Look What I Did Today

Lately I have been feeling like our home is a little barren. When we first moved in I really enjoyed the lack of stuff everywhere, especially after years of tiny, tight, crowded apartments, but now I am over it and I want our home to have a more cozy feel. I have decided it will take years to accumulate the furniture and accessories needed to properly fill this home. Anyway, today I made this to help fill the emptiness:It is a wreath made out of pages from a book. Originally I was going to hang it over the door to our pantry in the kitchen, but it turned out a little bigger than I thought it would. I love it (it looks even better in person) and Scott thinks it looks like I hung trash on our wall. So what do you think? No worries I won't cry if you think it is ugly or weird and it won't change my love for its awesomeness. I am still undecided on its location. I think that is one of the hardest things about our new home, I never know where to hang stuff.

Here are a few more shots to help you decide. The chair is not usually there, but Logan wanted to be on it since he helped me hang all the stuff up. I really wish I had some kind of black entry bench or table there, but it will all have to be one step at a time.

I love the wreath; what a clever idea! I'm no good at figuring out where to put things, so you're on your own for that one!
Love always,
