The vintage suitcase looks a bit lost on the carpet of pine needles.... The straw hat with ivory grosgrain ribbon is quite old and a favorite in my collection of vintage hats... The silk fabrics in the two Victorian blouses are tissue paper thin and although in less than perfect condition...I love the colors in both...the pale blue and the light coffee colored one with the blue lining... Beautiful creamy lace... I'm a hopeless romantic...
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.
