~~**Spring Fusion, The Beginning**~~

Hey everyone, I'm finally back after my surgery last week. I had originally planned to be back sooner, but my recovery was a little more difficult than I thought it would be, in fact I'm still recovering! But I have been anxious to re-do my room, especially since my hubby brought my new beauties home last week. This is just a small preview of what's happening in my room. Hopefully he can get my beauties hung up tomorrow.

It's all about infusing Spring into the house. Most of my home is done in muted grays, whites and pale gray-blues, but I thought I would add just a touch of color to the bedroom to spruce it up a bit.

 I've had this vintage lilac towel for years, the colors are so bright and vivid, it's just beautiful! I'm thinking about having it made into a pillow.

 On another note...
I'm so excited, I did something today that I've been wanting to do for months now. I finally took my jewelry over to Beth Livesay, the editor for Jewelry Affaire magazine to be considered for their next issue. She is one of the sweetest people, so down to earth and super friendly and helpful.
Thank you so much Beth, it was such a pleasure to finally meet you!
Stay tuned for the bedroom re-do.
Have a great night.
