It’s been really windy around here lately.
I even have to wear a cute ball cap so that I don’t end up eating my hair while I take my daily constitutional.
Doesn’t that sound so important….daily constitutional?
The wind was so strong that it kept blowing my cap off my head. My ponytail fed through the expansion hole in the back didn’t even help to keep it on.
My dad used to say, “The wind doesn’t blow for nothing.”
It’s a funny remark. But…whenever the wind kicks up, I’m reminded of his phrase.
The wind didn’t cease through the night.
The next morning I woke up to see a branch from our so very skinny Snowball Viburnum bush leaned so far over it almost touched the ground.
I asked my husband to lop it off for me and bring it inside.
I love the color of the blossoms when they are still green.
White is nice.
But green, is, well, more dramatic.
In the end we can say extraordinary things come from the wind.
Like this super simple centerpiece for my table.
A fun table runner made of book pages.
Vintage blue Ball jars.
A few stems from that skinny Snowball Viburnum bush.
How much easier does it get?
I know you might want to know more about the book page table runner making appearances lately, or the pleated collar around the Ball jars. But, you’ll just have to wait. I know…I’m a tease.
Oh…and if you don’t have your own vintage Ball jars, you can buy new look-a-like blue Ball Jars, by the case. Just think of all the fun you can have. (And yes, this is a shameless plug. If you purchase the jars I just mentioned or anything else via this link on Amazon, I will get a tiny commission. [wink] It helps pay for my internet connection….thanks!!!)
Hope this put a smile on your face and inspired you to something extraordinary at your house too!
