As far as fashion trends go, we all know history seems to repeat itself. And gingham is a trend that seems to recur frequently in spring. I’m not sure if that’s always been true, but for the last few years it definitely has. And I can see why! Is there anything fresher, or happier, than gingham? It’s inherently cheerful and crisp (just like spring!) and it has timeless appeal.
Happy Sunday friends! It’s been a busy week here at the house – a new dining table came for the kitchen/breakfast area (I’ll be sharing that as soon as I find chairs!) and I also posted about my search for a new dining table for the formal dining room. You can weigh in on that here! And I also finally got new drapes in the downstairs areas! Things are finally starting to take shape..
Hi there and happy Friday friends! Today brings us another French Country Fridays, where myself and six other bloggers are sharing our ideas, decor, tips and even DIYs in French-ish style!
This past week was my kids’ spring break, so not a whole lot of blogging got done! However, I am in the process of re-styling my dining room and I blogged about my ideas for a new dining table if you missed it. I’ll be sharing some changes in the breakfast room area soon, as well as (finally!) new drapes for the downstairs! It feels so good to finally be doing some of the things that have been on the to-do list for years!
So I’ve been looking for a dining room table for what seems like forever now! Not looking everyday, all-the-time mind you, but looking here and there and shopping around for at least two years. I’ve been looking on the internet, in catalogs, shops, and antique stores, as well as on sites such as Chairish and Ebay.
Today marks the beginning of spring break for my kids, with spring weather arriving this week, right on time! For some reason, even though I haven’t been in school in years, the school schedule is still the thing that defines the seasons for me. It doesn’t truly feel like spring until spring vacation. Either way, I am so happy to have a little sun and some open windows after weeks of cold and rainy weather!
