Happy New Year

I know I'm a day late wishing you Happy New Year!!! I spent most of yesterday taking down Christmas decorations and rearranging the living room.  I do LOVE Christmas and decorating for the season but when you have a small living room the tree seems to take up most of it.  Once it comes down I feel like I have a lot of room once again.  Steve was home so he helped me move furniture and decide where things should go.  I really am trying to simplify my decorating.  I have been saying this for a year now and have been working hard to do it.  I can't help it I LOVE stuff!!!!! lol  Anyway here's a sneak peek...

 While I was absent those few months Steve and I found a new discount furniture place to shop.  While we were there he saw this hay rake and encouraged me to get it because it was so cheap .  We didn't know how we would use it until yesterday.  I just adore the way it looks here!  This is a phone picture so the quality isn't that great.  The brown "coverlet" you see are just scraps from Family Heirloom Weavers.  They were super cheap.  The baskets were thrift store finds.



Another teaser....


Today also marks the day Steve and I are starting to be healthy.  We both agreed we would try the Joe Cross 3-Day Weekend Juice Cleanse.   If you haven't seen his documentary Fat,Sick and Nearly Dead it is very inspirational.  That is what got Steve and I on the band wagon.  After this mornings juice I'm not sure if I can do this, but I'm willing to try. I think I actually need a juicer and I need to add water or something to them as it is more like a smoothie than juice.  Stay tuned I'll let you know how it is going.

Looks great!!! I'm simplifying as well and loving it. Less to dust too!;) I'm trying to get rid of anything that says "cutesy" when I look at it;) I got a bit over excited when you said you got your fabric remnants at the family heirloom weavers..... I hopped right on over to the online store to look and then it hit me you probably live close and go them in store! Lucky YOU. If I'm wrong please let me know if I can find them online;)
