Don’t you especially appreciate beauty in the winter months, when days are shorter and much more gray. We have alot of gray days here in the Pacific Northwest. Lately though, we have been enjoying some sunshiny days and it is wonderful ~ it almost makes you forget it’s wintertime, except that it’s chilly!
Simple beauty in my home definitely makes me happy ~ and I love that it doesn’t have to be expensive!
A simple primrose in January brings an abundance of color and joy! I am always so excited to see them in the stores this time of year! This one, a gift from my sweetman, makes it even more special!♥
Homemade cheeriness!♥ I love these potholders and hope to make some more soon. The color and cheeriness of these remind me of you, Pom Pom! Although small, these potholders are so handy and also the perfect size to put under a bowl of hot oatmeal in the morning. For the inside batting part, I used some older potholders that weren’t very pretty, so they are the perfect thickness and gave me the satisfaction of making something new out of something old. The instructions were found in this book: Handmade Home: Simple Ways to Repurpose Old Materials into New Family Treasures
Abbie has completed a couple also for Home-Ec.
A recently thrifted chair (when all furniture was half off ~yay!) with an afghan made by my great-grandmother.
Glass jars ~ it is a special treat to have a few older ones!
But this one especially brings me joy ~ a recent thrift store find for 20 cents!!
And jar storage in the garage ~ yes…beauty can even be found in not so pretty places! 🙂
Fresh food beauty ~ a lovely splash of color for this time of year ~ and delicious too!
“Many people…seem to think that we can secure beauty only by profuse money outlay–that beauty is in the ratio of expense. On the contrary, beauty is largely independent of expense.”
