Magnolias and Feathers

Golden Spray Painted Magnolia Seed Pod Christmas Decor: Grow Creative

I saved these magnolia seed pods from our last trip to southern california - ya, about a year and half ago- yikes.  It was time to make something pretty with them!  Hello gold spray paint and girly ribbon!

So the plan is to use these as Christmas Tree Ornaments or a string them up for a Christmas Garland.  It may take me another year-and-a-half to decide which one to make!

Well, my day got off to an awesome start with me dropping a gallon of liquid detergent on the front step and it exploding every where...... and then my boots fell apart.  sigh.  One of those days I suppose.

Sometimes it seems like it's harder to be happy when you are supposed to be the most happy- like around Christmas time.  I think it has to do with expectations.  If I expect my life to be perfect, then yes, I will be disappointed.  But I don't want to expect things to go wrong all the time either.  So here's to finding that happy medium, hoping for better things to come while being content at the same time.
