Hi everyone! I so enjoyed reading the ways you guys motivate yourselves to clean! Diana mentioned that she rewards herself with a cup of chai. I totally forgot that I used to love chai! I can’t for the life of me remember why I stopped drinking it? Anyway, I think a hot cup of chai will be a reward that I'll use as soon as the weather gets cooler.
When I was cleaning my living room I had taken some things and placed them on my dining room table to get them out of the way. There were a couple of items that just happened to look good together (at least to me). So I moved them on top of my dresser and created a new display.
I had just put these moss balls from Michaels on top of the candlesticks just to get them out of the way but I thought they looked cute. Sort of sculptural.
I had stacked these two platters one on top of the other and put two of those iron flowers on top so I could take them downstairs to put away and I also liked the way that looked.
Liked it better with just one flower. I love changing out the display on this dresser. We eat at least two meals a day in this room so it's nice to have something different to look at!
Then since I like to layer things (less isn't more for me), I added another thrift store mirror on top of the one that’s hanging on the wall.
These are the same style mirror but different sizes and found at different times. They used to be gold and I spray painted them black. The candlesticks used to be brass. I love my spray paint!
This display - A result of serendipity (good luck in making unexpected and fortunate discoveries)!
Hope you are all having a wonderful week!
