This week I have been on a nesting frenzy. Who knows why? But since Monday morning I have been focused on the inside and outside in the garden, creating new corners and rearranging what we have and even unpacking some boxes that were still in the garage from when we moved. Yes, 15 months ago. I have weeded, pruned, weeded, planted and then swept. I’ve been busy. And it all looks lovely.
A new planter box in my kitchen window has made it look as pretty as a picture. All our star jasmine has started to come out as well so it smells amazing.
We moved in a bookcase that used to be at Rob’s office in behind the couch which kind of acts as a divider for the lounge area of our enormous living room. And? I have somewhere to put our books at last! I so missed having them around. And now they are back and out of the garage and making me happy once again!
And I have moved the little yellow sofa table that used to be behind the couch over the front door along with a favourite tiled Elvis I also found in a box and I am in love…all over again.
I don’t know about you, but fiddling around with stuff that you have already, moving and rearranging just brings me joy. It can transform a space and make you fall in love your stuff all over again without spending a cent. Win! Why don’t you move something around this weekend? Go on! It’s got to be more fun than spending Saturday morning baking scones for the town’s monthly morning tea and then all day Saturday at a dress rehearsal for a 4 year old’s ballet concert. Or setting up a hall for the Village Christmas gathering on Sunday night, which is what I will be doing.
