Where did January go? I’ve had other posts get ahead of this one but I’m back to share with you the rest of my Navy and Rust decor to carry me through the remainder of winter. If you missed the dining room done in Navy and Rust you can see it here. I’m so glad I changed the furniture slipcovers over to something more neutral, it makes adding throw pillows and accent pieces much easier.
Before I always felt like I had to change the slipcovers when I wanted a new color in the house, and that was a lot of work. Not only are they very difficult to put on they take up a lot of storage space. So until I decided on new furniture, you’ll be seeing my place using the gray an tan slips from now on.
I think the older I get the easier I like thing to be, and keeping the furniture color the same is much easier. I’ve been working on some new pillows to add to the sofa and chairs for a little bit of an early spring look. I happened to get a good deal on fabric from Country Curtains so I’m using that to make the pillow covers.
I hate to say this but it’s finally hit me, and I’m over winter. Lower Michigan never has the sun during the winter months, and when we do rarely see it we’re in shock. I’ve only had to pull out my sunglasses twice so far this winter. It makes for a long season when all you see is dormant trees, snow, and dreary days.
I’ve always loved Michigan winters but as hubby and I age and no longer do all the winter sports we’re looking for a new adventure for next winter. I do believe we’ve decided to spend time in Florida next year. We’ll try it for for a season and see how we like being away from home.
We’d have to leave our dog behind (with my son) and she’d be heart broken. If I just go away for a day she sits and stares out the window all day waiting for my return. I’m assuming she’d eventually get over that and become accustom to me being gone.
