When I was rearranging and cleaning my living room last week:
I also cleaned out some of my kitchen cabinets to rearrange in there, too. I moved half my cookbooks from my cookbook cabinet to the counter in neat, controlled stacks. I was trying to get all of the OTHER clutter into the cabinets. I thought maybe stacks of cookbooks would look better than my laptop, the horizontal files, loads of paperwork, kids' school stuff, products that needed to be reviewed. . . . . . etc. I moved all of that stuff into the kitchen cabinet beneath the counter and into the cookbook cabinet. I have since changed the cookbook arrangement. Everything around here is always a work in progress! I make tweaks all the time. I like things a certain way for a little bit and then I get used to it and need to change!
While I was in the cabinets under the counter, I found the wooden beer crate my stepmom got my hubby for Christmas last year (or his birthday, maybe?) I figured I'd move it out into the light as a decoration in my living room.
I was picturing some pretty white flowers in the brown beer bottles.
When I went on an impromptu shopping trip to one our local discount stores last week, I found this cheap wedding bouquet. It cost me $3.99!!!
I figured I could dismantle the bouquet and use the flowers. I just pulled the bouquet apart and put a couple individual flowers in each beer bottle.
It looks exactly the way I was hoping it would look. I think it turned out pretty darn cute!
I also found the "awesome" canvas below and the beaded sticks that are in the silver vase. I love shopping the closeout section of our discount store! So many cute things.
