Are you a mover and a shaker?  Let me explain the question.  Are you one of those people who start out cleaning and then start moving things around?  Maybe you move things around and then clean.  Sometimes I do this for inspiration and sometimes I do it because it just needs to be done.  (When things don’t “feel” right…I move them until they find their permanent home.)

This week was one of those times.  I had never  found a good spot for the little (junkin’) German canisters that I bought.  Then it dawned on me.   They might fit…where I keep my cooking utensils, olive oil and s & P.  I was so excited when they did.  I wanted them on the counter…where I could see them all the time…but I didn’t want more stuff on the counter.  Did I lose ya?  No?  I knew I wouldn’t.  You are Dirt Roaders after all.  You can track a rabbit…down any trail.  😉

Okay…so…then this package came  in the mail.  It was from Pick Your Plum.  Do you know about them?  Oh. My. Goodness.  The best baker’s twine…in the history of ever.  It’s so pretty…I didn’t even want to open it for a few days.  Then I decided that I wanted it in my kitchen…not in the craft room in the basement.  I mean…I wouldn’t be able to gaze upon it.  (btw:  Pick Your Plum is not paying me to say this…I am because I was so pleased with their product.)  Anyway….I don’t have one of those twine holder thingies…so I used my Martha Stewart over the cabinet towel rack and some garden twine.  It works for me.

Sooo…..then I noticed that I still had daffodils on our farmhouse table in the dining room. (They were fake…by the way.)  Now…that being said…if you still have some out…wonderful.  It’s still spring and if you want to leave yours out all year…I respect that.  It’s your house…live it up the way that you want. I just had the itch to change mine up.  So, what does any self-respecting foodie do when she needs fresh “flowers?”  Herbs of course.  I love the way that the oregano and spearmint pop against the white.  Adorbs.

Last…but not least I decided that my olive bucket needed something in it.  My sweet Mr. and our kids gave it to me for Mother’s Day.  I love…lovity…love it.  So, I stuck some lavender in it.  Impressive…I know.  😉

Well…those are just a few little things.  They don’t actually make me happy because life is not about stuff.  Blessings, like the grace of God, the strong hugs from my husband and the sweet snuggles of my children truly make me happy.  These few little things, that I have for now, they just make me smile.
