Happy New Year!!(finally)

Happy New Year to all of my sweet blogging friends! I am so sorry that it took me so long , we have been out of town Ahhhh, doesn't it feel so refreshing to take down the Christmas decor! I feel like it should be Spring now, LOL. No I will not decorate for that yet, but I moved my china cabinet to the other wall in my dining rm and moved my buffet cabinet to my living rm, I won't show that pic yet because I will be making some changes in the living rm, but I haven't done it yet (; I sold my pink chairs and will be buying something else to replace them?? I sure have missed everyone and can't wait to get back on my normal schedule tomarrow, my kids take over my comp when their home); Well, I'm off to finish my projects and visit all of you!!
Hugs~Kelly
UPDATE: I don't want anyone out there having a heartattack about my pink chairs, LOL, I plan on buying new furniture from Ikea and they have pink slipcovers! I figured at least I would be able to change the pink covers out when I wanted a different look(; so don't be to alarmed , I have a plan!! You guys are so funny, you don't really think that I would do away with my pink now do ya ??!! Hugs~Kelly

Happy new Year to you and yours! Sounds like you've been busy. I got my decor down on Christmas day and the day after!
I've got my valentine's stuff slowly going up now.
Can't wait to see what you do in the livingroom and what you choose to replace your pink chairs.

Love the changes though it always looked so pretty. Everytime I go to your blog your sunny kitchen makes me smile-

I think you should have auctioned your pink chairs on your blog- you probably would have made a ton!

YOur cottage is just so cute, I don't know why you would want to change anything. But those pink slipcovered chairs at IKEA are great. I have the Ektorp sofa's with the white slipcovers. The only problem I've had with them is that the zippers are real cheap! The first time I took the slipcovers off to wash some of the zippers broke(and I am very gentle and careful) I also have had a hard time getting them clean, even with bleach the dirt doesn't come out. But I still love them. They're very comfy.

HI Kelly!

Ohhhhhh SOOOO fresh looking, I love it! and I have no issues with you doing spring :)! In fact I'm dying to see "the light" :) I am tired of winter already and it's only January! lol

I think I know those chairs from IKEA, they have such great deals and the best part is the slipcovers! I cannot wait to see them!

Lee Laurie said...

Happy New Year to you too! I feel like it should be Spring too. I am still taking down my Christmas decorations. I've just been so busy at work. I'm always so tired when I get home. I always feel like it should be Spring when I get my Christmas packed up. But wait...we still have Valentine's Day to decorate for! Pink and red here we come! I can't believe that you sold your pink chairs! I loved them! I know what ever you put in their place will be beautful. I love your home. It is so pretty. Come look at my blog and see how I plan on painting my kitchen cabinets and let me know what you think.
Hugs,

Hi Kelly,
I just did a zoom in on your room. I love what you did to the top of your hutch. That is always my problem. Yours looks beautiful inside and out. So I am going to be calling on you to help me with my dining room hutch. I just can't seem to get it right.
Hugs
