It's been an eventful week at our place. The kids are all on the mend and feeling much better. The boys had their final basketball games today, so now we have our weekends back... for a while anyway. Kids are off to Grandmas for the night, as it is Me and Hubs anniversary. Thirteen years!!! We went out to dinner, hit the bookstore, Marshalls and I actually got Hubs to go inside Hobby Lobby. He normally sits in the car. He even pretended to like it!! BONUS!!

I celebrated a birthday. My sweet friend Christen bought me these beautiful tulips. They have temporarily cured my cabin fever. Thank you Christen!!
This is today's Hobby Lobby loot. They had all wall hangings half off. I picked up this little bunny plaque for $5. I think it looks divine in my bathroom. The jars you see I picked up for next to nothing from...I don't remember where. They hold q-tips, soaps, cotton balls and what ever else. I posted about this sweet little girl silhouette a time ago. Well, I found her mate at the Cottage Porch. That's an adorable local shop where I sell my totes and tassels. I could not leave without him. Now they have been happily reunited.

More tulips for your viewing pleasure.

Hubs and stopped at the home improvement store and I picked up a gallon of paint. I have been longing for a change of color in the kitchen. I thought I would try blue, but now that I slapped a bit on the wall....I'm not so sure I can live with it.

So, then I thought maybe an almondy color with blue thrown in on the window treatments. Blahh! I don't like that color at all . Maybe I am just to picky. I will probably loose sleep over this tonight. I am the most indecisive person you will ever meet!

The current color of the kitchen is Garden Shed Green. You can see it in the back ground of the top photo. What's your vote ladies? Blue, almond or leave it green? I have exactly 19 hours to get it done before the little rascals come home! Hope yall are having a fabulous weekend!!

Your finds are wonderful. I love fresh flowers, I have been buying myself some each week to keep on my table to help with the winter blues. I think the color blue is so soothing and clean looking. I vote for blue~Madeline

i am particularly ecstatic about the silhouette frame - they are finally reunited!
for the paint, pick one you can be more comfortable with.

I don't have a vote, because I have no color sense. I think your kitchen looks fabulous, and I think it will look fabulous no matter what color you choose! Anyway, I just wanted to say Happy Birthday & Happy Anniversary! :)

Happy Birthday to you...Happy Anniversary to you and your hubby!

I have to vote for the green paint -- it's very neutral. Leave it green and rearrange your kitchen decor/accessories -- that will give you the change that you are yearning for...a lot less work than painting. My favorite color is green so I may not be the best person to ask about color!

Keep us posted on what you decide to do with your kitchen...

Hugs ~ Donna
