However, this morning I've had enough! I'm taking a stance against my winter blues and giving myself a spring time colour injection and a jolly old kick up the backside!
I know Spring is still a little while off but I figured I'd give the coming of the new Season a little encouragement and start with a Spring clean of the apartment (yes....in Winter). A little freshen up is what I need and when everything around me is a little more organised and focused, so is my mood.
I popped out to the flower shop and picked me up some mood elevators. They come in the form of some beautiful Dutch Tulips in a delicious shade of red.
The lady in the shop gave me like a million tulips for 6 euros!!! I'm talking TONS of tulips!! I've scattered them around the apartment and am not only thrilled at how beautiful they are, but find the thought of so many tulips so ridiculously over the top that I laugh just thinking about it!
You can see in these pictures that it was a very grey morning when I woke and put my camera to work. I think the little flowers really do a marvellous job of breaking up the dull light of the room.
There is something quite magical about these flowers, I really find them enchanting!
It really is the warmth and light from colours that makes me feel good, being surrounded by luscious vivid colours really is my medicine. I guess thats why I couldn't stop with the flowers and continued my energy boost by unpacking the colourful candles my family sent me for Christmas.
A rainbow of colour with the glow of the flames. Just what I needed!
Finally I threaded some string and added some beads to this little heart that my sister had also sent me for Christmas.
It's constant reminder of the colour and love that I have in my life!
It turns out whilst writing this post the sun has put its hat on and had come out to play! Smiley faces all round! :-)
Hope you're all doing splendidly?
