Pretty things around my home make me happy.
Yesterday God provided an opportunity for me to offer a "happy birthday!" to a friend and these pretty things made me smile.
I love the opportunity to get out my pretty tea cups.
My mom gave my sister and me a different matching cup and saucer, every Christmas, for 12 years in a row.
Another favorite pretty thing is in my bedroom. I love to walk by and see my bed made with the pretty pillows on top.
I'm inspired to make my bed in the morning because this is what I look at during my quiet time before starting school. . .
The smaller pillow in the middle was my favorite find and an inspiration for the curtains which my mom kindly and painstakingly made for us last summer.
But there are a few practical items lying or hanging around the house.
Such as these. . .
One is in the family room,
and one is even in the bedroom. . .
Can you guess?
They are not streamers!
Can you say FLY TRAP?
Yes, if you stop for a visit watch your head or it may become permanently affixed to the hanging fly trap paper strategically placed throughout our home due to the unusual invasion of a vast amount of flies outside which find their way INside and have been driving. me. crazy.!
Spring around here has been welcomed with open arms but the flies. . . not so much!
