Goodday everybody. Is it Spring yet for you? Here in the low lands we are smack dab in the middle of the most glorious Spring weather. Outside everything is coming out in the most amazing array of green colors. I had a three hour train ride this week and I just couldn’t stop staring at the landscape outside my window. The richness of the colors was amazing, sometimes almost as bright as neon lights. Although I don’t especially revel in spending six hours of my day in a train, the scenery outside softened that ordeal quite a bit.
So I am loving green at the moment and I am bringing it inside too.
Like in my latest window sill decoration.
Check out this easy window sill decoration I have going on in my living room. Brings back the seventies doesn’t it? I pulled it together in ten minutes. Most of that time was spent soaking off the labels from some of the bottles.
Now I hope this image doesn’t make you think we are some sort of drunks around here. Only two bottles were emptied over a weekend to serve in this vignette. My guy even protested a bit (for show I am sure), saying he wasn’t in the mood for wine. Ha, didn’t fall for that. The rest of the bottles came from my stash or came out of the recycling bin. Good thing I don’t go to the recycling station that often, one never knows when an extra bottle or two will come in handy.
As I was making this vignette I realized that I had actually been adding quite a bit of green to my house lately. I think it started with the layered photo frame mantel. In the original version of that the only color came from two faux green plants.
Than there was my topiary, adding a bit of real green to my living room:
Of course my wreath was green too….
And now there is this collection of green glass bottles working hard at being a beautiful window sill decoration. I guess I do love green as a color….
And I sure love how the light plays with the glass bottles. When it shines through them it is magical.
And when there is no natural light, my string of sparkly lights add their own bit of magic to my window sill decoration:
So what do you think. Too much of a seventies vibe for you? Too much Christmassy? Or are you with me, and thinking it is always the right time to add some more sparkly lights to your life?
Let’s hear it……
