Decorating With An Oversized Glass Vase

Decorate A Space With Oversized Glass Vase

I’m sharing the use of oversized things on the island today. Our ceiling height is around 30ft and it gives me room to add a tree to the island if need be and still not look disproportionate. When I spotted the tall glass vase at TJMaxx I couldn’t resist. I had no idea how I’d use it but once I stumbled upon the faux pussy willows it all came together.

Look at all that sunshine streaming in; it looks like spring has finally arrived in Michigan. We had 77-degree temps yesterday and I’ve been outside getting the porch decorated, potting all those ferns I purchased, and hanging birdhouses.

I also went lawnmower shopping yesterday; our old one has a hard time keeping up with the amount of acreage we mow. When hubby is around he can do it with our mowing attachment for the Bobcat, but if I have to mow I want a piece of machinery I feel comfortable with. It just amazes me a cheap mower is $5,000. Maybe I’ll just get a goat instead.

I have plans to paint the back deck chairs today. They are hunter green, a color I’m not fond of, so spray paint to the rescue. I can’t wait to show you what I’ve done with the porch and deck. I simplified things this year and it sure was enjoyable not feeling like I had to decorate like a magazine. I made good use of those $5 ferns and only had to pick up a few new plants.

Have a wonderful Sunday everyone and thank you for stopping by.
