At home – I can’t be without …

Over the last little while, I’ve noticed a couple of things around our home that I’m always giving special attention. They’re silly things, but it’s stuff like this I like spending a little time on. In no particular order … 

Fruit that matches the living room. I know. I can understand how one would perceive this as ridiculous, but there’s something about a big bowl of yummy plums that makes my living room feel happier. Oranges, apples, limes and bananas get their own bowl on the microwave. Where I can’t see them. We’re not so fancy however to always have cherries. But they were there, so I was all like, that looks well played. 

Properly chopped pillows. Just a little je ne sais quoi to add some fancy to the couch region. You first floof out your pillow so it’s not squashed, and then you karate chop it down the middle. This takes your pillows to a whole ‘nother level.

Ooooh, candles. Of all shapes and sizes. It’s really silly, but candles make me feel fancy. 

Last and in no way least, our two babies – Toshi and Juniper. I  fully realize our cats are not home accessories, but they’re a huge part of what makes our apartment a home. They are the epitome of lap cats. The moment you sit down, they’re up for a snuggle. No matter how crap of a day you’ve had, or what you did or didn’t do, these little bundles of fur always make us feel a little bit better.
