What Are You Craving?

How was your weekend everyone? Mine was very busy but since I slipped in some fun along with my projects the result was refreshing and today I woke up ready and excited to meet you all here and begin a new week together. I’ve been a bit tied up today since my e-course, Blogging Your Way, officially kicked off and I’ve been working on some last minute deets around that but I’m excited to report that the class is up and running and I love my first day as a virtual instructor — especially on a topic I hold near and dear — blogging! I like to have my hands in multiple projects simultaneously, as long as they’re all linked together somehow, so teaching online for the month of April really works for me. Of course, my new role as part-time teacher will not interrupt business as usual on decor8 so I’ll still be hanging out here with you each day! With that said, let’s move on to decorating and pretty things now, shall we?

There is so much out there currently that I want to own but I’ve been exercising TONS of self control or else my home would look like a warehouse of stuff — but it has been very hard to hold back! Truth is, I love all of the Spring fashion (minus the zipper trend that I had hoped expired in ‘85 along with MC Hammer “harem” pants), the great product packaging popping up in the most unexpected places like the white rice bags at Trader Joe’s (with gorgeous birds and a forest scene, have you spotted those — eek! cute!), and of course all of the home stores are bursting with beautiful colors and patterns.

What are you seeing currently that has you swooning? What about color combinations? Any that make your heart beat a little faster? I’m hooked on… greens and blues with gold accents, orange, red, pink and yellow with black accents, and green and white with silver accents.
