Bright Spring Color.

For some reason, I can't get the blogging thing squared away lately! I suppose it's because I don't have much to share since we have slowed down on projects around the house. Things have been busy at work with report cards and parent-teacher interviews. Plus, I've been trying to do a few extra Crossfit classes and Steph has also joined. Seems blogging has taken a back seat.

I have many projects brewing in my mind though so I hope to get moving again soon.. That is, after we get back from our trip! We are heading to Mexico on Saturday for a week of sun and relaxation. I. can. not. wait.

I plan on that being me but I think Steph plans on us being a little more active than that. On another note, I want a retro mint bathing suit! How cute is she?

I've noticed in packing my suitcase that I am attracted to bright colors this spring. Maybe it's dreaming of  sunny skies but lately, the brighter the better. It's easy when it comes to clothing but much riskier when it comes to making it work in your home. Well... not for everyone but definitely for me!

Here is how I'm going to make the attempt this spring.

Lots of fresh flowers. Tulips are my easy favorite right now.

Replace some of my pillow covers with some in fresh spring colors. 
I particularly like these ones from Caitlin Wilson Textiles.

I can't completely commit to color year round. I find it can get tiring after a while. Using flowers and pillows are simple and affordable ways to add pop to a neutral base. How are your bringing fresh spring colors into your home this year?


  1. It is hard to blog and teach isn't it? I just finished report cards a week ago too. So glad that is done. LUcky for me we don't do interviews during report cards but during interims instead! Have a wonderful time in Mexico! Enjoy the sun, sand and surf! And don't feel guilty about blogging, we are always here!

  2. Have fun on your vacation! And Barbara is right, don't sweat it. Enjoy the time away :-)

  3. Hi Jane! I tried to comment from my phone last night but don't think it went through. Just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. I'm new to your blog and LOVE it! I spent way too long reading over your posts last night. I'm a fellow Canadian and blogger and am now your newest follower.

    Come by and visit me any time. I'll be back here soon!

    Anyway, happy to have found this lovely blog. Hope you are well and enjoy your time off!
