Hey everybody! Hope y'all had a great New Year.
I've spent the last few days trying to get the decorations down, and find something to put in the empty spots.
My brain is saying "declutter", but the house looks so bare now.
I took down the magnolia leaves and okra pods from the mantle this morning. The okra pods were already dried when I put them up, and now the magnolia branches are petrified.
Instead of taking them to the trash right away, I plopped them in the hurricane sitting on the chest in the foyer.
Then, I noticed a silvery sheen on the leaves, and that the pods and leaves rustled when I moved them.
Strangely, I found that appealing, and decided to leave them there for the time being.
Now, I know y'all probably think I'm losing it...but as I stood there looking at them, I remembered hearing somewhere, that dead or dried plants in a home are bad Feng Shui.
Well, I can tell you that I know nothing about Feng Shui, and why that bit of information stuck in my head, I'll never know.
So, not wanting to start the New Year off with bad luck (I did eat black eyed peas and greens on New Year's Day),I looked up Feng Shui online Here.
In Feng Shui, there seems to be some distinction between dead plants and dried plants. Dead plants are bad and dried plants can be OK.
So, what do you think?
Are the magnolia branches and okra pods just dried, or flat out dead?
Should I throw them out?...
And no, I haven't been chuggin' the left over egg nog. :)
Hopefully, by my next post, I'll be organized, and have something interesting to show you.
Hugs, and let me know what you think about the dried or...dead plants.
I definitely don't need any bad Feng Shui.
