Needs and Wants, there is a difference.  Every time I go off to church I'm reminded that I need to buy myself a brown skirt to go with my brown shoes and brown bags Or I need to buy a blackish bag to go with my black dresses and black shoes instead of mixing black and brown.  Anyway, I've done nothing about it and I am happy that I've thought of it mid week so I can do something about it before Sunday.  I found a great pattern for a handbag.  I'll let you know how it goes.

adding color

Changing spaces in my home always invigorates me.  I was noticing the lack of color in the playroom and decided it needed something.  I am changing the space to be a place to read and a place to play.  I took a soft chair and put it in the room with some storage spaces for books.  Then I added these butterflies.  They are like these from Pottery Barn Kids.   I also painted the main wall of the room today a light brown color.  I am happy with the changes.  I think the next step is simplifying the toys in the room so it is easier to keep clean.
