To accept the award,  we are supposed to reveal seven things about ourselves. We've recently done that here and here, so I thought we'd reveal seven things we're doing cart wheels over right now instead...

1.  Beautiful Outdoor Spaces.  We're doing a post with some fabulous inspiration for these later this week.

2.  Fabulous Gardens.  We've been talking about these non-stop.  We've partnered with a couple of very talented people to show you plans for some amazing transformations later in the month.

3.  Bright Colors.  We're so ready to infuse The Colors of Spring into our lives.  Think Pink, (Click here), Think Orange, (Click here), and next up Think Green.

4.  Planning For Easter Brunch is a real treat.   I'm never happier than when the entire family is together in our home.  Not the craftiest person in the world but I've already bought the supplies and just have to try this.

5.  A new Spring wardrobe is an absolute must right now.  On the prowl for great white blazer.  Have you got any suggestions?

6.  Sister and I are way behind on the whole Spring Cleaning , organizing thing.  It seems there is ALWAYS something else we would rather do.  Just found these fun colorful file folders here.  Maybe they will inspire us to get to work on our offices.

7.  Last but not least, we're so ready to fire up the grill.  Just bought this book and have plans to grill through it this Summer.  We'll be sure to share the results on Sunday Suppers.

Did you notice???  

How just a touch of orange says a whole lot?...Black and white really sets it off?...Orange can be either Modern or Traditional?...Orange looks fantastic paired with gray and grungy old shutters?...Actually orange pairs well with lots of colors...pink?...purple?...yellow?...Orange is a little edgier than red?  Orange is warm and rich for Fall yet cool and crisp for Spring!

How about you?  Can you do orange?

  It's your turn.  Let's talk!
