I have got a bit more Fall decorating to share I hope you don’t mind.
This is how it turned out:
This is how I looked all through summer.
Or more precisely how it looked after we finished painting our porch and we hung that shelf back up.
This is actually how my Love decorated it.
I had done a summer version of it. Took me a long time and I wasn’t exactly very happy with it – probably why I didn’t take any pictures. When we were putting things back after the painting project was done, my Love didn’t think twice about it and just plunked some of the decorations back on there he thought were there previously.
When I saw it, my first instinct was to ‘do it over’ and put everything where I had put it before. Until…
I realized I liked my Love’s version better
He hadn’t thought about it! He wasn’t following any ‘rules’. He just did and followed his instinct!
And it turned out great.
I always struggle with these shelves. I really like them, especially now that they are all white against that Greige wall. But I find them so hard to decorate.
Maybe it is because you look up to them. Maybe because they are so narrow. I don’t know but I always struggle to get a good look.
Of course that’s why it usually takes me until the season is almost over to change them up a bit, or I don’t change them at all (yeah that has happened, that I had berries wreaths hanging there all through summer.
So when I decided that I wanted to get this corner sorted out. I remembered how that lucky summer version from my Love happened, and…
I let my hands do the thinking and not my head…
I just hung something here….
Plunked something else there….
Filled up a lantern with Fall bounty….
Left a lot of empty space….
Stood back and watched…
And decided that this is good enough…
I still think My Love does a better job at this than I do, but he doesn’t really gave a hoot about this shelf. So this will have to do. And that’s just fine. It is Fall, it is nice, it is me.
So do you recognize how sometimes to Get Things Done!
You have to let your hands do the thinking instead of your head ?!?
I’d ♥ it if you share your thoughts on this in the comments….
I am writing a series of 31 days to Get it Done! You can find all the posts in this series here.
On the first day I explained in detail what this series is about and what I am going to do, find that post and all the post since then in order here.
