Almost There!

One more day of school! I feel like I'm 10 years old again; I'm so excited for them to be out doing things like swinging on a tire swing!

My Summer Decorating Plans

School is almost out, and I cannot wait! I feel like it's my Summer vacation as well as the kids'. No more homework, no more driving to pick up kids from school...

It is when I get a lot of projects done around the house. This Summer, I'm planning on finishing up this wall before I tire of it altogether (all pictures taken with iphone):

I need to clear the clutter from these bookcases. See how we have more books than the shelves can hold? Books are spilling out the front:

Then, my most labor intensive project is painting this entry. It looks sorta pink right now - it's actually BM Shaker Beige. It looks like a yellow-beige in my house. I'm thinking of painting it either a white, or BM Gray Owl. 

I need to do something with this vignette. It's the first thing you see when you enter. This was supposed to be temporary to fill up the space when we gave the grandfather clock to my husband's brother.

We'll see how much I actually get done. I still need to put away some Christmas houses that are in the basement!
