More Springtime Sprucing

Remember the image of the bedroom dresser laden with clutter and toilet paper? This last week I realized the dresser did not have any toilet paper on it any longer ... because we had used it all. Yes, it was not gone because I put it away, but because it apparently became a normal place to keep it and that is where we went when we needed a new roll.

Feeling rather sheepish and a bit re-energized from other organizing efforts, I now have pantry cupboards and the top of the dresser looking happy and presentable.

And of course, a little snip from the yard always cheers me up. I found that one of my glass floral frogs fit into this votive holder. Shove in some unknown shrubbery and a few lavender sprigs, and there we go!

Ahhhh. That wasn't so bad.

  2. Anna, that first photo is just beautiful... the combination of colors, the painting, the tray {oh the tray} -- very nice! And something green always helps.
