Thanks, Mom!

Those of you who know me even a little know that I have a passion for decorating. There isn't much that is more fun to me than planning out and executing a house-beautifying project. Thank God my husband is supportive of these proclivities! But also, thanks to my mother, from whom I got my decorating genes.

My mom is the queen of turning a little into a lot, decor wise. The things she can do with a can of paint are amazing! Although we tease her about the constant rearranging that goes on in the Munsell house, growing up in that house is what gave me any skills in that realm.

And now I have "inherited" the mother lode!

My mom decided to get rid of a ginormous stack of decorating books, and I got first dibs. I'll take them all, thank you very much!!! Hence, I am the proud new owner of this bunch of books:


So now if you are ever in need of some decorating ideas, stop by the Libby Library and pick out a book or two to borrow for inspiration!
