***shhh....I had a SPRING FLING TODAY.....

I have to tell you that THESE colors make me want to 
and shout...
and run about..!!
 I've been looking for a large WHITE owl vase for months...
then, today at WALMART....
there it was !!
...under 10 bucks...
I am lovin' it...

 I know not everyone gets their heart racing over

I do.

I LUV it for a base color to make all other colors I use really POP....

and when I saw this amazing rug in black and white, I nearly got a whiplash, looking all around to see if anyone was going to try to get it before I did....!!!

But I got it in my cart and
double-dog dared anyone to try to take it away from me.

A little 36x56 fun rug for under $30... 

"Yes, it's me and I'm in Love again....."
(Fats Domino sings that song and it's STILL one of my favorites...::)
I will love Mr. Domino to my dying day and THEN SOME..!!
but I'm getting waaay off track here..
 I can't wait to show you where all this fun stuff is going...
and that turquoise paint...
OOO, it's  such a luscious and delightful color...
doesn't that name just make you drool....?
meee, too.
can't wait to show you what I am about to paint...
nothing big.....but it's gonna be sooo fun.

I had me a good, old-fashioned 
today at WALMART.....
and it was so fun, shopping for

What have YOU brought in to bring a little SPRING into your home...??

  3. I just saw today a room on TV with the black and white and that shade of blue. I love those colors. Of course, Iove my owls as well.

  4. BJ, I love your paint color and your black and white rug! Owls are cute too!

  5. Love those colors too and I can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve! Now I must get to WalMart to get me some flowers! Have a great weekend!


  6. Isn't it awesome when we find JUST we want?! I love your owl dear BJ, it's adorable too. I love fresh flowers, they just inspired me to make a spring vignette, lol! Your B&W rug is fab with blue. Enjoy your weekend.
    Happy Spring,

  7. ooooo, you did good!!!

  8. Love the owl vase, the rug and the paint! Such pretty flowers too. Looking forward to seeing what you do with it all! Happy weekend!

  9. Hi Beeeej! Love all your new springy things!

  10. Gotta love flingin' in spring!! *lol* You got some wonderful treasures too. Good for you!! Thank you for sharing your finds with us.

    Blessings~ Andrea

  11. My daughter (19 yr) has decorated her room in black & white and popped it with turquoise . It looks great! Anxious to see what you do with yours!

  12. Lovin' your new owl vase BJ! His eyes are really cool-enjoy:@)

  13. Aaaahh…the suspense - can't wait to see!!

  14. Whatever you're doing, it will be great! I have done zip to bring spring into the house. I'm enjoying it in Blogdom, though.

  15. I can't wait, please hurry up! I painted my side door Blue Spa last spring, and my neighbors went wild ;o)

  16. You are such a tease! I love your owl, rug and paint color. Looking forward to the reveal!

  17. I love the colors, but I don't want to bust your bubble - I purchase a rug in black and white zebra print for my den and it is the WORST thing I have ever purchased. The vacuum pulls up the threads it comes undone and is a magnet for everything that comes along. I have to use the hand attachment to clean it.
    I was so excited to find it at Wal-mart but I am sorry now that I purchased it. I hope you don't have the problems that I do, but wanted to give you a heads up.
    Love the owl and flowers and it will looks terrific all put together.
    Have a great weekend.

  18. Let's see how all of this goes together. Are those shamrocks? I never thought of black and white as a base but you are absolutely right!

    Happy spring!! :)


  19. Love the little owl and the hydrangeas. Can't wait to see where it's all goin'!

  20. All that looking so pretty together. Anxious to see how it all comes together.
    Glad you had a fun shopping day and that owl is so cute.

  21. Not much Spring going on here yet in Snow Land. I did buy my daugher some soft, pink tulips though. Love your cute rug and it sounds like you had a grand old time at Walmart! Wow! xo Daina

  22. We are all decked out for spring here!! Tonight when Louis Dean and I were sitting out on the driveway with our evening beverage I caught a whiff of SPRING!!! You know that smell???? I can NOT describe it but I know it when I SMELL it!!! Yup!! Spring has SPRUNG in Texas!

  23. I can't wait to see what you are up to now! I love that color and your new rug and flowers and owl vase are wonderful! I think I need to head off to Wal-Mart right away! I keep bringing daffodils into my home for a touch of Spring. I'm sure that doesn't surprise you, my friend!

  24. I like all your purchases, the owl vase, flowers, and rug. Waiting to see how and where they will reside in your new home. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  25. Oh WalMart makes us happy..doesn't it? Your colors are beautiful and can't wait to see how you use everything! We have put some Springy wreaths on the front door and garage, as well as putting a basket filled with red tulips and white daisies on the coffee table!


  26. Hi bj, It’s always fun to finally put things in the card that make us happy. You had one of those days. Can’t wait to see results of this day! Enjoy your Saturday..........

  27. Love your WM finds! I bought a couple of new plants and a pretty yellow and white check dish towel with butterflies and a polka dot ruffle. I won't use it, just keep it over the oven handle to add a spot of spring to the kitchen. :) I found it at Marshall's, love that store.

  28. Love it all....just went to walmart this morning, but I didn't look for anything so cute!

  29. Your little pops of color simply entice me! I am puttering with Easter surprises all around. But that chartreuse and black and white together! Love. Love! I don't get to Walmart, but I do shop online there and Amazon!
