Around the Coop

I should start by saying Welcome to all of you new visitors! 
Ashley, over at The Handmade Home included our Laundry Room in her Make Me Smile: February Edition!

Do you ever look at someone's blog, read their words, and think..."If we lived in the same town, we would totally be friends!"? Well, I do. 
Ashley's blog is so inspirational, she is a southern gal, a talented mama, and I think we would be friends.

Ok, back to business...
The sun is beginning to shine a little more around here, 
and I am energized!
I have been crossing things off of my household to-do list lately and it feels 
sooooo good.

Hanging on the wall in our kitchen is this mirror.
It is a Pier 1 mirror that my husband brought into the marriage, and used to be various shades of red, blue, and yellow. It didn't quite go with our house, so I gave her a makeover.  
For the longest time, she has been hanging lonely on the wall, desperate for some company.
After a quick trip to World Market, where I picked up these ceramic hooks for only $1.99 each, 
I screwed them into the base of the mirror and now have a convenient place to hang my colorful aprons. 

The pop of color makes me happy every time I pass by...
and I think I may actually use my aprons more now that they are in reach.

Another bit of yellow cheer is this new piece of wall art by Anahata Katkin
I purchased it at one of my favorite online stores...

Hope you are have a sunny day!
