blue shutters in england

July 22, 2013

A home in Camden, England to
rent for shoots and stuff.
I want the illuminated drapery so badly
I'd trade my lil' ballet slippers for it.

Isn't this place spare and zen?

Linen, hide, grainsack,
chunky knits...a quartet of lovely.
Loving how weathered the floors are.
No fuss.

I've strung rosaries round everything in our home for years,
yet above the tub seems genius.
Which reminds me.

As a teen occasionally bored in church,
my friend Cairena taught me to skim the hymnal
and simply add the words in the bathtub
to song titles...
HOW GREAT THOU ART in the bathtub.
JESUS LOVES ME in the bathtub.
HE LIVES in the bathtub.

While this place might bore the devil
out of some of you, I hear choirs of angels.

What a heavenly breeze this spare place
would be to scrub clean, yes?

  5. Looks like the perfect place to retreat and be quiet. I'd have to surrender a lot of my worldly goods to be in such a spare spot - but somehow I think I might not mind. Hope that there is an equally beautiful and peaceful place in your heart today. XOXO

  7. Fairy lights as drapery...LOVE IT! As for the rosaries I have them everywhere in my studio and home. I just love those simple little beads and crosses! Love worn floors and wish I had the nerve to try it since mantaining woods floors is work!
