A Little Piece of Ribbon Goes a LONG Way

So--maybe you might remember--a little while ago I bought this little tree to hang on my front porch.

I loved it in the store--but when I hung it up--it was missing something.  So I scrounged around and found this PATHETIC piece of ribbon for it--(Sadly--it was the best I could do at the time).

Exhibit A:

Blah, Blah, Blah!!  BORING!!

I LOVED the tree in the store--but it was just missing something as it hung there on my house!!  And I was starting to think that I had made a mistake in buying it!  I really was NOT HAPPY with it.

So I decided to try a new ribbon to see if that livened things up for my little tree.  I bought some fun green limey green ribbon at Walmart--and let me tell you...I AM SO HAPPY!!!

Exhibit B:

All of a sudden the whole world makes sense!  And I am once again IN LOVE WITH MY TREE!

I know this is really such a LITTLE thing in the grand scheme of life--but sometimes isn't it the LITTLE things that really make a BIG difference?

Now I think it just brighten's up the whole entry way to my house!

And just because I love Before and Afters...Here We Go:

Before / After

Aaah.  I will sleep better tonight.


  1. Hi, Sharon, This is the second try to tell you we like your blog and we think the new ribbon is awsome. Sure glad it only takes a ribbon to help you sleep better at night.
    Love, Two who love you lots!!

  2. LOL! Oh dear me. We are more alike than you know. I can't tell you how many hours I spend trying to shut my brain off when all it wants to do is solve some design challenge. LOL! Working on your book post now.


  3. I am the same way! There's just that one thing that's not right and I have to fix it. Small things, like a new fuller piece of ribbon, can make all the difference sometimes. Looks great!

  4. I love that little tree. Where did you buy it?


Thank you for your comments!
