To distract myself, I hung a poster I had purchased recently at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. It's an image of Spring in Central Park by Adolf Dehn. I had it framed as soon as we returned and it will always remind me of a very special day.
Then I turned my attention to the mantle in the same room. I found a fabric art piece I had done a couple of years ago, pulled some pretty colored glasses of my mother's from the china cabinet, put a hydrangea blossom in each one and added some other items from around the house.
The hydrangeas have now turned many lovely shades of blue, green and purple!
I'm hoping that the forecasters' predictions are not fully realized and that the storm does not cause too much destruction. This is a good time to take a deep breath, keep in touch with loved ones and hunker down for the duration. I have a feeling that everything will be fine.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
