Over that, each one got a centerpiece of something vintage and precious.
While I was in a gluing frame of mind, I added some trees to old spools and prettied them up too.
There are days when a having a simple project that has no goal other than being lovely, can be calming to the soul. I didn't want to have to think much, or plan, just let my fingers rifle through my dishes of jewels and flowers randomly adding dainties to some sparkly Christmas things.
It was just what I needed. A day to be alone with myself and my thoughts, to work out some worries. I always think better when my hands are busy.
By the time I was done, I had a full table of delicate pastel pretties. And a happier outlook.
