spurt blogger...

apparently that is what i am, lol
i blog in spurts...
i am not good with random...i really suck with how's the weather convo's :)
but it's been awhile and i was feeling like a post was in order today...
but what to post about??
the itch for summer??
as we waffle between warm-ish spring days with artic winds?
blah...ya'll know that!! it's alberta...it's canada...
it is what it is...
how about some random photo's??
it seems fitting for a random post, lol...

we have really been trying to wrap things up reno-wise around here...
it's been even slower since jay went to lloyd...ugh!!!
so instead i got bit by the spring cleaning bug...
i purged and reorganized haillee's room...
snap shot of her collection wall in her dressing area....

as i purged and cleaned the main floor...i decided paint was in order for the living room...this is a testament to how much i dislike washing walls!!! i would rather paint a room then wash the walls :D



yeah it's green...2 shades of green in fact...the wall my couch sits on is a darker green...i really love the colours...but i am still unsure of the colours in my living room...it's a lot of colour for me...i am a tone on tone light and bright kinda girl...i like colours a shade or 2 off white...but i was aching for spring so was really drawn to the fresh spring greens...and it at least flows and coordinates better with my kitchen...our previous living room colour really clashed!! but i may paint over it yet with a more subtle green...a barely there kinda green :)



and the vintage hand cranked singer sewing machine my husband found and brought home. he gave it some TLC and now it is in perfect working order!!!

and further testament of my strong hatred to washing walls...our basement...the forgotten space that i forced my children to play in...ugly...white...half dry walled...no furniture, the floor is good enough for kids, right?? i hated the space...but we aren't ready for renovating it yet...so it is what it is....or is it??
left over paint comes in handy...and childrens art work and an extra bed ;) it's definitely just a temp space...but it's nicer then it was before and it's "homey" enough that the kids enjoy spending time down there now...so yay...mission accomplished!!





there are more spaces to show...but if i showed them all today what would i have for my next post to talk about?? so you get to wait on the kitchen, bathroom , and master bdrm photos :)
and since the majority of my spaces have been repainted...the walls are freshly "cleaned" woohoo!!!

have a fabulous wednesday!!
