Simple Is Beautiful

Hello, friends!

I stopped in our local market this weekend for some groceries

and picked up these cheery coral carnations while I was there.

The simplest things can really brighten up a Monday, don’t you think?


What things do you do to make Mondays more lovely?

Simple Is Beautiful


  1. So sweet and simple… love it!

  2. Welcome, Mondays! I love opening the windows wide when making up the bedroom and cleaning the bathroom. Fresh air, sometimes rather breezy and bracing, swirls in to start the morning right … and everything seems to sparkle.

  3. Change from my nightgown to jeans/sweatshirt before going to the barn to do chores.
    I have been known to do chores in my nightgown. The animals don’t seem to mind.

    Flowers bring a smile to the heart! I love them! I like to look at the sun and mountains from the back porch/ window. Joy comes from the simplest of things!!

  5. Love the green mason jars…haven’t seen those before =) Now I’m on the hunt.
    On Monday…I try not to run any errands just stay home and take care of things there….Seems to help my week go better.
    Errand free Monday =)

  6. I love the spot of color! I need to buy myself flowers more often.

  7. Simple little joys are the best. I love to paint…any day of the week. :-) And to reorganize some corner of the house, to make it feel more cozy. It’s so much fun!

  8. I like to light up a new scented candle. Yum!

  9. Your flowers look so pretty! We are on the same wavelength. I bought some white tulips at the grocery store last week. They are simple, but made me happy.
    Love the green Ball jars.. I hope I find them in Ohio before Spring is over.

  10. Amazing how just a few sweet blooms can brighten a room (and our outlook). Love it!

  11. I love a pop of color too and although I’m not a fan of carnations, I have to admit the ones in your photo make that space shout, “I’m happy!” What gets me through a Monday? COFFEE, and more coffee. (Seriously, I drink the stuff all day long.) A clean desk, (very rare) and a great smelling candle. The eucalyptus mint candle at Bath and Body works smells clean and fresh and there is nothing like having a fresh smelling space.

  12. The town recently opened a new Y and I joined with my neighbor. We are on the third week of going for the early morning water aerobics class. The pool area has a wall of windows and faces east. Working out while watching the sun come up is becoming a delightful habit.

    I have started buying a small bunch of flowers once a week and spread them out around the house. It is lovely to walk around and see a sprig of color here and there.

  13. Oh, I love that tiered tin tray! Those flowers look absolutely charming. :)
