Hello, how was your weekend?
Things were calmly productive here. Last month when I started work on re-decorating my studio I was also motivated to start a flat wide purge. Living with a person who doesn't like change means this needs to be done slowly by making decisions one at a time and with good reason. In a way that's great because it means we don't lose something we might regret letting go of later, but sometimes I get frustrated because I love change. Change of routine. Change of surroundings. It always feels refreshing to see or do something in a new way. As the saying goes 'a change is as good as a holiday'. So over the last few weeks we've been slowly making changes and there have been lots of trips to the re-use cabin at one of the city's recycling centres and a few trips to the charity shops. There are still more to come too.
I'm also doing a studio purge as I'd like to free up lots of space in there and aim for a more minimalist feel. Not true minimalist, obviously, but a lot less cluttered or overcrowded than it has been. For a wee while I haven't felt like I've wanted to spend a lot of time in that room because it has felt overwhelming. That's not good is it!? Anyhow, I'm saving up all the lovely bits 'n' bobs from my studio purge and am planning on holding a wee destash sale in a couple of weeks or so. Whenever I get organised really but of course I'll keep you updated.
All of that is completely unrelated to today's favourites from 'making everyday beautiful', but I hope you love them anyway!? I am completely loving the pretty fresh greens and the 'petals & vessels' theme. Oh, but when I have cleared out a few more things from this flat I am planning on adding a few more shelves here and there for more plant space. I've been living without growing fresh herbs for far too long! There you go, we got there in the end... hehe!
