Who said decorating has to be expensive? The wall above my desk was bare, and I decided to fill it with something. I finally got it all up today! Read to the end to find out how much I spent…
Here is the end result followed by some closer shots:
Project total, if I’d had to buy all the supplies now: $32 and some cents. But because I had most everything already, just $13.07. That is some pretty cheap decorating. I may keep adding to it, but am pleased for now and like having something nice to gaze at while I’m writing papers.
What you wouldn’t know (unless you were me) is that there are lots of good memories and stories on this wall. Photos are from last year’s Europe trip, flowers on my grandma’s deck and the woods behind her house, and a college spring break trip to Charleston. My heart is warm.
On a completely unrelated note, yesterday marks one year since my mom’s first big surgery. There have been two since then, but a year ago she took the first brave step in the fight against breast cancer. She is amazing, and I am thankful for her life and for the way she enriches mine. I am thankful for technology and early detection, for good doctors, good health, good family and friends, and mostly for faith… which covers the distance the previous in the list could not.
