Yes, this is what I feel like doing...Lying down!...ha!...I have been tearing down my house today and putting it all on my dining room table....Yes, I am! I've been wanting to change things for some time now and the best way I know how to at this point is to look at it with a fresh pair of eyes....So, at this point it looks like I'm either moving or just moving in...BARE! Peg racks are bare...The hallway is empty ( except for a lighted lantern I use for night time lighting)...I took everything off an entire wall in my bedroom...Samplers taken down in the bathrooms...I will be moving into the gathering room at some point, but not ready to sit and look at bare walls in the evenings...So, for now I'm holding off in there and the kitchen except for a few things here and there...I'm hitting my magazine pages i save in a folder for inspiration and from now through the summer (probably Fall, winter..ha!) I'm working on changing things....Adding new things, rearranging the old, stenciling ( I've been wanting to do), making some new wood pieces, and making it look like a samplermaker lives here...Do you want to follow along on this journey with me...lol

Until next time!!~~hugs, Jen

Good luck! I just got rid of all of the "winter stuff", and moved in some new spring goodies. It is so much work to "decorate" every little space. Fun, but a lot of work and you need to have inspiration!! I just posted some new pics on my blog. I will check back with you. Blessings !Sara

I am happy to follow along on your redecorating journey, Jen!! We'll be moving soon, and my plan is to replace most of the prints we have hanging up with samplers and stitcheries.... and a hooked rug here and there! I will be looking to you for inspiration!!

You know what's funny, we get fed up of our decor, when other people adore it LOL. Your decor is EXACLY my taste, and I have always loved it ALL. But, I am sure your new decorating will be FAB! By the way, my birthday is in July, and I know what I want for my birthday. I want a Cloverdale Road. I will contact You in May, and make the inquiries. Every year, I purchase 2 special things, once at my birthday, and once at Christmas, and I would like nothing better than a Cloverdale road!!!
