Spring inspired paint colors for PPG Voice of Color

Ahh, Spring is finally in the air! I’m ready to spring clean, and freshen my spaces. Recently I’ve been drooling over pretty pastels while I’m in Easter mode. I hauled out my paint decks in search of the perfect Spring Paint Colors. If the colors don’t have your spring loving heart singing the names sure will! I used to think that […]

Sweet dollar store bunnies

I love everything about Spring, the chirping chicks, the sweet breath of new life, and all the bright colors Easter brings. My Easter decor is always mixed.

There are oodles of sweet hair do ideas out there for your little one. But lets be honest, as cute as your girl is with a giant bow made of hair, or a slouchy fishtail braid, school days (unless you’re super-duper mom) don’t lend for hair masterpieces, and most importantly those fancy up-dos just don’t stay in! I […]
