Another of my favorite finds at the annual community center rummage sale was a set of six pretty vintage plates... ...creamy white with lavender and white flowers...just a touch of yellow and a brown leaf... There is a gold rim around the edge.... An unusual and interesting color combination... They are lovingly worn but no chips or cracks. So pretty.
It was a hot but clear day.... Enjoying the breeze off the lake this evening.
Dan headed back to school to continue studying for the BAR.... ...it is still so hard to see him drive off.
Tomorrow I will be cleaning up after the gang is all gone... Maybe there will be some time for art before the next family members arrive on Wednesday!
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.
