Happy Spaces

These thrifty little doily flowers made a lovely addition to my toi-toi stems! I love the natural tones and the way they surprise you when you see them hanging discreetly against the plant.
They were pretty easy to make, I simply snipped the flower from the larger doily and attached with twine like wool. Easy DIY and thrifty too:)

 Remember these bead sticks from last post? So pretty!

 I love to create these areas that make me happy to look at. They're a fantastic remedy after a stressful day and a great antidote for depression. I'm new to doing these sorts of things but thanks to pinterest I am well on my way!

 Even though it's Winter here I've been admiring summer homes this past week thanks to a Summer Homes Tour by Shabby Creek Cottage. Seriously drool worthy!

 We don't own the home we live in so major DIY projects are a no-no so instead I focus on the small spaces which are mine. I am making intentional displays that change frequently, dependent on what I have found in the second hand shops and what flowers I have. Everything here (except the purple flowers)  is either gifted, second hand or free. What's not to love about that?
 A sweet owl, two nests and romantic heart...
 An earthy pot that is nice to touch as well as look at...
 This heart was a lucky find!

I hope this post inspires you as I have been inspired by others.

Live well, love what you have and create happy spaces regardless of your budget or housing constraints...

May your nest be blessed,
