This day has felt full of promise from first blush. I woke up today feeling lighter in my soul. I'm feeling completely recovered from a back injury from last week. I'm also feeling a lightness in my heart after having a hard, but much needed conversation with someone I love last night. The weather has been beautifully cool today. This day is whispering autumn and I'm all too happy to listen.
The windows are open. I've had music or Gilmore Girls playing all day. I just learned that I can play Pandora radio through my DVD player. Gah! Technology! Fall candles are burning, summer scents are packed away. The house is clean. I'm slowly moving bits around the house and making it feel a little fresher and cozier in eager anticipation of what is to come.
After a years long search for baskets or containers to hide my DVD collection in our glass fronted entertainment center, I finally had the idea to paper the inside of the doors instead. I found this Rifle Paper Co. wrapping paper and I'm so in love. The list of things that stress me out is not that long but clutter is at the top for sure! I can tell you staring at this mess any time I was sitting down to relax did nothing for my inner peace.
Now I can barely stand to look at that photo and it hasn't even been 24 hours since I finished this project!
Instead of spending $150 on baskets I spent $8.50 on a roll of paper and still have a sheet leftover! I just used Washi tape to attach it to the back so even when I'm looking inside the door it makes me happy. Peace and serenity are restored!
I've got so much going on around here that I want to share, including several half finished projects. I'll be back soon but for now I'm going to go make the most of what's left of this amazing day!
