f I had to choose two words to describe the progress of April, it would be “intentionally focused.” After feeling off track from a crazed schedule in the month of March, I was able to recharge while still managing to accomplish my goals this month. Organizing my thoughts into a cohesive priorities list to use, as a guide each day has been a total game changer.
April was all about getting my booth at The Pickers Market back on track and I shared a lot of painted furniture. I decided to take the Herboriste potting station to the booth this past Sunday after 4 pieces of furniture sold in last 6 days. I’m not going to lie, my heart did break a little bit when we had to unload it but I know someone will love the potting station as much as I do. I brought home a similar work workbench last Friday and spent a good part of Monday painting it. The Sea Glass Green Inspired Dresser, the 3 Drawer Washed Nightstand and the Duck Egg Painted Bookcase have already sold.
Of course, I was on a treasure hunt this month. These are a few things I picked up in the beginning of April. I’m going to be a co-host of Thriftscore Thursday tomorrow and I am so excited about it.
On the home front, we’ve been enjoying the touches of spring around the house. I can hardly believe it’s almost time to get started with summer decorating. I have a few fun ideas I’m working on already that I can’t wait to share with you in May. I didn’t have a lot of home décor posts given the amount of painting I had to do for the booth this month but I shared my Mom’s Easter Inspired Table and our Kentucky Derby Inspired Mantle. I also teamed up with 4 other blogs to for a family recipe swap and made chocolate chip cookies. They’re my favorite.
Even when it’s raining which it has every day been for the past few days, I’m glad to spend time outside on the front porch. This rusty wheelbarrow was headed for the trash pile when I decided we could save it and use it as a container garden.
Lastly, I gave myself some grace and 48 hours of uninterrupted down time to read and review the book, Love The Home You Have by author and blogger Melissa Michaels. It was fantastic. My Mom will be here on Saturday and I am totally passing this book along so she can read it too.
Goodbye April, it’s been fun. May, if you’re listening, I can’t wait to see what adventures you have in store for me!
