Feeling the need to brighten my corner of the world, I have begun to add some lighter touches to my home decor. I'll be ready for spring when it arrives. In the meantime...
I have debuted this beautiful new table runner, made by my dear friend Jodi. I think I have shown great restraint because, although Jodi gave it to me for Christmas, I have kept it tucked away in my linen cabinet until the change of seasons, just waiting for the calendar to turn. No matter that it snowed up a storm as soon as I put it on my table. It is a herald of springtime to me.
Again, I went in search of cheery flowers. This time, I found a pot of sunny yellow tulips. Cheery indeed! They are atop the kitchen island in an old crock, and they make me smile. (Do you have any tips on replanting these outside later?)
I couldn't stand the winter white berries in this crock in the living room one more day. It's a bit too early for forsythia, so as a temporary measure I plopped in one of my topiaries. Bekah says it's too small for the crock, and I think she is right, but it's green and it's staying. For now.
What about you? Are you lightening or brightening the corners of your world?
