The desire that usually hits around this time of the year, has hit. It took longer than expected and I thought, at first, that it wasn’t going to happen at all. But it has. What desire am I talking about? Decorating. Without fail, around the middle to end of January, I begin to feel the scaffolding need to decorate and tidy up. It starts out innocent enough. A reorganization here, a rearrange over there, and before you know it, I’m thinking about getting a new…well, something. It’s the time of the year that I cherish the most, as I love giving a little fresh coat of love to my house.
I am in love with baskets like this one from Pier 1 to hold books, magazines, or even extra throws.
And of course, with the month of February, love is everywhere….as it should be! Telling, or better yet, showing someone you care (whoever that person is in your life) should be a regular occurrence this month…and every month after. 🙂
The end of January and most of February consists of quite a few plans both in the sewing and personal world. I have been very busy mocking, drafting, and designing in my sewing studio, occasionally coming up for air. It has been glorious! Yet, it is that time to have my sewing machine cleaned…which will take about two weeks. Cue frightened scream!! It will be a very difficult period of withdrawal! 🙂 However, I will be visiting my family in Florida for a bit of that time which will definitely help!
Woo hoo for sunshine!!
