What I didn't count on was

Anywhooo.... let's get to the good stuff.
I bought these two galvanized buckets a while back at the Target One Spot but couldn't figure out what to do with them. We've got this awkward niche spot on our stairs that nothing seems right for but I put them there anyway along with some bottles covered in chalkboard paint (thanks, Pinterest), a lantern from my parents' anniversary party and some stray picture frames. Well, that is until my delirium-infused trip to Wally World turned into a decorating mission.
I ended up buying some fake flowers and a big block of the green foam stuff. Must say, despite this terrible "after" pics, I smile every time I see it on my walk up the stairs.
And while I was wandering the faux florals, I found this little basket - perfect for toilet paper in our downstairs bath (which seriously lacks any storage).
I also found this pretty hammer vase and decided to fill it with more flowers and stems and such. Then a "love is all you need" canvas hopped in my cart, because what home is complete without that?
|The yellow flowers were from a student (not fake!), which reminded me that there ARE good days in teaching. Just not enough for me to stay.|
That's all for now so I'll leave you with this adorable picture of Milli, my decorating assistant.
