a little obsessed

Okay, so I have to admit something. I'm a little obsessed with pom poms. (Yes, I am sure you've noticed and I am just stating the obvious.) Why? I have no idea. Some people get fixated on chevron, burlap, or owls (the list goes on). I just happen to really like the texture and feel of Pom poms. I can imagine how much I'll hate them in a few years and/or months, but for now, I'll use the for everything under the sun. Sorry. It's not that I lack diversity, but new ideas for their use keep popping up. First there was the garland idea. Then the Christmas tree decor. Then even my packages got embellished with the fluffy little balls. 

What now? Well, I've been stalking these cute lil' pom pom flowers for a while.
(Images are from here, here, and here.)
Since Valentines Day is coming up, I used the opportunity to bring these bright little flowers into my house. I originally was going to make a large bouquet, but opted to keep it simple this time. Maybe I'll add to it for spring. :)

One fantastic blogger I like to follow posted a project where she converted an old vase into a lovely little piece of art. (Check out her blog, Sugar and Cloth, for some great ideas!) Thanks Ashley for the inspiration!  It made a perfect home for my pom poms.  :)

More LOVE-ly projects to come!

Can I just say one thing. When I first opened this entry with my iPhone, the print was so small that I saw "porn porn". Thank goodness I enlarged because I knew my eyes were definitely playing tricks on me! And now I know I must follow through with that eye appointment that I have been putting off for so long. This being said, were you a cheerleader?
