A Practical Centerpiece.

A few weeks ago I read this post by The Pleated Poppy.
If you haven't had a chance to visit Lindsey's blog I suggest you do so.
She makes some super cute stuff and her house is beautiful.
If I could build a dream house I would make it look similar to hers, especially the bathrooms.
I could just hang out in them for hours.
Ok, moving on.

In the post I mentioned she gave a tour of her dining room.
In the middle of the dining room table she placed things her and her family use daily.
What a simple, perfect idea for a centerpiece, don't you think?
I'm always looking for something to spruce up our table and nothing seems quite right.
Flowers are pretty, but die quick.
Everything I find is either too expensive, too small, or too large.
So I took Lindsey's idea and gathered things from around the house and Voila!
The shakers and candle were up in the cupboard, my sister gave me the tray, the flowers are from the backyard, the napkins were on sale at Target, and the starfish keeps them from blowing away.
Now I no longer have to get up from the table because I forget salt and pepper or napkins.
It's the little things that make me happy.
