gathering inspiration


It has been such a lazy week for me so far, what about you?  I know I should be moving full steam ahead with the last couple of projects on my revamp list but my energy level has really been zapped.

I did manage to gather together the last of the misplaced odds and ends that didn't find a place in the kitchen or dining room revamps.  Those things that I wasn't ready to part with knowing I would find a place for them sooner or later.

It's amazing what a pretty mix of color and pattern they make just grouped together like this.  They have become my inspiration palette for the living room spruce up.

I bought a few cans of spray paint to freshen up some frames and will be purchasing three new shades for the windows this weekend so I am making a little progress.  I also painted a desk I found for $4.00 at Goodwill.

Today I'm off to Hobby Lobby again with my sister in law in search of a knob for the thrift store desk and a yard of fabric for a new bathroom curtain, then it's off to lunch at Islands.  Wish me luck that I only walk out of there with what I went in for.

Happy Wednesday!

xo, Patty


  1. Ha, good luck! I know you'll have fun looking. I love your colorful style Patty, it's so happy and warm!

  2. That is just a darling combination! I LOVE that polka-dot teapot. I wouldn't be able to part with those cute things either, Patty. xo Diana

  3. I do wish you luck, Patty. It's so frustrating to have something set in your mind and not be able to find it!
    Have a fun day-Kimberly

  4. I found what I was looking for and only one thing more. Not bad for

  5. This weather has me feeling very lazy too. I have no energy in this heat!! It is supposed to break tomorrow thankfully!
    Wow, I can't wait to see the desk you got!

  6. Patty,
    Love the cheerfulness of your color palette, dear friend!!!
    Like you, I, too, am often "in search" of unique drawer knobs and pulls!!!
    Will power, dear one, will power!!!
    I know, it doesn't work for me, either!

  7. I think I found the perfect knob but I won't know until I put it altogether. I'm not one hundred percent sold on the fabric for the curtains so they are in limbo.

  8. hmm.. Nice... I love the teapot... "I'm a little teapot, short and stout... ".. :)

  9. Your dishes are so lovely! Very cheerful.
    I see you found what you were looking for-- have fun playing around with all your projects.
    Polka dots are for smiling. :)
