Happy March, my dear friends! Spring is almost upon us, and that makes my heart sing. I hope that you are well and enjoying these last few days of winter. It has been a very trying winter for many in our country, and my heart goes out to all of those affected by the terrible winter storms.
We experienced temperatures we haven’t seen in decades. It actually got down to a negative 14 degrees at my house, and unfortunately we had some pipes freeze. In addition to freezing pipes, Mr.Bleu slipped on the ice, hurt his shoulder, and had a slight concussion. A few days later, I became ill with an infection that seemed to take forever to get over. Fortunately, we are both on the mend and brighter days are ahead.
Before the winter storms, my sweet hubby repainted the front sitting room. I had wanted to share this change with you sooner, but with all that has been going on I was unable to get a blog post together. The previous owners had painted the room a pretty yellow, but I needed a change. Also, the room really needed a fresh coat of paint.
The paint color I chose was my favorite Benjamin Moore color Palladian Blue. It just looks so pretty and makes everything seem so much brighter.
This painting is a new addition to the room. I am so proud of it and have been anxious to show it to you. As many of you know, I lost my dear poodle, Rusty, in early November. I was blessed to have him as a part of my life for 17 years. On Christmas morning, as I walked into the living room, this beautiful painting was sitting by the Christmas tree. My dear sweet daughter, Caroline, painted it for me as a Christmas gift. I’m sure you can imagine the tears that fell from my eyes. It was such a precious gift, created by someone with so much love in her heart, capturing the essence of our loving pet who was so dear to all of us. It is a true treasure, and when I look at this painting I am reminded of so much love.
My vignettes are always a collection of things that I love, have inherited, or collected over time.
Sweet friends, I hope that you have enjoyed your visit. It is my wish that you have a most blessed day and happy week ahead. This week, I’m planning on getting my bunnies out and starting my spring decorating. I’m so anxious for the new season. Take care!
