Last nights post seemed to resonate with quite a few of you. As Deborah said it “I’m drowning in creativity”, Pat is “so tired of the shuffle of stuff” that she is thinking of hauling it all off”(been there, almost did that), and Joyce just wants us all to join the crowd that is part of the big club called ‘works in progress’.
But Cherrie has some comforting thoughts for all of us “An organised mind seldom produces shades of beauty”. Now that is my way of thinking!!!
But there is nothing like posting some big embarrassing pictures on your blog to spur one into action. Look what I did today. I cleared that big mess off of my garden table and made a nice big Spring centerpiece. And while I was at it I gave that garden shelf in the back a little makeover too.
Of course the most time was spent in clearing away the mess I had left behind in past weeks. Finding a place for those unused wreaths and other decorating paraphernalia wasn’t easy. It did made me realize that a good purging and organization round is definitely in order.
But all in due time. For now everything is put away and can be semi-easily found again when needed.
When I had cleared the table and the shelf and everything was wiped clean and waiting for things to come, I hopped on my bike to get some fresh flowers to use.
I bought these at the DIY store, not the best place to buy flowers but they were nice and cheap and with some TLC form me, I hope they will last a long time anyway. I gave them a good soak in the garden sink first, because they looked a bit parched.
And then it was play time…….
Adding bottles, some natural thingamajigs, a candle (that I will most likely not light in there) and of course the flowers.
The shelf got a super easy treatment. Just some black and white action, with a little green for good measure.
And then I happily clicked away with my camera…
Yeah, the start is here. One part of my garden is ready for some lounge action again.
And I am sure that when I will be sitting outside under my porch and enjoying the beauty of my little table decoration, my hands will start itching to get started with the rest of the terrace and garden too.
Or so I hope…..
Wanna come and lounge with me?
And hopefully I will see you soon again…. some more craft room stuff is almost ready for a reveal, Yeow!, and I feel a serious urge to start baking again too….. and I also feel that my need for some serious ‘playing stylist’ fun is heavily overdue. So stick around for things to come.
