Decorating in 3's!

Sorry I didn't get this posted yesterday like I wanted.
Our whole day was thrown out of whack,
and off schedule.

I love the grouping of three.
I am an extremely symmetrical kind of girl.
When I was a teenage I put up glow in the dark stars all over my room.
I was determined to be random and just throw caution to the wind and put them where ever.
I thought I had been successful, until it was time to go to bed and I turned off the lights.
All of my stars were in straight lines on a diagonal.
Symmetry is in my genetics, it is part of who I am.
My Dad was a draftsman, and he was exactly the same way.

This grouping works great for me.
It is an odd number of items, which I love.
And it doesn't look like a triangle, thank goodness.
Originally I was going to put the picture of my sweet boy directly on top of the "S",
but then it did look like a triangle.

Don't mind the empty apothecary jar,
I haven't figure out what to put in it for summer

The shelf is still in need of a little love, but I think it is a great start.

Looks great! That is hilarious that you did your glow-in-the-dark stars in diagonal rows. Wish that came naturally to me. I had a hard time keeping my crayons within the lines! :)
