    Hi Michele,
    I read many decorating blogs but have never left a comment before. I just want to say how much I love your blog and every day I look forward to your beautifully curated inspiration photos and quotes. I also am drawn to the French Nordic serene decor style and have been slowly changing my own home decor to align with this design. You have such a beautiful spirit that flows through your blog and I just want you to know how much I enjoy your posts.
    Warmest regards,
    Amy

      Amy, thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I hope you leave more since your words of kindness have touched my heart. It’s wonderful to have you here. After all these years, blogging is still an odd thing (especially in 2019!), yet it’s this mysterious connection with kindred spirits that is most gratifying. Peace to you.

    Love all the inspiration offered here! Is there a source for the wonderful felted reindeer garland? ( at least it looked like it may be garland) I kept clicking every link I saw but it just kept taking me to pinterest… Thanks in advance

    Michele, I have followed your blog for many years now. You have amazed me many times, especially your journey with your mother and sister a few years ago. I started to follow you after I retired, hard to believe 31 years as a Welfare Case Manager. I was very sick at the time from several genetic conditions that I was just learning about, I took care of my identical mirror twin in 2010 until she passed. My husband was wonderful, as was my disabled son in helping. Only my dear husband was progressing unbeknown to us to the ALZ world. You have made everything easier by sharing such lovely thoughts and such bravery. I got brave and did DNA testing only to find out DNA info for my health, invaluable. But, I also found out that I was 18% French from the Paris region and Brittany than English, Scottish, Irish, what a wealth of interesting things about ancestors. So thank you so much for your empathic spirit and sharing. Best always to you, Cathy

      Your words are precious to me, Cathy. And I can imagine how these valley times for your health and circumstances have led you into greater courage and capacity. We have been journeying together after all, and your readership has encouraged me and helped me feel less alone. I can’t claim to understand even a portion of how the Mystery works, but it does seem as though pure energy (and not physical presence) has potential even across fiber optics. Thank you for being here as my friend and sister on the journey. I salute your perseverance. Peace to you as you keep leaning into joy which is not dependent on outcomes. xox

    Dear Michele,
    What beautiful and calming images of Christmas!
    I have been following you now for a while and must say I always anticipate seeing what you have next for me to admire, and get inspired for my own home! You truly do inspire, and are lovely!
    Im intrigued by the little potted Christmas trees (to display on a table)
    Where can I purchase? Or are they easy to make? Where and how do I source in Canada? I live in Vancouver BC😊
    Thank you!

      Hi there! I love having you here and bringing joy to this lovely journey. If you are looking for live mini potted trees – I find mine locally and inexpensively at big box stores like Home Depot. For example, if you have such a store near you, look for a lemony cypress – so adorable and a gorgeous green. Williams-Sonoma also comes to mind since they offer such wonderful wreaths and live greenery – for example, here’s a tree: https://rstyle.me/+qDzuWzfiu0Va7lL3i3LYBA. You could certainly shop for beautiful urns or pots and add an artificial mini tree and moss to fool everyone! Here’s an inexpensive 2′ tree that could work in the right urn: https://rstyle.me/+wFiUPqx21b1Mp0FUwrmWFA Let me know if this is what you had in mind or if you have further quesstions.
