Winter has sure come to visit this year – not just here in Canada where we should expect it, but it seems all over North America – even in the south where snow is not a common visitor! There is something beautiful about the snow as it covers the dull earth with its clean white dusting. And outdoor snow fun and snow days are worth celebrating – more on that in another posting. But with February comes the winter blues for many – and especially this year as winter has already seemed long and hard.
It is time to let the sun shine in again – and to catch a glimpse of spring! For me – sunlight and flowers ooze the hope of spring! There is nothing like a pot of daisies to bring a breath of fresh air into your home. And I’m not known for being minimal – I always bring more than one home! I just buy them at my neighbourhood grocery store – easy and inexpensive! Its all about having something interesting to display them in – whether it is a wicker basket or a colourful pot.
This pot is sitting on an old chair that sits in my front entryway, a chair from my mom and dad’s home – an antique – not sure how old – but my mom always had this in her entryway with something interesting sitting on it – it just makes sense that I would do the same. It reminds me of home – and it adds a country lived in feel to my home – and I love that!
Mirrors always help to bring in the light as well!
And so the sun shines in my front entryway – letting me know that spring is on the way!
Need a pick me up? Go pick up some fresh flowers – a small indulgence that will lift your spirits Beautiful!
