Since you asked:
to throw a perfume on the violet, to smooth the ice, or add another hue unto the rainbow, or with taper-light
to seek the beauteous eye of heaven to garnish, is wasteful and ridiculous excess."
~William Shakespeare, ca. 1595
Yup, that's us.

The simple things in life...
I had an opportunity the other day to be absolutely simple over one of my favorite things. I love these little old forget-me-not flowers that you find from time to time, although not as often as we used to. I did have the good fortune to come upon a few bunches of them recently, and after handing a couple off to a friend who is more foolish for them than I am, I dawdled around with them and this is the result.
I made a big mess, but it was worth it! This involved pinking scissors, vintage crepe paper printed with little flowers, old tulle, and lots and lots of pleating (the only tedious part). Once assembled, they are the cutest darn things around...very spunky if I do say so myself!
What's your latest-greatest-favorite thing you've done lately?
