I am always a little thrilled when the holiday stuff comes down and you can start fresh. A new year is dawning and surfaces have been straightened and wiped down. Putting back the everyday decor takes on a fresh new start. I don't sew or craft so to arrange things in my home is I guess my creative outlet. Changing things around and coming up with new ideas to display my cherished goodies is just down right a heck of a lot of fun. And when you find the right combo of this and that and you say, "wah-lah," it is so very pleasing.
I had intended to paint the kitchen in 2011 but never got to it. Only about half my painting jobs were completed. I won't be painting straight ahead but instead we will be focusing on doing some maintenance to our home and cars. You know how when it rains it pours kind of thing?
Hubs spent six hours on a new faucet that we discovered Christmas day was leaking into the cupboard below. The old one that is and then the installation never goes smoothly. We have several things that need attention and then my check engine light went off in the car and so on. You know pressing life stuff. So any new decorating for now will have to be with items I already own or cheaply thrifted pretties.
I have plenty of stuff already so who needs more stuff really? I did put out my thrift store yellow check thermos on my kitchen shelf. I love it!
Kept the colors simple up here for now. Have to have a little red so the lid of the jar with the eggs will do.
