I have got the spring fever bug.

At this time of the year, I get the spring fever bug. I don’t know if I ‘m just so tired of winter by now that I think a change in my surrounding will help or what. But after cleaning our main bathroom and painting the woodwork a couple of weeks ago, I still needed a change. So I got new purple hand towels, a matching throw rug and toilet seat cover.

The old towels and throw rug were still good, so what to do with them. 
Well, I had a half a gallon of bathroom wall paint left, so I got this idea that it was a good  time to paint the half bath upstairs. It was a very bright pink that I never was that fond of. It was time for it to go. 

That way I would have two nice and very clean bathrooms and at the same time be able to use the teal stuff from the main bath.

All went well. The room is small so it didn’t take long to paint. The only problem was that odorless paint isn’t that odorless and it was too cold to open a window. The smell got to be. It was a good lesson learned, tho. I decided painting a room is a thing of the past for me. Hubby says “yeah, right.”

Wonder what other bright ideas I will get before it is nice enough to be outside. You can bet it won’t be painting.

Just heard the forecast for the next 5 days. Highs in the upper 40's and lower 50's.
That will be so nice.

Take care,


  1. You're definitely more ambitious than I am. My spring fever results in pouring over the seed catalogs - nothing too strenuous. lol The baths look nice and eventually you'll be able to open that window - like maybe in April. ;-)

  2. I have been like this my whole life. Love doing creative stuff. I am also one of those people who get ambitious on rainy days, too. And very lazy on nice sunny days. On those days, I just want to sit in my rocker on the patio and watch the world go by and the bumble bees, and the butterflies and whatever happens by.

  3. Looks good Rose. I still haven't painted my living room yet. I keep meaning to....the weather had been so nice and warm, due to the drought I kept wanting to be outside.

  4. That is where you will find me, too. Once spring gets here that is.

  5. Wonderful changes made by you. It looks so bright.
