100 Days of Letting Go and More Pink

You are probably wondering, 100 Days of Letting Go and More Pink? What does that mean?

I have always wanted to begin this project, however, just never got around to actually doing it.

A project that my friend Bonnie S. had done last year and is actually doing it again this year.

Oh yes, I would toss out things here and there, when the mood struck.

But, never sticking to the rules of the game.  Game?  That is what I am going to call it.

The “pink” will come later in the post.

Almost All White Bedding, A Winter Master Bedroom

Hope everyone had a great Holiday weekend.

I did some shopping with my friend Merry while the boys had a tournament this weekend.

The boys play …… we shop!

 With  numerous Pottery Barn gift cards, rewards, and coupons in hand,

I had fun shopping and left the store with the vision of an almost white bed.

I Have A Blue Christmas in the Master Bedroom

Whenever I hear Blue Christmas, it reminds me of that song by Elvis.

You know the one, “I’ll Have A Blue Christmas Without You” …

That being said, I have a blue Christmas in the Master Bedroom this year.

I did not use the Winter Birds bedding this year.

I thought I would do something different and I did.

A Balancing Act With A Chair

A balancing act with a chair?

No, I am not balancing a chair from the tips of my fingers.

I was a bit unsure with the look of my newly refreshed sitting area

in the Master Bedroom.

After much contemplation, I realized this is what it needed

after I took the side tables away and added the plant stands.

Master Bedroom Sitting Area Refresh

While at the grocery store the other day,

I always make sure I visit the floral department to see what goodies they had for me.

The roses were on clearance. So a beautiful bunch of creamy white roses landed in my cart.

The Master Bedroom for Summer

On the way home from a tournament in Tennessee,

my hubby obliged me with a bit of a detour to  stop in Lake Lure, NC

for lunch . . . and a stop at the Pottery Barn Outlet in South Carolina.

What more can you ask for than a beautiful lunch by the water’s edge of Lake Lure

and a stop at a Pottery Barn outlet to finish off the weekend.

Master Bedroom of Blue and White

Today, I am joining some of my very favorite blogger friends

presenting some wonderful inspiration and love for the color blue.

Blue, a color that is pretty much a constant throughout my home.

In keeping with my efforts to transform my home from the Winter decor to

Spring, it was time to change out the bedding in the Master Bedroom to a lighter feel.

I looked in one of  the linen closets where I store my bedding

and the blue and white duvet seemed to be the perfect transition from Winter to Spring.
