Whenever something new comes into my place, it affects everything else. Everything gets rearranged. My favorite thing in the world is to rearrange pottery. Pottery is a tactile experience, it's meant to be touched. I adore simple shapes. Here are my new vases:
The gray vase is from the Goodwill, cost $1.99. The white vase in the middle is from Marshalls, cost $3.99. I know I'm cheap! And I'm proud of it. The white vase to the left was a house warming gift from my sister-in-law. Talk about your thoughtful and perfect gifts. Fortunately, my sister-in-law is also infected with the vase sickness, so she understands me.
Here's a close up of the flower pot in the middle. It has actual lace glued on it, not just an imprint. I love it! I've always had a thing for lace, I'm surprised I didn't have any in my home before. In keeping with my rule - something must leave before something new comes in - I re-donated the turquoise vase I got from the Goodwill. (See previous post here.) After experimenting with this vase, I didn't really like it in my home. Since it was cheap and part of a good cause, I could re-donate it without guilt. It's the ultimate in recycling!
Now to rearrange. What a perfect thing to do on a beautiful gray, drizzly Saturday. Put on some music, open the windows and pour a cup of Columbian coffee. I've said it before, I wish I owned a pottery store. Here are a few of my experiments before finally settling on the perfect arrangement (for today).
Here's what I finally settled on:
Ah. Here's a little corner of my place. Feeling cozy, warm, protected, happy and so very grateful. Hope you are having a wonderful Saturday, dear readers! xxoo
