Anyone that knows me very well knows that when it comes to decorating I am an even Steven kind of gal.
I see others do unbalanced décor and I like the look, but I have a hard time doing it myself.
Recently I had some kind of a weird flu virus. Didn’t actually know that’s what it was until my daughter read about it.
It started with my ears feeling like they were filled with water. I mean I could actually hear water slushing around in there if I inserted a Q-tip and twisted.
Then one night my entire bedroom was spinning. So bad that I actually got sick to my stomach. Felt like I had just stepped off a bad, very bad carnival ride. lol!
A sinus headache followed and this went on for about 4 days. Finally last Thursday I started feeling like my old, yes ‘old’ self again. I’m wondering if that had anything to do with me decorating my mantle a little off balanced? Normally I would have hung the wreath ( A $3 thrift find that I added little faux pumpkins to) right down the center of that window. Not sure if it was my being unbalanced or just plain laziness that caused me to hang it off center. The window didn’t have a nail in the center. But it did have a little handle on the side. Heaven forbid walking out into the garage to get a hammer and nail. Remember, I’m a little off balance. I could have easily fallen down. Hee-hee!
We all know the rule of decorating in threes. That was easy, this set of funky corn came that way. I’ve had them for years. I usually use them outside. I stitched the Merry harvest years ago also. Still like it’s primitive charm.
Today I am so very thankful for my health. It just takes a simple flu bug to realize just how important it is. So glad to be feeling a little more even Steven these days. I will however leave my mantle unbalanced. It’s simple, but I am kind of liking it.
Let’s all remember to have gratitude in our hearts and give thanks! Not just during the month of November, but each and every day.
Soon those of us in the good old USA will gather together with family, and perhaps friends to thank the Lord for our abundance. I love that this sampler reminds us to not only be thankful, but to speak kindness.
I certainly hope that none of you are feeling ‘off balance'!
