But being the little sister that I am I decided to take a few pics of Becky's house to share with you. I didn't even ask her permission. I just thought it would be a lot more fun for her to just see them here on my blog and be like, "hey that's my house!" After all what good is it to be a little sister if you can't have some fun on your older sister's behalf every now and then. And don't worry Becky, these are good pictures. So enjoy Becky's front room while I am busy recovering at my own house. Today is all about laundry, laundry, and more laundry. And please don't stop by because it's after 1 o'clock in the afternoon and my kids (they are on a long Spring break) and I are still in our pajamas eating frozen pizzas because we haven't even bothered to get dressed or go to the grocery store. Cause if we got dressed, that would just make more laundry for me to do :)
This is Becky's front room that she recently redecorated. She did some lovely board and batten and then slip covered her couch and added some end tables, pillows and lamps for pops of color. I think it's kind of funny because in High School our school colors were orange and blue, but at the time I thought it was an awful combination. I've seen the error of my thoughts, and in recent years I've come to love the colors together myself.
Becky made the two blue pillows herself and her friend gave her the orange round one. She got it at Goodwill and told Becky she had to have it for her front room. I think her friend is right, it gives such a great punch of orange whimsy.
I love these lamps too. I don't know where she got them, but I'm willing to bet it was either Home Goods, Marshall's or TJ Maxx. I think my Mom and I went to 4 different Marshall's while we were in Arizona. I really wish we had one here in Utah!
I love the photo collage Becky did above her couch. She chose some very simple fabrics, mirrors, a photo and some craft paper to frame, and she pulled it all together perfectly. That's a picture of the Arizona LDS temple that 5 of my siblings and I were married in, so it's a pretty special place for our family.
And don't you love this bicycle painting? It sits above Becky's piano. She made it herself. I'm going to have to try something similar one of these days.
So that's Becky's front room. I hope you enjoyed it, if you did leave her a comment here so she doesn't get mad at me for sharing. I'm hoping to get crafty this week for Easter. I ordered a Silhouette machine that's still sitting in the box it was mailed in. I'm a little afraid to open it. I'm hoping it's really user friendly because I'm not all that tech savvy. I'll let you know though and share some of the things I make with you. But for now I'll just be busy doing laundry. :)
