Sometimes I spend my time completing seemingly meaningless activities. This might be one of those projects. But the outcome gives me a lot more satisfaction than playing computer solitaire. There are little vignettes all over my house that make me smile and feel good. So what exactly am I talking about? Wrapping empty boxes in odds and ends of paper, printing out vintage pictures provided by the The Graphics Fairy, and tying them up with cord and old trims.
This is the entry into my guest bedroom--which my husband calls the antique girly room. Click on the picture for a larger view if you want to see the packages more clearly. I found some old glittery pine trim in the bottom of one of my Christmas tubs and it added the perfect touch.
Then I liked that vignette so much, I decided to do something similar for the dining room table.
Who knew Tassimo boxes, smoked oyster boxes, and odd bits of cardboard could make such great Christmas decorations.
Have I told you how much I like being surrounded by large pine trees and being able to run out into the yard and gather greens as needed?! It sure makes Christmas decorating easier.
So this is how I wasted an hour or so on this fine cold Saturday.
There are lots of projects and blogs to check out at Funky Junk Interiors for the Saturday Nite Special. I am linking to that party, as well as the impromptu link party at Living with Lindsay, Romantic Home, Finding Fabulous, and poppies at play.
