens came to shoot my home for Christmas a few years ago, the stylist had these made along with a matching tree skirt.  She left them here with me after the shoot and I haven't used them until now, but they're the perfect color to mix with my Chiang Mai Dragon pillows for Spring and Summer.

Isn't that pagoda lantern the best find?  I started seeing them pop up in several friends' Instagram feeds about a month ago and had to track one down for myself!  The others I saw were the most darling green, but my Homegoods store only had this black one left.  At first I was disappointed that I couldn't find green but I probably have enough green things ;) and the black has grown on me.

I've had this vintage cane tiered side table for several years now, and the size is nice between our two recliners.  However, I recently decided that there was too much brown happening across that side of the room and so the table got a makeover with my favorite green spray paint.  It's a tough spot to photograph, but the color is so much better!

All the Powder Bath needed for Spring was a cute new hand towel!

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Ok, you're in for a huge treat because Jeweled Interiors is next on today's tour lineup!  I couldn't love Jewel's work more, she's such an inspiring DIYer and has a crazy good sense of style.  Can't wait to see her tour today and the others after her!
