Time to Hibernate

At Miles' playgroup today, everyone was yawning. I KNOW I'm tired. I have other reasons to be tired, but I really think this weather isn't helping. Not just the cold, but some of these very gray and dreary days... not so good for my soul.

It is time to put the kids down for nap/rest. I am ready to nap too. But first...

Received some nice mail this week... My order for the classroom Valentine tag cards for Ella, a formal Thank-you from my holiday swap partner, an invite to a baby shower and something else that escapes me. One of the biggest bummers for me after December is the lack of fun and exciting mail, so all of these little pieces mean a ton to me!

Now that we have a better idea of colors for the 1st floor, the wheels are turning in my decorating brain (look closely, it's there just a little small). I found some botanical prints from Ballard Designs in black and white that I think would look sharp on a reddish wall, on either side of our dining room breakfront. I finally came to terms with the fact that our current mass produced art print looks out of place and unbalanced on one side of the breakfront. I think it will make a move to the hall to take over for the minuscule Kohls store print that vaguely looks like a replicate of a Thomas Kinkade.

I really like the Damask borders.

I also think it will be nice to have a similar pair to create some order and symmetry in the room. Any opinions?

Gorgeous artwork. I love them! Can't wait to see pictures of your finished walls.

I received my Valentine from you today and absolutely love it! You did beautiful work on the applique'. It's already hanging in my dining room window and I will try to get a post with it in sometime this weekend. (I'm painting my bedroom so hopefully will be able to squeeze some computer time in!)
Thanks so much!!
