It's my birthday in a few weeks and I've been mulling the past few days over the events of the past year. I turned 40 last April and it's really turned out to be more of a pivotal year than I ever imagined. Lots of changes... both good and bad, but, being the pessimistic realistic person that I am, I keep dwelling on all of the bad things that have happened. I'm trying to change that pattern, though, and focus my thoughts on the all of the good, happy, and positive things in my life! (And there are a lot of those... I am quite lucky. :)
One good thing from the past year is that I started this blog... I've really enjoyed sharing things I make and see and am inspired by. Here are some shots I've taken recently of some bright, cheerful things in my life that have made me smile.
My new wine bottle candleabra:
I saw something similar at a party we went to a couple of months ago - the one I saw held taper candles and I thought it was such a neat idea. And a great way to save and re-use a nice wine bottle. I decided to get the tealight holder style, because I always have a ton of tealights in the house, and well, I just thought it was super-cute.
Ceramic bunny basket... candies... enough said.
We also still have a ton of these cute daffodils in the back yard. I was worried they wouldn't make it through the cold nights we've had lately but they seem quite hardy. They smell divine too.
Thanks for sharing some happy things with me. ♥
