Southern Living Goodness

I don't know about you but around this time every year I kind of get a little blue.
It's cold outside. The excitement of the holidays are over and my home usually feels a little empty after being dolled up for Christmas.
We've been in this house for almost 5 months now.
I have a long list of things I want to do here.
My problem is that I'm impatient.
I want all of my projects done yesterday.

I read this post over at The Inspired Room last night and she is so right.

Now I'm looking at my blank spaces in a whole new light.

So, while I'm waiting for the right inspiration to coordinate with the budget and the calendar,
I'll leave you with this lovely room that I fell in love with
while browsing through my favorite magazine.....Southern Living.
Enjoy & have a great weekend.
(I just love that coffee table.)

(Look at those rectangle dishes mixed in with the pictures - lovely.)

(Dishes, dishes everywhere.)(Cozy dining area. Just look at that symmetry - a girl after my own heart.)

(A close up of the console table she uses as a sideboard.)

Simply beautiful.

i agree with melissa, it's just not worth it to not be patient. patience is a virtue (they say) - i think it comes w/age :) LOL!
