We're all on school vacation this week. (yahoo!!!!)
I have gotten so much done! Lots of cleaning and organizing. Lots of raking the gardens in
preparation for next month's planting.
Since I have accomplished so much this week, I rewarded myself
with a play date….with flowers of course. The grape hyacinth,
or muscari, as my European friends call it, are
putting on a splendid show. The narcissus compliment them nicely.
Vintage wooden crates make a great rustic backdrop and absorb the light. I am trying to be observant of things like this, as I am self-teaching myself photography.
Yesterday I found this amazing 1800's Wedgwood tureen (with lid) for 3.99. I knew it would become a
fabulous prop and a practical item for the dining room as I work on the renovation.
My grandmother's hankie became a picture perfect springtime backdrop.
Her spirit swirled around me as I lay the flowers down…
She loved planting a small patch by her back stairs.
So what soothes your soul?
Your garden? Cooking? Your family?
A little bit of everything?
Take half an hour out from your busy day today….create something, laugh out loud, relax, read.
You deserve it!
