Spring Mantel Reveal
Several weeks back, in the midst of the gloomy gray days of lingering Winter, I announced to the husband/lover/best friend that I was leaving to go buy me some Spring. He doesn't always hear so well. I watched as he gave me a funny look, and then he shrugged his shoulders and went about his business. Afterwards he told me that once I had gone, he got a stab of fear that I had simply gotten into the car and driven south. Way south. Like Florida south.
I simply found a collection of vases in different sizes and shapes, in those three colors. Then I looked for a variety of flowers and weeds that appealed to me, again in my color theme.
Another difficulty I had was my oh-so-helpful puppy, who wanted to help by tasting and chewing every flower and leaf. Finally after a stern word from me she left me alone.
Later I found out that she had gone and eaten the decorative flower off my newest pair of summer sandals. I guess she was just hungry for a floral snack, but for now, she's getting lots of stink eye from me.
When I look at some of the home decor magazines that are out there, sometimes I have to wonder if the decorations they feature on those glossy pages really do appeal to anyone. Often I think that most of what I am seeing is downright hideous.
Now Dizzy Dick, don't you be worrying about me. I'm not dead, I'm just heading up into the mountains for a few days. I'll be back to blogging again soon.
