sacred in the everyday

March 15, 2011

So so good to see you!
I will be on an adventure this week
so less posting.

What I have in mind is
part business, part pleasure and...

Sometimes we need a departure from the everyday to
empty ourselves,
to breathe,
to learn,
and see our lives
with new eyes.
Ya know?

I do love the everyday though!
Just sweeping my kitchen floor can feel sacred.

My house was my studio as I snapped
images for you with the lovely
of the everyday in mind.

an inspiration board: prayers & encouraging words & vintage

prayer books and vintage rosaries bring peace

the mix makes me happy

'they have counted all my bones' cuts me to the soul

a design magazine and the scent of rosemary? mmm mmmm good.

i wear them

black leather

aging pages are beautiful....

anxiety often finds me at night...i cling to such thoughts...

whilst Sandy clings to my desk lamp.
(why oh why would i identify with this squirrel? shrink away!)

words are my life.

Thanks for listening and sharing
a few simple things I
find so lovely.

Any secrets for finding lovely in your daily life?

Peace to you right where you are.

  6. I love your squirrel!! That's so funny that you put that image in there too, amongst the others.

    I like to sit in my garden in the warmer weather. We have a swing seat, and I sit with a cup of tea and listen the birds and pray and think.

    And then I head back into the melee!!
