31 days of change :: day 24 {changing centerpieces}

Sometimes the best changes are the simplest changes.  

Take my mossy-little-tray, for instance... I bought the little tray and moss at Hobby Lobby over a year ago... I knew it would make the perfect centerpiece for the white pumpkins I purchased for my fall decor.  And it did.  

But then fall was over, and I wasn't quite ready to give up the mossy-little-tray... so I didn't.  I kept it around for my Christmas decor... and then my spring flowers... and then my Christmas in July party... and then this year's fall decor... and you get the picture.

Basically that mossy-little-tray hasn't moved an inch since last year.  But the contents nestled inside the mossy-little-tray change in the blink of an eye... and I love it.

What simple changes have you made in your own house that have the biggest impact?

I love that you took pictures of everything! I find that I always get a good idea for a blog post later and think to myself "I wish I would have taken a picture of x, y, z" - what an easy and awesome centerpiece. I don't really have anything that I usually do around the house yet - maybe once I'm settled in a little bit more I'll figure it out. Although last time I was home I had an idea to paint a door that leads to my patio red. So I'm pretty excited about that change - I think it will do a lot for the space :)
