|I'm crazy about convex mirrors and the arrival of this pair of tiny antique specimans was so exciting! |
They are reflecting the columns that lead into the kitchen and make the ceiling look 15 feet tall.
And that's okay. Although I did receive a few new treasures. And new items, even the small ones, sometimes provide the push needed to inspire a few changes. And what better time to do it than the start of a new year?
|I have a lock collection. My husband gave me this one for Christmas. |
It's the first square one I've ever owned!
I think after the holidays, when everything is put away (I finally finished this past Saturday), a house can feel empty and even a bit lifeless. But that also provides a clean slate and the opportunity for little updates and small changes. Turn it into the winter version of spring cleaning. Just add fresh flowers and music and I promise it will be quite enjoyable!
|The way the sunlight was coming into the living room today, it almost looked like spring, |
except for the red berries that are abundant on the Holly tree just outside the window!
I definately don't think new things are always needed to make changes, sometimes the best place to shop is at home! Just moving a few things such as a lamp, the items on the coffee table, a chair or small work of art, not only gives the house a fresh perspective, but it's owner as well! Now where to put those convex mirrors...
