I don't make New Year's resolutions and I don't choose a word for the year,
but when I came across the quote, "Life doesn't have to be perfect to be wonderful", I thought it would make a good motto for 2016.
So, what have I been up to in this imperfect, but WONDERFUL life I lead?
Mainly, I have been changing everything around from Christmas to everyday decor.
The dining room shelf turned white.
I stole a bunch of quilts from a cabinet in the living room and added them to the guest room ladder.
And of course one moves triggers another so new vignettes adorn the shelves in this skinny cabinet
and I spruced it up with a little ivy wreath.
My little shopping cart is now in the living room filled with a portion of my letter collection ( I have an addiction) and I discovered that an old wire crate fits on the bottom as a second shelf.
The ivy wreath didn't last long in the living room - the tall white cabinet in the entry needed a little color.
Everyone wondered why I would move my new red cart from it's spot in the entry, but it was just a tad too big.
My grandpa's rocker, spruced it up with some hearts I made the other day, takes up very little space.
Steve's kitchen got an update with a tall metal stool and then an unplanned change this afternoon.
I yanked a cord that got twisted around one of the shelves and then CRASH!
Not much survived, but I only lost 2 old treasures.
Even with the disaster in the kitchen (definitely not perfect) it's still a wonderful world.
