4 months later!

Whoever knows what to put above cupboards? I don't! Ok, most of you probably have nicely decorated above-cupboard areas, but I haven't for 6 years. If you know me you know that I am beyond slow in 1.Decideing on any house decor, and 2.Once I've decided, acting on it.

When Bryan and I had our art show in November, I saw this idea in the gallery of just hanging balls from your ceiling. And that's when I decided that is what we would do with our above the cupboard area. And now is when I acted on it.


I have another annoying personality trait. When I spend all day cooking a big fancy gourmet meal, I sit down to it and don't really want it anymore. Or it doesn't sound good or taste good. Or all I think about are the flaws. I'm kind of that way with decorateing. After Bryan hung the balls we sat on the couch for an hour trying to tell each other how much we liked them. But there was no enthusiasm. What is wrong with us??

I like your decorating ideas. Those balls are way better than putting baskets of flowers or ivy, or some other typical Utah Mormon family decoration. Here's to everyone who dares to think outside of the Utah Mormon decorating box!

Looks much better than my tins and noodles! It's very fitting with your decorating style!

I'm with you on hating my own meals.....it just comes with the territory, I think.

They look cool! I would like to see a picture from a further distance.

jess, i love you're tins and noodles! and really i hope everyone knows that i don't dislike flowers or nests above the cupboards, more like i just overanalyze decorating to the point that i'm kind of crippled, and have to make simple decisions. and to be honest, the style we've chosen to decorate in makes it very hard to match it all together.
