Hello sweet ladies. Time sure does fly doesn’t it?! Here I am looking at pictures of a little Fall vignette I did some time ago and I realize that not only is Fall already almost a month old, but in 10 Fridays it will be Christmas. Talk about time slipping away…..
Life is still a bit hectic on this side of the pond. I am still adjusting to all the changes in my day time job. I am loving the new challenges and all the new and interesting people I am meeting, but wowzer what an energy drain it all is. I am sure once I settle in to more of a new routine things will start to become less crazy. Or not, we’ll see.
Anyway back to the important business of Fall fluffing. I went green again. Seems to be a theme for my Fall fluffing, I did it last year with a vintage bottles Fall vignette, and with a Fall mantel in tones of green.
A new find at the thrift store was the jump off point for this little Fall decor. I found that green medicine jar and thought it looked pretty cool. And then when I went flower shopping nothing jumped out at me except for the green grassy leaves and berries. A couple of white flowers from the shop and the last white ones from the garden completed the look.
Sometimes decorating just sort of happens…..
….. I like it when it happens that way.
So how do you all handle the business of life? Are you like me and sort of fall still and lifeless in between the bouts of frantic hustling? Or do you carefully manage your energy and recharge while doing something totally different? I am and feel very busy, but somehow I have found the time to rewatch the entire series of The Mentalist on Netflix in the past month. Btw, I have never drank so much tea as when I was watching Patrick walk around with his permanent cup of tea, totally worked up a thirst in me. Anyway, I do know that when I am so busy in my head with everything that is going on and that needs attention, that I need time to just ‘zone out’ and watch something entertaining on the telly that always has the problem neatly wrapped up with a bow after 45 minutes, but still…. Wouldn’t it be nice if I could rest while wielding a paint brush.
I’d love to hear how you all manage the craziness of life, and how you all juggle the plates in your life.
But at least there are always flowers….
They do not rush, they take their time, they bloom when it is right for them and when they are done blooming they are simply done blooming.
There are always flowers…..
To remind me of the beauty in life that is free and abundant. That make me stop in my tracks and smell the roses. They make me pause and just be for a moment, be in the moment.
There are always flowers……
And there is the color green. Cool, calm and collected. Not demanding attention but just there. The perfect backdrop. The perfect companion. Green might be an odd choice for a Fall decorating color. After all in nature the green is fading and replaced with the wild and loud colors of red and yellow and orange. But inside green just works for me in Fall.
As does a white painted fake pumpkin and some pine cones. Ah pine cones. There have to be pine cones….
We’ll see where the craziness takes me next. But no matter what, there will always be the next little vignette, the next little decorating corner. And most of all, there always will be flowers……
