~Sprinkled Ice Cream Glasses~   Do you love sprinkles? I’m not talking about sprinkles of rain. I’m taking about ice cream sprinkles. My youngest son LOVES sprinkles!

~Color, Color, Color~   I love color! It adds fun and vibrance to a space. It always brightens the room. It puts a smile on my face.

Window Shopping Wednesday
