It's been a busy week.....

I've been able to accomplish so much this week.  It's been too cold to want to get out so I've stuck pretty close to home.  Except for yesterday when Judy and I ran to the shop and picked up my new chest for the hallway.  I love it.  What do you think?
Putting this piece in and taking out the hutch that had ironstone in it took some of the busy-ness (is that a word) out of the hallway.  This is how the hutch looked.  By the way, I'm going to be selling this piece at Leola's.
I moved things around in the living room, too.  Once I get started moving things, there's no stopping me.  I've had this cabinet on the wall for years and I'm thinkin' this will go to Leola's too.  It will have to come down because it wasn't removed before we painted it the last time so before the house goes on the market, I'll have to get it down.
My paperwhites are still blooming so cut these few to put in an ironstone pitcher.

Here's the new bedroom hallway color.  It really warmed it up and looks so good with the wood floors.  I love reading Miss Mustard Seed and in her blog a few days ago she talked about her True Value store and how she loves it and their paint.  Well, I feel the same about mine.  They're so nice and helpful and it's right up the street.  I've lately used Behr paint but decided to try True Value's paint and I loved it.  They keep everything on file so if I forget what I've used before, they can find it for me.  I love my True Value Store.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.  It's warmed up considerable today so the snow is melting.  Stay warm!!!

Hey Jan, your new piece in the entry looks perfect. Love the lamp and mirror. Just what you needed there!

Such a simple, beautiful new entry! Love it! I need your help with learning how to force those paperwhites. Or can I just buy some at Leola's, ready to go???

Love all your colors, what great pieces you've collected over the years...are you excited about moving. I've always loved changes like this, as you can tell by how many times I've moved the shop...heehee!

It's so cold up here and the ice from yesterday's rain and slush, is now frozen solid, can't get the gait to my shop open, frozen in two inches of ice...IS IT SPRING YET!!!

Stay warm sista!
