Still cleaning, and one thing just leads to another and another and another.
Today it was time to dust the mantel. I hadn't changed the decorations on it in a long time, so thought I'd change that up too.
I was wanting to use the mirror that has been sitting on my bedroom floor forever. I thought a random collection of silver containers might make an interesting arrangement with it. Of course that meant I had to polish silver. Since the mirror has a sort of patina finish though, I left some of the tarnish on the silver too...you know...artistically. ;)
I wanted something vaguely end of summer, but not too Fall-ish, as we don't have Fall weather yet. When I was at Michael's yesterday looking through their on-sale floral stems, I saw stems of cotton bolls. The end of summer is cotton-harvest time where I grew up, so I picked up a couple of stems to add to an arrangement.
I may play with it a bit more. I know it looks asymmetrical, but since the television is on the wall just to the left, I don't like the left side to look too heavy or closed off.
Tomorrow I am having someone come to do some of the heavier chores. And she starts early, so I'd better not stay up too late. I will continue to declutter and organize while she is working.
I'm tired of moppin' this damn moose! :)
