Happy Things

11 May

Hello everyone! I hope you had a pleasant Mother’s Day filled with hugs and kisses, macaroni jewelry and homemade picture frames.

My dear sweet husband and little girl rewarded me with some lovely flowers in an adorable blue, vintage-looking planter. I love them!

Every time I walk by them I smile. I think it’s so important to have things in your home that make you happy. Not expensive things, just simple, beautiful things like fresh flowers in a pretty pot.

Or this mouse pad.

It’s kind of random, I know. But I found this fabric at Jo-Ann and fell in love. I discovered a tutorial from Make It and Love It for a fabric-covered mouse pad and I was sold. It was so easy, 10 minutes tops. Every time I glimpse over at it I smile. I’m smiling now. I wonder if my husband ever notices me sitting here and smiling at my mouse pad. He probably thinks I’ve gone over the edge which isn’t far from the truth. But as long as I can bring my happy flowers and my happy flowered mouse pad to the loony bin I’ll be golden.

What object in your home makes you smile?

    1) I try to always keep fresh flowers in my house. And that always makes me smile.
    2) When I moved into this house all on my own, the very first thing I bought that was a new decoration was this big red ceramic polka dotted chicken. I keep it in my kitchen. I love it.
    3) A framed print I got on Etsy that says “every little thing is gonna be alright”

      The fresh flowers thing is a big one. Now I just have to keep the cats from eating them…

      I need to see a picture of this chicken! šŸ™‚ And the print sounds like a perfect reminder…
