Sprinkles of Changes

The past few months, I have been working on some updates, changes, additions to our Double-Wide in the Sky {our home}.

Some things I have been working towards since we moved in... like the drapery. But, for big purchases like these, you need to save money.... take your time in the fabric choices..... and get plenty of quotes. But, it was definitely worth the 1.5 year wait!

Some things have morphed from other projects around the house.

I must say.... I am at a peaceful and content place.

Especially, when I sit down with my cup of coffee for my Quiet Time.... 


If you live in the Dallas Fort Worth location, Trinity Uptown Windows is AWESOME when it comes to fabric selection, consultation, install and final product! {And I have been offered NO incentives for singing their praises.}

I am a very specific person. I know what I want.... after all, I have had an idea in mind for 1.5 years with our home.... I knew what I wanted with our drapery. That could make for an extremely aggravating experience.

But, the Design Specialist who held my hand through the entire process was simply AMAZING!
She completely "got me" and led the way to sweet success!

The sheers in the Living/Dining/Kitchen space add so much warmth, but yet, provide the needed shelter for the bright morning sun's rays.

And I could go on.... and on.... about the BLACKOUT drapery in our Master Bedroom.


And.... all with a black and white greek key trim ---- LOVE!

I have not slept this good in a LONG time!
You would be surprised at how much city lights can interrupt a girl's beauty sleep --- hah!

These puppies do the trick {and the fabulous newly gold spray painted Foo Dogs would agree}!

That wall of fabric....... makes my heart swoon!

I also got pretty busy when I decided to finish out my office with wallpaper on all walls.
Previously, there were only 2 focal walls covered. But, I completed the entire room in just 2 nights.

2 nights where the hubby was working late....
2 nights with the kiddo asleep....
2 nights of some frustration in applying this Tempaper completely by myself....

But, HAPPINESS and WORTH IT when sitting in my completely wallpapered office!

I LOVE it!

And, last but definitely not least....
I changed out the objects flanking our TV in the Living Room.

I needed something brighter to balance out the newly added sheers.

I went with a linear cluster of these from ZGallerie.

There you have it.... a few sprinkles of changes.

More like, sprinkles of activity!

I have also completed some more artwork....

Springtime makes me so active and creative..... How about you?
