My New Lemon Cypress Trees
I can't believe I'm posting two days in a row in the middle of a work week!
I only worked half a day today. I needed an afternoon of rest to get rid of a nagging headache. Fortunately it went away after a few hours. Just after I arrived home the FedEx van pulled up to deliver a package. Last week I ordered two Lemon Cypress plants to use as decoration in my home and they arrived today. The arrival of these little beauties helped to inspire me to tweak a few vignettes around the house after my headache went away. If you read yesterday's post, then you saw this lantern I received from Decor Steals. For now, it is hanging in the opening between the living room and dining room.
Here's another shot. I am going to repaint that coral frame on my plank wall. I am having a hard time deciding on a color though! Suggestions?
Another tweak I made was changing the saying on my chalkboard. This one is more suitable for Valentine's Day and it will last for a few weeks after. I also hung that wall pocket planter from the bracket on the other side of the opening.
I love this chalkboard. It was originally a mirror. The mirror remains unharmed. I just turned it around and spray painted the back side with chalkboard paint. I can easily change it back to a mirror at any time.
Now, let me share my new Lemon Cypress plants. I added one to my dining table centerpiece.
I love these little mini trees. They are so cute and the bright green color is so pretty!
I added a few vintage figurines to my centerpiece as well as the new February calendar. I know I have had this same basic vignette going for a while, but tweaking it a little every few days makes it feel fresh and new.
My other little tree ended up in the kitchen for now. These little plants will travel around the house quite frequently I'm sure. I hope they don't grow too fast and I hope they do well indoors!
The last tweak was pretty simple. I rearranged the bottom, center shelf on my built in bookshelves a little. I also added a cute little garland I bought after Christmas on clearance. It isn't Christmasy at all to me. It is just little ivory colored felt circles strung together. I thought it was cute and it was just a dollar or two. I am still in love with my bookshelves and my handy hubby! If you're a new reader you can click on the link to see the entire wall of bookshelves.
So, those are my simple changes. Have you tweaked anything lately?
Take care and until next time.....
