I set up this little arrangement to inspire me. I was thinking 'simple'.
A jug of water with lemon and cucumber sitting out will remind me to drink often.
A single candle because it is murky outside today. It's a token gesture really as it is not about light to read by or work by. It has more life in it than the electric light on which I depend and which I am grateful for but it means something else, something more, something elemental.
A card which has happy associations.
And a hyacinth for its delicious scent and because it is a living thing.
Elemental things - water, fire, scent and memory.
Have you thought about the real meaning of the things you choose to have around you? How do they make you feel? And can you get rid of some of the meaningless stuff that is in your precious space?
I have this grouping on the dining table but it could be by your bedside, or a place where you see it as you come in the front door, or on a favourite shelf.....or all three.
Where will you put yours?
And what are the things that will lift your spirits?
