Why I’m Probably Nuts & Hello Lovely Early Spring Decor Posts You May Have Missed!

I am immersed in labor-intensive DIY at the moment. (Because why simply ease a few stems ’round a pretty handmade spring wreath for the door when you can buy a neglected forlorn tiny house to fix up for a son to rent?) No guts, no glory? OY! I must be out of my mind. Prayers, please. More about that nutty-lovely project later. For today, Hello Lovely Early Spring Decor Posts You May Have Missed recaps stories to soothe, and keep you inspired! (No rotting wood windows and unlevel flooring ahead!) Take a peek, PIN like mad, visit posts you missed, and revisit a favorite. Quotes are also weaved in which I hope you’ll PIN to support this blog. Thanks so much for spending time here in such uncertain times and encouraging me with your prayers, clicks, positive energy, pinning, and shares. You make all of the labor behind the scenes so very worth it!

    Thank you so much for including the Patina Farm video here. I saw the Living Room video but had missed this one. She is crazy talented! Love your Cinco de Mayo humor too! Happy Taco Tuesday!

      Happy Taco Tuesday to you, Celia. I am loving Brooke’s tours and think it is such a gift that she has some extra time at home to share their creation in this way. Maybe I’ll be able to follow suit, but that would mean doing my hair…:)

    Always love your inspirational quotes but the humorous ones in his post really made me LOL! 😂Funny that you’d post Brooke’s videos today, because I happened to view all three (Kitchen, LR, & master) this morning before I even had a chance to read your post. What I enjoyed so much about them is seeing angles and areas of her home that you can’t normally see from just pictures posted & to hear from her about each room. And that final video with the toilet paper…how do people come up with such??!! But it is pretty amazing…loved how he incorporated the typical dominos falling in the middle of it! Petty intelligent mind to come up with that I’d say…and a lot of patience too I’m sure! Ha!

      Yes! I am so thrilled Brooke is sharing these tours so we can better see the floorplan, scale, and relationships between rooms. Thanks so much for reading, Amy. Hope you are doing well and hanging in there. xox
