It’s spring and you are probably no different than me in
that you want to spruce things up a bit before getting outside in the yard. There
is no need to break the bank on this one. There are many little things you can
do to accomplish this idea. One of the easiest and fastest ways to do this is
just to move your furniture around. Call a best friend or
a grab a willing husband. Sliders come in handy when doing this task and can be
purchased at your local hardware store. Just put them under the feet of your
furniture and push. You can also do that Spring Cleaning you have wanted to do

quick and easy thing you can do is rearrange
your counter tops and coffee tables. Counters get cluttered up so easily. Thankfully,

gut feeling. You might even be able to make your own. Art makes you happy and
can add personality to your living space and lift your spirits every day. The
same goes for family photos. A simple way to freshen up photos is to swap out frames. You can pick up inexpensive
frames most anywhere. Also change the photos to fit the season. Retire the old
skiing pictures and fill those frames with summer activities and family
I love listening to music. Music
brings me happiness and peace. This can really add to the feel of a home. Music
stirs emotion and can bring a creative energy to your space so get that play

fun! Of course if
you need any suggestions or help I would love to assist you!
