"Where the Heck IS Uzbekistan"?

There now. Is that a better way to start my next St. Pat's decorating post? I don't want to insult any of my blog readers. Believe me, I am grateful for every one of you! I really never thought this blog would be any more than a way for my family to keep up with my antics if they were so inclined. So, when I started getting more and more views, I started paying a bit more attention to where my readers were. And, can you believe, I actually have many readers in Russia-didn't ever dream they would be interested in St. Pat's decorating. Do they even celebrate St. Patrick's Day? And, I occasionally have readers in obtuse places like Uzbekistan. That sounds like the made up country name used in one of the worst movies my husband and I ever paid to see-"The Mouse That Roared". The only good thing about it was that we were watching it in the beautiful old Fox Theater on Peachtree in downtown Atalanta-but, I digress.

Any way, I welcome each and every one of you, wherever you are! Today we are heading in to the family room and let's catch the few things I put in the sunroom. After looking at the pictures, I realize that the sunroom is once again the poor "step child" of my decorating efforts-whatever doesn't get used anywhere else, goes here. But, again, in my defense, this is the room where I load up all of the "just coming down" decor until it is officially boxed up. By the time that happens several days later, I am exhausted and have no new ideas. All we can hope for is some Pinterest inspiration and LOTS of tweaking to come-we shall see. With my recent realization of how soon Easter will be upon us, I wouldn't count on it! 

Must apologize for all of the lighting and flash backs in these pictures. It was gloomy outside and I couldn't find any place to stand to get a picture and avoid this!

I love this tin pitcher that was a gift last year from daughter #3. It is reading as really blue in this picture and I know you're all wondering what I was thinking but in real life, it looks much more "greenish". Maybe I need to swap out those blue hydrangeas- they actually even look blue in "real life"-sorry.

So there you have it. Almost done. Just a few more pictures to share. I have begun thinking about our "green" fun day at Nana's as the kids are already asking me when we are making green cookies next. Thank goodness for Pinterest. I will be heading right over to my St. Pat's boards when I am finished here. Really so much easier than dragging out years worth of clippings-way less storage involved and no more magazines to buy so way cheaper too. I'm sure there will be pictures involved. Stay tuned.

  1. That's funny. Malaysia is my second most views. Looking nice and green. I imagine you will be performing a quick turnaround on March 18! Can't wait to see it.
