The other night I needed a little pick-me-up. I was thinking about different decorating projects I could do, but then reminding myself that I need to tackle the bigger stuff first (which I have been, believe-you-me), but then feeling like I just wish I could be “done” one little room so I could actually just play around in it, but then realizing that it was going to take a little while and not to waste my time creating a bunch of decorations that just aren’t going to work in the final room anyway.
It’s a noisy place inside my head.
So then I came across this idea on Pinterest. And it was do-able. And would take about 3 minutes. Not too much time to waste at all!
So I got to play around a bit without feeling too silly.
And then I got to take a few pretty pictures of it!
I just wrapped a little 20 gauge wire that I had in my kitchen utility cupboard around a mason jar and twisted a little hook out of the end.
We have all these little plastic hooks around the house in random places and I still haven’t taken most of them down yet. So I hung it from one of those.
I stuck some lilac branches in and called it done! I love the little bit of life it brings to this corner of the room, with its visible cords and half ripped-up floors.
It’s a great little pick-me-up for a corner that badly needs it, and every time I see it, it’s a pick-me-up for me too!
P.S. When I clicked on the link, I couldn’t find my way to the original person who came up with this idea. If you know, let me know so I can credit them!
