Simple - Part Two
During our wet damp Spring I had visions of spending summer days sitting on the deck in the sun, reading, relaxing etc. I even positioned the birdhouse so I could see it while I was on the deck. Just a simple thing, but I had a relaxing summer plan.
Well, we all know how that worked out. I supposed I could have sat out alot this summer under a tarp to stay dry!
This morning was perfect - just as I had imagined. So without wasting any time............
I enjoyed a couple of morning cups of coffee and finished reading The Secret Life of Bees. I enjoyed it and just downloaded One Day by David Nicholls.
Because some of the things I bought yesterday are gifts I am not going to show them here but I do want to show you the simple touches that the owner of Sweet Briar Boutique uses to decorate her packages.
She uses old magazines and catalogs to create bows to decorate a simple brown paper shopping bag.
So cute and so simple. She also uses magazine pages to wrap small pieces like jewellry. Add a few cute decorated clothes pins and look how cute her packages are......
Just a little simple can make a big difference. We all need more simple.
