gloom blooms

I’m chasing away the gloom with fresh blooms.
It’s been rainy & gray around here, which I’m not complaining about at all since we desperately need the water.
This pop of yellow in the kitchen brings some much needed sunshine.
My lawn is green again, which makes me smile.
BUT inside our home it started to feel a bit dark and drab so I sprinkled flowers all around.
The yellow tulips in this quick decor I created here perked this corner of the kitchen right up.
I spread the tulips into the family room as well.
Around the fireplace…
…and on the coffee table.
The flowers have brighten things quite a bit.
I got this little guy on sale after christmas & I thought it was the perfect transition for winter | valentines.
Of course I had to add flowers to my winter mantle in the living room with my new & old mercury glass you can read about here.
When I walk into a room the flowers totally make me smile.
Such a simple thing with such a big impact.
What do you do to chase away the winter blues in your neck of the woods?
Happy Nesting !
