To start I would like to express my gratitude for your kind and encouraging comments on my last post... ...for thinking of me and my coworkers and keeping us in your thoughts and prayers. ...Your support is deeply appreciated.
As we have all said before...change is good but not always easy.
Because things have been so busy this week there hasn't been much time for picture taking. No fears! Fortunately, with a little help from my friends and digging in my photo archives... I have a few pretty images to share!
The photo above was taken at dear Evi's home on New Year's Day. The little antique French basket pictured on the library stairs was to hold a drinking glass for Vichy water. I saw these little turn of the century baskets at the brocante when in Paris years ago but passed up my chance to buy one...I have regretted it since and coveted Evi's little basket carrier. I was delighted when Corey put several up for sale in her online shop, Tongue in Cheek Antiques and am happy to say one of these dear little basket holders is on its way to me from France!
Evi and I both love our bunnies... ...this one sits on a dresser in a corner of her living room...
Evi's husband sometimes calls her by the pet name Bee... ...(I forget why)...but one can find the bee motif frequently in her home... Evi...tell us that story again please!
More bunnies on the kitchen wall...
...and birds.... ...these wonderful burlap birds she got from Ballard Designs... ...don't they look charming flying about the chandelier in her dining room?
So there you have it... ...the birds and the bees...some bunnies... ...and a little photo inspiration and help from my friend Evi tonight! She is a never ending source of inspiration to me!
I hope you all have a good night's sleep and wake up refreshed and ready for a new day tomorrow! :)
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.
