The Sun is Finally Out ...

Happy Monday!

I hope your weekend was wonderful!  After 15 days of rain, we finally welcomed the sun, and I couldn't be happier!  Sooo, I thought I'd just share a few snaps around the house with the sun shining!

I'm trying a new arrangement here in the great room and recently added a few blue and white pieces:

Our sunroom gets lots of sun in the morning ... blue skies in the background are a welcomed sight, for sure!  I have plans for this space once I either 1) master the tutorials I've watched and talk my husband into us "going for it!" orrrr 2) we hire someone to make my vision come to life!  We shall see ...

Our foyer doesn't have a "gray skies" overcast anymore, thank goodness!  I've played around with the vignette, adding a cute ceramic pineapple ... here to greet and "welcome" guests.

Nothing says Spring and sun like fake lavender, right?  If only I had a green thumb!

Our dining room also enjoys lots of morning sunshine ... I think if this room could smile this morning it would!  I've also recently added blue and white in here, as well.  There is just something so crisp about that color combo ... so *Spring-y* and refreshing!

While you're here, I "have" to share the beautiful gift from my husband that we got on Mother's Day ... this comfy Ektorp loveseat that we added here in our sitting room.  He sure knows the way to my "decorating heart!"  When we were having our days of rain this past week, I added this "happy" yellow pillow to help remind us of the sun!

I will say, though, that while we missed the sun tremendously, our grass and birds were thrilled to have it around for so long!  Now, I can finally plant some flowers and pay attention to the outside just a bit!

I hope it's beautiful where you are today!  

Thanks for stopping by!

The blue and white is crisp and bright Becca. Luv it.
We have had a relatively dry April and May so far... tomorrow however, there is a chance of rain and I am looking forward to it.
Happy new week!!
Hugs, Gee

The sun certainly can lift spirits. Wow 15 days of gloom is not good. Love the sun filled shots.

The arrangement in the great room looks phenomenal. The amount of natural light you get in that room makes me jealous. Our house is very dark as there are not many windows. The white furniture and curtains really make it look amazing. My husband and I should really look into perhaps adding more windows to our house in the future.
