Some Glimpses and a Sneak Peek (and a thank you!)

I am taking a note from Angela over at Number Fifty-Three and sharing just some glimpses from around my house.  Because frankly, it's sort of a mess at the moment as I am knee deep in my hallway project!

Speaking of the hallway project you may see a little glimpse of that in these photos.  Be on the lookout!

Still have Christmas lights in Sawyer's room and he falls asleep with them each night.

Love this new painting....

I set the dining table in a hopeful for Spring manner.  And by the way, I won a credit to Michelle''s shop (her blog is Primp) and was thrilled to order this tool caddy!  Love it all decorated for spring with moss and lemons!  THANK YOU, Michelle!


 Well, what do we see here?

The minimal mantle, with a little birdy for a Spring touch...

Love these jars my parents gave me a while ago.  Please disregard the dust on the shelf.

Ah, the guest room.... I love this room because no one plays in it.  It stays neat and that helps me hold onto a teeny piece of sanity.

My favorite bedroom vignette...

Here's an image to make you happy.

And yes, Emmy still has her lights up, too!  We just love having them up!

Now, back to the hallway.... today I will start to tackle the white walls.  But first I must buy paint!  Later gators!

Ooh love the horse paintings AND seeing some glimpses of your place! I'm doing a little home photo shoot on Friday to go in a post and will be more 'glimpsey' to ;-)
Gorgeous shade you've been working with - I've loved the snippets on instagram!

Sally, Ry, & LaLa said...

Love this! Thanks for sharing!

Julia Konya said...

You know what I'll have to say right?
I loooove the gnome, bunny and deer. I think they need a toadstool and skunk yet. ♥

Catherine said...

So cute Cassie - especially the gnome!

Andrea said...

Fun post, you should do that more often. I know you are always changing things up around there. I love that horse painting too and I'm really digging your new chalkboard wall!

I love that tool caddy and those numbered jars! So cute! And I know what you mean about the guest room! I was just thinking the other day that I clean one area of the house and five other areas get messy! It's so hard to keep up with!
Take care!

Nice glimpses, Cassie. Your guest room looks like a great place to escape. I wish I had one room that stayed neat all the time. We live in a small house, so every inch gets a lot of use.

Janel from NellieBellie said...

Yay!! I spy darkness :). And a gnome that is adorable. Dreamcatcher. I need to make a dreamcatcher. Love those things!

Jenny said...

I spy a fresh and pretty blue door! LOVE! Can't wait to see how it all looks.

Thanks for the glimpses - the lights made me chuckle this morning. :-)

Carmel @ Our Fifth House said...

Love these little glimpses! Your entry is coming along so fabulously!! Love it all!

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

I like the way you snuck the blue/aqua door and the chalkboard wall in there! Can't wait to see the bog reveal!

Angela Santaniello said...

Dang. You're on to me. My house was such a disaster that I could only show glimpses. ;) Seriously, though, thank you so much for the shout out and, as you know, I love your decorating. Love, love it!

Lovely.

And I have one to add to your tree advice board...

remember to bend and sway when the winds come 'a blowin'!

Happy Wednesday, my friend...

Elizabeth @ The Little Black Door said...

Glad to hear that the hallway hasn't swallowed you up yet! :) Can't wait to see it!

Dana Frieling said...

Silly girl, no one would notice the dust if you hadn't called it out! Huge fan of your tree advice...love.

Blondie's Journal said...

I love the caddy...you can do so much with it. And I love your new painting!

I wish I could have left some Christmas lights up, too! ;-D

XO,

That image sure made me happy. :) I kind of just went through all those pictures as fun spring inspiration. :) Thanks! Haha....Hope that painting is going quickly!

Allison said...

Your door looks so fun in that aqua! Very pretty Cassie. We still have one strand of white lights in our living room. Something about little lights is so magical. I would love to keep them up year round. Love the tree quote. Happy Wednesday!

Ali Richardson said...

I love it all!!!!!! Like, duh. Of course I do. Especially MY guest room. wink wink. XO

Holly Browning said...

You are painting your door blue against the chalk wall??? I can't wait to see the rest.
I love horses in art...one of my favorites. I want a big one for my next house.
Good luck with the hall!

Carol@TheDesignPages said...

That's a great tour of your home Cassie. I love seeing all the little things since they're the things that make it all finished. Love the gnome!!
