Bringing in a Little Bit of Green


Hello everyone! Snowed last night and the night before but you know what I noticed? By noon it’s all gone! Yay!!! I’ve seen robin’s all about so I know SPRING is so, so near! That’s why I’ve started bringing in the green!
While in North Carolina I visited Target in Winston Salem, of course I loved it, went back again matter a fact! On this trip I found this rug on clearance for $14.98. I’ve been looking for one in the apple green color, that’s what I call this color. I think it looks so springy don’t you?

Also picked up this hand soap for the kitchen sink, it’s by Method and the design is from Orla Kiely…tomato vine, a very clean, fresh scent!

I found the owl tea light at Goodwill a while ago and he brings just the right amount of green to the counter top!

Yesterday I went shopping with my daughter, we stopped in TJMaxx and look what I found…rolls of Baker’s Twine in every color of the rainbow. All for $ 9.99, two rolls for each color…jackpot!!! Because I’ve really wanted some for a while! I found them right where you check out, you know where they put things as your waiting to be next in line?

What are you doing on this Monday afternoon? I’m cleaning because I watched my son’s 3 dog’s this weekend…can you say a handful? All very good dogs but the dog hair is something I would not want everyday:) Buster is enough!

Your green touches here & there are just the thing to welcome Spring! It sounds like you're getting closer to it than we are. I'm sick of Winter!

Just the perfect amount of green. I'm sure you had lots of fur around with 4 big dogs in the house!

Boy you are a great mother. We get crazy when our son comes with his one dog. LOL! I love the splash of green you added. The patterns on both are very attractive!

Hi Rondell! Oh, I think you've found some great things. Green is fast becoming my favorite color. It's in almost every room of my house. Thanks so much for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,

Your son is a lucky man to have you watch his three dogs. I love animals too, but the fur can be a lot to keep up with. Your twine was a fabulous find. I wonder if my TJ Maxx has some. I need to check it out.

Jennifer said...

I have that same rug from target! :)

I love your decorating style...all the whites and greens. And your sofa is adorable! Good pick!

Thanks for visiting my blog today and I am following you back.
