    I loved the crosses, but I really love the clean slate too. I am more and more into simple and clean.

    1. Yes simple is good! I crave it lately more and more

    1. Thanks my friend. It feels new and that’s good.

    Love the crosses on the wall so much so hated to read that you were getting rid of them. However, I love the end result as much! So fresh and clean! Gives me encouragement to change things I really in my own home! Change is good – we can always go back if we miss it!

    1. That’s what I thought too. I could always put the stickers back on but I really like the clean feeling now.

  3. Oh I’m quite sad to see the crosses go because I think they looked amazing but I TOTALLY understand feeling like something is dominating a space and needing a change – they were quite a statement! Loving the fresh new look and it really does open up the space so much more now! Personally, I like the rug sticking out a bit more 😉 Also, loving the kitty door! That is too cute. xxx

    1. Thanks Kimberly. I was somewhat sad too but also ready to let go 😉 I think I like it sticking out more too.

  4. I loved the crosses but I really like the clean slate you have now! It always feels like clearing out time to me after the holidays. I tend to have claustrophobia with so much “stuff” around. I like the rug as it is in the last photo, ending at the junction of the entry hall and the other area. The wall hanging is beautiful! Guess I missed it somehow. I love the one in the middle photo above also.

    Change is good! 🙂

    1. Thanks Pat, yes I think the urge to clear out stuff after Christmas because you’ve had so much stuff around is very common 😉

    1. Thanks so much for reading Debbie

  8. I sure did love that cross hallway, but the fresh look is nice too! Thank for the kitty hole link!
