Sometimes...

It's the little things that make you a little more content. I'm still adjusting to apartment life and small spaces. Our ceiling fan had the traditional (from the hardware store) pull. When I bought some closet fresheners (Marshall's) they were wrapped pretty with a ribbon and a plastic "crystal bobble". I saved them both and one day decided the bobble would look nice on the fan pull. So I snipped the ugliness off (wish I had remembered to take a before shot) and tied the bobble on. Here's how it looks now...


For whatever reason, taking pictures is really hard in this apartment.

I was, also, inspired by Denise at Look Beyond The Picket Fence, to bake an apple pie. I wanted to make what she had made but I only had frozen pie crust. I'm still getting use to my electric oven here and it got a smidge over done. Hopefully it still tastes good. I'll spare you a visual.

Hope you're all having a great day!!!
Hugs!

Amazing how something so little can make a difference, isn't it?!!

Great recycling! It looks very nice!

Apple pie sounds so yummy. Today has been colder and rainy here-warm from the oven dessert sounds delish.

Your apple pie sounds like my grilled cheese. Mike says I always burn one side. I say that's how they are supposed to be. lol
I love those little baubles--very clever!

Adding small bits of beauty to your space is such a pick me up. I think adding that bauble was brilliant. Now I'm looking at my chain pulls with an unfriendly eye :-)

Enjoy your pie.

I am sure in time you will get used to everything I know its easy for me to say. Adding personal touches like this to your surroundings will soon make everything warm and cozy. best wishes kim. Julie.C

The bobble looks good! I have a red glass bird hanging from my fan. Mmm, apple pie ... yum. You just reminded me it's time to take my annual trip to the chocolate factory for a caramel apple :)

It is the little things that add so much to our lives! The pull is a nice added touch. I could use a few closet freshners, too! Thanks for the idea! Sorry, to hear about your pie. I hope the next one comes out perfect! My daughter went apple picking over the weekend. I see apple muffins, apple pancakes and everything apple for the next few weeks.
