{Lightening Up}

my home sweet home is getting a floral makeover
the
hues of the season
are creeping inside and filling it to the brim

lightening up my rooms
with sunny yellows and sky blues
I call it
"Spring-erzing"

Your photographs belong in a museum, or at the very least, an art gallery. I'd buy every one. ;-)

You might have just created a new movement, or at least, a new word! My house also needs some "Spring-erzing".

Teresa said...

Koralee...your pictures are just scrumptious!
Is that a sofa back there behind those bright yellow daffodils that I need to come and PLOP down on!?
I do believe it is!
I'd just love to PLOP down on that sofa...
have a cup of hot tea in that sweet tea cup...
and eat PINK SMARTIES! xxooxx
So delighted your daughter did so well in the dance competitions!
Tell that sweet thing I said CONGRATS! xxooxx

Gorgeous colors, both your post pictures and your image of the day. I'm so in love with your arrangements, you keep surprising and inspiring me every day. I do love your wall shield... is it a wall shield? Your white couch is adorable too with these lovely colored cushions. Sugar Sweet Eye Candy!

my favorite shade of blue...sharedby a favorite koralee!

Rosie said...

Oh...that is a fine idea!!...it will surely put a bounce in your step...when I do any redecorating, the true test as to whether "it works"...step out of the room...when you revisit said room...does a smile appear on your lips...if so...IT WORKS... love this happy post...Rosie

Hi Koralee, Thank you for your lovely comment about my blog :-) try my best, but yours is sooooo colourful and cheery.

Your photos are great, I was only wondering if you have made them into postcards, as I collect postcards from bloggers and around the world.. It is a new thing that took off last year and bloggers have my address and randomly send me for collection.

Have a good week, I am sure it is sunnier there than here .. very cold today.

Barbara said...

Magnificent colors in the first photo, Koralee! Living in Florida, we don't change much from season to season, or perhaps I am happy with my surroundings, finally. But I remember changing everything around when I lived in Michigan. A symbol of summer coming!
