When it comes to "decorating" outdoors, I have little to no knowledge or creativity. So I haven't a clue what to do with a couple areas in our yard that need some attention. The area below was crying out for color, so with the prodding of a friend, I picked out some bright pink flowers--mini impatiens and some smaller petunias called "tiny tunias!" There is lots more that could be done, but this was a nice baby step in the right direction.
I have gone to the same hairstylist for several years, and she always kids me for wanting the same cut every time. Lately, I've been feeling like I needed something shorter and fresh for summer. I didn't really have anything in mind, but I was also nervous because my stylist is much more experimental with hair than I am! I told her I wanted something different, but still low-mainteance and I wanted to be able to pull it back. So here's my cut--I really like it and am glad I decided to try something new! (Granted, it's not a drastic change, but I'm not really a drastic kind of person. The last time I did something crazy and impulsive with my hair, I didn't recognize myself in the mirror and left the salon in tears!)
One of the displaced items from our move was this cabinet, formerly housed in our only bathroom for extra storage. Now we've upgraded to two bathrooms (wahoo!), but there wasn't really a place for it in either one. Though I didn't want to get rid of it, I wasn't sure what to do with it until my mom had a brilliant thought. She suggested I paint it to coordinate with the kitchen and use it as a cabinet for my mugs and tea/hot drink mixes. I loved that idea, and wanted to show you the results! Of course, you're all invited over for tea time. =)
