Finally home after our whirlwind trip to Florida to celebrate my father in law's 90th birthday! It was great to be together with our family for a few days although it was incredibly cold for Florida.....26 degrees this morning!
The beautiful Cathy Penton charm above was received from the fabulous Julie of Being Ruby.... I was so lucky to be one of the winners of her give away in November. I have tied a beautiful blue vintage silk ribbon to my inky blue Paris charm....The ribbon came all the way from France and was part of the paper bundle that I purchased from Corey at Tongue in Cheek Antiques.....Thank you again Julie and Corey! Don't they look perfect together?
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
