These red things normally spread here and there were corralled into the den and place carefully.
(Yeah, right! It took twenty minutes.)
Let's look at things that caught my eye and promised to give me joy for the next few weeks.
The heart basket usually hangs outside the front door, but I used it for Sweet Kitty instead.
A red wood/metal box repurposed from the Christmas decorations hold my prim sheep made by Brenda at The Rusty Thimble.
Yes, there is one black sheep.
Yes, you do see bottle brush trees.
My huge Carr ironstone pitcher holds a beautiful bouquet of fake berry branches on a stack of red dictionaries and the cloth scrap that was Dear Deer's scarf on the winter mantel.
I weighed the pitcher - a whopping four pounds and four ounces.
Can you imagine a waitress having to serve from that thing!?!
There's Teeny in her chair.
(A funny story about the fake berry branches. The "berries" are plastic and suffer from excessive static cling. Scout was helping by staying right underfoot wearing his Cone Of Shame. I looked down to see him spinning around chasing the "berries" clinging to the plastic of the cone. I like to have never got all those "berries" rounded up and in the trash!)
Besides Teeny, the red plaque moved up to the mantel with another stack of red dictionaries and thread spools.
What is that glow?
A red egg basket from Tractor Supply filled with white lights.
Also left from Christmas.
A warm, wonderful view during these cold winter nights.
It is a real life red mantel.
Most all of it reused from the Christmas decor.
Life can be simple and joyful.
You just have to try.
