Bringing Sunshine to a Dark Winter World
Here we are in the heart of winter. Everything is cold, bitter and dead, and that's not just your mood. (No wonder bears hibernate during this time.) I long for the beautiful greens and pinks and yellows from the summer days. When taking a trip down the road brings a smile to your face just looking at God's design.
It's during these times that I especially like to freshen up my house and office. And, you don't have to break the bank to get a couple of lovely bouquets of flowers.
These were made for my daughter's first birthday party and then I repurposed them as décor around the house and my office. I have a lovely cup of happiness in every room now.
Stop by the produce section at your local grocery store. I found a beautiful bouquet of white daisies and pink carnations for $10 total. I stopped by the craft section and picked out some artificial berries for $0.99 a bundle. Then, I just added them to a couple of mason jars I already had on hand. I spent a whopping $14 and got 4 beautiful bouquets to freshen up my house.
New Years Resolution: To make a couple of fresh bouquets every couple of months. I love how easy it was and how beautiful they can make a room.
