Are you Tired of Winter? Let’s Talk Spring Decorating!

Are you Tired of Winter? Let's Talk Spring Decorating!

Pine Cone Hill

I‘m SO ready for spring. Are you? You know I always love cozy decorating and Fall, but around this time of year, I’ll admit I start to go a little stir crazy and want to transition EVERYTHING in my house over to spring! BRING IT ON, SPRING! I’m ready for ya. Where are you SUN? Come out come out, wherever you are!

And SPRING DECORATING is exactly what we are going to talk about tonight at this super fun Twitter party I’m hosting with the one and only Annie Selke, a designer and the creator of two of my all-time favorite rug and textile companies, Dash & Albert and Pine Cone Hill!

Annie definitely knows how to liven up a home for spring so I’m very excited to get her ideas and tips tonight and host this party with her! We’ll be asking questions of you all, chatting and getting inspired for spring decorating and seasonal projects! Will you follow along with the fun?

Are you Tired of Winter? Let's Talk Spring Decorating!

Did I mention there are prizes? Oh yes.  You DO NOT want to miss this.

Have you ever participated in a Twitter party? Tonight is the perfect night to give one a try!  My friend Donna from FunkyJunk Interiors has post that shares all the details on how to take part in a Twitter party, including how to use TweetChat, so I hope you will check it out and then join us tonight! Twitter parties are fast paced, but so fun to get to chat with so many people who love spring decorating as much as we do! I hope you’ll be there? Please come?

See you tonight on Twitter at 8PM ET (5PM PST). Let your friends know to join you by sharing the graphic on Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook! Follow the hastag #StirCrazyASC and be sure to follow @AnnieSelkeCo and myself @theinspiredroom on Twitter to keep up with the party!

An Almost Spring Giveaway

An Almost Spring Giveaway

I‘ve mentioned this a couple of times recently, but I really am enjoying Instagram. I don’t have much time for social media, but this one is just FUN to me! I love being able to take a quick pic on my phone and show friends on Instagram what I’m up at the moment, or show something new around my house without always doing an entire blog post about it on the spot,  or just being able to share a funny pic of Jack. I like the instant connection and the creative fun of taking pics with my phone!

The other day I bought a new lamp at Target and I was not only able to show it off right away on Instagram, but I also got a little chuckle with a few others in the comments over how things just seem to LEAP into your cart when you are shopping at Target (always when you are on the way to buy shampoo).  Right? It is apparently a common phenomenon. I adore Target. LOVE it.

Anyway, if you combine Instagram and shopping, I’m totally IN. I can’t help myself! And that brings me to the reason for this post. It really has nothing to do with Target even though I love shopping there haha, but it does involve Instagram and shopping in general.

Just for fun, how would you like a $600 visa card, to spend on whatever you wish? Nice, huh?
After a long winter, I say a little spring retail therapy is in order.

Some blogging friends and I pooled our hard earned cash so one of you can win the $600 “pot of gold” to buy whatever your heart desires!

And honestly, SOMEONE is going to win this. I totally think it should be YOU.
