|My Golf Ball Collection|
The primary reason that I ended up in Florida is that my SO is an avid golfer and he wanted to play golf every day. He had started finding lost golf balls at his country club in fabulous colors and I said I wanted them. I had been putting them on my bone inlay table in my living room and thinking about what to do with them. (And BTW, he disinfects them soaking them in bleach before bringing them inside).
So I decided to see if I could incorporate golf ball decor in my Chinoiserie home just for fun. I took it as a little challenge to see if golf balls and tees could be chic. Trust me, don't search golf ball decor on Pinterest unless you want a really good laugh. If you want a chuckle, go for it.

I ordered these pretty golf balls from Amazon.

And I found these Lilly Pulitzer ones on eBay -

And 100 pink bamboo tees from Amazon -

Did you know that Rit has a tutorial on dyeing golf balls? Aren't the colors beautiful?
I am still waiting on those two color ones from Amazon - apparently they do not think golf balls are essential as I have been waiting for three weeks. UPDATE - I just got an email that they arrive on Friday.

So perhaps this is what one does to amuse oneself while staying at home? Next up - toilet paper couture.
