Thanksgiving at our home this year was simply one of the best! This is definitely a year moving into the holidays that I have so much to be truly thankful for. My amazing husband, family, friends, and health are all tops on the list!
Wow! It is amazing how time seems to be flying — here we are into Spring with Mother’s Day only a few weeks away. I thought I would put together a few sweet Mother’s Day ideas that are easy on the budget. A few of these you could put together as a bundle for the perfect thought.
You guys may not know this about me, but I love, love, love anything French! For years (let’s say about 20), I was always looking for interesting, worn out vintage French dough bowls and have a few pretty amazing ones that I keep out year round. Just recently, there has been a shift in my search and I am now always in search of amazing vintage French breadboards.
To chop or not to chop, that is the question — first, there is such thing as too many throw pillows. I can attest; my husband has said this for years! If you over accessorize a piece of furniture no matter if the pillows are all chopped or not chopped, it will always appear too chaotic and messy. I suggest using the rule of odds. When there is an odd number of pillows, for example, on a bed, it breaks up the symmetry and creates interest to the eye.
I love fresh, new beginnings. I love surprises. I love hope. Each moment is another day of beginning, another white page, a big blank canvas.
That’s how it is with a new project. In the beginning, there is no color so, add color. In the beginning, there is no texture so, add a little texture. And, in the color and in the texture, add layers upon layers of creating until you step back to discover, “yes, this is my happy place.”
