Sometimes I forget to look around and appreciate what I have.
It's often the little things that I enjoy the most like a simple
basket of white mums.
Or a mason jar covered in chalk paint with some
country flowers from the dollar store.
And of course anything in my favorite shades of blue.
I piled a couple quilts on top of a cupboard so I could see
And I'm loving some little touches of rosy pink here and there.
I'm always trying to cut down on the amount of "stuff" I have.
I feel like I either need to use it or get rid of it.
The cloth draped over my pink stool is actually a valance from
the Rachel Ashley line at Target that I picked up a long time ago.
I have never been able to use it as a valance so I thought
I would try it here.
I did a little more tweaking to my entryway bench
with my recent Homegoods finds and a few
other things in my stash.
Even something as simple as a pickle jar with some
wooden spools in it make me happy.
Once I find an arrangement that I really like, I tend to
keep it that way for a while like this mantel vignette.
Above all, I want to remember to appreciate my family every single day.
My daughter is in eighth grade this year and my son just started
his senior year - I have no idea how that happened.
This year is going to go by way too fast.
I hope he doesn't catch me just staring at him too many times! : )
Thanks so much for stopping by and let's remember to
really see the things that make every day special!
