I also put some succulents on the window sill. I got these from my best friends wedding. They are wonderful!
Feeling Like Home
As most of you know, I am hardly ever in Kansas City because I'm in school in Tennessee. That being said, when I am home for the summer, I have the hardest time figuring out where to put everything. It's like shoving two rooms in to one. I really like to display things. I find that ordinary things have so much beauty. For example I have foreign money framed and hanging on my wall. I find them to be beautiful. So, I wanted to find spots for things while also displaying them. Then an idea popped into my head. My mom had given me these old drawers from a sewing machine that had belonged to me great-grandmother. She was going to get rid of them, but I kept them because I figured I would be able to find some sort of use for them. And sure enough I did. I set the drawer on its side on one of my window sills. I then placed lipstick, nail polish, a seashell from spring break, and a jar of buttons inside. Easy enough.
I also was able to finally put up my beautiful map that I received for my birthday. I stained the frame and attached the map. I am so in love with this!
