With Spring retreating from sight and the signs of winter ( like 24 degree nights ) returning, I have been bringing some spring into our house. Trying to trick myself into feeling that it's here.
Embroidery hoops are one of those amazing little things that bring a immediate change to a space. Almost like art or photos... but with fabric.
My kind of art!
We are doing a little remodel on our bedroom...painted walls and pine trim, new door and window casings. Getting rid of the modular home seaming strips. It's amazing what a little facelift can do.
Then I poked my earrings through the lace and hung the necklaces from the tightener at the top of the hoop.
It hung up beautifully and the fabric didn't sag under the weight of the jewelry... something that I was worried about.
I sandwiched it between the other two hoops already on the wall and I am glad that I chose white. I can easily change out the coordinating hoops fabric as the mood strikes.
It makes me happy to wake in the morning and see such pretty things hanging at eye level. Picking out earrings to wear at 5:30 in the am just got a whole lot more appealing.
Now all we need is some new dressers and maybe a TV at some point in our lives.
