Texas left me with one great lesson, and this was the practice of
illusion. This culture was absolutely the pinnacle for capturing
fineness of living. There was a great dedication on every side for
working toward seeing to an arrangement for orderly visual
experiences. As we go through this world each one of us has their
own problems and duties, rare and of great importance to ourselves.
If we can look for ways to bring nature's creation to our use for
lifting our spirits, then we have an armor to fortify our mind.
When circumstances become more difficult, sometimes, one just has to
think about this a little more.
This is the reason for this small area in
my home. It is in a middle room which is passed often on the way to
other rooms. By placing this little world of green at this place during
the winter months, there is a subtle and quick viewing of a fresh
promise of spring. The winter month's with less sunlight have been
medically documented as to working against one's mental well being.
This light coming in the glassed door here happens because of the glass
enclosed tiny atrium beyond that, my husband built for me. Even a small
amount of light like this on a north room is welcome when one is shut in
with chores, children, and wintertime work.
The tablecloth is a green plastic over
another patterned green fabric. The plastic cloth cost me two dollars at
the dollar store. The color is the thing. I, at one time used
grass green sheers over the windows but, after 26 years they gave
out, and I've never been able to find that same color again. It will pop
up sooner or later though. The green light coming through the windows
via the sheers makes the area even nicer.
Hobby Lobby has a number of small water
fountains also, which could go here as well. They are not
expensive, some are for thirty (30) dollars.
