With all of the cold, snowy, bitter weather we are having (brrrrrrr), I thought it was a really good idea for us to revisit a homework assignment we had last year at this time...
Here are the three simple steps:
Step One: Pick a place in your house where you spend a lot of time--a spot that is visible to you most of the time that you are home... (the picture below is of my office windowsill...what I am looking at right now as I type this).
Step Two: Put a pretty vessel there with some with water in it...(anything will do--even a drinking glass from the kitchen).
Step Three: Plunk some pretty stems in it...perhaps ones that caught your eye at the grocery store as you did your weekly shopping.
TA DAAAAH! Homework done, and I bet there is a smile on your face. :)
At this dreary, drab, cold time of year, I think this simple and inexpensive task is the most important thing we can do around the house to brighten things up and lift our spirits.
Be sure to do your homework! I know it will lift your spirits and help chase the winter doldrums away. Once you have your beautiful blossoms, snap a picture of them and share it with me on Revealing Redesign's Facebook page! (Have you "liked" Revealing Redesign yet??)
