Sometimes I arrange things in my mind. There are imagined combinations of colors and treasures. Sometimes it happens while I'm at work, sometimes as I am drifting into dreamland. Sometimes these intentions even make it to my ever present and very real to-do list.
This arrangment languished there all of last week- both in my mind and on my list.
The requirements were simple.
Vintage tin sitting unused. My favorite red.
Camellias blooming outside my window.
Now it is very real.
And really beautiful.
I think you should imagine it too and then make it. Find an old jar, an old tin can, something not meant to hold flowers. And fill it with something pretty. Come on- you deserve it.
