IT'S A COLORFUL LIFE- SPRING HOME TOUR 2020: PART 2


Welcome back for part 2 of my Spring Home Tour!  Last week I shared my Living Room and Porch with you and was so pleased that many of you replied that it was a little bright spot in your day.  We've been getting some glorious Spring teaser weather days, but this is another chilly, gloomy, rainy week so I'm happy that things are cheery on the inside of our home at least!

Today let's start with the Entry.  It's a small little space that is open to the Dining Room and the rest of our main living area, and honestly not much has changed here in years!  Sometimes I swap out the rug and lamps and the styling on the dresser changes, but the dresser and mirror- both second hand and painted for a makeover- have stayed put for a long time.

IT'S A COLORFUL LIFE- SPRING HOME TOUR 2020 WRAP UP


What a fun few days sharing the It's a Colorful Life Spring Tours!  From the feedback I received everyone seemed to enjoy a colorful little respite for a few minutes while viewing the variety of tours for the past few days.  Today I'm doing a wrap up with a little glimpse of each tour in case there are some you need to catch up on.  I know you'll find something in each one that sparks your imagination and creativity, I sure did!

CABBAGE WARE BRIGHT AND CHEERY EASTER TABLE



I have no idea what Easter is going to look like this year, I expect quite different than what we're used to.  I do know three things though... on April 12 we'll still be celebrating Jesus' resurrection, He'll still be alive and in control of all things, and we'll still be having a holiday meal together!  Today I'm sharing my bright and cheery Easter table, and although I've had plans with a group of friends for weeks to do a cabbage ware Easter table hop, we discussed whether or not we should still post in light of the seriousness of our current world situation.  We ultimately decided to proceed in hopes that we will bring a bright spot of joy and beauty to your day in the midst of so much uncertainty, fear, and unease.  That will be my plan going forward, as well.  I'll continue to post projects and ideas to hopefully bring you inspiration (since we all have plenty of time at home to finally tackle some of those DIY wish lists, right?) and encouragement through these difficult days.  Please know that in doing so I'm not discounting or dismissing the seriousness of the situation going on around us at all, merely trying to continue some sense of normalcy in the midst of it and maybe offer a few minutes of distraction.  OK, now that I've shared my heart with you about that... let's move on to pretty things!

SPRING MASTER BEDROOM REFRESH


Did you know that today is National Sleep Day?  I'd venture to say we all could use a good night's sleep after the week we've had, right?  There's nothing like climbing into a crisp, comfy bed at the end of the day.   Yesterday I spent a bit of time freshening up our Master Bedroom for Spring, and even with all of the uncertainty going on in the world right now it's nice to have a cozy little refuge here!

I don't know about you, but Spring brings the itch for change for me! So this year, that change came in the form of a new look for our Breakfast Nook.

Without a doubt, our DIY shower curtain and cornice board is the perfect finishing touch of the kids' new bathroom.  It wasn't too difficult to make and adds such a style element and warmth to the room.  Today I'll share the tutorial with you of how we made it!

10 WAYS TO USE A CORDIAL GLASS


Last week was big, thank you so much for all of the love on my son's room refresh and the kids' bathroom makeover reveal!  It's fun to share the big things like that, but today let's talk about pretty little things!  You all have seen several of the things that I collect- blue and white, busts, lamps, pillows- ha!  I now have something new to add to the list that I'm always keeping an eye out for... blue Opaline glasses.  I recently scored a set of 10 cordial glasses, they're the teeniest tiniest cutest little things!  They're about the size of a shot glass and while we don't drink alcohol, I came up with 10 other ways to use a cordial glass.  These don't just apply to my specific cordial glasses, what tiny little pretty containers do you have around your house that would work for some of these ideas?
