I’ve finally settled on what to put on my buffet. There was nothing wrong with what was there.
It just wasn’t me.
I’d been waiting to decorate the buffet for Debbiedoo’s Magazine Copycat Challenge until one day, I “let go” of the notion that keeping this vignette full time wouldn’t work because it wasn’t “real”… just something pretty to look at and served no function at all.
Here’s the magazine inspiration.
Pardon the wrinkles. They come from years of sitting in my idea binder. I’ve had this page for so long that I can’t remember where it came from, but it is possibly Cottage Living.
I LOVE it! There is nothing wrong with appreciating something simply for its beauty. In fact, it’s a good thing.
So, out with the old
and in with the new!
This diy chalkboard is very easy to make.
Finally, the magazine picture isn’t a “some day” source waiting in my idea binder, but a reality!
What realities have you made happen lately?
Until next time,
