~ A Beautiful Day ~ The Velveteen Rabbit blog ~


Hi friends
It's such a beautiful sunny day today in Seattle
 so I took a few photos of the light streaming in my living room.


It feels like Spring


Light and bright...


I may just spend some time on my cozy white sofa and read some decor books...
well...
actually I've been busy organizing and cleaning..
"Spring" cleaning!


Such a beautiful day and I am so thankful for it...
Also...
Today I met Jessica who has the blog The Velveteen Rabbit
The beautiful shabby green dresser is going to Jessica's darling home.
Jessica is going to use it in her daughters' room.


I love meeting fellow bloggers and readers of my blog.
We chatted a bit and realized we have so much in common.
We shared a good laugh when our husbands were talking to eachother about how they miss their leather sofas and more "manly" decor! Lol.
Our husbands are so understanding about our love for "shabby chic" and white.  :)

(Jessica and her daughter Maci)

Jessica's precious little 5 yr old girl Maci is fighting cancer.
HERE is the link about Maci and her story. 
~ Please keep her in your prayers ~


Have a wonderful weekend friends!!

Rachel

Oh, you have such a beautiful home.
I had to smile when I read about our husbands who have to live in our romantic, shabby decorations. My husband would like to live with black and steel, but sorry, no way.

Have a nice sunday

Hugs Bente

Your home is so pretty. I love all the white and how uncluttered it is. I know mine will look similar when it no longer has carpet. Wood(actually we will be putting in whitewashed pergo) gives the rooms that bare feeling I am so fond of. Your home inspires me. I notice all the rachel ashwell touches too...and love so much!

Hi Rachel. I am so glad I popped onto my reading list today and saw your post. I just messaged Jessica since we have the unfortunate connection of children with leukemia. Sounds like they are in good spirits but I wanted to give her the perspective of someone who has walked through the fire and come out the other side alright. Your home looks beautiful. Wow! Spring cleaning???? Guess that's one advantage of living in WA instead of CO. LOL! Can't complain, we've had SUCH mild weather this winter.

Hugs,
Judy

Evi said...

your home is so pretty and peaceful.
I am also getting the house spring-ready, but I think your weather is better suited to it. I am not complaining though, we could have feet of snow like last year.
I will say a prayer for that sweet little girl. No child should have to go through this.
Have a wonderful, spring-like week.

Everything looks as beautiful as always, Rachel. Did you just get that blue table? I don't remember seeing it before or maybe it just looks bluer than usual with all that nice bright light.

Oh, that's so great that Jessica bought your dresser. She is such a sweet person. Her and I have visited each others blogs for awhile now.

Hope you have a good week ♥

Hi Rachel,
Just wanted to say you have the most beautiful living room; it's so soothing; would you mind sharing your wall paint color? My walls are green but I'm thinking of going white and I'm having a hard time finding a good shade.
Gorgeous home,
take care, Jenah xo
