Sprucing Up for Spring!

Spring fever has hit! That means it is time for some sprucing up around the apartment. A perfect place to do this is my small dining room table. You might recall that around Christmas it looked like this:

Then after the holidays it looked like this:

The bland browns of the corks and pine cones are a tad too depressing for spring, so on a recent trip to the farmer's market, I bought some beautiful flowers and rearranged the whole ensemble:

I love the flowers, which are called "bachelor's buttons" (I think!). I was quite satisfied with this arrangement and had no plans to change anything. As luck would have it, though, I went on a fun outing last weekend to an art studio. It is the kind of place open to the public, where you paint whatever you want on a small canvas while enjoying music, friends, and some adult beverages. I created a work that turned out decent, and when I finished it I thought that it might go really well sitting next to the flowers. I was right!

Can you spot the other tiny change in this picture? See it? The frame on the wall has moved to the right!

Yep, I decided to remove my wall herb garden (sad face) because the plants weren't getting enough light. Don't worry, I have plans for a future herb garden! Stay tuned for more on that in the coming weeks.

As you can see, I moved the door series frame to the right and now there is a ton of space (and some nails) above the table. I'm thinking of getting some sort of lamp to hang there, but I'm open to other suggestions!

After a pretty long winter, I'm so happy to be bringing in some spring to my place!
