It's all in the detail

So often time is spent concerning ourselves with how things look - getting the room perfectly decorated for that special occassion or party. It's great fun transforming a room or a garden but the costs can add up, and it can be so time consuming.

Concentrating on the smaller details can work just as well. Adding just a little prettiness or sparkle to a table, such as my new table confetti can keep the costs down, but make it extra special.

So next time you're having that party in the garden or meal with friends sprinkle a little fun on the table.

What sums you up?

I listed these collages on folksy this week and got some great responses to my forum post asking which one sumed people up most....so I thought I would see what you do?

Do you.....

Or do you......

Or perhaps you do both!!!!

I only sing and dance when no-one is around (expect for my kids - who probably wish that I wouldn't!!!)

Would love to hear what you do.
