If I drank Chardonnay at lunch, my house would be prettier.

It must be February.  Today I have been wandering around my house trying to figure out how to make it look entirely different.  I want to totally change it up, go with different color schemes, buy all new furniture, make it bigger and totally eliminate any sign of children.  If I have to try to figure out how to incorporate Ninja Turtles, Playstation remotes and the random blue or green nail polish bottles and hair bands into my decor for much longer I am going to lose it.

We still have quite a bit of snow.  Spring isn't springing here.  I have a ways to go before I can get out of my Winter funk and move onto my Spring mania.  You know the time where I start planning the garage sale I swore I would never have again!  So I went out looking for some inspiration.  Here's what I found that is turning me on and sure to make Mr. Handsome roll his eyes and walk away.

Note the absence of any Ninja Turtles.

I particularly like the fact there are not puppy-sized fur balls collecting in the corners.

It's just so clean!  And fresh.

Notice there is no T.V. in this room, therefore no Playstation remotes. 
I absolutely LOVE those red chairs, that no doubt the owner found while searching the local
antique store after she had finished a lovely lunch with her girlfriends where they drank Chardonnay
and talked about the vacations they have planned for this summer.  I hate that bitch.

Oh and look at this charming table she found.  Love how there isn't a day-old (still full of yesterday's garbage) lunch box, a pair of dirty socks, 2 winter hats, the mail, 2 dog leashes, a cupcake wrapper and the car keys covering it.  

I might just start moving furniture around.  It would make me feel better.  I might even unearth Donatello.  He's been missing for weeks, he's probably hiding because he hates February too.


  1. Donnie is my LEAST favorite... let him lie. I chased my kid around saying 'i'm raph' this morning. we rock. we
    mud here. signs of things to come... (freezing rain too but thats neither here nor there)

  2. AND, by the way, i could look at that house ALL day. ALL.

  3. We need spring! I should be done with my painting soon, then I'll have some extra time. I don't drink wine, but maybe we could get together for lunch somewhere? What do ya think? I'm thinking Florida, but with kids and all that would be hard! Lol maybe we could meet somewhere in between your town and mine?

  4. I hate that bitch too. And I want those aqua wicker chairs in my sunroom! This post almost made me squirt my latte out my nose. Which would have hurt. Cause it's screaming hot.
