Prelude to Spring Cleaning

While the boys busied themselves creating tempera paint masterpieces with their Young Artist’s Toolbox this afternoon, I took a few moments to photograph some new household accessories I’ve recently acquired.  I’ve been on a rearranging/redecorating kick lately which I totally blame on the new television and bar that we received at Christmas.  We’re waiting on our new television console to arrive so everything is pretty disorganized in our living room.  It’s given me the opportunity to throw out some old stuff, re-purpose some other things and add a few new treasures to our decor.  My inspiration has, of course, extended beyond just the living room…

I found these darling bud vases in the Dollar Spot at Target.  They were not a dollar, however.  They were $2.50 🙂  I picked up a half dozen of those gorgeous roses at Publix last night to fill the vases.  The color of the flowers is “circus”.  I just love how they look so happy.  Their riotous color brightened the gray, dreary weather we had today.

I found this cute throw pillow at Target as well.  Our beautiful brown club chair was looking a bit empty with the Christmas pillows put away.  Not anymore!

I added this pretty turquoise vase to the kids’ bathroom vanity.

At the opposite end of the vanity, I added a cute bird cage.  I put a towel in it because it looked a little weird empty.

I replaced the sad, dusty flower arrangement on our DVD cabinet with these new accessories.  I like how light and beachy they look.  I’m not sure I’ll keep them there because I actually bought them with the new television console in mind.  We’ll see if I change my mind when it arrives tomorrow.

I’ve got a list of other things I want to buy for the house but must remember to pace myself!  I’ll share photos as I add new things but right now, I’m off to clean up the paint mess that the boys left me on the porch bar…  Yikes!  I’m afraid to look!
