It’s that time of year again.

The time between all of the holiday celebrations and travel and busyness and….Spring.

All of the holiday decorations have been returned to their boxes and stored away for another year. There are blank spots where festive décor hung. The mantel is blank and the furniture needs to be shifted around to replace the spot where the Christmas tree stood.

Honestly, it’s a little lotta depressing.

From someone who suffers from depression, this is a tough time of year.

Besides taking medication I have taught myself some other tricks to battle my blues.

One of those tricks is to visit my parents in Texas. Not only does the simple fact of visiting my parents help but getting a couple of days of sunshine and temperatures above zero skyrockets the Vitamin D levels.

Another way I fight my depression is to redecorate parts of the house and add a new décor item here and there.

This is the time of year when we are constantly wrapped in throw blankets. In fact I am currently sitting under an electric throw blanket which I have set on high to ward off the bone chilling temperatures.

Those blankets can’t find a nice place to land accept all over the floor. Drives me crazy.

So the other day when I was sewing, it struck me that one of these two ladders would be a perfect place for those blankets.

I hauled the ladder down those 17 stairs, shifted the lamp and chair over, grabbed the blankets off of the floor and settled them onto their new home.


Now lets chat about that big brown leather elephant in the room.

That’s the one.

We use to have the matching loveseat and couch, but they were too big for this room. There were replaced by two love seats that now frame the room.

My husband is a long and lean 6’4″. I get that he needs a big chair. But my styles are clashing.

Raise your hand if you think that this chair featured in Karianne’s, (ThistlewoodFarms) home wouldn’t look perfect in that spot.

Plus the chair reclines so he can still relax and watch TV from that very spot.

I will tell him that all of my friends have raised their hands in agreement with me that he NEEDS a new recliner. 🙂

I am going to go to Drake this weekend to spend some girl time with Sam. We have a list of things to accomplish, most of which are visiting some shops she thinks I will love. Spending time with her always lifts the spirits too!

Stop by tomorrow if you get a chance.

Have a great weekend,
