Ever have one of those days when nothing is going right? Every single last project I was working on hit a snag yesterday. The house was a mess and life felt chaotic. I was D-O-N-E… and it was definitely showing in my mood, too. Then I remembered I that it is technically autumn, even if it is still over a 100 degrees here in Arizona. So I spent a few hours cleaning up. Then I carted out all the fall decor and started putting a few things up in our music room, which is the first room you see when you walk in the door.
I dragged out my dollar store ceramic pumpkins…
…and my autumn vase filler.
My dollar store birds stay up year-round, but they still make me happy. They were hideous robin-type birds from Dollar Tree, but they got the same makeup that my candlesticks did, and I adore them now.
And just like that my mood improved. Have you ever made a few little changes to a room, and it makes all the difference? My head feels clearer, and I can think straight again. So now I am off to put up the rest of the fall stuff. Those other projects can wait a few days.
