Knowing its value

I didn't make any resolutions at New Year but I've now thought of a project for 2016.  In 2015 I worked to have less messy places in my home but really that isn't enough.  I want beautiful places, places which feed my spirit.

I've never been a good housekeeper. Let's be honest - I'm a lousy housekeeper.  It's just so tedious!  I'm hoping that if I look at it as creating beautiful places I might feel a little more positive about it.  We can live in hope!

This is the first beautiful place I have created.  I had to go to Tesco today so I treated myself to a bunch of daffodils and I've put them in a favourite vase on my great granny's chest of drawers.

Last time I posted I quoted, "Frugality is not just about knowing the cost of everything. It’s about knowing its value too."

2016 will be about valuing the beautiful and creating more of it.


  1. We all need a little treat now and again. Being frugal gives those treats more value. The daffodils look beautiful on the chest of drawers.

  2. That is a beautiful space, indeed! And you are so fortunate to have your great-grandmother's chest -- what a treasure!

  3. Good on you. We do need beautiful spaces and yours looks really lovely.

  4. I can quite happily look over, through and around my crafting clutter and focus on one little spot that delights my eye.

  5. It's like a little oasis. Very comforting.
