A Beautiful Life - Hooked on Tassels!


Melissa over at the Inspired Room is doing a great series of posts on living a Beautiful Life. Click on the link above or on my sidebar to hear all about it! This week's post is about feeling overwhelmed, and finding balance when your lacking the inspiration. My best therapy is painting. I find something to occupy my little one, turn on my painting music, (Enya, Il Divo, or Yanni). And I go to work. I go off into my own little world when I'm painting. Even if the house is upside down, it's all ok, because I painted something pretty! I recently started to get back into making tassels, hand painted ones too. And I'm hooked! Here are a few of my recent creations. Visit Hooked on Houses to see what everyone else is hooked on today!

I found you through the Hooked on Houses party today. (I posted about being hooked on play rooms)

Super sweet! Please tell me you have an etsy shop! I wanna buy one!

Maybe it's just for your "me" time with Yanni but you might want to share the tassel love!

Messy Jessy - I have been trying to answer your question. But for some reason I am not able to comment on your blog. Blogger isn't recognizing my sign in and I can't find an email for you! Anyway - yes I do sell my tassels on my website: www.MyHydrangeaHome.com

Dawn these are absolutely stunning. I love Yanni. I feel I can do anything better while listening to his music!

Just gorgeous.

Hi Dawn! I feel the same way about creativity. Sometimes I just have to leave the usual tasks behind in favor of creating something pretty!

Your tassels are lovely!!!
