roaming thoughts

Spring is marvelous. It's a time of renewal and new beginnings. It is a time of starting fresh and making changes for the better.

I am in serious debate as to whether or not to move my blog to another name. I've been blogging here for nearly two years and have made so many sweet friends. When I began this blog we truly were a family of six living in the country. Not so much any more. These days it's more like four of us. It's sort of a sad reminder to know that we have dwindled down to only four. Besides the numerical dilemma, I began this blog without any true mission. After a year or so, I finally found out that my favorite subject quickly began my quest of decorating my home on a budget. This remains my favorite to this day.

So, as I ponder this decision, I hope that my sweet bloggy buddies will all follow me if I choose to move along to another spot on the web.

WFMW: Cute Compromise

A chandelier at Lowe's for $99 made my heart sing. Recent car troubles meant I had to dig deep to finish our remodeling on the cheap. Lampshade, $4.99, skirt, $3.99 = $8.98 for a cute, cottage light fixture. I simply put a lacy skirt over the shade, nothing more. When I finally do get around to getting that chandiler, the shade can then grace a lamp (yes, Nester, I'm working on lamping it up.)

For more great ideas, scope out the WFMW tips!
