bringing the outside in

I've always loved fresh flowers. While they're a luxury, they can reallybrighten up a space and my mood. Once in a while I'll spread flowers all over the house in every nook and cranny I can find. To me, it's just as fun to spend energy making the small areas of our home more cozy and inviting as it is the larger, more public spaces. While I'm the first to admit that home is where the heart is, adding these little details can bring the outside in and make our home even sweeter.

Do you have simple ways to sweeten your space?
