It's starting to feel like summer is just around the corner, and I think my feet would look pretty cute in these 'Sea Urchin' sandals by Cynthia Rowley for Roxy.

Keep or toss?

I have a set of four wood chairs that are solidly built, have graceful angles and are pretty comfortable to sit in - and they were free! Yes, I picked up these treasures curbside... four years ago. Needless to say, they've been stashed away and still fall into the "unfinished project" category. I've sanded them, but could never decide on a color to paint them nor fabric for the cushions. I think I may now have a place to put them. I think they would contrast nicely with our traditional dining room table, or they may work around a reading table in the living room. But at this point I have had the chairs for so long that I am wondering if I should just chuck them. So, help me out: curbside-bound or spring project?

Why am I bringing this up now? Clearly I have been watching too many episodes of "Hoarders."

Look at what my mom had waiting for me when we arrived at her house on Saturday! We're not sure what it is, but I am calling it the turquoise artichoke and I love it!
