January Posies & Rearranging
The daffodils my sister sent me for Christmas are blooming! So pretty! I love the frilly ruffled yellow trumpets on these!
Also blooming beautifully are the white primroses!
The second batch of paperwhites is coming along nicely too! Those green shoots bring so much hope!
Poor Thomas is feeling a little overwhelmed with the mess and not at all impressed with the flowers at the moment! I must admit that I can understand it! It's been like living in a rummage sale for the past week.
The mess has inspired some rearranging! The carpet is finally back where it should be and I've been moving my study around. Since I've lived here, the desk has been in front of the window, which I have loved... but it has also inspired a lot of day dreaming and in the winter it is so chilly! So I'm moving the desk to the wall and am looking forward to having space to hang some of my art and handwork where I'll be able to see and enjoy it and hopefully derive inspiration from it. I'll post more pics once it's all together. Changes are happening in the living room as well and I've created a nice little stitching corner that I can't wait to show you ~ after I've neatened it up a bit!
Even the little things have been getting some attention. I like to keep bead mixes in these old Altoid tins, but they were always sliding around and I could never remember which color was in which. Then I had the bright idea of storing them on edge (they fit perfectly in the tray!) and labeling them. It's not perfect yet, but it works for me and is easy to grab a tin or two when I want to work on a project! Eventually, I'd like to paint each lid to match the color of the bead mix inside.
For now, I need to get back to putting things in order! I just love freshening things up now and then!
