is it just spring fever?

surprise! a blog post from me today!
i must be in some kind of a winter funk lately.
have not been doing much, except cleaning house often
because the puppy comes in all muddy
 from this rainy weather we've been having.

i have also been feeling the need for some color in my world.

but not too much, because i really do still just love a neutral home.
i feel this way every spring.
so i don't want to redo major things with color,
but maybe a pillow .... or...

maybe this lovely quilt that i picked up when living overseas.
i like it on the sofa...kind of a bohemian chic look, but not
sure i can live with it. 
but i also know that a sofa like this:

isn't in my budget.  i would love this in an ever so pale grey blue.
or how about this one:
or this one:

so i keep checking CL in hopes of one day finding one.
i currently have ikea slip covered sofas. 
they are great with two boys, a husband and a black lab puppy.
when they get dirty, i just chuck them in the laundry.
not sure my family is ready for an uber cool french sofa like the ones pictured....but maybe.

so in the meantime i've decided to repaint my dining room...yes again.  yes the room that which has the seal skin paint (and now chalk drawings all over it).  love the seal skin color, but really for the fall and winter.  so i've got my choice narrowed down to BM cloud cover.  a white, but with a hint of grey.
and to also bring in some color, i have a drawer on my wall with the ever faintest turquoise blue paint on it.  i'll see if i can't match it at the paint store and just might have to repaint my armoire cabinet in the living room with it.  i'm not scared of paint, but i guess it's just color that i'm afraid of.  AND if i paint the cabinet and don't like it, i hate to paint it again. 
eek, i'm rambling.

we entertained this past weekend with some friends. 
had a great time.

dinner was amazing, the company even better.

also have been busy with the burlap junktion booth.
a wedding theme this month.  come check us out if you're in the KC area.

that's all for now.  thanks for checking in!
